The Best Bathroom Extractor Fans

But not all extractor fans were created equal. We show you the five that our customers rate the highest, helping you make the right decision when it comes to choosing one for your next job.

Which extractor fan is right for your client?

Choosing the right fan for the right job takes more than just picking a finish - you need to think about the air extraction rate, the noise, and how much space it will take up.

The average domestic extractor fan extracts 21 litres of air per second, or 75.6 m3/hr. While this is fine for most basic shower rooms, for larger commercial units or homes with multiple occupants, you might need to consider something capable of more. You should also look to see if the fan comes with an integrated humidistat, as this could help prevent moisture build up in bathrooms that are regularly in use.

The noise extractor fans make is also important. Some older models will hum away long after the bathroom is empty, potentially keeping occupants awake at night while using excessive energy.

Newer brands are designed to only run when necessary and come with built-in noise reduction technology that prevents both internal and external sounds from becoming a problem.

Finally, check the room you’re looking to install the product in, some larger units might not be practical in tight spaces or buildings with thin walls and floors, and smaller units may not be as effective in larger rooms.



If you’re in the market for a bathroom extractor fan, look no further. We stock units from brands known across the trade world, guaranteeing you excellent performance for a fair price. Whether you opt for one of our recommendations or a different model that better suits your needs, we’ve got you covered.
