WhisperFit™ 50 CFM Low Profile Ceiling Mounted Fan

Features

Low-Profile Housing for Smaller Ceiling Cavities

Do you have 2" x 6" joists in your ceiling? Are you having trouble finding a ventilating fan that will fit in this small cavity? Well, this model was made just for you. Designed to fit 2" x 6" joists or larger, this low-profile fan doesn't sacrifice performance for size. An optional 3" duct adaptor1 is also included for those areas where a smaller duct is necessary.

So Quiet You Might Not Know it's On

This WhisperFit™ fan features a totally enclosed condenser motor and a large, double suction blower wheel to quietly move air. A small wheel turning very fast will create more noise than a large wheel turning more slowly for a given airflow. Our fan uses a wide blower wheel that moves a large amount of air at reduced RPMs. The blower wheel is also designed to draw air in from both sides, which helps keep the noise down, as there is more area for the air to enter the wheel. In fact, it is quiet enough that you might not even know it's on.

Continuous, Trouble-free Operation for Many Years

This fan is designed to give you continuous, trouble-free operation for many years thanks in part to its high-quality components and permanently lubricated motors which wear at a slower pace. Also, since heat is always detrimental to motor life (the cooler the environment, the longer the motor will last), we designed the electrical configuration of this model's condenser motor to allow it to operate at lower temperatures, increasing the life of the motor and bearings. And, the fan housing is made of heavy-gauge zinc galvanized steel and painted to protect it from rust.>

User-Friendly Installation

Detachable adaptors, firmly secured duct ends, adjustable mounting brackets (up to 26"), fan/motor units that detach easily from the housing and uncomplicated wiring all lend themselves to user-friendly installation. This model also features a double-hanger bar system for ideal positioning.

Energy Star® Qualified for Energy Savings

Energy Star qualified products feature super-quiet operation and high CFM-to-Watt efficiency. The Energy Star program was created to help consumers identify products that can save them money and protect the environment by saving energy. As an Energy Star partner, all our fans are Energy Star qualified and labeled accordingly.

Tired of Cold Air Coming Through Your Ventilation Fan?

This Panasonic fan has a built-in damper to prevent backdraft, which helps to prevent outside air from coming through the fan. Also, thanks to our efficient, cool running motors and fluorescent bulbs, it does not create excessive heat-a common problem with recessed lighting fixtures and some competitors' fan/light combinations. Loose fill or batt insulation can be placed directly over the fan housing to prevent heat from escaping.

  • My fan doesn't seem to be as quiet as the one I saw in the show room. How can this be corrected, or is mine defective?
    There are several factors that can attribute to the noise created from the ventilation fan. The best way to test your fan is to run it without the duct attached. This would isolate the fan from any possible problems in the installation. There is also a back draft damper in the adapter assembly. Also, check to ensure this is not blocked and is free moving. Keep in mind that there is usually no ducting attached to the fan in the show room. Although the fan is designed to operate very quietly, higher static pressures will increase fan noise.
  • I am having a problem with my Panasonic bath fan. When I turn the power off at the switch, the GFCI outlet is tripped. What can I do to fix this?
    The problem you are experiencing is not likely caused by the ventilation unit. It is probably caused by the GFCI outlet itself. Try replacing the GFCI outlet either with another brand or with one that is designed for installation with a ventilation fan. Some GFCI outlets will not work with ventilation fans. We recommend contacting the manufacturer of the GFCI outlet for more information.
  • How do I select the right fan for a specific room size and duct length?
    Please go to the URL listed below, which will display specs for Panasonic fans to help you select the right system that suits your needs. ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/ventilationfan/catalog/2015-2016_vf151105cat_vf_R5_pbp_catalog.pdf
  • Can a Panasonic fan be used over a bathtub or shower?
    Yes, provided it is protected by a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI). Keep in mind, however, that any ventilation device located in a damp environment may have a reduced life due to high humidity and a potential for corrosion. Fans used in high-humidity areas should be operated for longer periods of time, to ensure the removal of moisture and to reduce the potential for condensation in the fan body or ducting.
