LEED for Homes, the ENERGY STAR® Homes Indoor Air Package, the National Association of Home Builders Green Buildings Standard, and the 2008 California Title 24 all use ASHRAE Standard 62.2 for the ventilation requirements. While 62.2 allows exhaust, supply, or balanced ventilation, the simplest solution is a continuous low flow (30-100 cfm) and quiet (max 1.0 sone) exhaust fan. Panasonic created the WhisperGreen fans and the WhisperComfort ERV specifically to meet 62.2. The WhisperGreen (WG) fans are the least expensive, most energy efficient, simplest to implement, and quietest way to meet ASHRAE 62.2.

WhisperGreen vent fans contribute to Panasonic's worldwide green mission.
- Up to 871% more energy efficient than ENERGY STAR® standards
- Enhanced DC motors expend less energy and are among the highest CFM/WATT in the industry
- Designed to meet ASHRAE 62.2 standards
WhisperGreen with DC Motor
Panasonic's DC brushless motor provides unparalleled energy efficiency with its magnetic rotor and print circuit board. The magnetic rotor prevents energy loss while the print circuit board incorporates a unique IC chip which monitors and directs the RPM of the fan blade. The combination of these two unique features allows the DC motor to have higher energy efficiency than an AC motor.
