Panasonic Heating & Cooling Solutions has announced its highly efficient Aquarea All-in-One Compact and Bi-Bloc heat pumps, as well as its Heat Recovery Ventilation Unit, have all been certified as a Passive House Component by the respected Passive House Institute (PHI).

PHI is an independent research institute that has played a crucial role in the development of the Passive House concept, which is considered a building that is ‘truly energy efficient, comfortable, and affordable at the same time’. It is the only internationally recognised, performance-based energy standard in construction. Passive House (German: Passivhaus) is a voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, which reduces the building's ecological footprint. It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling.

“It’s an honour to have units from our advanced Aquarea range receive such an important certification,” said Jose Alves, UK Country Manager for Panasonic Heating & Cooling Solutions, “We strive to create energy efficient solutions to benefit all, whilst also providing a high level of comfort. This Passive House Component certification is one part in our aim to help create Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (nZEB).”

The air-to-water heat pump and ventilation units from Panasonic have been certified thanks to its high-performance capabilities, exceptional comfort, and low energy costs. The innovative Aquarea technology converts heat energy in the air into household warmth, reducing CO2 emissions and environmental impact compared to conventional boilers and electric heaters. Panasonic is one of the very few manufacturers to produce 3 kW heat pump models, which is what most Passive House buildings use as it allows for energy savings and high efficiency.

Panasonic has long since been pioneers for creating energy efficient heating and cooling units, and one of its key motivators when developing latest innovations is its Environmental Vision 2050, to ensure a positive contribution to society by reducing the amount of energy used and utilising clean energy.
