Quality air for life

Enriching lives around the world with quality air

a nanoe concept image showing how the technology works with air circulation

Three key elements of quality air design

  1. Control temperature and humidity
  2. Lower indoor contaminant levels by exhausting air and/or supplying fresh, filtered air
  3. Mitigate particulate matter, allergens and odors
Breathe Well Indoor Air Quality Solutions

We breathe around 20,000 times per day

In fact, we breathe in nearly 40 lbs of air1, which is 15 times more air by weight than the food we eat or the water we drink every day.2 So, for us to live well and breathe well, the quality of the air we breathe is just as important as the quality of the food and water we consume.

Complete air purification

nanoe™ X purifies your air when you are home or away – even when cooling is off. There is no maintenance required for a nanoe™ X device as nanoe™ X is generated from water in the air, allowing for 24-hour performance. It also has low energy consumption, with a fan mode that runs on only 25W per hour.3

Return to a fresh smelling home every time

Leave nanoe™ mode ON to deodorize, inhibit allergens and remove dust particles (PM2.5) while you're away.

The origin of the name nanoe™

One nanometer (nm) is one billionth of one meter. If the size of the earth were one meter, a nanometer would be about the size of a dime. The size of nanoe™ particles is 5-20nm. While small, these particles have a big effect. Panasonic’s unique nanoe™ technology involves special expertise at the nanometer level. It deodorizes, inhibits the growth of bacteria and viruses, and is effective in dust removal for a fresher, cleaner indoor environment.

The seven advantages of nanoe™ X

nanoe™ X are nano-sized electrostatic atomized water particles with 4.8 trillion OH radicals.

advantages

How nanoe™ X works for odor

nanoe™ X reliably reaches odors embedded in fibers.

OH radicals break down odor-causing substances.

Odor is eliminated.⁴⁻¹¹

How nanoe™ X works for bacteria and viruses

Bacteria 1

nanoe™ X reaches the virus.

Bacteria 2

Hydroxyl radicals denature virus proteins.

Bacteria 3

Mold growth is inhibited.

How nanoe™ X works for allergens

nanoe™ X reliably reaches allergens.

OH radicals denature allergen proteins​.

Allergen is inhibited.¹²

How nanoe™ X works for pollen

nanoe™ X reliably reaches pollen​.

OH radicals denature pollen proteins​.

Pollen is inhibited.¹³

How nanoe™ X works for hazardous substances

nanoe™ X reliably reaches hazardous substance.

OH radicals denature hazardous substance proteins.

Hazardous substance is inhibited.¹⁴

How nanoe™ X works for skin & hair

Without nanoe™ X = dry skin

1. Moisture escapes and skin dries out.
2. Skin texture deteriorates and corneum sloughs off.

With nanoe™ X = moisturized skin

1. nanoe™ X combines with natural sebum to coat the skin.
2. Leads to smooth, well hydrated skin.¹⁵ ¹⁶

Without nanoe™ X = frizzy hair

The hair's moisture balance falls, leading to frizzy hair. With difficulty reflecting light, gloss is reduced and texture is grainy.

With nanoe™ X = smooth hair

Helps the hair achieve a proper moisture balance, making for shiny hair that reflects light and allows fingers to be run through it smoothly.¹⁷

Eliminating common odors with nanoe™ X

picture of a room showing sources for common household odors

nanoe™ X particles, which are smaller than steam particles, penetrate the deepest parts of fibers, allowing for highly effective deodorization.4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11 OH radicals reach the sources of the odors themselves and suppress them until they are barely noticeable.
