Panasonic WhisperCeiling 290 CFM Ceiling Mounted Fan

Key Features

  • {So Quiet You Might Not Know it's On
  • This 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. Panasonic's 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
  • {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
  • {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
  • {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 Panasonic 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 the 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
  • The Factory Warranty Shall Be a Minimum of 3 Years Limited Warranty on Parts

      Comments about Panasonic WhisperCeiling™ 290 CFM Ceiling Mounted Fan - FV-30VQ3:

      We recently installed this fan in our master bath - 12' x 14' with vaulted ceilings, shower, jetted tub, and two sinks. We've had a long-term moisture problem because of the lack of ventilation. This baby moves plenty of air to keep this bathroom dry and the mirrors steam-free, no matter how long we run a hot and steamy shower. It's relatively quiet for a bathroom fan, but EXTREMELY quiet when compared to other high volume (>150 CFM) fans. Note that installation is slightly tricky, as instructions recommend building a mounting frame out of extra 2x4's. Also, you need clamps and ducts to get the air to the outside. We vented through the roof using insulated 6" flexible duct. Note that a 2' horizontal run of the duct work maintains the silent operation; anything shorter tends to send vibrations back into the fan. We also installed it on a spring timer as the swtich, which was an excellent suggestion by our electrician.
