Mitigate Moisture with WhisperValue Ventilation Fans
- Oct 01, 2013
We’ve said it before and we will say it again: Preventative maintenance is one of the best things you can do to keep maintenance costs low and preserve the value of your asset. Moisture control should be at the top of the list when it comes to preventative maintenance, and apartment bathrooms are almost always ground zero for the types of water issues that can quickly lead to mold. Luckily there is a new tool to help with the fight.
Panasonic Eco Solutions North America has introduced a new generation of WhisperValue and WhisperValue-Lite ventilation fans. The units provide builders and contractors with the complete package of easy installation, quality and affordability. New models are UL approved for wall mount, which makes them the ideal choice for multifamily builders as the wall installation reduces costs by eliminating the need to incorporate a radiation damper when penetrating fire-rated ceilings.
The new generation of ventilation fans will still come with a Universal-Can Contractor Pack, which allows contractors to install the housing of the fan right after the apartment framing. The motor and grill can be installed at a later time when construction is complete.
These fans have the lowest profile in the line’s history, and are Energy Star rated (they also comply with ASHRAE 62.2, California Title 24, and the WA Ventilation Code). For more information about Panasonic ventilation fans, be sure to visit their site.
