Panasonic Air Purifier F-PXL45ASD Review: I had recently reviewed the Panasonic F-PXH55M air purifier and I thought that was the best air purifier that Panasonic had produced, but, after I got my hands on the F-PXL45ASD model, I would rate it above the F-PXH55M model. Panasonic products are well known for innovative technology and as expected Panasonic have launched a series of air purifiers with Nanoe technology which is different from the traditional HEPA air purification process. Let us cut through all the features and technical specification and get to the point.
Design: Panasonic F-PXL45ASD is a rectangular shaped device measuring 15 inches tall and 20 inches wide weighing 5.9 kgs, one can move the device to different rooms with ease. The device looks modern and elegant with its premium construction. The air purifier does not take up much footprint or real estate, thanks to its futuristic design. The coolest design element that I liked in the device is the dual mount option, you can either leave the air purifier on the floor or hang it up on the wall. Panasonic provides a remote to operate the device, this makes sense as the air purifier can be wall mounted too. The control panel located on top of the device is neatly laid out and is very easy to read and use with just 5 buttons on it. It is sad that the air purifier does not have a digital display to read the air quality around you. The other good feature is that you can turn off the panel indicators and clean sign on the air purifier with your remote control.
Technology: Similar to most Panasonic air purifiers, Panasonic F-PXL45ASD air purifier primarily works on the Nanoe purification methodology. However, Panasonic has combined the two powerful air purifying technologies Nanoe + HEPA on the PXL45ASD. Nanoe is a micro particle ion wrapped in water that is derived from the latest technology, with Nanoe technology, the effect of sterilization inhibiting allergic substance, mold bacteria and deodorization can be achieved. Furthermore, it creates an atmosphere that is conducive for hydrated skin.
The other cool feature that I really like in Panasonic F-PXL45ASD is the EcoNavi mechanism, it is an intelligent technology that can monitor your daily activities and memorize the timeline of the pollution level, it then controls the device before pollution spreads throughout the house, Panasonic claims the EcoNavi technology saves over 40% energy. The sleep mode auto operation automatcially detects the indoor brightness by the light sensor and adjusts the brightness of control panel indicators and switches the air volume too.
The 3D air circulation is quite effective in catching the dust and other allergens in the room.
3D Circulation Airflow
Long Life Filters
Effective area: 452 sq.ft.
Sound level: 32.5 – 63.8dB
Filters out PM2.5 – >99% 1 H
Dimensions: 580 x 300 x 205
Fan speeds- Low, Medium & High
Performance: Panasonic F-PXL45ASD is impressive with its coverage area of 355 sq.ft. The air quality sensors are of professional grade and the best part is that you can manually change the sensitivity of the sensors from high, medium or low, the device by default is set with medium sensitivity. For effective operation of the device, switch on the device in turbo mode and I would suggest to close the windows & doors and leave the room for the device to clean up the air in less than an hour. You can also control the air flow mode to swing the air ducts or to have on a static spot.
ECONAVI is one of the best feature I like about this device, the air purifier is intelligent to monitor your daily activities and memorize the timeline of pollution levels in the room. The air purifier operates automatically before pollutants spread that reduces the need for stronger airflow to clean dispersed pollutants. Panasonic claims that the ECONAVI mode saves over 50% energy compared to the auto mode. The presence of a HEPA composite filter makes this air purifier on top of our recommendation list.
It is important to understand the operating conditions of the air purifier, recommended room temperature for efficient generation of Nanoe particles is between 5 to 35 degree centigrade and the relative humidity levels between 30 to 85%.
Maintenance: Panasonic F-PXL45ASD is delivered with ZERO maintenance for at least 3 years, with the composite filter lifetime of 3 to 5 years, you do not need to worry on the replacement costs. The composite air filter is recommended to be cleaned once in a fortnight.
Conclusion: Panasonic F-PXL45ASD is one of the best air purifiers out in the market with the presence of Nanoe technology along with HEPA filters. The device is ideal for living rooms, bedrooms and small offices. I would highly recommend the Panasonic F-PXL45ASD for its Nanoe and ECONAVI technology along with HEPA filters, impressive customizable controls, night mode and importantly very long filter life of 5 years. An inbuilt humidifying function would be a nice to have option. Panasonic F-PXL45ASD is priced at Rs 32,995.00 and is also available on Amazon.in at Rs 25,970.00
