Panasonic VRF takes care10th February 2024
UK: Panasonic air conditioning equipment is improving the comfort for residents at a Surrey home for people with personal care needs.
The Belvedere House Care Home, part of the Royal Alfred Seafarers’ Society in Banstead, recently completed a significant modernisation project, incorporating state-of-the-art climate control systems to ensure optimal resident comfort and improve the indoor air quality.
The home provides for a number of personal care needs, including for elderly people with frailties, for physical disabilities and for dementia sufferers.
Mechanical services and AC installation company Technicool Air Conditioning selected three Panasonic 2-pipe VRF units, 58 ducted units for bedrooms, and an additional twin system for the communal areas. The seamless operation of the entire system is managed through a centralised control panel, enhancing both efficiency and convenience.
Belvedere care home sought a solution that could inhibit the transmission of airborne pathogens. Panasonic’s Nanoe X generator included within the VRF 2-pipe system extracts invisible moisture from the air, generating hydroxyl radicals that effectively impede the growth of viruses, bacteria, and allergens. This technology operates independently in fan mode, ensuring continuous protection 24/7.
“The added benefit of Nanoe X was the main attraction of the Panasonic units for this essential modernisation of Belvedere House, particularly as the project started in 2021 during the covid-19 restrictions,” commented Nick Potroanchenu, estate manager at Royal Alfred Seafarers’ Society.
