Panasonic 5-Zone Mini Split now has heating capabilities down to -5°F, making it a great option for much of the US.
Panasonic's 5 Zone Mini Split System offers you the advantage of a single system that is connectable for up to 5 indoor units. That is from 2 up to 5 individual temperature controlled rooms without duct work! Panasonic's innovative technology enables high energy saving performance with SEER ratings of 18.5 when all non-ducted units are connected and 16.5 with ducted units. It also features HSPF ratings of 10.0 and 9.5 (non-ducted and ducted units, respectively) - for more efficient operation than ever before. Because each room operates independently, you can customize your BTUs for each space. Panasonic offers Indoor units ranging from 5500 BTUs for smaller rooms, up to 24,000 BTUs for larger rooms.
With the Panasonic System 5 Multi-Zone, long piping length flexibility is also featured. The maximum total length is 262 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 this 3 ton mini split air conditioner system also includes Panasonic's inverter technology - providing superb comfort, precise control and extremely efficient operation by constantly adjusting the power supply frequency. The result is speedy, flexible operation that uses less electricity. The inverter constantly adjusts the 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. Switching from the cooling mode to the heating mode is done easily with the simple push of a button on the remote!
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-5E36QBU-5 Five-Zone is rated for 36,000 BTU Cooling Capacity and 37,800 BTUs heating capacity from the heat pump. This system must be connected to at least two / maximum five indoor units with a minimum of 15,300 BTUs connected. The combined BTU ratings of the units chosen can total up to a maximum connected BTU rating of 59,500 BTUs. The illustration shows 5 standard wall units. Any combination of wall and ceiling units is allowable up to the maximum connectivity.

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.
