Panasonic is sponsoring the Beer Garden at Show Village on Feb. 4 and 5 from 4 to 6 p.m. You can get your free invitation by visiting Panasonic’s booth, C7131. At the booth Panasonic Eco Solutions will be introducing two new energy efficient ventilation fans.
Panasonic WhisperGreen Select™, the customizable vent fan for virtually any application.
Thanks to an impressive array of advanced options, our new WhisperGreen Select is the ideal all-purpose IAQ Solution. The ingenious new Pick-A-Flow (50-80-110 CFM) technology gives you the ability to select your required air flow with just the flip of a switch. Then, a set of four unique Plug ’N Play modules allows you to further customize the fan by choosing Multi-Speed Operation, Motion Sensor, Condensation Sensor and Automatic LED Night Light. With Multi-Speed you can select the proper CFM settings to satisfy ASHRAE 62.2 continuous ventilation requirements. WhisperGreen Select also
features our revolutionary DC Motor with SmartFlow™ optimum CFM technology and our unique LED replaceable lamps. Our new Flex-Z Fast™ bracket system provides quick and easy installation. WhisperGreen Select can also be used to comply with LEED for Homes, CalGreen and ENERGY STAR® for Homes 3.0.
For True Performance, install Panasonic’s New EcoVent™ with Veri-Boost™.
Raters are now using balometers to verify the airflow of installed vent fans prior to certifying that they meet ASHRAE 62.2, ENERGY STAR® 3.0 for Homes, LEED for Homes, CA Title 24, CalGreen and
most Green Building programs. With so many fans on the market failing to deliver designed airflow, you need to spare yourself the hassle of having to rip out an under-performing fan and replace it. That’s where the amazingly compact, yet incredibly powerful Panasonic EcoVent comes in. Need to bump up the CFM output to meet code? Just flip the Veri-Boost switch and you’re good to go. Panasonic EcoVent … think of it as your Verification Assurance policy.
