These efforts are set to revolutionise and speed up the UK’s journey to Net Zero. Don’t miss these cutting-edge solutions at stand 5C44!

With 19% of the UK’s carbon footprint produced from energy used in heating, using gas boilers, Panasonic is leading the way in decarbonising existing building stocks with its renewable solutions. The future of heating is here, and it’s sustainable!

Enrique Vilamitjana outlined the company’s commitment to a sustainable future, highlighting Panasonic’s commitment to reducing global CO2 emissions by 200 Mt by 2050 through their Green IMPACT initiatives.

At InstallerSHOW, Panasonic unveiled the new Aquarea M Series range of air source heat pumps with TCAP technology, an industry game changer developed to meet the decarbonisation challenge. The new range uses R290 refrigerant which has a low GWP of only 3. The new Aquarea M Series range comes with capacities 9, 12, 16, 20, 25 and 30kW with the option of 300kW in cascade configuration. The M Series is ideal for installations in individual domestic homes, multifamily or light commercial buildings.

Aquarea M Series range with T-CAP technology offers unmatched efficiency and can operate in outdoor temperatures as low as -15°C and maintain capacity without a backup heater. One T-CAP unit can provide the same capacity at low temperatures as two other units without T-CAP technology, reducing the cost of materials and installation, and saving space.

The NEW Aquarea M Series offers ultimate flexibility, meaning that its Outdoor unit can be operated by itself solely with its remote control, if simple functions are sufficient. The Outdoor unit has the option of a control box or indoor unit to provide the perfect solution for each project.

The latest hydronic solutions show market-leading SCOP, SEER and DHW COP figures, have flow temperatures of up to 75OC and a top class ErP for heating.

Furthermore, the units have been designed to be faster and easier to install and more convenient for installers and residents, with the units being more compact and space-saving for homes with limited indoor space. Not only does the M Series deliver exceptional performance, but it also does so with minimal noise, ensuring maximum comfort.

Users can choose from flexible control options, including remote control only, or a control module for enhanced functionality. The Big Aquarea includes Wi-Fi connectivity for Aquarea Smart Cloud and Aquarea Service Cloud, multiple PCB features, demand control SG Ready, and can provide new cascade control with several BMS protocol options.

“We’ve achieved great success in residential solutions and are now expanding to meet the needs of diverse building types,” explained Enrique Vilamitjana, Managing Director of Panasonic Heating Ventilation & Air-Conditioning Europe. “The heat pumps are also manufactured in Europe, to speed up delivery into the market.”

Panasonic also announced new strategic partnerships with smart control leaders, Tado and Wiser to enhance home energy management and help reduce energy bills. “These partnerships allow us to offer our customers greater choice in their heating controls,” added Vilamitjana.

In a significant move to answer the demand for customer-focused aftersales servicing, Panasonic launched its Aquarea Service+ Maintenance Package. “We are thrilled to announce the expansion of our Service Partner network, providing Panasonic Aquarea Service+ maintenance packages throughout the UK,” explained Jose Alves, Regional Director for the UK, Ireland, and the Netherlands.

Furthermore, Panasonic has been investing heavily in HVAC&R future engineers to tackle the industry’s skills shortage. Panasonic’s four Centres of Excellence and its partnerships with fifteen FE colleges is helping younger engineers to face the changing landscape head-on. A fifth Centre of Excellence has now been planned for 2024/25. “We’re committed to developing the renewable skills required for a sustainable future,” said Alves.

Panasonic’s presence at InstallerSHOW 2024 highlights its focus on building a greener and more sustainable future through its partnerships and collaborations. Discover the future of heating and cooling with Panasonic at Stand 5C44!
