Questions & Answers

Can this be installed with no access from above?

Can this be installed with no access from above?
Asked by: Confused
No. You need the wiring from “above” and will also need to run the exhaust line to an acceptable gable vent or eave vent.

How do I turn off the motion sensor? I only want the humidity sensor to turn on the fan.
Asked by: nathan2c
I do not believe you cannot turn off the motion sensor. Even though the emotion sensor has a "zero" time setting, the fan will still go on when motion is detected but, that zero time setting will only enable the fan to go on for less than one minute. I did not connect mine to a wall switch, so I set the motion to a very short cycle. I have read of some individuals indicating that you could tape over the sensor or leave in its shipping packing in place and just leave tucked up. I did not try that so i can't say, plus you should check for any safety/electrical issues if you follow that route. If you hook to a wall switch, problem solved. Also, if you have someone install and you wish to vent to the eve, make sure the installer points the exhaust to the eve. motion in the hall and air circulation will set off the sensor.

Switch or no switch?

Can this unit be installed also with a wall switch or is it only designed to be operated via the motion sensor?
Asked by: Mark
It can be installed either way. I used a switch because the circuit the old fan was on had a switch. I can see that it can easily be installed without a switch as well. Its a matter of trust on whether you trust the motion sensor and humidity sensor to work properly all the time.

How the sensor activate if the switch is off, or need a second switch

Asked by: Gus
For the model that has the humidity and motion sensor (no heater), there is only one set of power lines to hook up to this fan, so a second switch would do nothing. You can have one switch to turn on the fan OR you can just leave it on all the time and have the motion sensing and humidity sensing automatically turn itself on.

WhisperSense 110 CFM Ceiling Humidity and Motion Sensing Exhaust Bath Fan with Timer, ENERGY STAR* is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 27.

This fan has a lip all the way around it and that lip is meant to go between the joist and the sheet rock. It was nice that they give you a template to cut a hole in the sheet rock, but you can't insert the fan into that hole from below because the exhaust port goes a couple of inches wider than the lip. I used a hammer to pound the lip between the sheet rock and joist after installing from above, but it wouldn't go that far in. My old fan and sheet rock hole was right against the joist, so I couldn't just put the hole 3/4" to the size of the joist because it was already against the joist. Once I installed it, it runs quietly and is seems to do an adequate job. It is quiet. The sensor does NOT seem to emit any light that I could see when the lights were off.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not bad... Better off with the FV-05-11VKS1 same features but with a night light and variable speed for $50 less. Not as quiet as advertised, more like 3 sones than 0.3 sones. Going to return it.

Both were installed by a professional contractor. One fan never turned off. It suppose to turn off after 10 min ( programmed) after vacating bathroom or end of the shower and humidity getting less than 50%. Another fan was turning off for a week and now also not turning off. I called Panasonic. It goes on and on with recordings and there is no option for Fans to choose. I gave up and went on website to chat. No support, but gave me this number for ventilation product repair 866-292-7992. It is always busy. I am still thinking what options do I have beside returning them to Home Depot. I already threw the packaging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quiet, you will love this. I use this in the kitchen away from the stove to cut down on household odors and cigarette smoke. The sensor works flawlessly, and the timer is a nice touch also. How loud is this fan? These fans use modern technology to make a fan just about as quiet as I think it can be. When I was in the attic and connected the power to it I had to double check the electric as I could not hear it running from above. In the kitchen it is quieter by far than my range hood, and leaving it on for extended periods of time does not annoy anyone. Buy one and you will not regret it. Running the ductwork is 75% of the job, the fan was easy to install.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for those who don't touch switches Quiet, well made, easy to install. The motion sensor is a plus and can calibrated for time on. Would be even better with a light
