2018 represents a year of important celebrations for Panasonic, which will celebrate, in March, the centenary of its foundation. The Air Conditioning division came to life in 1958, with the launch of the first domestic air conditioner and then, in 1973, with the introduction of the high efficiency air-water heat pump. In 1975, Panasonic entered the European market, starting an uninterrupted path of success. The continuous research has brought the first model of air conditioner to evolve, becoming what is today Etherea, top of the range of the residential line. Starting from 2010, Panasonic has introduced innovative solutions for residential and commercial applications in Europe. These include the “Aquarea” air-water heat pumps and, for commercial and industrial applications, the variable refrigerant flow systems “ECOi” and “GHP”. What does 2018 reserve? The company will be present at the exhibition Mostra Convegno Expocomfort (Milan, 13-16 March) to illustrate its new products: among these, the compact Mini VRF ECOi systems and the new commercial line PACi with R32 refrigerant.
