Customer Reviews

Our basement smells consistently fresh.
James D. Lincoln
The machine is as quiet as a whisper, even our fridge from 2011 is louder than it.
Aegis
It makes it much easier to terminate the installation.

I like this product. The cost of installing though, far exceeds the cost to buy the unit. Running the lines, and most importantly, making the penetration through the side of the house (especially hard if its a basement), will be a lot of work. Also don't forget an electrician will have to wire it.

Also, DEFINITELY get the accessory panasonic makes, the wall cap. It makes it much easier to terminate the installation.

Anyhow, I have two units, installed one in my basement, one upstairs. I have them running all the time on the lowest setting, 10CFM, and the house is constantly fresh.

Also it does a pretty good job of recovering heat in the winter, so the air blowing in is just a bit cooler than room temp, but not by much, considering it is below 40 degrees outside.

In the summer, the efficiency is a little reduced. So if its very hot, as in 90 degrees outside, and inside its 75, the air temp blowing in is still about 81-83 degrees. Still a better option than opening the window.

I installed this ERV in my roughly 1200 sqft basement that had previously had dehumidifiers running around the clock.

The Basement is new construction with very dry soil composition and waterproofed "rubber"walls, however once the building envelope was closed, spray-foamed and sealed the Basement began to "sweat" or be a collection point for interior condensation.

The smell was unpleasant and the Dehumidifiers helped but used too much energy, made too much noise, and required my time to maintain.

I had always planned to put in an ERV but the basement wouldn't be part of the main system, so I gave panasonic a try.
Short story, installed in october here in NY and the moisture and odor are completely gone. The energy usage is minimal and the sound is non-existent.

The temperature isn't really affected which is a bonus.

If something changes midsummer with the added exterior humidity I shall bring report!

Purchased it over year and half ago in my basement. Installation was easy, but I wish the electric box is little larger.
Provided instructions can be improved.
I think Panasonic needs to product better hooking/screwing set up. Took me few tries to get it right and my basement was not finished. (may be it's me)
Quite
Working great.
recomand it.

use this for my basement and they do make a huge different in term of humidity and air quality. I used a timer to goes on high during daytime and low during night time. Just remember that you have to be pretty handy to install this due to the fact that it involves framing and electrical.

This ERV is a great buy for quick installation as a retrofit or new construction. Our project was an extension of the existing house, and we built it really tight with spray foam and caulk on all of the joints, so an air exchange method was absolutely necessary. Being that we built the house really tight for energy saving reasons, we also wanted to retain that energy when exchanging the air. This is where the Panasonic WhisperComfort ERV comes in.

I have tested the machine at 33 degrees outside, 66.7 degrees inside and the air being brought into the house is coming in at 54 degrees. Given that this machine is more efficient in the summer, I am impressed with the results so far. The machine is as quiet as a whisper, even our fridge from 2011 is louder than it.

Installation was generally very easy, but the installation manual contains quite a bit of useless information, and thus makes it somewhat confusing. I was able to find out how to install the machine, with two separate switches, one for on off, and one for high and low power. Also the manual notes that the power in should not be connected to the control switches. Make sure of this when installation the machine. During installation I discovered that it had two power options that you can choose from, 40/20 cfm and 20/10 cfm. This is selected by plugging the control wires to respective slots. I wish that the machine had a better way of controlling this, such as having separate switches under the decorative plastic cover.

Note: Underneath the decorative plastic cover, there is a hard shutoff in addition to the control wire shutoff.

Ordered this unit from Amazon for a basement remodel. The unit had a defective component, which was a nightmare to diagnose - I had an electrician poring over this thing for hours with testers trying to figure out why the wall switches wouldn't turn it on.

I called Panasonic tech support and spoke to an incredible helpful lady who walked me through taking the unit apart (yes, over the phone) to diagnose with an electrical tester. After a few minutes we located the defective part. I e-mailed them a copy of my Amazon order, and they sent me a replacement part free of charge. I could've called back to get help installing it, but I'm handy enough and installed it myself.

The unit worked flawlessly after that. Super quiet, and keeps the basement from developing a musty smell. I would highly recommend this to anyone in need of this type of unit to do a small basement remodel. Panasonic's customer service is fantastic and they stand behind their product.
