A Cooler Room With Panasonic

Okay, I'm pretty sure most of you have an aircond somewhere in the house, probably a couple of air conds. As for me, getting an air conditioning unit for the first time is a really big step. Not life changing, but definately a more comfortable change.

Since young, I did not have the pleasure to enjoy an air conditioned room. Recently the hot weather had been really getting to me, so I decided to splurge on an air conditioner for my room. The model that I went for? It was a Panasonic 1.5HP CS-S13MKH unit.

This particular Panasonic model comes with an inverter which is said to be able to save the electricity costs by at least 40% compared to a standard air cond. I'll explain on the inverter portion in a while further down. A quick check from the manual and online specs educated me on some of the cool functions integrated in the aircond.

Inverter Deluxe
* ECONAVI
* Intelligent Inverter
* 5 Star Energy Rating Product
* AUTOCOMFORT
* ADVANCED+PLUS e-ion Air Purifying System with Patrol Sensor
* Mild Dry Cooling
* Btu/h 12,500 (3,140 -14,300)

More information on the inverter part. Inverter air conditioner units have been introduced not too long ago. The concept is fairly simple, a standard aircond without inverter runs on an "On-max speed" and "Off" stage to reach your set temperature. Meaning when its too cold, the aircond will switch "Off" and only "On" back when it drops below the threshold, controlled by a thermostat.

In an inverter air cond however, it continues running, but is able to regulate its speed, meaning when a threshold is reached, it runs at a slower speed, thus consuming less energy. It does not run at full energy levels all the time. This new technology translates to energy savings. Of course, my explanation may be too basic, for more info do check out wikipedia on this link below.

As for me, I'm just glad that I won't have to suffer hot weather during the afternoons any more. This addition to my room set me back RM1.8k (1.6 for the unit with compressor, and 0.2 for installation charges), pretty pricey because of the inverter and higher horsepower at 1.5HP. My next plan will be to install at least 1 of these babies at my parents' house. It will make their home so much more comfortable.

  9. Cool! tQ for explaining the inverter. My aircon is on everyday 24/7 non stop as it runs on natural resources fresh air...haha cannot afford to pay electrical bill lah..hahaha. Only use the fan not in favour of ac at home. Office got ac and in the car also choked up with ac, so I better skip ac at home and you might be surprised hardly use the fan while sleeping at night. Its cool and airy in the room plus sleeping in the nude lagi cool~;).
