• Panasonic upgrades the WhisperRecessed™ ventilation fan to include a model with LED light
• Ventilation fan is virtually hidden in the ceiling, offering the look of an architectural grade recessed ceiling light
• Adjustable recessed LED lamp minimizes glare and integrated dual 4” or 6” duct adapter simplifies installation
• Can be used to comply with ASHRAE 62.2, LEED, CalGreen and CA Title 24
Panasonic Eco Solutions of North America introduces the WhisperRecessed LED™, providing builders, remodelers and architects with an even more efficient ventilation option, complete with an elegant design. The popular WhisperRecessed™ includes a 10W LED lamp.
The WhisperRecessed LED™ incorporates an ENERGY STAR® certified down light into a powerful 80 CFM fan that exhausts indoor pollutants, allergens, and moisture from the air using only 20.5W. The adjustable recessed LED bulb helps minimize glare, and LED bulbs in general use about 75% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs and last at least 35 times longer. Operating at exceptionally quiet noise levels as low as 0.7 sones at .25” w.g. static pressure, the WhisperRecessed LED™ is the industry’s quietest and most efficient ENERGY STAR® certified recessed fan/LED light.
“At Panasonic, we are constantly looking at ways to not only increase the power and efficiency of our ventilation fans, but are also conscious of the intricate aesthetics of home design,” said Patricia Monks, Product Manager, Panasonic Eco Solutions North America. “The WhisperRecessed LED™ provides architect and design professionals with a ventilation option that effectively exhausts pollutants that are retained in air-tight homes, but virtually disappears in the ceiling, contributing to cleaner air, cleaner design, and a cleaner environment.”
The architectural-grade, WhisperRecessed LED™ includes Panasonic’s dual duct adapter which gives the contractor the ability to install it in a 4” or 6” duct without having to purchase an additional adapter. Whisper Recessed LED™ is UL listed for tub/shower enclosure when used with a GFCI branch circuit. Additionally, UL labeled WhisperRecessed LED™ as IC-rated, a label that indicates to professionals that the lighting fixture can be installed with direct contact with insulation. Panasonic Eco Products Division stands behind WhisperRecessed LED™ with a three-year warranty.
