UK: Heronhill Air Conditioning has extended its representation of Panasonic to include the Japanese manufacturer’s complete range of residential and commercial air conditioning systems.

A specialist distributor of air conditioning units, components and spares, Somerset-based Heronhill has been working closely with Panasonic for the last 18 months, specialising in low temperature and niche projects. Now, following a period of intensive training, Heronhill’s sales and technical team are actively promoting Panasonic’s complete range of residential and commercial air conditioning systems. 

Nigel Manning: “impressed”

Expecting to build on the success of its Panasonic low temperature sales, Heronhill’s MD Nigel Manning commented: “We have been very impressed with the quality of the product, the flexibility of its controls and adaptability to suit a diverse range of applications. Panasonic complements Heronhill’s existing range of low temperature air conditioning systems, Marstair, Friax and Wine Guardian, but with the added benefit of inverter and VRF technology and sophisticated controls.”

Heronhill has already supplied many Panasonic low temperature systems for wine cellars, funeral directors, farm shops and food preparation areas. They were also the first distributor to use Panasonic’s VRF system for a low temperature application which was used in a high end grocer’s retail outlet in Chelsea, where the day temperature of 14ºC drops to 8ºC at night using the control’s time clock and dual set-point facility.

Another first for Panasonic was using one of their Elite indoor units to operate in a butchers preparation area, maintaining 10ºC which is connected to a refrigeration pack system serving refrigerated display cases and walk in freezers using R449A refrigerant.
