Panasonic WhisperCeiling DC and WhisperSense DC Lines Upgraded for Greater Efficiency and Flexibility

 December, 5th 2017     Comments     Views

Panasonic Eco Solutions North America has upgraded two of its ventilation fans: WhisperCeiling DC™ and WhisperSense DC™. Quiet, powerful and aesthetically pleasing, the advanced WhisperCeiling DC™ and WhisperSense DC™ precision spot ventilation fans provide greater flexibility to builders and contractors looking for a high-performing, easy-to-install fan that satisfies the latest building codes. Both lines now boast the acclaimed Pick-A-Flow™ speed selector that offers the ability to customize the ventilation fan for a variety of applications and to meet required airflow CFMs with just the flip of a switch.

With homeowner demand for energy efficient home technologies on the rise, WhisperCeiling DC™ and WhisperSense DC™ ventilation fans are suitable for incorporation into new construction, as well as remodeling projects. All models in the WhisperCeiling DC™ and WhisperSense DC™ lines include an ECM motor with Smart Flow™ technology that senses static pressure and automatically increases fan speed to ensure optimal CFM output, even with a complicated duct run. Integrated 4” or 6” dual duct adapters provide builders and contractors with greater installation options without having to worry about an additional adapter.  

Both ENERGY STAR® certified ventilation lines improve indoor air quality (IAQ) by removing moist, polluted air from a home whether it’s in a bathroom, laundry room or garage. An additional feature in the fight against mold and mildew can be found in the WhisperSense DC™ line where a built-in dual sensor (motion and moisture) technology provides an added layer of defense against moisture and odor – a convenient feature for installers concerned about CALGreen compliance.

The WhisperCeiling DC™ and WhisperSense DC™ both offer a number of additional built-in features that provide greater installation options and flexibility to help installers protect the structural integrity of a customer’s home:

  • Flex-Z Fast bracket allows for fast and trouble-free installation from above and below the ceiling
  • UL listed for tub/shower enclosure when GFCI protected
  • Built-in damper reduces the amount of back drafting and helps with blower door testing
  • Built-in metal flange acts as an air barrier protecting drywall from moisture penetration, as well as a method of decreasing leakage in the building envelope during blower door testing

Optional models also include LED lighting with a contemporary flush mount grille that incorporates one 10W dimmable LED chip panel with <1W LED night light for warm, energy efficient illumination. Panel specifications include: 3000 Kelvin Warm White/90CRI/700 lumens/70 LPW/ENERGY STAR 2.0 certified/ JA-8 compliant for CA Title 24 /50,000 hours rated average life. 

“With the new upgrades to the WhisperCeiling DC™ and WhisperSense DC™ lines, Panasonic is able to expand our line of precision spot ventilation fans and offer greater performance and flexibility for builders, contractors and distributors,” said Patricia Monks, National Marketing Manager, Panasonic Eco Solutions North America. “The combination of our Pick-A-Flow speed selector combined with SmartFlow™ technology helps simplify the selection process and ensures optimum performance to meet code and reduce callbacks. Distributors can now carry less inventory without sacrificing selection, while builders ensure their homes are better equipped to stand up against stale air and excess moisture.

WhisperCeiling DC™ and WhisperSense DC™ can be used to comply with ASHRAE 62.2, LEED, IAP, EarthCraft, California Title 24, and WA Ventilation Code. WhisperSense DC™ can also be used to comply with CALGreen.
