Questions & Answers

Is this fan for remodel or new construction?

I am remodeling 2 bathrooms and my wife ordered 2 of these fans, I looked at the installation manual and it looks like it is for new construction only and I want to confirm or see if there is another part number for remodel appllications.
Asked by: Rocco1
This fan works best in new construction. The mounting brackets to attach to a Joist are not easy to install from above. The WhisperGreen Select fan has a mounting bracket that can be installed easily from the room below. In fact, that fan can be installed in old work (remodel / replacement) applications entirely from below, if there is flex duct on the old fan and the old wiring is appropriate to the new fan. Watch Panasonic's online videos of the installation of both fans. Then, buy the WhisperGreen Select.

is fan multi speed can it run cotinious

Asked by: weather
If you don't have an air exchanger this fan is a good fan to use to exhaust stale house air out. Yes, you can hardwire this for continues run.

what is CFM

one fan has 80 CFM and another has 110
Asked by: PATSY
CFM = Cubic Feet per Minute. It is a measure of how much air it will vent per minute. Panasonic makes several different fans in this line. Pick the one that best meets the size of the room you are venting. Here is one sizing guide. Bathroom vent fans are rated by the cubic feet per minute (CFM) of air they move and should be sized to replace the air in the room at least eight times an hour. If your bathroom has an 8’ ceiling, the CFM rating for your fan should be at least as high as the number of square feet (5’ x 7’ = 35 sq. ft.) in the room. Personally, I would go a fair bit above the square footage to insure good air flow.

WhisperCeiling 80 CFM Ceiling Exhaust Bath Fan, ENERGY STAR* is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 128.

Installation was simple. The hard part was relocating the new fan and having to work in cramped hot quarters in the attic. The only problem I ran into was that the sheet metal screws included were to large for the holes in the support brackets so I had to re-drill the holes. The fan is quiet, not silent, but way WAY quieter than the old thrashing machine that used to be our bath fan. The cover attached easily, it wasn't a problem to wire up, I got lucky and was able to attach the vent hose to an old, unused roof vent. On the whole this fan I think to be a good value.

Installation is reasonably straight forward and easy. This 80CFM model is great for smaller bathrooms but if you have moderate to large bathroom I would go with the 110CFM model.

One was was 6" duct and another is with a 4". The duct length is the same. The difference in the noise level is very audible. The 6" duct is much quieter. In the colder climates this design will be sensitive to the stuck effect so FV-05-11VK1 would be more desirable because it regulates the RPM to achieve the desired level of airflow. FV_08VQ5 will be noisier because it moves more than 80CFM in the winter. The fan is very well built. The installation was easy since I have access to the attic. I replaced an older 2.5 sones Broad fan and the noise improvement was not as significant as I expected because I used a 4" duct for the first fan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rehabbers beware This is a fine fan, quiet, well built, effective. However, the installation instructions, printed on a super small format, say virtually nothing about retrofitting an old bathroom. There is so much to say! Installing any fan in new construction is a piece of cake. Updating an old bathroom can be very tricky, especially with clearances and proper angling of the duct pipe. This is not a criticism of the fan itself, rather of the suits who presumably oversee production of the pathetic installation pages. I got lucky at several points in the installation, of course consulting online videos and other forums, but still, a few words about where to put the fan opening relative to the duct exit would have been merciful. I'll give it four stars assuming most of the buyers have plenty of room to work and do not need to worry about clearances very much

The new fan construction has more plastic comparing to the old one. It is probably due to cost down. The replacement process is easy and I hope the new fan can last as long as the previous one.

Had this bathroom fan installed in my guest bathroom and it worked perfectly. It looks good in the ceiling and removes all odors in the bathroom. I have 2 other Panasonic Whisper fans in my 2 full bathrooms and they are very quiet but extremely efficient in removing steam, moisture and bathroom smells. I was so happy with these, that I purchased the smaller one when my bathroom fan started making loud noises. Biggest problem is to forget to turn them off because they are so quiet. You might consider hooking them to the light switch so that you turn both the lights and fan off/on at the same time. I recommend this product and am very happy with it.
