New Panasonic WhisperFit EZ is the Ideal Remodeling Solution with Low Profile Design
Newark, NJ– Panasonic Eco Solutions of North America introduces WhisperFit® EZ, the fastest and easiest to install ENERGY STAR® retrofit ventilation fan available. WhisperFit® EZ is the ideal retrofit solution for any remodeler looking to quickly and easily replace an existing fan from below the ceiling. The WhisperFit® EZ enables users to utilize the existing duct, while its low profile housing design ensures a proper fit in virtually any ceiling. Installation is made simple with the Flex-Z Fast™ installation bracket with articulating joints for simple positioning through a ceiling cavity. The detachable installation adapter provides even greater flexibility when wiring and attaching the duct.
Available in three models, non-lighted, lighted, and non-lighted with motion sensor, the WhisperFit® EZ offers ultra-quiet performance and best-in-class ease of installation. Each model includes a built-in Pick-A-Flow™ speed selector that provides the unique ability to customize the airflow to meet the customers required ventilation needs (80 or 110 CFM), with the simple flip of a switch. The low profile (5-5/8”) housing design easily fits in 2x6 construction, ensuring WhisperFit® EZ will fit in virtually any remodeling project.
“At Panasonic, we are constantly developing new ways to help contractors and homeowners save time and money,” said Patricia Monks, Product Manager, Panasonic Eco Solutions North America. “The WhisperFit® EZ makes it easier than ever for remodelers to upgrade their customer’s home or living environments while providing all the benefits of quiet, efficient bathroom ventilation.”
WhisperFit® EZ fan model FV-08-11VFM5 incorporates a SmartAction® motion sensor with a 20 minute delay off timer that automatically activates the fan when someone enters the room. Once the settings have been applied, the fan becomes truly automatic, making it ideal for families with young children, people with disabilities, hospitality, as well as assisted living environments such as nursing homes and retirement communities.
In addition to easy installation and quiet operation, the WhisperFit® EZ lighted model features a flush mount grille with two 13W self-ballasted GU24 base CFL lamps, and comes with a 4” duct with 3” adapter. Panasonic’s WhisperFit® models can be used to comply with ENERGY STAR® 3.0, ASHRAE 62.2, LEED, IAP, California Title 24 and WA Ventilation Code.
