WhisperCeiling™ 110 CFM Ceiling Mounted Fan

Features

So Quiet You Might Not Know it's On
WhisperCeiling™ 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 adapters, 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.

FV-11VQ3 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5183.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best on the market! As an Interior Designer, specializing in Kitchens and Baths, this unit comes highly recommended! It is ultra quiet, and worth the money! the design also works great, since the bath fan is not a design element--just need it to do it's job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, quiet fan This model is made for a fairly large sized bathroom. We put it in a small bathroom calling for only 60 CFM. Even so, it was extremely QUIET. It also did a great job of eliminating steam and odor. It was easy to install, if you have have those talents. I would never go back to the noisy models at home depot. I've compared them and HD's quiet models are not even close! Panasonic fans are more expensive, but I'm looking for a product that works, not the cheapest fan. We're buying more of these for our other bathrooms after 3 years of testing out the first one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as quiet as advertised This fan is just as noisy as the one I replaced!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from More steam, why? Massive steam on my mirrors w/a 5 min shower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am delighted with this fan This is a replacment of a noisy non-effective bathroom fan. And this one is pure pleasure! Extremely quiet to the point I have to check the switch to see if I have it on or off. There is no steam condensation on my mirrors despite a long hot shower. I'm certain the ceiling corner will not grow any more mold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tremendous improvement Selected this fan to replace a builder-installed Broan fan which was loud and not moving enough air in my master bathroom. Did a long search and determined Panasonic made the best out there. I paired this with a radiation damper from Panasonic (I live in a condo) and a timer switch. This combination will save energy and be much quieter over my old fan. Thanks Panasonic for building such a great product at an affordable price.

  • 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?

  • 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.
