Panasonic FV-08VRL1 WhisperRecessed Bathroom Fan
Throughout its history, Panasonic has made understanding how its products can impact people's lives a core focus for product development and refinement. "Ideas For Life" is a reflection of that commitment and a guiding force for what can be expected from Panasonic
The fans are great. I just installed 3 of them in a condo remodel and they are quiet. They move a lot of air and put out a decent amount of light.
The one thing that I would like to mention is that there are new model out now and hopefully soon to be available on Amazon that will feature built-in LED lights instead of these compact fluorescent bulbs with the GU24 base. Just search GU24 Bulb on Amazon and you will see replacement bulbs for less than $10 or GU24 to E26 adapters that will allow you screw in a standard light bulb or led. There is a Feit A19/DM/800/GU24/LED bulb that may work. I will have to try it out and see if it will fit size wise.
All fans made by Panasonic have really moved the exhaust fan market forward in terms of quality, performance, design and features. I now only spec Panasonic fans. This one did not disappoint. The trim ring is a standard 6" with side springs that can be changed out with a different one. The fan box also fits into a basic 6" hole, so if you are replacing an existing 6" can then this should fit there fine.
I am very happy with this bathroom light/fan combo. My contractor installed it above my shower and I am so happy with it. The CFL works fine and the hidden vent works great. It's so nice to be able to shower with the bathroom door closed and the vanity does not fog up! I highly recommend this product. It looks so much better than a separate light and fan.
I bought two of these fans for my 1950s construction bathrooms that previously had no fans. After having the bathroom ceilings replastered twice because of shower steam damage over time, I decided it was time to install ceiling fans. I initially thought I'd have to have the square type ceiling fans, but I ran across these fans that look just like a regular can light. Because I already have can lights in both bathrooms, it was easy to replace a light with a fan. I say "easy" because I'm not the one who had to go up into the attic to do the work, but the handyman had no trouble installing the fans. They're much quieter than other fans I've seen, and do a powerful job of removing the steam. No more cracking plaster!
We bought this fan/light combo as we wanted something quiet that looked nice. We couldn't find a light fixture that went well with the newly renovated bathroom, so decided on this one due to the clean recessed look. We're very happy with how it looks. The fan is excellent, when the shower is running you can't even hear it and there is no steam build-up visible (bathroom is ~50 sq ft with a 9' ceiling). There are two positions for the light, in the lower position it is much brighter, but it restricts the airflow. In the lower position we found it did not move enough air (though it was virtually silent and noticeably brighter). In the upper (more recessed) position the light isn't overly bright, but as long as it's not your only light source (e.g. have lights on the wall by the mirror) it is sufficient for regular use. The bulb is a GU24 base - so it plugs in, doesn't screw in, and while there is the telltale hum of the florescent, it isn't any louder than a standard screw type CFL. When/if the fan goes in the other bathroom we'll likely get another one of these as a replacement.
Worth the price. If you want quiet, as in whisper quiet, this is it. It is not a high volume fan though, but sufficient for a shower/tub combo bathroom. Install it with the largest duct it can take to eliminate back pressure and choose the shortest path with the least amount of turns. It can be wired for seperate light and fan, but I had to wire them together so we will all know when its on without having to stop next to it and be quiet. The only con is the crazy socket it came with. Had to get an adapter, an LED bulb (keep the plastic cover) and thats that. Will definitely buy again.
Love love love this bathroom fan! We did a bathroom renovation and our bathroom had an exhaust fan, but it sounded like an airplane landing. My husband installed this fairly easily but with some drywall patching. This fan is pleasantly quiet and the light is a huge difference - it's located over our shower which never had a light before. I don't know how we showered without this light before! The fan pulls the air out perfectly and our mirrors are no longer steamed up.
This bathroom light/vent has blown me away with how well it works. I've heard Panasonic was the best, and now I'm certainly a believer. Super quiet and and works amazing! Would recommend to anyone, just make sure to measure your CFM in a your bathroom so see if 80 is sufficient.
