Questions & Answers

Can this be installed on a wall rather than a ceiling?

Can this be installed on a wall rather than a ceiling?
Asked by: Dave
The wall is between the bathroom and attic, so there is no space limit for the size of the housing, in remotely testing the unit, I believe the flow and pressure is sufficient to keep the damper open when running. Thanks for all the positive comments and suggestions.

Can this be installed from below and replace an existing fan.
Asked by: flug
Yes. It may be a little tricky connecting the electrical leads and the vent hose while supporting the new fan below the ceiling opening, but it can be done.

Remodeling 2 baths that are “back to back” sharing a wall. 1 bath had exhaust fan

In other words we want one in each bathroom but don’t want to make another hole out roof. Literally the existing one is right behind wall in bathroom 1 where we want to put one in bathroom 2 that did not have an existing exhaust fan. Is it possible to put one in each bathroom and then ducting go up in attic
Asked by: Deb
Yes- use a 4” T in the attic and put inline draft blockers on each end of the T so air is not blown into the other bathroom when one fan is on and the other is off. Using the same CFM fan is a good idea. So if both fans are on at the same time the higher CFM won’t close the draft blocker of the lower.

After reading many reviews, I’m considering this model for one bathroom and the 80cfm model for a second bath, both as an upgrade replacement from the smaller, builders grade ones most likely installed when the house was built. My question and concern is that if my existing duct is only 3” and these two new Panasonic models are requiring/rated for a 6” or 4” duct, to what extent would this 110cfm exhaust fan’s performance be compromised?? Both of my old fans are quite noisy and rated at 70cfm, and the bathroom that I’m planning to use this 110cfm is definitely in need of the upgrade and want to make sure the purchase and work will still be worth it if I can use the 3” existing duct.
Asked by: Greck44
From my experience, you have made the wisest choice on selecting this exhaust fan. It's the greatest one in the world! It is so quiet, sometimes I don't know that it's even running. I no longer have to clean my ceiling anymore because this fan leaves no moisture residue like the last one did. I had my electricians do this for me (two of them together) and even they had a bit of a difficult and tedious time assembling it. I had a 3" piping from my old junk fan and the boys recommended upgrading to a 4" for best all around performance and I'm so glad I did! Using an old 3" piping is like trying to quickly slurp your favorite beverage from a skinny straw...You need a real fat straw to really get a great, super gulp. Same thing with the size of your piping, which I do recommend upgrading to a larger size, trust me, you will have NO regrets.

WhisperCeiling 110 CFM Ceiling Exhaust Bath Fan, ENERGY STAR* is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 407.

I ordered this fan and arrived in less than a week to replace a noisy 50 CFM fan that was not removing shower steam in a 54 square foot bathroom. The unit has a perimeter flange, so the ceiling opening needed to be modified. The fan is quiet for the 110 CFM air capacity. For example, I do not have to increase the volume on the TV to hear it in the bathroom. The pull is so strong there is air movement from a floor register. When running, the bathroom mirror has almost no steam haze. For a completely steam hazed mirror, the mirror was cleared in a few minutes. I have this fan installed in two different bathrooms and both are working the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the fan to get ...you don't even know it's on and it is extremely quiet Finally on the tail end of our basement bathroom renovation and after researching we went with this Panasonic over Broan, Nutone, and all the other competitors. Prices again, all over the map however you will NOT overpay too much if you need the fan immediately from HomeDepot. Make sure you size your fan properly with a minimum of 8 changes of air per hour but again more is always better since you really want to void destructive moisture laden humidity from your bath area. What especially makes this Panasonic a good value is the fact it also has a built-in vent flapper and when installed with another exterior vent with it's own flapper it minimizes loss of hear during cold months. 3-year warranty from Panasonic and when charged to your CC will double the warranty giving you peace of mind on your purchase. Don't cheap out on this item since you really don't want to replace a bathroom exhaust fan especially you plan on having a finished ceiling (versus a dropped tile ceiling).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best! About a year ago, I had my master bathroom completely remodeled. The contractor who performed the work installed a Panasonic Whisper Ceiling fan as part of the job. I asked him why he chose the Panasonic fan and he told me that it was the best fan available. I was amazed how well the fan performed. It is very quiet and circulates more air than any other ceiling fan I have used. Needless to say, I was very impressed. I recently sold my old home and moved into something out in the country. As soon as we settled into our new place, I ordered up a new Panasonic fan for the master bathroom. The installation took less that an hour. This fan works great! No more bathroom fog when I take a hot shower. It runs so quiet that I sometimes neglect to turn it off. For me, this was money well spent. I am planning to upgrade all of the bathroom fans in the new house in the near future. Panasonic has a winner in this product.

Not only is it super quiet, but gets the moisture out of the air quickly. Had to order it, however, through Home Depot - it was not in the store. I found out about it through research and customer's reviews. If big box stores don't want to go out of business, I suggest they buy and keep the best in their stores for their customers convenience and then the "no-good" products can fall by the wayside.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Whisperceiling review I almost never leave reviews for products that I buy, but I’m going to this time because I like this unit. This exhaust fan is way better than any other fan that I’ve ever seen or heard. True, it’s a whole lot more expensive than its’ competitors, but for me it’s worth it. It really is as quiet as they claim – by far the quietest exhaust fan I’ve ever heard, no contest. And it really does flow as much air as advertised judging by the amount of air flow coming out of the unit. Combine the quietness with visibly superior engineering, and visibly superior materials and workmanship – the decision is a no-brainer if you disregard price. Besides price, the only drawback that I can mention is that the one-way flapper valve is too small and won’t stop all of the backdraft when the unit isn’t running. This really isn’t a problem if you have a one-way flapper valve on the outside exit vent like many houses now days do. For me, overall, the pros outweigh the price and undersize flapper. Important note – if you’re looking to keep the fan as quiet as possible, make sure you don’t purchase a unit that is too big. Match the unit with the size of vent tube/exit size you’re using. Too small a tube or a vent opening that is too small will cause back pressure. Back pressure causes this style of fan (low rpm centrifugal) to become louder as the back pressure increases. Make sure there are no sharp bends in the duct as that will increase back pressure too. And make sure there is adequate air supply entering the room such as underneath the door. I would have given an overall rating of 5, but because of cost and the flapper I rated it a 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quieter than expected! Purchased to replace standard 8x8 bathroom exhaust fan. Definitely will be doing the other bath very soon. Had to enlarge existing hole by 2.25" on 2 sides. Separated the metal exhaust / electrical housing unit from black box. Placed metal piece in new hole first, then slid in the box. YOU DEFINITELY NEED AN EXTRA SET OF HANDS (one in the attic, one to hold fan in place)....IT WILL HELP!!! Once back in the attic, I clipped both pieces back together and re-installed ground screw from the bathroom side. (THERE WAS A LOT OF UP AND DOWN THE LADDER TODAY...LOL). Secured brackets & extensions to studs / 2x4's. Wired up the electrical box, installed (dryer) exhaust tubing, double checked everything then flipped the breaker then the switch. PERFECT....Much quieter than your standard exhaust fan. Bathroom is 8'x5' (40 sq ft) and it's recommended for rooms up to 110 sq ft (roughly 10.5 x 10.5). The bathroom never got steamy even with a very hot shower. Although the bathroom door was closed & steam was still on the mirror after the shower, it gone within 2-4 minutes. A MUST PURCHASE TO REPLACE STANDARD EXHAUST BOX FANS.

I installed it and used the suspension brackets so it was not attached directly to the joist, mostly to reduce noise level, but this fan is so quiet I probably didn't need to do that. If you install it using the suspension brackets not attaching directly to a joist, you might encounter difficulty gaining access to some of the screws that attach the brackets to the joist.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A silent fan... In September 2016 I renovated my upstairs bath. I selected a new fan (not Panasonic) and was so disappointed with the sound level. After spending thousands on a full renovation the new bathroom fan was the single negative that really detracted from the project. The electrician that worked on my parents full home renovation had installed a Panasonic bath fan. I initially did not think the fan was working when I took a shower my first morning at their new home. I commented to my dad at breakfast. He replied, " Yes we forget to turn it off all day... it's so quiet." When I started my master bath renovation this winter, I called my dad for a model number. While it was a bit of a spend relative to the big box home improvement brands, the money was well worth it. The quality of engineering is evident when you open the box. It is soooooo incredibly quiet and the model I purchased is UL approved for use in my walk in rain shower. I could not be happier with the purchase. I love taking time to write a review for truly great products and service. Sincerely, Paul
