Extractor fans work by removing humid, stale air and pushing it out of your home, usually through ducting. Fresh air then takes the place of the removed air, ideally from an open window. There are various types of fans available in different sizes and shapes. Extractor fans can also come with smart features like a programmable timer and humidistat. Extractor fans can be installed in walls, ceilings, rooves, and windows. Large or very humid rooms may need more than one extractor fan.
Extractor fans are highly recommended in rooms where you are experiencing high levels of damp or mould, as mould can cause serious health repercussions if left unchecked. Firstly, mould can damage your tiles, grout, and even paintwork in extreme circumstances. But, if allowed to continue to grow, mould spores produce allergens and other irritants that can aggravate symptoms such as sneezing, coughing and skin rashes.
