Panasonic FV-08WQ1

If you have a space in your home that badly needs some form of ventilation but you don't have wiring ready to install a ceiling fan, the Panasonic FV-08WQ1 wall mounted fan is the perfect answer. It has been designed to fit snugly on to your wall and won’t intrude on valuable space you may have in a bathroom or kitchen. Of course, looks have not gone unnoticed at the design stage. This model will happily fit into any décor.

Review Details

Panasonic is a household name and for good reason. Their products are built using the latest technology available and they last. The FV-08WQ1 is no different.
Within this unit you will find the highest quality components and lubricated motors which suffer less wear and tear as time goes by.

The manufacturer has also built the condenser motor so it will operate efficiently in lower temperatures. Add to this a housing that’s made from galvanized steel using rust resistant paint and you have a unit that will be with you for years.
The FV-08WQ1 is one of the quietest fans of this type on the market so much so, you may not notice that it’s actually doing the job it’s built for.

What We Liked

  • No More Unwanted Cold Air
    The Panasonic FV-08WQ1 has an in-built damper which will prevent any back-draft from making its way into the room from outside.
  • Energy Efficient
    This wall mount fan comes with the highly acclaimed energy star rating so you can have peace of mind you’re helping the environment (and your bills) by using less energy.
  • Whisper Quiet
    Due to the high quality components used, Panasonic has produced a wall mount fan that will barely make a sound when in operation.
  • Highly Durable
    All of the parts within this fan have been through rigorous tests. The manufacturer has also added a number of features to ensure this unit will not suffer wear and tear like many other models of this type.
  • Efficient Air Production
    The FW-08WQ1 has been designed to draw air in from both sides allowing the blower to produce more air per cubic foot.

What We Didn't Like

  • Tricky Installation
    As with many fans of this type, they can be tricky to install so it might be worth asking a professional to do it for you.
  • Pricey
    Some may say you’re paying for the name but considering the amount of effort that has gone into the design of the FV-08WQ1 and how long it will last, many consider the extra is worth it.


Panasonic has done a great job producing a wall mounted fan that’s efficient for the job it’s meant for. Their technical department has also put an immense amount of effort into making sure the FV-08WQ1 will last for many years, especially in moist environments such as a bathroom. This is something many other manufacturers cannot boast. It may cost a little bit extra but it will pay for itself in the long-run and is well worth the investment.
