WhisperGreen® 110 CFM Ventilation Fans

The Panasonic Home & Environment Company is expanding its third generation of WhisperGreen premium ventilation fans to include two new 110 CFM WhisperGreen fans: the FV-11VK3 and FV-11VKL3 models which will be available beginning April 2012.

Several proprietary WhisperGreen features apply to the 110 CFM models, including SmartFlow™ Optimum CFM Technology that detects and compensates for additional static pressure by increasing the airflow to achieve the specified CFM output, and Panasonic’s super energy efficient DC motor, allowing fans to be up to 592% more energy efficient than ENERGY STAR standards. The new models also include a dual adaptor for 4” or 6” ducts, making them a great option for renovation projects as well as new construction.

All WhisperGreen models are ENERGY STAR® rated, HVI certified and comply with ASHRAE Standard 62.2, the ventilation platform adopted by LEED for Homes, ENERGY STAR Indoor Air Quality Program, CalGreen and California Title 24.

WhisperSense™ Fans with Motion and Humidity Sensors

Panasonic’s Energy Star-rated WhisperSense FV-08VQC5, FV-11VQC5, FV-08VQCL5, and FV 11VQCL5 ventilation fans meet green building control requirements, are easy to install, and are the only vent fans on the market to incorporate a dual motion and humidity sensor for ultimate indoor air quality.

The WhisperSense fans only operates when necessary. Panasonic’s SmartAction™ motion sensor with delay-off timer activates the WhisperSense when a person enters the bathroom and automatically shuts the fan off 20 minutes after the occupant has left. If the occupant has taken a shower or bath, the built-in humidity sensor would override the delay timer and continue to exhaust moisture until the humidity is back down to the pre-set level. Since humidity levels vary depending on climate, the humidity sensor has adjustable settings so the contractor or builder can adjust set points between 30% - 90% relative humidity (RH).

With incredibly quiet noise levels as low as 0.3 sones, the ceiling-mounted models were designed specifically to meet the requirements of ASHRAE 62.2, LEED for Homes and the new CalGreen standard. Also available, WhisperSense-Lite™ models FV-08VQCL5 and FV-11VQCL5 feature a contemporary flush mount grille that incorporate a 32-Watt Energy-Star-rated CFL light fixture and a 4-Watt night light.
