Pansonic Provides Integrated Heating And Cooling Solution For Hotels


Panasonic Heating and Cooling offers a range of heating and cooling solutions and controls, designed specifically to equip hotels with efficient heating and air condition systems.

Panasonic is committed to providing flexible air conditioning and heating solutions to accommodate the various demands of hotels, whatever the size. Hotels must deal with the conflicting demands of their customers, simultaneously, ensuring there is domestic hot water ready for when the guests want it, and comfortable temperatures in every room. By nature, hotels must offer their guests high-performance air conditioning and heating systems.

Panasonic understands how important it is to minimise disruption in hotels when renovating or refurbishing the building, which is why its solutions allow equipment to be replaced in stages, by substituting the various elements without interfering with the normal activities of the hotel. The systems also guarantee minimal noise emissions when active.

Where comfort, satisfaction or health and safety is concerned, the customer is always at the forefront of Panasonic’s design process. This is why Panasonic developed an innovative pump down system that helps detect and prevent refrigerant leaks, guaranteeing the protection of end-users, the buildings’ occupants and the environment. By ensuring compliance with EN378 regulations and safety standards, the building will be rewarded with one point on the BREEAM environmental assessment method/rating system.

Hotel remote control for optimal comfort
Panasonic’s hotel remote optimises the comfort of hotel guests. With its attractive design and adaptable colour scheme, it is also the only remote control that can operate and program different inputs and outputs. This includes cord switches, lighting, presence sensors, curtains and blinds, as well as the heating and cooling system, whilst simultaneously offering a direct connection to standard BMS protocols such as Lon works and Modbus. The Panasonic remote controller significantly reduces the cost of investment for the hotel operators, as it can manage a number of other features (such as blinds, lighting etc.) so that they do not have purchase a number of other control systems. It also means installing only one control system, considerably cutting the cost of installation as well.

Panasonic’s EcoNavi sensor is most effective in meeting rooms, restaurants, gyms and other leisure spaces within hotels. It can detect any presence in the room and the level of physical activity. This will trigger the system functions automatically and discreetly to adapt the air conditioning system, improving guests’ comfort and optimise energy savings. If no activity is detected during a defined period, the EcoNavi sensor will shut down the unit or switch to another, previously defined temperature, suitable for a vacant space.

A full range of heating and cooling solutions
Panasonic offers one of the widest ranges of solutions for air conditioning, hot water production and ventilation available today, meaning it is able to provide the best solution to meet the requirements of all projects. Whether electric or gas, all Panasonic solutions will provide dramatic reductions in a hotel’s CO² emissions, and a boost in energy savings, which translates to substantial financial savings.

The gas and electricity solutions
Panasonic’s gas heat pump, ECO G, is an ideal heating solution designed to meet the high demands of heating and hot water in hotels. When a large quantity of hot or cold water is required, or when the power supply is not optimal, ECO G is a great alternative option.
Using natural gas or propane, the Panasonic’s gas VRF system only needs a small single-phase electrical supply (about 1kW). This reserves the building’s main power supply for other essential electrical uses, and avoids the need to change the supply transformer, for example, or to increase the power supply to feed traditional systems – which can be costly.

Panasonic’s Electrical VRF system, designed and developed with hotel solutions in mind, is available in a two or three pipe range. The three pipe range allows for heating and cooling simultaneously, utilising Panasonic’s heat recovery box. This is the smallest recovery box on the market, which does not require a power supply due to its connection with an indoor unit.

Depending on the project requirements, both gas and electrical systems can be combined to activate the properties of either solution, ensuring the most cost and energy efficient solution is being implemented at all times.

Reasons why Panasonic provides the best solutions for hotels:

• Complete multi-energy solution

Panasonic offers the widest range of solutions for heating, cooling, hot water production, and ventilation, running on gas or electricity.

• Flexibility and adaptation

The modularity and the flexibility of Panasonic systems allow them to easily adapt to any technical or architectural constraint.

• Fluid recovery station

Panasonic has developed two innovative vacuum systems that help detect refrigerant leaks which guarantee the protection of end-users, the buildings’ occupants and the environment.

• A green solution – lower CO² emissions

The energy savings that these solutions allow, combined with the possibility of choosing between electricity and gas, enable a significant reduction in CO² emissions.

• Renovate without interfering with the activities of the hotel

Panasonic solutions allow equipment to be replaced in stages, by substituting the various elements without interfering with the normal activities of the hotel. This minimizes disruption to your guests.

• Future extensions

The systems’ modularity makes it possible to easily extend them.

• A highly-efficient and top quality service

Panasonic ensures a highly-efficient operation with a partial load of 30%.

• Maximum comfort and satisfaction

Panasonic has worked on a wide variety of high-profile hotel projects, including world-famous 5-star hotels, across Europe, with fantastic results. The performance of Panasonic solutions in terms of the comfort they provide and the minimal noise emitted is a great contribution to client satisfaction.
