Product Description

Panasonic designs DC ceiling exhaust fans that not only produce maximum airflow, but also remove air impurities from your home while operating at whisper-quiet audio levels. Panasonic FV-0511VQ1 WhisperCeiling DC bathroom fan comes from a line of time-tested and customer approved quiet, yet powerful and energy efficient ventilation fans. This precision spot ventilation solution improves IAQ by effectively removing moist, polluted air from your bathroom, laundry room, sun room, basement or garage. When Panasonic FV-0511VQ1 WhisperCeiling DC Fan senses static pressure, its speed is automatically increased to ensure optimal CFM output. This feature provides peace of mind, as the installer doesn’t have to worry about compromising the fan’s performance, even with a complicated duct run. The built-in Pick-A-Flow speed selector provides the unique ability to select your desired airflow (50-80-110 CFM) with the flip of a switch. The Flex-Z Fast installation bracket with articulating joints is ideal for positioning the fan exactly where you want it, in old or new construction. An integrated dual 4-inch or 6-inch duct adapter gives greater flexibility in duct layout and design. Panasonic ventilation fans are ENERGY STAR certified. Panasonic fans use less energy, move larger volumes of air and run cooler, which means they last longer. The motors are equipped with a thermal-cutoff fuse, greatly reducing the likelihood of overheating and motor failure. Achieve quality air and energy efficiency with whisper-quiet sound levels for your spaces with Panasonic FV-0511VQ1 WhisperCeiling DC Fan.

1.0 out of 5 stars Please read this review before purchasing this bath fan - design defect.
By Jerry Learn on November 24, 2018
I had high hopes for this fan, as I have known Panasonic fans to be good quality units. As a high-performance homebuilder, I often recommend them to others and specify them for projects. I won't be recommending them in the future.

After installing the FV-0511VQ1 in my own home to replace an older undersized Broan, the problem with the Panasonic fan started immediately. With the first shower in the bathroom (not extraordinarily hot, and less than 10 minutes long) condensation was dripping back out of the fan grille onto the floor. The water was dripping out of a weep hole in the fan body which appears to be designed for that exact reason - to let condensation drip back out of the unit. After 4 or 5 phone calls in the course of a week's time to Panasonic technical help (with no helpful advice and even some condescension directed my way), the dripping problem persisted. In the meantime, I did the following in an effort to diagnose the condensation problem:

I tested the air volume movement with an exhaust fan flow meter and had a repeatable measured airflow rate of 90 CFM. WIth the static pressure from a duct, that isn't bad for a fan rated at 110 CFM and it exceeds the necessary ventilation rate for an 8' x 10' bathroom. The recommended air changes per hour for a bathroom fan is 8 ACH; for my bathroom with an 8' high ceiling this equals an air change rate of 5,120 cubic feet. The 90 CFM rate I was getting equals 5,400 cubic feet per hour. So I knew that airflow was not the problem (yes, the damper was operational and not taped shut from the factory).

I also used an infrared camera to check the thermal signature of the fan and surrounding ceiling area from below, with the fan both off and running, to make sure no cool air from the unconditioned attic was being pulled into the fan housing and causing condensation. The IR image showed a completely warm installation with no cold air leaks in both running and standby conditions.

The condescending Panasonic technical adviser insisted that condensation was occurring in the duct and running back into the fan body and out the grille. To check this, I pulled the fan body down out of the ceiling (this is actually one nice feature of this unit) immediately after a shower which caused the fan to drip. I stuck my hand and forearm about a foot or more into the duct and it was dry - no condensation or liquid water there. So that theory is invalid.

Let me pause and state a few other things here: The fan was installed with an insulated duct run of approx. 7 feet to a wall vent terminal, with no elbows, kinks or hard bends. The duct formed a gentle arc, and ran slightly up out of the unit to get above the ceiling joists and then sloped downward to the exterior wall. The entire fan housing was fully enclosed in insulation. Everything was done to best practices - the typical arguments of uninsulated duct, hard 90-degree bends, etc. did not exist in this installation. The fan was installed on a timer and ran for at least 15 minutes after each shower to clear any possible condensation in the duct. Not really an issue anyway, as the dripping was happening immediately after each shower was started.

As one last ditch test, on several occasions I started the fan and let it run anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes before a shower was started to try to "pre-warm" the fan body with warm, dry indoor air. Condensation happens when warm moist air contacts a cold surface, so if the fan body was still somehow too cool this would correct that issue. Short answer - no change, the Panasonic fan still dripped A LOT of water - sometimes several teaspoons worth - onto the floor (see photo).

Panasonic ultimately had no answers or explanation for the problem, and told me to return the fan. I finally did so, and replaced it with a Broan/Nutone RN110. The Nutone works perfectly, is just as quiet as the Panasonic, and doesn't rain water from my bathroom ceiling. All other installation conditions are the same - the only thing different is the fan unit itself.

I really wanted to like the Panasonic, but because of some kind of design flaw that causes condensation in the fan body, I can not recommend the FV-0511VQ1 fan to anyone.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not as quiet as advertised, low air movement
By ALam on April 20, 2019
Bought 2 units to replace the noisy Broan unit. One from Amazon (renew unit), the other from another Amazon seller (brand new unit).
Bath room size: 7ft W x 11ft L x 8ft H ; 110 cfm setting
1. Both units sound the same (above 40 dB)
2, Both of them do not provide significant air movement

Totally disappoint with this product.

Reviewed in Canada on March 10, 2019
I only just installed in my basement, so far I am very pleased. The air flow coming from the unit is fantastic for the noise it emits. Have purchased a second one to replace my main floor exhaust fan. Hooking up a 4" insulated exhaust vent. This is the cheapest price I have found for this item. $157 is well worth the $$ for this unit. The fan takes a couple seconds to start, dont be worried it's not faulty. I used my own Robertson screws for mounting to the ceiling joists.
