Panasonic Whisper Ceiling 190 CFM bathroom fan

Bathroom fan for high-end ceiling mounting

WhisperCeiling series bathroom fans are ultra quiet, to the point where you may not even know they are working, even in homes where the ductwork is long and complex . They are equipped with a double suction motor and a sealed capacitor motor for maximum service life, and energy efficient silent operation. The large diameter motor moves a large amount of air at a reduced speed which allows it to draw in air from both sides. This helps keep the noise level low since there is more air entering the rotor.

Installation flexibility

The WhisperCeiling fan has a built-in 4 ” to 6 ” duct adapter providing more design versatility for your duct system. For short paths, you can use a narrower conduit, and for long paths, just use a 6 ” conduit. The two-bracket mounting system (extendable up to 24 “) is ideal for positioning the fan exactly where you want it. Panasonic fans are UL listed for tub / shower (simply install them on an electrical circuit protected by an earth leakage breaker). With all these exceptional features, you benefit from more installation possibilities.

Quiet bathroom fan

Any manufacturer is able to build bathroom fans and reach low sonic levels within 0.1 inches of water column – the level of static pressure with a 10 ‘long flue and crown from the wall. Today’s homes have longer and more complex ductwork. Because 0.1 “of water column is not a realistic static pressure for these installations, the ASHRAE, ENERGY STAR® and LEED standards for residences have been set at 0.25” of water column. Panasonic sits at the forefront with incomparable noise levels at both 0.1 “and 0.25” water column.

Long service life means lower costs

When you have a home or business to run, you don’t want to waste time replacing minor things like an exhaust fan. Panasonic fans use less energy to move more air than other brands’ fans. As a result, Panasonic fans produce less heat and last longer. They are also less likely to overheat, thereby protecting the engine from failure. In addition, the engine is equipped with a thermal cut-out.
