New Panasonic recessed vent fan/light--LED
Has anyone used or looked at the Panasonic Whisper Recessed Vent Fan/Lights? A CFL version has been around for some time, but Panasonic just came out with an LED version. It has one 14 watt GU24 base LED dimmable lamp with specs of 575 lumens, 3000 Kelvin, and CRI>80. The 575 lumens concerns me...isn't that about the equivalent of a 40 watt incandescent bulb? But it also doesn't make sense. I thought LED lamps in general produce more lumens per watt than this (41 lumens/watt). The CFL version incudes one 18 watt GU24 spiral CFL that provides 1380 lumens, and is supposedly equivalent to a 75 watt incandescent. That would be plenty of light considering other light sources. I was hoping to go with the LED technology, but 575 lumens, if equal to a 40 watt incandescent, seems inadequate.
The model number is FV-08VRE1. It is in the online Panasonic catalog and is available through some retailers (Amazon has a good price on it), but no reviews anywhere yet.
I've read everything I can find, and it appears that the lumens per watt for LEDs can vary, but this one seems low for LEDs. I've asked Panasonic to verify the specs but have not yet received a reply. If anyone knows anything about this vent fan/light, or the lumens per watt output of LEDs in general, please advise.
Thanks so much!
