Panasonic's WhisperGreen ventilation fans
Panasonic introduces new models in its popular WhisperGreen line.
Panasonic Home & Environment expanded its WhisperGreen line of premium ventilation fans, with the addition of two new WhisperGreen-Lite models this month. Designed for 4” ducts, the new energy-efficient WhisperGreen-Lite FV-08VKML2 and FV-08VKSL2 models feature built-in variable speed controls that range from 0–80 cubic feet per minute (CFM) and a built-in delay timer that can be preset up to 60 minutes. The low speed controls on the 80 CFM models can be pre-set to 0, 30–70 CFMs. When the fan is activated, it boosts up to high speed of 80 CFM and after a pre-determined time period, the fan returns the pre-set low speed operation. Other advantages of the new models include ultra-quiet operation with noise levels of less than 0.3 sones (quieter than rustling shrubs), two 18-watt compact fluorescent Energy Star– qualified light bulbs, and a nightlight feature (4-watt bulb). Also, the new WhisperGreen-Lite models now provide homeowners with the ability to use the fan for spot or continuous ventilation.
