REPLACES MODEL FV-05VQ3 

Panasonic WhisperCeiling Bathroom Fan FV-05VQ5  - The newest generation of fan from Panasonic.   A new generation of energy efficiency, quiet operation and unparalleled performance. 

Any manufacturer can achieve low sone levels at .1" w.g. - the amount of static pressure with 10 feet of duct and a wall cap. But today's houses have longer and more complicated duct runs. Since .1" w.g. is an unrealistic amount of static pressure when installed, ASHRAE, ENERGY STARŽ, LEED for Homes, and HVI have set the industry standard for performance measurement at .25" w.g..  Panasonic leads the way with incomparable sone levels at both .1" and .25" w.g.

Air Movement: 50 CFM
Duct Diameter (inches): 4"
Sound:  <0.3 sones 

FEATURES:

  • 3-Year warranty
  • Built-in damper to prevent backdraft
  • ASHRAE 62.2, LEED, and CA Title 24 compliant
  • UL listed for tub/shower enclosure when used with a GFCI branch circuit
  • Meets Washington State Ventilation and Indoor Air Quality Code
  • Thermal fuse protection
  • ENERGY STAR Rated

So Quiet You Might Not Know it's On
This WhisperCeilingT model 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 StarŽ 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.

          We put this in our bathroom for a remodel. It is so quiet! I make everyone turn it on who comes to see the new bathroom. They are amazed! It works great, too! Thanks for such a great product.

            Comments about Panasonic WhisperCeiling Bathroom Fan FV-05VQ5:

            I was extremely disappointed in the back draft damper. The flapper just hangs in the duct, it does not have a flange to close onto. You can see lots of daylight looking through the duct to the fan. If you buy this fan I recommend you buy an in-duct damper for it and remove Panasonics cheap flapper.

                  This fan is so quiet I have to go check to see if I left it on. It can't be heard in the room above and is almost impossible to hear through a closed door. Compared to this one the old one sounded like a dryer full of rocks. I have one more fan to replace in a guest half bath and it will be a Panasonic.

                    I am very satisfied with my purchase. At this time the bath is not yet completed, so I have yet to enjoy the full benefit.

                        More work to remove old unit than new install. Enlarge hole, tuck under drywall and secure along with provided brackets. So quiet, you can fall asleep reading.
