Panasonic AC offers five star service

UK: A luxury 19th century 5-star hotel and spa in the Sussex countryside is benefitting from the latest Panasonic air conditioning system fitted with nanoe X technology.

Panasonic R32 Paci units are now serving 20 bespoke bedrooms in the Sussex Wing of the South Lodge Hotel and Spa in Lower Beeding.

Set in 93 acres of parkland, the South Lodge property has 89 bedrooms in total, with plans to expand over the coming years. The location has no gas connection and no previous ductwork for cooling. With the UK now facing rising hot summer heat waves, and the bedrooms in this wing all being south facing, its 5-star rating and celebrity guests expect ultimate comfort when visiting. 

Peacehaven-based Grayer Services specified the Panasonic 5kW Paci split system. 19 rooms have the Panasonic adaptive ducted units and one on the upper roof area with a 60×60 compact cassette unit. All are connected to individual R32 Paci 5kW condensing units on the roof of the hotel. All the indoor units benefit from Panasonic’s nanoe X generators to help improve the comfort and indoor environment plus each room has an individual controller to operate the heating and cooling function.

“The main challenge of installing the units was working around a busy hotel and installing the new hidden ductwork inside the old 3ft thick walls of the hotel and into the ceilings – the team managed to install two rooms per week,” revealed South Lodge’s maintenance manager Bob Cannon. 

The adaptive ducted units are of a compact design with a height of just 250mm. They range in weight from 26kg to 42kg. Although small, the design still allows for a powerful 150Pa external static pressure, and optimal airflow set-up is possible depending on ducting design and conditions. In addition, the unit achieves a low noise level down to 20dBA.
