Panasonic - Buyers Checklist 2

What is Inverter technology? Why should you choose an Inverter Air Conditioner?
An Inverter Air Conditioning unit constantly adjusts compressor rotation speed to provide optimum performance at all times. This extremely precise operation enables quick cooling while reducing power consumption compared to conventional non-inverter units. Inverter Air Conditioning units are able to maintain a set temperature much more efficiently than a fixed speed unit.

Panasonic Inverter Air Conditioners provide exceptional energy-saving performance that ranks among the highest in the industry. This dramatically cuts electricity consumption and CO2 emissions, allowing an environment-friendly operation.

What is an Energy Efficiency Rating?
The Energy Efficient Rating was introduced to give consumers independent and standardised energy efficiency information to compare the performance of domestic appliances on an easy-to-read label.

The Energy Rating Label has two main features:
1) The star rating gives a quick comparative assessment of the model's energy efficiency - the higher the number of stars, the better the energy performance.

2) A number (usually shown as kilowatt hours kW/year) that estimates of the annual energy consumption of the appliance. This number is calculated from test results combined with the Australian average household usage estimates - the lower the number the better the energy consumption, and cheaper the running costs.

Visit www.energyrating.gov.au for more information.

The Energy Rating Label was first introduced in 1986 in NSW and Victoria. It is now mandatory in all states and territories to be displayed on refrigerators, freezers, washing machines, clothes dryers, dishwashers and air-conditioners (single phase only). Three phase Air Conditioners may carry an energy label if the suppliers choose to apply for one.

Location of the Air Conditioner units - both indoor and outdoor.
Because an Air Conditioner has two components - an indoor and outdoor unit - you will need to consider where both will be installed in your home when selecting your Air Conditioning unit. You will need to ensure the indoor unit will have a solid outdoors facing wall to be installed on. Given the indoor unit will be a fixed feature in your house or apartment, the aesthetic appearance is important. Choose your Air Conditioning unit wisely to ensure the design complements your home.

Make sure there is plenty of room around the outdoor unit so air can freely flow in and out of it. If you live in an apartment or in high density housing, ensure you have ample area for the outdoor unit to be installed.

Please consult with your local city council for any installation guidelines prior to making your purchase, as you may be required to have Council's approval prior to installation.
