Extractor Fan Installations in Essex
When sitting and installing a new extractor fan the following points should be considered:

  • Site the fan as far away as possible from the air inlet to the room
  • The fan should be sited as close as possible to the moisture source
  • Avoid installing close to heat sources to prolong motor life;

In bathrooms the fan must not be within reach of a person using the bath or shower and must conform to IET regulations

Where possible it is preferable to use a loft or ceiling void for ventilating shower rooms or bathrooms;
Where ducting runs through unheated areas it should be insulated to prevent condensation.
Ensure adequate air leakage into the rooms to provide replacement fresh air, this can be via undercut doors trickle vents in windows etc

Do not install extract fans in rooms where open flued appliances are sited.

Types of Extractor fan
There are five main types of extractor fan for various situations and requirements

STANDARD
This type of fan has its switching through a wall light or separate remote switch

Run on TIMER
This type of fan has a built-in adjustable time delay operated by the light switch and is usually used in bathroom applications.

PULLCORD
This type of fan has a built-in pull cord switch.

HUMIDITY Control
This type of fan has a built-in humidity sensor which operates the fan automatically when the humidity reaches a set point within the room; this is suited to a bathroom or kitchen application.

PIR Sensor
This type of fan is sensitive to movement, these fans switch on and off when a room is entered or vacated, and are very energy saving.

It's important to choose the correct fan with proper air movement capacity and with a silent operation, as well as to decide the right place to mount it.

The main function of a ceiling extractor fan is for the ventilation inside a bathroom or the kitchen of your home. Ceiling extractor fans are now very common.

Adequate air extraction for kitchens and bathrooms is a must to meet the current building regulations. These rooms are prone to condensation therefore moist air and odors must have a means of escape, the most simple and cost effective solution is an electrical extractor fan.

The appropriate size of fan is chosen according to the air flow rate required, which can vary according to room, e.g. a kitchen needs around 10–15 air changes an hour whilst a bathroom with a shower needs 15–20 air changes an hour.
Low voltage fans are most suitable for bathrooms and they can be mounted above showers with their own transformer.
