Customer Questions & Answers

What is the dual adaptor for 4" or 6" ducts?

Is the adaptor a collar or fitting of some type and how is it attached to the unit. The pictures would indicate that a 6" duct fitting is standard. How does the 4" duct adaptor option get connected?
Asked by: BGSmith
The 6" adapter mentioned in the listing is what is shown in the picture it is mounted to the box and takes it from a square output of the blower to a 6" round duct. As other have mentioned it is not recomended to choke this blower off with a 4" duct. Look at the 110CFM blower which uses a 4" duct it spins at a much higher RPM to overcome the static load. This blower will be quiet on a 4" duct but that is because you won't be moving much air. If you want to use a 4" duct save some money and buy the 110CFM fan that is designed to work with a 4" duct.

This fan is an absolute beast and "WhisperCeiling" is not just a clever name. It's almost completely silent when it is running even as it is moving huge amounts of air. It is in a large bathroom with 12 ft ceilings and it keeps up with even the steamiest shower. I have not yet seen a speck of fog on the mirror since I had this installed.

Very quiet, especially considering how much air it moves. My wife asked me if it was working. :-) I'd highly recommend this fan for a medium sized bathroom. Bathroom fans in most homes are undersized especially when you figure in CFM loss caused by duct friction which might be between 5 and 15% depending on your duct configuration. The old standard noisy 50 CFM fan just doesn't move enough air except for maybe for the smallest powder room. I wanted this sized fan to effectively remove the humidity caused by showering in our master bath although I did not install it directly over the shower. Install went as expected. It comes with a maybe 5 page installation booklet but for me it more of a glance at the pictures kind of thing since I have some experience with this kind of stuff. It comes with some mounting bars so you end up with a 3 point mounting plus the 4 sided (square?) rim flange that goes against the ceiling. This was a remodel situation so most of the install was done from the attic above other than cutting the hole in the ceiling. I really don't think it would be possible to install it from below in a house that already has drywall in it. It gets a little pricey as the 6" duct and 6" sidecap (vent on side of the house) add to the installation expense. OTOH, the 6" ducting is what makes it work so great. I used R-6 flex duct. I caulked the rim flange to the ceiling to prevent un-needed leakage of conditioned (heated and cooled) air. It has a plastic gravity damper that seals well just inside the 6" outlet to limit air leakage when the fan is not in use. I feel that this coupled with the sidecap flap is pretty effective. I'm not sure what gives it the Energy Star rating but I will say that the fan box is unlike cheap fans that have a bunch of holes in them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fan, very quiet! This is an amazingly quiet fan. As long as your ducting doesn't restrict the air flow too much it is barely audible. It now moves enough airflow that my bathroom mirror doesn't fog any more. This was my second fan I've purchased of this model. The first one I purchased has been running 24/7 for 6+ years now with no problems, and still super quiet. I think it's meant to be installed from above, but I was easily able to install from below by cutting the hole about 2-3 inches wider on one end. This allows you to angle the fan and slip it up into place, and the included vent cover will hide the slightly oversized hole.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 10 second delay Panasonic does not tell anyone there is a 10 second delay before this fan starts. They don't tell you there is no bypass for this delay. When you have it installed or do it yourself, you think you must have wired it wrong. If you don't use the two additional features, i.e. night light and motion detector, cap the two red wires off separately and wire white to white and black to black. I had to have an electrician come out, and the only way he discovered the fan could work is to leave it on long enough for the delay to pass. NOT telling consumers about these steps in the instructions or online is unacceptable.

We didn't know you could shower without a foggy mirror even with a fan running before this fan. However, no adapter included and the fan is a 6inch set up. We had to make a run to the store to adapt to the venting we had already. Disappointing since the information said there was an adapter, I assumed it would then be included or why mention it!

This was a replacement fan for me and proved to be a very difficult installation. In order to fit it into the drywall ceiling cut out I had to remove the vent housing/electrical box as well as the support brace and reinstall form the attic above. Not easy. However, it is working fine and extraordinarily quiet and powerful.

Bathroom still gets foggy. Water vapor all over mirrors and walls. Performs worst than my old Nutone 110CFM model which was replaced thinking the Panasonic would be better. Seems like this newer series where they made it quieter doesn't seem up to par with the older series.

Unfortunately not strong enough for my bathroom, easy to install, and quiet. I have rain head shower, which creates a lot of moisture, and fan does not move enough air into 10x12 room, to keep ceiling and mirrors from fogging up. My installer, reduced 6" outflow to 4", perhaps this is reducing cfm of the unit.
