Panasonic is serious about providing homes, offices, and living spaces with cleaner air through its new air conditioning products that can actually inhibit growth of bacteria, viruses, and allergens and even purify air.

The new Panasonic Split-type air-con features patented air purification system called the Nanoe technology. This air purifying innovation uses nano-sized electrostatic atomised water particles to deodorise, inhibit bacteria and virus growth, remove dust and purify the air in the room even when the cooling function of the air-con is turned off.

To emphasize its pro-consumer’s health objective, the company, which has been making air-conditioners for 60 years, announced a global campaign “Quality Air for Life” that focuses on the importance of maintaining the quality of air that people breath indoors.

Hiroyuki Iwaki, Panasonic Malaysia Managing Director, discussed why the quality of air is equally important similar to food and water as factors contributing to the overall health of a person.


On the average, a person breaths 18 kg of air every day. Since most people spend 90 percent of their day indoors, it is vital to have quality of air to stay away from diseases caused by toxic contaminants, such as allergens, carbon monoxide, and second-hand smoke.

“Panasonic is inclined to provide health benefit to consumers, particularly here in the Philippines, which suffers from air pollution. We are very much concerned about the health of people that is why we developed the Nanoe technology. It’s very important that we address the issue regarding pollution with our theme ‘Quality Air for Life,” said Iwaki.

The Philippines is currently among the countries with worst air pollution, having recorded air pollutant concentration of 130 micrograms per normal cubic meter (µg/Ncm) in terms of total suspended particulates (TSP) in the National Capital Region in 2015. Studies have linked air pollution to lung diseases and cardiovascular diseases.

The new Panasonic split type air-conditioners all feature inverter technology that makes cooling of rooms faster while provides significant savings on energy use.

Panasonic inverter air conditioners have provided consumers with an average of P1,000 savings from electricity use based on their actual studies, according to Harry Sarmiento, business development head at Panasonic Philippines Airconditioner division.

Panasonic’s inverter technology is now found in the newly launched Panasonic window type air conditioners.

Though it does not feature Nanoe technology, the new window type inverter air-con boasts of features such as sleep mode, powerful mode, and anti-bacterial core filter.

Brand ambassadors for Panasonic appliances Gary Valenciano and daughter Kiana emphasized why products that help people live healthier lives should be a priority among consumers.

“Everybody today is conscious or aware of health—what is good for the body, what goes in the body. And I’m really glad that Panasonic isn’t hyping about how good their products are but the steps they have made to keep up with the needs of the times. They really listened to what people are complaining about. People want to go home to a place where the atmosphere helps the body recover especially after being outside and exposed to everything out there,” said Gary.

Kiana, who suffers from allergies, appreciates the fact that Panasonic is able to provide a good choice for consumers when it comes to finding the air-conditioner that would help make their families healthier.
