Benefits and Features of the Panasonic FV-05VS3
Technology That Boosts Performance
The perfect marriage of efficiency and convenience, new features and technologies make the latest generation of Panasonic ventilation fans perfect for many ventilation applications. Whisper quiet operation and outstanding performance are achieved through our aerodynamic fan design technology. This new approach uses features like a tapered Sirocco fan to deliver improved ventilation excellence. These design and engineering improvements were made specifically to reduce already incredibly low sone levels.
Super Low Profile Housing Design
With a housing depth of 3-3/4"", these super-slim fans minimize space requirements and installation time. Because the fan housing is slimmer than conventional fans, it requires less ceiling cavity to be installed. WhisperValue fans are ideal for remodeling and manufactured structured homes.
ENERGY STAR®-Qualified for Energy Savings
ENERGY STAR®-qualified products feature super-quiet operation and high CFM-to-Watt efficiency. The ENERGY STAR program was created to help consumers identify products that can save them money and protect the environment by saving energy. As an ENERGY STAR partner, all of our fans are ENERGY STAR-qualified and labeled accordingly.

Panasonic Corporation of North America and its subsidiaries and affiliates employ about 12,000 people in the region.
Established in New York City in 1959, Panasonic Corporation of North America was known as Matsushita Electric Corporation of America, until 2005 when its company name was changed to strengthen its connection to the brand and the customer. Throughout its history, Panasonic has made understanding how its products can impact people's lives a core focus for product development and refinement.
Contributing to the Well Being of People Principles
Worldwide, Panasonic Corporation and its subsidiaries are guided by a basic business philosophy created by founder Konosuke Matsushita. He began the journey in 1918 by inventing a two-socket light fixture. Profound in its import yet elegantly simple, Konosuke Matsushita's breakthrough led to what is now one of the world's largest electronics companies. As he built Matsushita Electric, he never lost sight of the importance of putting the needs of his customers and the public first.
That philosophy holds that the mission of the enterprise is to contribute to the progress and development of society and the well-being of people worldwide. This thinking continues to guide management to this day.
In the U.S., Panasonic creates and supports initiatives that contribute to people in the communities where it does business. Such initiatives include the Panasonic Foundation, which partners with school districts that are committed to school reform; Panasonic Kid Witness News, a worldwide video education program for public school children in underserved communities; and Panasonic Design Challenge, a program for New Jersey high schools that encourages engineering achievement, especially related to preserving the environment - and rewards students with scholarships.
Panasonic Corporation of North America is a strong proponent of the responsible recycling of electronics. Panasonic, together with Sharp Electronics Corporation and Toshiba America Consumer Products established Manufacturers Recycling Management Company, LLC (MRM), an EPA-award winning joint venture which manages collection and recycling operations. Working with MRM, Panasonic now has nearly 1800 locations at which end-of-life products can be dropped off for recycling. MRM's mission is to provide convenient recycling opportunities to consumers. Its long-term goal is sustainable electronic product recycling.
On a global basis Panasonic is committed to securing a healthy future for both the planet and its people. The company's founder, Konosuke Matsushita said Panasonic is about more than technologies, as our commitment to "people before products" demonstrates.
The company is pursuing advanced environmental strategies based upon three eco ideals, including reducing its global carbon footprint, vastly increasing the number of energy-efficient products it makes and encouraging the growth of environmental awareness and sustainability worldwide.
