Now with heating capabilities down to -5°F, Panasonic Mini-Splits are a great option for much of the US.
Panasonic's Dual Zone Mini Split System offers you the advantage of a single system that is connectable for 2 indoor units. That is 2 individually temperature controlled rooms without duct work! Panasonic's innovative technology enables high energy saving performance with a SEER rating of 19 and an HSPF rating of 9.5 - for more efficient operation than ever before. Because each room operates independently, you can customize your BTUs for each space. For the CU-2E18SBU-5, Panasonic offers indoor units ranging from 5,500 BTUs for smaller rooms, up to 12,000 BTUs for larger rooms. Connectivity capacities of this unit is a minimum of 11,000 BTUs with a maximum of 21,830 BTUs. This system is Energy Star Qualified when installed with both non-ducted and ducted indoor units.
With the Panasonic System Two Multi-Zone, long piping length flexibility is also featured. The maximum total length is 164 feet with a maximum length of 82 feet for a single indoor unit. The maximum height difference is 49 feet. With the flexibility of long piping lengths, this system can be installed in virtually any building design.
Of course the system also includes Panasonic's inverter technology - providing optimum power control and extremely efficient operation by changing the power supply frequency. The result is speedy, flexible operation that uses less electricity. The inverter constantly adjusts compressor rotation speed to provide optimum performance at all times. Once the set temperature is achieved, the inverter air conditioner continues to operate with minimum power.
And talk about reliability, with its low ambient heating capability, you will never be cold - heating is possible even if the temperature outside falls as low as -5°F.
The CU-2E18SBU-5 Dual-Zone is rated for 16,700 BTU Cooling Capacity and must be connected to two indoor units. The combined BTU ratings of the units chosen can total up to a maximum connected BTU rating of 21,800 BTUs.

Mini Split Line Sets - Line sets are a requirement when installing a mini split system. They are the connection between the outdoor unit and the indoor units of your system. Every indoor unit needs to be connected directly to the outdoor unit with its own line set. Most Mini Split Line Sets come with flared connectors attached and are ready to install. Our line sets are offered with and without control wire and are available in various connection sizes and lengths to meet your installation needs. The line set shown in the photo does not include the control wire.
At least two indoor units MUST be connected to the CU-2E18SBU-5 compressor. Nominal Capacity range of connectable indoor units must be from 11,000 BTUs ~ 21,830 BTUs.
