WhisperCeiling FV-08VQ5 80 CFM, Ceiling Mount Fan

The workhorse of the Panasonic line, WhisperCeiling™ is time-tested and customer approved for its quiet, yet powerful consistency. Rated for continuous use, WhisperCeiling vent fans are a simple way to incorporate an energy efficient ventilation strategy, and are a great choice for new and remodel residential applications.

We Set the Standard for Quiet Operation

WhisperCeiling fans feature a totally enclosed condenser AC motor and a double-tapered blower wheel to quietly move air-even at twice the static pressure as the industry standard. WhisperCeiling exceeds the performance measurement for ASHRAE 62.2, ENERGY STAR® 3.0, and LEED for Homes.

Long Life Means Reduced Costs

When you have a household or business to run, you don't want to have to replace little things like a vent fan. Panasonic fans use less energy to move larger volumes of air than other brands. Consequently, Panasonic fans run cooler so they last longer. They are also much less likely to overheat and result in motor failure. The motor is also equipped with a thermal-cutoff fuse.

Installation Flexibility

WhisperCeiling incorporates an integrated dual 4 in. or 6 in. duct adapter to give you flexibility in duct layout and design. For short runs, you can go with a smaller duct size, but long runs are OK, too - just move up to 6 in. duct. The double hanger-bar system (expandable up to 24 in.) is ideal for positioning the fan exactly where you want it. Panasonic fans are UL listed for tub/shower enclosure (just install them on a GFCI-protected circuit). With these great features, your installation options open up.

ENERGY STAR® Certified for Energy Savings

Panasonic ventilation fans are ENERGY STAR® certified, where guidelines exist. ENERGY STAR® vent fans meet strict parameters set by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). They provide better efficiency and comfort with less noise, and feature high performance motors and improved blade design, providing better performance and longer life.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 Best basic fan available When you compare this basic fan with others found at the local chain stores you'd be a fool not to buy the Panasonic. I can't tell you how many of the "other" brand names I have bought in the past that ran loud or vibrated that have been replaced. The Panasonic is robustly built and is quiet and without vibration. It costs a little more money up front but when you consider the hassle of changing out other cheaply made bathroom fans its well worth the price. Panasonic also has other retrofit type fans (much more money) that can be installed in sections to allow for tight blind installations. I've never seen that type of engineering for a bathroom fan but it goes to show you that this is a well thought out commitment to design. Well done. November 30, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Model FV-08VQ3 Interesting to read these reviews. I have this fan, model FV-08VQ3, in two bathrooms and it is not the quiet purr that I've been reading. It isn't loud either, but I can definitely hear it when it is running. I've had both fans for less than five years and one already needs to be replaced as it has stopped working. The electrician that installed the fans boasted that they are "top of the line", but I didn't think "top of the line" would have to be replaced in less than five years. March 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Have installed several of these...they're great I am an electrician, and first installed the Panasonic when I helped a friend build his house in 2006. Installed 3 in his house, was very impressed-his are still just as quiet today. Have installed 8 more for family and friends (and myself) since then, and am so impressed each time at the quality of construction/materials. If you are doubtful, take another brand out of the box at a retailer and look at it/feel it. There's no comparison. Just change out the ducting to 4" and use a 2x4 instead of the brackets.

Rated 4 out of 5 INSTALLATION NOT FOR EXISTING CONSTRUCTION GREAT FAN, VERY QUITE. THIS FAN IS NOT VERY USER FRIENDLY INSTALLATION FOR EXISTING CONSTRUCTION. TO USE THE JOIST MOUNTING BRACKETS WOULD HAVE NECESSATED CUTTING A MUCH LARGER HOLE IN CEILING. HAD TO LEAVE THE JOIST HANGER OFF MY UNIT COMPLETELY. I INSTALLED ADDITIONAL SUPPORT IN ATTIC TO MOUNT FAN. October 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Is it on? So quiet I asked the installer if it was working. Amazing difference from the old fan that sounded as if an airplane was taking off. It also appears to have solved the draft problem. December 15, 2010
