Newark, New Jersey (July 28, 2014) Panasonic Eco Products Division introduces the WhisperRecessed LED™, a fan and LED lamp combination that provides builders, remodelers and architects with an even more efficient ventilation option with an elegant design. The popular WhisperRecessed™ is now offered with a replaceable GU14W base 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 lamp helps minimize glare, and LED lamps 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 available.


“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 architects 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 integrated 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 protected circuit. Additionally, UL labeled WhisperRecessed LED™ is 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.
