Panasonic, which was named a 2011 Energy Star Partner of the Year, will display the fans at booth W3929 in the exhibit hall. NAHB members who register for IBS in September can receive a free, four-day expo pass.
All the ventilation fans meet the requirements for a number of green building programs and are the only vent fans on the market to incorporate a dual motion and humidity sensor to improve indoor air quality.
The fans incorporate Panasonic’s SmartAction motion sensor with a delay-off timer that activates when a person enters the bathroom and automatically turns off 20 minutes after the occupant has left. If the occupant has taken a shower or bath, the built-in humidity sensor overrides the delay timer to exhaust moisture until the humidity is back down to the pre-set level.
The 80-110 CFM WhisperSense models are also ideal for renovation projects since the fans include Panasonic’s new Dual Duct Adapter, which gives the contractor the ability to install the fan in a 4-inch or 6-inch duct without having to purchase an additional adapter.
Headquartered in Secaucus, N.J, Panasonic Corporation of North America is a member of NAHB’s Leading Suppliers Council.
