Panasonic is one of our favorite brands and over the years we’ve reviewed a lot of Panasonic products. This includes TVs, cameras, boomboxes, vacuum cleaners and myriad other gadgets. Now we dive into the home improvement side of things with the Panasonic FV-11VKL3 ventilation fan with built-in light.
We recommend professional installation of this fan unless you have a lot of attic space to work with. If you’re replacing a standard Nutone or some other brand common at the big box stores be prepared to create a larger opening for the FV-11VKL3. You may need a little mud to patch things up after the installation.
The FV-11VKL3 is a professional grade product and is built with quality components and designed to provide many years of service while resisting rust with galvanized parts.
Once installed, we were blown away, no pun intended, by how quiet this fan is. It moves a lot of air but it’s very quiet. This is similar to large computer fans that move more air but make less noise. It’s counterintuitive to some but once you get used to the quiet purr of the FV-11VKL3, and a large portion of the Panasonic lineup for that matter, everything else sounds like a small airplane.
The built-in light is perfect for a small bathroom. It’s bright and powers up quickly making the FV-11VKL3 the ideal all in one solution where fan/light combinations are a must.
Panasonic rarely disappoints. Yes, there was that lame Blu-ray player we tested a while back but for the most part its amazing how many products this company makes and makes well. The FV-11VKL3 is a high quality fan that we anticipate will provide many years of services. It’s extremely quiet, looks great and moves a lot of air. You can’t ask for much more than that.
If you’re in the market for a ventilation fan, we highly recommend looking at the Panasonic lineup. You’ll pay a little more but for something you’ll use everyday it’s well worth it.
