The Panasonic FV-11VQ5 is the newest release from Panasonic in the WhisperCeiling series of ventilation fans. Panasonic discontinued the .8 Sone, 110 CFM, FV-11VQ3 for this next-generation, enhanced version. It is essentially the same model with some minor variations, the most noticeable being a reduction in operational sound level from .8 Sone to .3 Sone. The power consumption between the two units has also been reduced from 30.7W to 21.1W (at .1 static pressure), which drops the Amperage from .26 to .18, making this unit more efficient.

The FV-11VQ5 is relatively large, but a fantastic performer for the money. The rough-in cut required to mount the unit is 10-1/2" x 10-1/2". The outside grill is 13" x 13". A cardboard template is supplied to assist in drawing the physical layout of the rough-in cut on the ceiling. This greatly enhanced the ease of installation. Opening the unit, there's little that needs to be done other than remove the tape from the internal assembly. The mounting rails and screws are included.

Aside from sizing and attaching the ventilation ductwork, all that's required is to mount the unit and wire it up. Wiring is as simple as attaching a white, black, and green wire to an existing AC line and ground source.

My wife and I installed this unit together in the attic within an hour. We had complications with the ductwork that vents out the roof not lining up, which required some custom cuts to complete a final mounting. This took about 30 minutes, but aside from this, it is a very simple ventilation fan to install.

Following the installation, I turned the breaker back on and had my wife do the honors with the wall switch. She pushed it and after a second looked at me with that look that says, "Uh oh... Something's wrong!

This is a lovely fan, beautifully made. Contrary to many comments, it IS possible, and is NOT difficult, to install it from below the ceiling with NO drywall repair. My house has space above the ceiling, 24" joist spacing, and no attic or crawl access. So here's how I did it. Unfortunately the installation instructions omit some key info, which I provide, but if what follows seems needlessly detailed, please forgive. (Page refs are to the instructions - see

(1) The original Broan builder fan was attached to a ceiling joist on one side and projected through an 8" x 8" hole in the 1/2" ceiling drywall. I demo'd as follows: Turned off the fan switch (or breaker) (important!). Unplugged & removed the old motor assembly, then twisted & scrunched the sheet metal housing with a ViseGrip & small prybar until it came loose, finally pulled it out downward and disconnected the wires and air duct. (Was careful not to damage the ceiling drywall much.)

(2) I enlarged the ceiling hole to 10.5" x 10.5" with a drywall saw.

(3) Prepped the new fan: Discarded the supplied suspension brackets (useless for below-ceiling install) and screws (too short). Removed & discarded the bracket cover (p. 4, no. 8). Re-installed the bracket cover screws (could have taped the holes). Finally, removed one key screw marked "tighten securely for good ground" (or words to that effect), unplugged the fan motor, and pulled off the electrical + air duct panel. (Thanks to D. Mahalick, comment July 25, 2011, for this tip.)

(4) Adapting Installation III, p. 8, I cut a second "false" joist from a piece of 1.5" x 3.5" x 45" fir stud, pushed it up through the ceiling hole, and fitted it between two nearby cross members, parallel to and on the other side of the hole from the first joist.

The fan assembly is large and heavy. Was shocked at how much bigger it was (about 4X) compared to the tiny one i got from builder of the house. The fan looks heavy duty, made with lot of metal and heavy duty plastic. Looks like very good quality. The instructions to install was very basic. It showed 3 different ways to install using their bracket. It may be good to use the brackets if installing from the attic but cannot use when installing from below, inside the bathroom. I didn't want to install from above because it was hard to get to section of the attic where the master bathroom was.

Installing in attic may be easy but from below was a nightmare. The unit was big and heavy. The wires were short and i had to get some extra electrical wires to extend and connect. They should have had longer wiring or better yet a plug that snap in/out in for easy install. Since the unit was so heavy, it needed to be supported by both beams in the ceiling. Was trying to improvise by nailing in some extra wood to the support beams to be able screw it from the bottom but but it was very difficult. Took several hrs. to install but got it done. It would have been nice if they had a flat bracket to nail onto a single beam and then hang the unit on it. The brackets supplied went across and needed 2 beams to support. No way to reach in and do that from below.

Was happy to see that it worked and it was able to hold a tissue (my old fan could not) when placed on the grill and that it was very quiet. Happy with fan but not the installation.
