I moved to the new condo and found that fan works loud.
The sound meter showed that the noise level during operation of central ventilation (without fan) is between 46 and 49 dB (it is the average data for 15 minutes with silence in all rooms). During the night the noise seems very "loud".
The installed fan is Épurair EP100 G (or EP100G2V (2 speed)). Based on the characteristic of Épurair EP100 G, the sones should be 0.8 (the fan is rated at 0.8 sone, which equals 32 dB).
Verification by the sound meter showed that the noise level of installed fan is between 46 and 49 dB. Sins an 1 sone is equivalent to 40 dB, I can assume that the noise level of Épurair EP100 G2V is around 1.15-1.2 sones. I do not understand this discrepancy (0.8 is in technical characteristics and 1.2 sones are in reality). That seems a bit loud, doesn't it?
May I ask you: which Panasonic model will be fit for replacement of EP100G2V (2 speed)? 2 speed, because the fan is making airflow for the whole condo (breaker for slow speed is in the room), but for using the bathroom is another breaker in the bathroom who makes a speed up.
I found one Panasonic model: Panasonic FV-08-11VF5 Whisperfit EZ Retrofit fan. Is it good for change old one(Épurair EP100 G2V).
