Panasonic unveils new residential heat pumps


Japan's Panasonic has unveiled the Interios 1.5 Ton Central Heat Pump, a central heat pump system for residential space heating and cooling.

The new product comes in two versions: the Interios Low-Carbon, Hybrid Heating System with an outdoor heat pump unit and an indoor cased A-Coil, and the Interios All-Electric Central Heat Pump System, which is an all-electric system featuring an outdoor heat pump unit and an all-electric air handler.

“Interios is a game-changer in the heating pump revolution, with technology that allows homebuilders and renovators alike to deliver high performance projects easily and affordably,” the company said in a statement, claiming that the novel heat pump offers up to 300% greater efficiency and potentially 30% energy savings than conventional gas and propane heating systems.

The indoor unit measures 534 mm x 445 mm x 1143 mm, weighing 48 kg, with a cooling and heating capacity of 18,000 BTU and R410A refrigerant. At -15 C, the heat pump offers 11,000 BTU of capacity. It also features a Computational Constant Airflow function that automatically detects static pressure issues due to blocked coils, dirty filters, and duct kinks through an advanced algorithm.

“The electronically commutated motor (ECM reacts to these conditions, adjusting the output power and fan speeds to ensure optimized airflow,” the company said. “The heat pump unit is able to precisely receive and process signals from the communicating air handler to manage the air temperature and airflow inside a home and maintain them at the most comfortable level.”
