Extractor fans are built-in fans that are used to draw in air and expel or remove moisture, smoke, fumes, smells, and other airborne particles out of a given space. Often, rooms or spaces with little or poor circulation, such as bathrooms, storage closets, and kitchens, are fitted with a vent fan to keep air moving and prevent the accumulation of dust or condensation.
RS Components carries a large selection of extractor fans and their parts, including ceiling extractor fans, kitchen extractor fans, bathroom extractor fans, and exhaust fans from leading suppliers such as Vent-Axia, Unelevent, and Xplier. Fans are measured by airflow in m³/h (cubic meters per hour), with lower airflow suitable for homes and small rooms, and greater airflow suitable for larger, more open spaces.
RS has the right size, style, and power fan for any situation that your facility, office, or home might require.
One of the primary uses for an exhaust fan is in the bathroom. Because bathrooms are only occupied for a short period of time, they are usually not fitted with a constant airflow generator like air conditioning or central air vents. Instead, builders will install exhaust fans for the bathroom to remove excess moisture and odors that build up after using the fixtures such as a shower or toilet.
Without a proper bathroom extractor fan, there is an increased chance that the built-up condensation forms mold or rot.
Wall-mounted fans are an efficient and quiet solution for closed spaces such as closets, kitchens, and bathrooms. Instead of blowing air around like a box or floor fan, they instead draw air in and expel it outside or into a vent. Wall-mounted fans are great for rooms without an openable window, and since most are low-power, they can run all day.
