It’s not just since the advent of COVID that we’ve sought out air that’s cleaner and more pure than ever before. For decades, the benefits of fresh, clean, filtered air and water have been known to humankind. In fact, air purification, the reduction of harmful aerosols, and good ventilation more broadly are factors now commonly accepted to be effective in the reduction of airborne contaminants (like mould) and viruses.
But it hasn’t just been COVID dominating the headlines. As summers get hotter and longer, and surface temperatures across the globe continue to increase, the challenges of climate change live on. And yet, despite the demand, the market struggled to make available a single HVAC unit that combines cost-effectiveness with:
- Air purification capacity
- Compact size
- Both single-unit (split-system) and multi-split installation options
…and much more. That is, until now.
We’re excited to introduce you to some of the most exciting air conditioning units on the market today: Panasonic’s high-efficiency split- and multi-split systems including their exemplary nanoe™X air purification technology.
In this article, we’ll take a look at:
- What nanoe™X is
- What makes nanoe™X technology so desirable and different
- The benefits of nanoe™X technology in air conditioners
- How much a nanoe™X air conditioner costs
Ready? Let’s get you some high-quality air in your home or office space!
What is nanoe™X?
nanoe™X is Panasonic’s advanced air purification system, approved by the National Asthma Council’s Sensitive Choice Program. Panasonic 2-in-1 air conditioner units incorporating nanoe™X technology not only cool and heat your home, but clean, ventilate and purify your indoor air as well. Thanks to their unique construction and technology, Panasonic nanoe™X air conditioner units and systems eliminate harmful and unpleasant allergens, odours, viruses and more while inhibiting up to 99% of common bacteria including types causing mould.
Pretty impressive, huh?
What makes nanoe™X different?
Until now, no air conditioning unit has combined powerful air purification technology with the ability to cool and heat your home or office. The specific functionalities that make this technology so impressive relate to its ability to inhibit bacteria and viruses – both on surfaces, and in the air.
Unlike standalone air purifiers, Panasonic nanoe™X actively spreads ions through the air and onto surfaces. These ions reach deep into the fibres of clothing, sofas and carpet to stop up to 99% of airborne and surface-located bacteria and viruses.
How does nanoe™X technology work?
nanoe™X is essentially Panasonic’s name for tiny, nano-sized electrostatic water particles that contain ions and Hydroxyl radicals. “Hydroxyl” describes a chemical group or ion that consists of one atom of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen – similar to water. These Hydroxyl radicals within the nanoe™X react to hydrogen (H) contained in pollen, bacteria, viruses, and odour compounds, altering their molecules and inhibiting them. Finally, the Hydroxyl radicals then return to air as water (H₂0).
Just imagine the peace of mind that will come from having a space as clean as it is comfortable. Plus… nanoe™X even continues cleaning the air while the cooling system isn’t operational – a huge bonus! Here are the three keys factors determining how this technology works:
- nanoe™X particles are generated and reliably reach bacteria and odours
- Hydroxyl radicals take away hydrogen from bacteria, denaturing their molecules
- Hydroxyl radicals return to the air as water (H₂0), having inhibited the bacterial activity
Panasonic’s new, high-efficiency 2-in-1 air conditioners can generate millions of nanoe™X particles, which constantly clean, condition and purify the air. Seven beneficial effects can be achieved with Panasonic nanoe™X, all of which are proven to lead to significantly better air quality within your home or office space.
What are the main benefits of nanoe™X?
There are three key benefits to high-efficiency Panasonic air conditioners incorporating nanoe™X technology, as compared with other split-system and multi-split system air conditioning units:
- Active deodorisation
Penetrating into the deepest parts of fibres, nanoe™X eliminates frequently encountered odours, creating cleaner and fresher spaces.
- Inhibition of bacteria and viruses
nanoe™X envelops and inhibits the activity of airborne and adhered bacteria & viruses, common mould, pollens and allergens.
- Moisturises and hydrates
Unlike other air conditioning units and systems which can leave your skin feeling dry and chapped, nanoe™X combines with natural sebum (natural skin oils) to coat the skin, leading to a smoother, well-hydrated complexion. These benefits stand in stark contrast to other split-system and multi-split system solutions which, while handy and largely energy-efficient (depending on the model), can end up recirculating odorous and/or unhealthy air.
How much does a nanoe™X Air Conditioner cost?
At the end of the day, you get what you pay for. While the upfront costs for a high-efficiency Panasonic nanoe™X air conditioner are likely to feel like a much higher investment level than your standard, entry-level split system, you’re unlikely to encounter this technology anywhere else. Put simply, it’s absolutely world-class.
