A budget option, incorrectly sized or poorly installed exhaust fan can be extremely noisy so people avoid turning it on.

Here are some signs you may need to replace your existing exhaust fan or install a new one:

Things to Consider Before Replacing Your Extractor Fan

Select an Appropriate Style and Size

There are a wide selection of fans available in numerous styles and sizes, from standard 100mm compact to larger 150mm or larger. Fans are measured by the size of the exhaust duct needed not the visible foot print.  Inline fans are needed where the exhaust duct is longer than 4-5m with potentially two fans needed on longer exhaust runs. Positive airflow units as used in apartment blocks are another option. It is very important to choose the right fan size to ensure the safety and wellbeing of your loved ones. If your extractor fan which is too big it will increase your heating bill unnecessarily, while a smaller capacity fan will not adequately remove odour and moisture. At Martin Day Electricians Limited, our talented electricians in Leeds can help you find the right size and style extractor fan.

Wall Switches for Your New Exhaust Fan

How will you control the fan? Extractor fans do not need any new switches if they operate in unison with a light, have an integral pull cord or humidity sensor, they do require a separate control switch. All fans should have a fan isolation switch to facilitate maintenance. Ceiling mounted extractor fans with lights are quite popular. They are generally installed over a shower or bath to add extra lighting to brighten the room with the air being safely vented out through the loft or roof. Our qualified electrician in Leeds will let you know which type of extractor fan will suit your needs.

Deciding on Extra Features

Modern extractor fans come with unique features such as fan lights, accurate humidity sensors, occupancy sensors. Before purchasing a new extractor fan, you must decide whether you need extra features or not. Extractor fans which have humidity sensors, automatically switch off and on based on the humidity and moisture present in the room.
