Poor back flow prevention

By Anonymous from Ontation, Canada on 02/06/2012


Cons:

Did Not Meet Expectations, Poor Quality

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The fan is extremely quiet, no doubt about it. The one poor feature is the ability of the back draft damper to stop air flowing in the reverse direction. When the wind blows in the direction of the exhaust grill, on the outside of the house , there's so much air flowing through the back draft damper the blower is actually spinning in reverse. To stop cold air entering the house I've had to remove the grill from the bathroom ceiling and cover the fan with plastic. Very disappointed with this relatively costly fan.

SUPER QUIET - DIFFICULT INSTRUCTIONS

By Karl from Los Angeles County on 11/09/2008


Describe Yourself:

Quality Oriented

Pros:

Quiet

Primary use:

Personal

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this unit as a replacement ventilation fan. The quality of the unit is absolutely first rate. I found the instructions confusing as there were four separate way to install the unit given - all of the instructions seemed similar, often encompassing two or three pages and eight illustrations. For Replacement, the instructions were two sets of three lines and you had to decipher which of the three to chose. No matter your situation, if you already have the ceiling in place, first mount the so-called Adapter plate to rafter and second frame the unit on three sides -- you can't on the fourth because of the exhaust and wiring. Remove the Adapter and mount it with the flange on the ceiling surface closest the floor. Once you've done that the installation goes easier

Panasonic fans are the BEST!!!

By Anonymous from Undisclosed on 10/20/2008


Pros:

Durable, Easy To Use, Quiet, Low Power Consumption, Convenient, Exceeded Expectations

Cons:

None!!!

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This fan is so quiet, you won't even know that it's on! I have ran this particular fan for a week straight now, 24 hours a day, and there hasn't been any heat buildup or any problems whatsoever. I can't even find a warm spot on the unit! Plus, it operates using only 22.8 watts! That's less than half that of a standard light bulb. Since I will be running this fan continuously until it quits (hopefully years), that will be a lot of money saved on electricity throughout the life of the fan compared to other brands with the same air flow capacity. I gave 3 stars for features because this particular fan doesn't have any options like variable flow, etc. There are other fans that Panasonic makes with those features. This one is just the basic model. Super smooth, super quiet, and great quality from panasonic. If you're looking for a top notch fan, these are the BEST buy for the money.

I was seeking a very quiet bathroom fan - this is it. The real plus was that it was a very easy install in existing 30 year old construction. It impressed my electrician so much he is switching to the Panasonic WhisperCeiling for all future jobs.
