Panasonic announces it will only sell air conditioners using the eco-friendly R32 refrigerant in NZ from next year.

From autumn 2019, Panasonic New Zealand will only sell residential and light commercial air conditioning units using the R32 refrigerant.

The move comes after Europe made it compulsory to replace all fluorinated gases for environmental reasons by 2030.

“R32 is an innovative refrigerant in all ways imaginable – it’s easy to install, environmentally friendly and saves energy,” adds Panasonic Air Conditioner Product Manager, Darren Hayward.

The benefits of R32 include:

  • 0% ozone depletion
  • Reduces electricity costs as it consumes less energy
  • 30% less refrigerant
  • 75% less global warming impact
  • Low toxicity
