WhisperLite® 110 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. One 32-watt compact fluorescent lamp1 will provide plenty of overhead lighting while the convenient, 4-watt nightlight will help you find your way through the room in the dark.

Quiet Operation at .25" Water Gauge
WhisperCeiling fans feature a totally enclosed condenser motor and a double-tapered, dolphin shaped bladed blower wheel to quietly move air. Since .1" w.g. is an unrealistic amount of static pressure when installed, our fans have been rated at .25" w.g., the industry standard for performance measurement for ASHRAE, ENERGY STAR, LEED for Homes, and HVI. Panasonic leads the way with incomparable sone levels at both .1" and .25" w.g.

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.

Reviews

FV-11VQL5 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from no longer whisper quiet like it used to be Fan was installed in ceiling of 1st floor master bath shower (2 story house) in Aug 2012 to replace a noisy and lower CFM Broan fan of 16 yrs. It was really quiet at first, then slowly started to get louder, no motor hum, or vibration, just wind noise. I recently got up on a ladder and removed the cover and saw that the squirrel cage "blades" were pretty well caked with dust. So it appears that the noise is due to build-up on the blades. I have tried cleaning the blades but there are a lot of them and I haven't found a real good brush that will get between them and also deep enough to clean them. A toothbrush doesn't cut it. Panasonic's tech support says the whole motor assembly will drop out of the case, and that will make it easy to clean the cage. I have yet to try it. I was hoping this fan was going to be less maintenance than the previous one, but I can now see it is possibly going to be more. It is a great fan, but it would have been nice to be informed that it could also be high maintenance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ventilation and whisper quiet Just installed this model bathroom fan in Feb.2013. This unit is unbelievably quiet compared to many ventillation fans I've owned and heard in the past. The unit is a little pricier than average, but I do believe Panasonic make a superior quality product. This unit is well built with heavy duty components and was simple enough to install, only minor modifications were required to retrofit this newer fan into my existing bathroom. Original fan was a 70cfm with 8x8 opening in the ceilling. Removed existing unit, modified opening, installed new fan and ran new vent piping and outside vent cap in approx. 3 hours. I am not a tradesman or contractor, but do know basic construction and handy man duties. Hope this review helps.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Choice The unit lite has a long warm up, color temp is too cool, the lamp is not easily aquired and specific to this unit and is not as effecient as an LED which has a universal edison base. Also, could not compare fan hoise since SONS were not displayed.
