Panasonic Appliances Air-Conditioning North America Launches the Latest Entry in Exterios Line of Ductless Mini-Splits and the Slim-Ducted Heat Pump

Panasonic Appliances Air-Conditioning North America launching the latest entry in their Exterios line of ductless mini-splits and the Slim-Ducted Heat Pump, an all-new mini-split product. The Slim-Ducted Heat Pump is a versatile new system that can provide heating and cooling solutions for the entire home, rather than just one or two rooms at a time using traditional single-zone systems. The Exterios XE series is Panasonic's most advanced Heat Pump system, delivering more efficient and versatile performance options for all HVAC customers, even in cold-climate conditions. The new Slim-Ducted Heat Pump assumes a low profile, as they can be hidden in floors or ceilings without disrupting the look and feel of a room. Serving as the newest product in Panasonic's HVAC lineup, this all-in-one heater and air conditioner is highly efficient in both the winter and summer, regardless of the function being performed. This commitment to energy efficiency is reflected in the inverter driven compressor and the DC fan motor, both of which allow for high efficiency and consistent performance. This system will be available in 5,000-7,000 BTUs for a multi zone, and 9,000-12,000 BTUs for single and multi zone HVAC solutions. Additionally, air flow can be increased to suit the customer's needs with the simple flick of the dip switch on the interior circuit board.
