A bathroom can be the ideal setting for a domestic extractor fan, and in this blog we will be discussing some of the best bathroom fans currently on the market.
What Is An Extractor Fan?
An extractor fan does exactly what it says on the tin, a fan that extracts (removes) air that is moisture laden and other unwanted by-products within a particular space, and expels it outside.
Extractor fans are fitted usually as close as possible to the point of moisture release, most of these types of fans are axial and fitted to an exterior wall, or centrifugal and positioned in the middle of the ceiling (centrally).
An extractor fan works by using a motor powered propeller that spins at high speed to blow air outward. The vacuum effect this creates pulls any moisture or particles that are present through the fan to be released outside the premises.
