    Q:Do Panasonic make a bathroom exhaust fan with adjustable air volume and a motion sensor and an adjustable off delay but no humidity sensor? Just not feeling that I need the dehumidifying option.
    by|Jul 28, 2022

    Answer This Question

    A:  I really like the dehumidifying option on my fan because I live in an older home where mold is a concern. This fan allows you the option to have the sensor come on by itself or not at all. I paid an electrician $75 to connect my fan to its own power source so I can turn it off and on manually, the fan is not loud enough to be disturbing but for safety reasons I like to turn it off when no one is home.

            A:  I have it set up to run only by humidity. We always leave the switch on. I taped the motion sensor facing a different direction inside the cover so it doesn’t “look down.”

              A:  Yes this unit can be setup to run the humidity sensor only and not with motion - that is how I have it but i did have a licensed electrician install my unit and I told him I preferred not to use the sensor. He charged me $75 which was well worth it to not have to go into the attic myself.

                We bought one for our other bathroom about a year ago on our electrician's recommendation, and it's made such a difference in keeping the humidity levels down. We loved the unit so much, we just bought another one a few weeks ago for our second bathroom. Cost a bit more than other ceiling fans, but worth every penny of it! PROS ===== 1. The unit can be wired to always be "hot" (always powered on) so no wall switch needed because it will only turn on when it senses motion and/or senses a certain level of humidity (user settable). 2. The unit its extremely quiet. We have it in the bathroom right next to our bedroom and when it occasionally turns on (either from motion or humidity level), it does not scare/wake us at all. CONS ===== None so far We highly recommend this ceiling fan! Please note that there are also some similar Panasonic models that don't have the humidity sensor feature, so just make sure you get the Panasonic model FV-0511VQC1 if you want this feature. There is also a model with a light in it, but we didn't need the light. The light adds about $100 to the cost of the unit, and I'm not sure if that model has the humidity sensor in it.

                Works great
                This fan works really well. The flow rate is great. Humidity control and motion sensor works really well. Installation was relatively easy since the mounting bracket is well thought out. AND it is quiet even on high. I'm really pleased.

                always runs all night
                Pro installed. Set to lowest speed, 80% humidity. Stays on most of night no matter the weather. I already sent e-mails to Panasonic. Never got a reply. Not sure what else to do. I would NEVER get one again with a moisture sensor. It is quiet and it does pretty well keeping everything dry but the running most all night is not good.

                  This is an excellent fan. It's well built and worth every penny. Performs exactly as advertised. I have a 7X10 bathroom that has humidity problems. With the humidity sensor and timer, I have not experienced any humidity issues since it was installed.

                  Great fan, easy install.
                  Not as quiet as I expected but still not too loud. The controls are easy to adjust and give plenty of options. Some people have dumb little things that they complain about on this fan, like, “it takes 1-3 seconds to turn on”, “It drips water”, “instructions are not good”, “motion sensor is too sensitive” etc., all a bunch of whiners, this is a great fan that does all it is supposed to and does it well. I am buying 2 more for other bathrooms.

                  AC/HEAT register beware
                  If you have AC or heat register in your bathroom you will need to redirect the flow or close it for the shut off sensor to work properly. The direct air throws the sensor off. Also, play around woth yhe humidy level until you hit the sweet spot
