WhisperCeiling 80 CFM ceiling mount fan is a time-tested and customer approved quiet, yet powerful and energy efficient solution. Ideal for new and remodeling applications, it incorporates an integrated dual 4 in. or 6 in. duct adapter to give you flexibility in duct layout and design. Can be used to comply with the latest codes and standards.
A Helpful Note on Fan Noise: Ventilation Fans are rated in "sones". The lower the sone rating, the quieter the fan. One sone is equal to the sound of a quiet refrigerator. A quiet ventilation fan is rated at 1.5 sones or less.
WhisperCeiling FV-08VQ5 80 CFM, Ceiling Mount Fan
The workhorse of the Panasonic line, WhisperCeiling is time-tested and customer approved for its quiet, yet powerful consistency. Rated for continuous use, WhisperCeiling vent fans are a simple way to incorporate an energy efficient ventilation strategy, and are a great choice for new and remodel residential applications.
We Set the Standard for Quiet Operation
WhisperCeiling fans feature a totally enclosed condenser AC motor and a double-tapered blower wheel to quietly move air-even at twice the static pressure as the industry standard. WhisperCeiling exceeds the performance measurement for ASHRAE 62.2, ENERGY STAR 3.0, and LEED for Homes.
Long Life Means Reduced Costs
When you have a household or business to run, you don't want to have to replace little things like a vent fan. Panasonic fans use less energy to move larger volumes of air than other brands. Consequently, Panasonic fans run cooler so they last longer. They are also much less likely to overheat and result in motor failure. The motor is also equipped with a thermal-cutoff fuse.
WhisperCeiling incorporates an integrated dual 4 in. or 6 in. duct adapter to give you flexibility in duct layout and design. For short runs, you can go with a smaller duct size, but long runs are OK, too - just move up to 6 in. duct. The double hanger-bar system (expandable up to 24 in.) is ideal for positioning the fan exactly where you want it. Panasonic fans are UL listed for tub/shower enclosure (just install them on a GFCI-protected circuit). With these great features, your installation options open up.
ENERGY STAR Certified for Energy Savings
Panasonic ventilation fans are ENERGY STAR certified, where guidelines exist. ENERGY STAR® vent fans meet strict parameters set by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). They provide better efficiency and comfort with less noise, and feature high performance motors and improved blade design, providing better performance and longer life.
All the standard Panasonic fans are housed in the same size enclosure. That allowed me to make a template to mark the cut out size. I installed four Panasonic fans with three different models. Panasonic has no idea about fitting the fans into a house from inside--they require mounting from above. I made a system to allow hooking them up in limited space through the approximately 10.5" square hole. Once installed, the fans are very quiet. On two fans I had to install pilot light switches, because it is easier to see when the fans are on (although current drawn is minimal).In addition to retrofit hardware, Panasonic ought to offer an exhaust housing with a right-angle output vent for tight quarters. I had a problem with one fan because of adjacent beams. (I have to repair ceiling because the middle, symmetrical, position could not be made to work with a 4" metal duct attached.)
