Wall Fan or Ceiling Fan?
What better way to clear the air than with extractor fans from Bathroom City. Featuring a diverse range of styles, sizes and brands, our bathroom ventilation products are second to none. With an accommodating range of wall fans and ceiling fans that come with varying extraction rates and decibel levels, we’re confident that we have something for you.
One of the main decisions you need to make when purchasing ventilation is where you want your extractor fan positioned. Where your fan is positioned will be predominantly down to your bathroom layout. As a rule of thumb, we recommend positioning your fan near your shower enclosure as this is the area where it is most likely to be humid.
Whether you position your extractor fan on the ceiling or wall is down to personal preference, but remember to position it where you believe it will be most effective.
Another variable that can change depending on your bathroom size is the extraction rate of your fan. To generalise, the larger the bathroom you are looking to ventilate, the higher the extractor rate necessary to do it. On the contrary, smaller bathrooms require less power.
The measurement levels for extractor fans are based m3/hr, or to put it simply, metre cubed per hour. One thing that must be mentioned is that size isn’t the only variable that affects what strength of extractor fan is required. The other is how busy your bathroom is; the busier the bathroom, the more power required to demystify it. Likewise, the sparser the bathroom, the lower-powered extractor fan required.
The noise level the extractor fan makes is also significant. The ideal situation is to have a high extraction level with a low decibel level.
Extractor Fans Style Options
Perhaps the most interesting aspect of an extractor fan purchase is choosing its style. Just like any other bathroom accessory, the extractor fan needs to be congruent with the bathroom that surrounds it. The key to choosing the right type of extractor fan is based around creating a unified bathroom image. Therefore, if your bathroom consists of a more traditional theme, a conventional bathroom vent fan is perhaps your best option. On the contrary, if your bathroom is modern and minimal, then a modern fan is definitely going to be more suited to your needs. Choosing what you need isn’t as straight forward as it should be. Which is why we have chosen 3 products to discuss in further detail
