The importance of ENERGY STAR® in healthy homes

Healthy homes require products that are occupant-friendly and eco-friendly. For our customers, that means powerful ventilation fans that assure good indoor air quality (IAQ) and meet ENERGY STAR® guidelines for energy efficiency.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), ENERGY STAR products are “independently certified to save energy without sacrificing features or functionality”. Simply stated, while providing their intended usefulness (i.e. heating/cooling, ventilation, washing/drying clothes, refrigeration, etc.) ENERGY STAR products must also reduce energy consumption, lower utility bills, and help protect the environment

How do products earn the ENERGY STAR label?

To earn the ENERGY STAR label, products must meet energy efficiency requirements that adhere to specifications based on these principles*:
• Contribute significant energy savings nationwide
• Deliver features and performance demanded by consumers, in addition to increased energy efficiency
• If more expensive than a less-efficient counterpart, consumer will recover their investment within a reasonable time through utility bill savings
• Energy efficiency can be achieved through widely available, non-proprietary technologies offered by multiple manufacturers
• Energy consumption and performance can be measured and verified
• Labeling shall effectively differentiate products and be visible for purchasers

How do ventilation fans earn the ENERGY STAR label?

  • Use higher performance motors with improved blade design and longer life
  • Deliver greater energy efficiency and comfort with less noise

Panasonic & ENERGY STAR, reinventing venting for healthy living

For over 25 years, Panasonic has developed innovative IAQ solutions that promote better indoor air quality and healthy home building. Each year we set the standard for whisper-quiet, energy efficient ventilation fans. On our mission to help traditional builders meet local codes, we’re helping green builders design beyond code and comply with the nation’s strictest green building standards, including CA Title 24, LEED, CALGreen and ENERGY STAR.

An ENERGY STAR® partner since 2010 with a proven long-term commitment to energy efficiency, Panasonic plays an active role supporting future improvements to ENERGY STAR ventilation products.  At the same time, we’re continually improving our IAQ solutions to exceed standards for healthy, eco-friendly homes.

Contrary to popular belief, all ventilation fans are not the same. Testing by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory shows nearly half of all installed fans fail the required airflow standards outlined in ASHRAE 62.2.

Not only do Panasonic ventilation fans meet strict criteria set by the EPA, our fans are engineered to perform beyond the minimum 0.1” and 0.25” static pressure benchmarks. All Panasonic ECM-motored fans are tested to overcome static pressure at the 0.375” level more common on typical installations.

Highest ENERGY STAR accolades for leadership in sustainability

ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Sustained Excellence Award represents the program’s highest honor. The EPA presents the Sustained Excellence Award to partners that have earned Partner of the Year for at least two consecutive years, continually demonstrate product innovation, and exceed qualifying criteria.
