If you’re thinking about installing an extractor fan in your bathroom, it can be hard to know where to start. There are lots of different types of fans out there and each one has its own benefits and drawbacks.

To help you make the right choice, we’ve put together this guide on extractor fans!

Types of Electrical Extractor Fans

Centrifugal fans: These are typically used for large rooms. They have blades that rotate in a circular motion and push air outwards in all directions.

Axial fans – These work by blowing air through a central shaft or tube at high speed. These fans are often used in kitchens because they’re efficient at removing smells and smoke without making much noise.

In-line extractor fans – These work by extracting stale air and moisture from a room, and then venting it outside. These fans are typically installed in the ductwork, and are connected to a vent or grille. When the fan is turned on, it creates negative pressure within the ductwork, which draws the air from the room.

Still unsure of which extractor fan best suits your needs? We usually install either axial or in-line fans, the choice is dependent on budget and loft space. The cost of either fan varies by the quality and features of the product, although an in-line standard model will set you back roughly £40 + VAT before labour, and an axial model is half the price of that.
