Product Details

Panasonic WhisperWall 70 CFM Wall Mounted Fan, Model FV08WQ1

Can't Install a Fan in the Ceiling? Don't Worry. This WhisperWall™ fan was designed specifically for through-the-wall mounting to provide ventilation in rooms where a ceiling mounted fan is not possible. An exterior hood with a backdraft damper is included to finish off the job.

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. 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.

  • 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.

      Wall fan was our only option but very pleased

          Comments about Panasonic WhisperWall 70 CFM Wall Mounted Fan:

          When we remodeled our master bath in a recently purchased older home, I discovered the two old, noisy exhaust fans were vented to inaccessible attic space. The only option to correct the situation was a wall fan. I was a bit nervous about cutting a hole in the side of my house but installation was straight forward and easier than ceiling exhaust fans I've installed in the past. Noise was important and this Panasonic is VERY quiet. It's only rated at 70 CFM but really seems to pull a lot more air than the 2 old ceiling exhaust fans. It is pricey but worth the money for me.

          What about air sealing??

          By 

          from Adams, MA

          Pros

          • Durable

          Cons

          • does not seal out air when off

            Comments about Panasonic WhisperWall 70 CFM Wall Mounted Fan:

            I can't believe nobody thinks about air sealing when the fan is off! Yes, it is an attractive and quiet fan, but if your house is in the North and gets any amount of wind, put your hand on it... lots of cold air coming into the house (and hot air leaving it). For this reason I'm sorry to say I can't recommend this product. I will be replacing it with one that seals when off.

              Comments about Panasonic WhisperWall 70 CFM Wall Mounted Fan:

              I bought two of these when we did a second story addition. I had to use wall fans because of the framing configuration in the two bathrooms. I looked for quite a while for a wall fan that didn't sound like a jet engine when you turned it on. This model is REALLY quiet, and still moves a lot of air. They were pricey, but they have been very reliable and I have not had any problems, now running on to 9 years.

                  Moved into a rental property which has this installed. Curious, I looked the model up online to find out a bit more. VERY quiet and pulls the air very well. Not sure what the cost of the unit was, but it is a great product. Intsalled for more than 5 years and running like a champ!
