According to Anita So, marketing manager, Panasonic Home & Environment Company, consumers, in general, desire energy efficient products in their homes because the return can entail lower energy bills. "Consumers also want to do their part to reduce their carbon footprint and help reduce Green House Gas emissions," she continues.
The company's WhisperGreen Premium Ventilation Fans series is an example of product development that helps consumers accomplish those goals. The series has been expanded to include four new models: two designed for 4" ducts and two designed for larger bathrooms with 6" ducts. All four fans have sone levels of 0.5. The line includes variable speed controls that range from 0-130 CFM and a delay timer feature. The WhisperGreen series is Energy Star-rated and HVI certified.
