Why you should get an electrician to replace your extractor fan

From hot showers to baths and running taps – bathrooms are usually the most humid rooms in your house. Without ventilation, steam and moisture will condensate on cold surfaces and leave the room damp. And over time, mould, mildew and rot will grow on tiles, window frames and plaster. So if your extractor fan is not working as it should, it’s best to replace it before damp sets in.

Your extractor fan works with electricity, so to protect you, your family and home, we recommend asking a Part P qualified electrician for help. Your electrician will first look at the installation area to make sure it’s suitable for your new fan. They’ll then switch off the energy supply, fit the extractor fan and secure the wiring. When everything is done, they’ll turn your power back on, test the fan and clean their work area before they head off.

Frequently Asked Questions

Extractor fans ventilate rooms so damp doesn't build up causing damage to tiles and walls.
The general rule of thumb is that you need at least 1 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) per square foot of room area. To work out the square footage of your bathroom, multiply the length by the width. For example, if your bathroom is 6 feet wide and 9 feet long, its square footage is 54. Therefore, it should have a fan rated for at least 54 ​CFM.
First try cleaning it to remove any mould. If it still doesn't work, that may be because of dust buildup, a problem with the wiring or a broken motor. If that's the case it will need to be replaced.
Turn off the power, remove the dust cover and soak it in soapy water. Meanwhile dust inside the unit. Scrub the cover with soapy water, let it dry then replace it.
