WhisperLite™ 80 CFM Ceiling Mounted Fan/Light Combination

Features

Add Some Overhead Light to Your Room
This unit not only ventilates the air in your room, but provides overhead lighting as well. Two 18-watt compact fluorescent lamps1 will provide plenty of overhead lighting while the convenient, 4-watt nightlight will help you find your way through the room in the dark.

So Quiet You Might Not Know it's On
WhisperLite™ fans feature a totally enclosed condenser motor and a double-tapered, dolphin shaped bladed 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, so 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.

Reviews

FV-08VQL4 is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor quality I installed this unit on the recommendation of a reputable supply store. The light still works after a few years, but the fan is shot. Not happy I need to replace this so soon. I was expecting it to last for many years, given the price premium over other similar products.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the money Not as quiet as advertised. Flimsy light sockets and bulbs. Bulb life too short. Useless backdraft damper allows all sorts of insects in the house. We have repeatedly found that expensive brands do not perform, and are poor values. I had four of these fans installed in my house during construction, five years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone is impressed-very quiet The electrician who did the installation for us is going to replace the one in his home with this Panasonic. He does a lot of work for homebuilders and says he has seen nothing that compares to this fan. Our bath is 10.5' x5' so the 80CFM is perfectly adequate. We have no moisture problems and no need for bathroom sprays. The florescent lamp puts out a bright white light. I recommend purchasing an electronic timer, that can be set, to turn the unit off in user specified lengths of time. We purchased one at a local home improvement store that has 10,20,40 and 60 minute increments. I shopped online until I found the best price. There is a large range of prices out there so be patient and take shipping costs into account. Be sure the installer follows the directions and uses a rigid duct to vent the fan as a flexible one will slow down air flow and may increase noise. We actually vented ours into the attic, running the duct towards the gables, which vent the attic, rather than cutting a hole in the house for it to vent directly outside. The instructions are very detailed for many different types of installations. This fan is highly recommended.
