Bathroom Extractor Fans
An extractor fan is typically installed in the bathroom or laundry area. With the right ventilation in place, you can breathe in fresh air that circulates in your home, particularly, in your bathroom. Every bathroom requires functional and performance oriented ventilation systems that give you a comforting experience during your shower. These fans reduce potential damage to walls and ceilings from smoke and condensation. The right air flow system in bathrooms helps defrayal of bacteria, odour and other contaminants. These fans also keep smoke damage to walls and ceilings to a minimum.
Our vast range of ventilation systems comprises of exhaust fans, air conditioners, centralised system and various ancillary elements or accessories, vital in circulating fresh air, ebbing down mildew and mould.
Exhaust fans can be installed in a window, on the wall, in ceilings or in the attic area. Inline fans are mounted inside the ducting and typically fitted in the attic or roof space, above the bathroom. The benefits of such a placement means reduced noise levels and can come with powerful motors which is generally not found in ceiling or wall mounted models. Those that are suspended from the roof or ceiling are called Ceiling fans while wall hung ones are fitted on the bathroom wall.
Installing one of these fans is easy, with few pointers in mind. When fitting an extractor fan from the ceiling, you need to be careful about insulation and need to leave the insulation box open. Install the fan in a window or wall and as far as possible from the source of air flow. In the bathroom, place the fan out of reach to avoid accidental touching by those using the bath or shower. Importantly, it must be away from any water so that water doesn’t splash on it, so there is no chance of an electric shock.
Types of Fans
Axial Fans – These types will circulate air over short distances only. An axial fan causes increased pressure of the air flowing through it forcing the air movement axially out or linearly. The design priorities lie in the number of blades and the design of each blade.
Centrifugal Fans – These move air over greater distances using rotating impellers that increase the speed and volume of the air. Centrifugal fans use the kinetic energy of the impellers to build air volume, moving against the resistance created by ducts, dampers and other components. Centrifugal fans cause radial displacement of air and change the direction of the airflow.
Humidistat Controls – These are designed to control relative humidity in a space. Humidistat controls automatically turn the fan on as humidity rises and off again as the humidity levels drop. Its ability to measure the humidity 24 hours a day, retards mould formation and keeps condensation issues away.
Low Voltage Fans – These are made for use in bathrooms and areas with high moisture. Regulations require that only equipment below 12 Volts is acceptable in close range of bath tub, shower, basin or a wet body using the bath or shower.
