Best bathroom extractor
25-Dec-2008
By
, South Devon
"The Vent Axia Silhouette range of 100mm extractor fans
are probably the neatest, easiest to fit and quietest units
on the market. When installed into a ceiling the shallowness
of the unit makes it very discreet and it does not rumble, the timer version is easily adjustable. I would strongly recomend both the standard and timer versions.

I am a fan of this fan
06-Nov-2008
By
, York
"This replaced an old fan that had packed in. This pulls harder than the last one ever did and clears the steam from our bathroom in record time. Though it is not that loud, I would not call it quiet - quiet fans never worked that well in my experience anyway as moving large volumes of air is a noisy business.
Pros: Good quality, Powerful(for 100mm fan), Thin profile.
Cons: None really.
It is just a shame screwfix dont stock the model with the condensation sensor built in."

Best bathroom fan with timer

Good fan in regular use
17-Jan-2013
By
, Cambridge
"Replacement for old bathroom fan. Went for Vent-Axia because it had a higher extraction rate than others of similar size. However, the quid pro quo is that it is noisier than my other Xpelair fans, which can get annoying with the 15min over-run. Having siad this is does the job well. Easy to fit. Electricity needs to enter top right corner."

backdraft shutter
28-Dec-2011
By
, clitheroe
"i agree with most comments about this fan.
the back draft shutter does make a noise when closing especially on a windy night , which can wake you up especially for us in a bungalow if we do not pull to the bathroom door.

Nice looking fan
08-Jun-2011

"Slim profile and useful to have the backdraft shutter.
1st fan had a faulty timer which would not run for less that 30 minutes.
Second fan seems ok so far - would use again."

Good low-profile extractor fan
06-Jul-2009
By
, Cambridge
"This is a nice neat fan with a good extraction performance, although it is not as quiet as some. The only problem I have found is with the backdraft prevention vanes, which tend to bind to the inside of the ducting causing them not to open properly. So, it is usually better not to fit the vane assembly, but to make other arrangements for backdraft prevention."

Very average fan
27-Jun-2011

"I bought this bathroom fan to replace a ten year old Manrose and whilst it's seems well made and stylish I was very disappointed to discover it's twice as noisey as the Manrose. Wish I'd left the old one in!"

Noisy fan
21-Aug-2012
By
, Southampton
"We had 3 of these fitted in a new house. I have just replaced al three. Nicely built, very good and extracting - but like a 747 on take off. Could hear any of the fans through the fairly large house. For the price I would expect better noise levels. If you are partially deaf - perfect. If not then I couldn't recommend this fan I'm afraid."

"Had to replace this one as it was so noisy. Used an Icon 15 fan in the end (quietest wall mounted ones i've fitted). Might have just been a bad fan but i doubt it. Will be returning for a refund."

Overrun
13-May-2011
By
, Birmingham
"I had a problem with a client whose fan occasionally continued to overrun indefinitely unless manually switched off using the isolator. Vent Axia's technical man says:
From time to time we do get problems with timer fans tripping by an induced current. This is usually caused by low energy lighting, as you can see we have tried to suppress the voltage to prevent this happening but this would appear not to have worked in your case.
I did have a guy recently who fitted a 1 microfarad capacitor rated at 275 Vac between the switch live and the neutral and this has resolved his problem. The only other thing i could suggest would be changing the light bulb or fitting to a standard fitting.
I suggested that this was surely a problem for the fan even if not caused by the fan but we failed to agree."
