Extractor fan

Low High
Extractor fan £100 £200

A bathroom extractor fan is a simple device that vents some of the damp air out of your bathroom to cut down on condensation. This can stop damp problems, as well as making it easier to see yourself in the mirror after your shower or bath. The fan runs off a small motor and the blades draw the air out of the room via a vent.

If you do not already have venting from your bathroom then your electrician will need to fit a vent to allow the air to exit the room and your home.They will then need to fit the extractor fan and attach it to a switch. In most cases the fan will be fitted to turn on when you switch on the bathroom light, although you can have a pull switch fitted so that you can turn it on independently.

In many cases you will be required by law to fit an extractor fan if you are having extensive work done in your bathroom Your electrician or bathroom fitter will be able to advise you. Most extractor fans are fairly standard units that cost less than £50, so the main cost of the job will be the electrician’s labour. This could be as little as an hour for a standard fitting to half a day or more if vents need to be fitted.
