Low-Profile Housing for Smaller Ceiling Cavities
Do you have 2" x 6" joists in your ceiling? Are you having trouble finding a ventilating fan that will fit in this small cavity? Well, this model was made just for you. Designed to fit 2" x 6" joists or larger, this low-profile fan doesn't sacrifice performance for size. An optional 3" duct adaptor is also included for those areas where a smaller duct is necessary.
Quiet Operation at .25" Water Gauge
ASHRAE, ENERGY STARŪ, LEED for Homes, and HVI have set the industry standard for performance measurement at .25" w.g. The new WhisperWelcome fans not only provide powerful CFM output at .25" w.g., but our sones have also been certified at .25" w.g. So they are quiet under pressure and after installation.
Continuous, Trouble-free Operation for Many Years
This fan is designed to give you continuous, trouble-free operation for many years thanks in part to its high-quality components and permanently lubricated motors which wear at a slower pace. Also, since heat is always detrimental to motor life (the cooler the environment, the longer the motor will last), we designed the electrical configuration of this model's condenser motor to allow it to operate at lower temperatures, increasing the life of the motor and bearings. And, the fan housing is made of heavy-gauge zinc galvanized steel and painted to protect it from rust.
Detachable adaptors, firmly secured duct ends, adjustable mounting brackets (up to 26"), fan/motor units that detach easily from the housing and uncomplicated wiring all lend themselves to user-friendly installation. This model also features a double-hanger bar system for ideal positioning.
Energy StarŪ Qualified for Energy Savings

As an Energy Star partner, all our fans are Energy Star qualified and labeled accordingly.
Tired of Cold Air Coming Through Your Ventilation Fan?
This Panasonic fan has a built-in damper to prevent backdraft, which helps to prevent outside air from coming through the fan. Also, thanks to our efficient, cool running motors and fluorescent bulbs, it does not create excessive heat-a common problem with recessed lighting fixtures and some competitors' fan/light combinations. Loose fill or batt insulation can be placed directly over the fan housing to prevent heat from escaping.
