Extractor fans are a must-have for any bathroom, as they effectively draw out moisture and odors, improving the overall air quality.
Installing an extractor fan isn't just a good idea - it's often a requirement in many building codes for new construction or major bathroom renovations.
There are two main types of extractor fans to choose from: the inline fan, which is mounted in the loft space and ducted through the roof or soffit, and the wall-mounted fan, which has an integral fan ducted through the wall.
For en-suite installations, it's a good idea to opt for a fan that operates at a lower decibel level to minimise noise.
You'll also find ceiling extractor fans with built-in LED lights, making them convenient for use in shower enclosures.
Lighting regulations apply to domestic installations, so it's crucial to ensure compliance with current IEE building regulations.
We always recommend consulting with a qualified Part P registered electrician to ensure your extractor fan installation meets all safety standards.
