It has been 60 years since the invention of the first ventilating fan in 1958. Ever since its launch in the 1900s, Panasonic has always been dedicated to improving the IAQ (indoor air quality) by supplying ventilating fans, electrical fans, and air purifiers. In December 2018, the Panasonic Group company had shifted its focus entirely on indoor air quality (IAQ) and environmental systems. It was also when they had successfully globally accumulated a large production of ventilating Panasonic fans – more or less 200 million.
Top Features of Panasonic House Exhaust Fans:
SOUND: really quiet.
When looking for a proper bathroom exhaust fan sound should be at the top of your list. Panasonic fans are outstandingly quiet. They all work together to achieve a distinct and quiet design with their tip speed, wheel blower, exhaust outlet, and motor.
The tip-speed is the ratio of a blade’s tangential velocity to actual wind speed. The tip-speed rate is related to its performance, with blade design differing to the optimum. The higher tip speeds lead to increased noise levels due to greater centrifugal forces, which need stronger blades.
The Panasonic fans’ tip speed uses a large blower wheel at specific RPMs, which carries a large volume of air. The bigger wheel and the lower RPMs at the tip make lesser speed and sound.
Quiet motor is an AC, and the Panasonic fans utilize four-pole DC condenser motors. The four-pole system supports the AC motor fan to spin smoothly and efficiently. This not only helps reduce noise but currently, it also managed to make Panasonic motors became one of the most powerful fan motors.
The function of the double suction blower wheel in a Panasonic fan is to pull air from both ends, causing air to enter the wheel in more space – making the blower wheel a betting air link, and lessens noise and allows the ventilation system more accurate.
The exhaust outlet is one of the essential features in a Panasonic fan, which is as big as the blower wheel. When it exits the tunnel, it means less turbulent ventilation and less vibration to keep the exhaust outlet at the same distance as the blower wheel.
Proven to be sturdy and durable.
Production of Panasonic motors is controlled, with an electronic system that has the ability to detect any glitches or defects. The production facilities which manufacture Panasonic fans have been identified by the International Standards Organization (ISO) as among the world’s most excellent quality companies.
Panasonic fans have always been recognized for their trademark of its product in having long-lasting features. Its fans are intended to give a minimum of 30,000 hours of continuous service, and 100,000 hours of average life. This is around eleven and a half years without ever turning it off. Manufacturing of motors, quality manufacturing facilities, and fan housing made a significant contribution to the reason why a Panasonic fan is known to be highly durable or could last a long time.
Moreover, the fan housing is made of heavy-gauge zinc galvanized steel and painted to protect it from rust. The outer part of the fan housing encloses the airflow space created by the fan radially outwards, a fan wheel revolving around the specified axis of rotation in the opening of the airflow, a motor with a motor winding to drive the fan wheel.
Cost-efficient because it is energy efficient.
Panasonic fans are among the lowest in the manufacturing industry when they relate to input wattage utilization. This low wattage draw is obtained by way of a unique motor set-up, constrained consumption, and a large wheel blower. Panasonic’s AC fan condenser has a special engine type that uniquely works as a capacitor to effectively and reliably store and send electrical energy to the coil. This decreases the power draw and boosts the electrical efficiency of the engine. Panasonic ‘s DC brushless motor supplies unmatched energy output to the magnetic rotor and print circuit board. The magnetic rotor resists energy loss, while the print circuit board contains a unique IC chip which measures and assists the RPM of the fan blade. The overall effect of these two unique qualities helps the DC engine achieve better energy efficiency than an AC motor.
The wide blower wheel of the Panasonic also improves the airflow performance, allowing the fan to operate at a lower RPM and also to mitigate energy consumption.
A fan uses energy to flow through ducts to circulate air. As the ventilator drives air through a pipe, static pressure indicates the strength of that airflow. The static rate is determined in inches of a water column or water scale, indicating that a water scale column is equal to force. This measurement means that the resistance is similar to a one-tenth water column or one-fourth of an inch high if it represents a static pressure as 0.1″ water scale or 0.25 water gauge.
Conventional bathrooms should have a fan for every square foot of floor space, which can at least expel one cubic foot of air per minute (CFM). A single 100 CFM exhaust ventilator can handle an average of 100 sq. ft. bathroom with tub or wardrobe.
Due to extreme humidity and a higher risk of corrosion, all ventilation systems in a damp surrounding could be the leading cause that it will not last a long time. Fans used in high humidity conditions must be used for an extended period of time to ensure dampness and to mitigate the possibility of condensation in the fan’s body or ducting.
A Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) is designed to protect Panasonic fans, which is why it is okay to install it in bathrooms.
