Which bathroom extractor fan

Mechanical Extract Ventilation – MEV

MEV refers to extract units which simply expel stale air (continuously). Operating at low flow rates of between 50m3/hr and 65m/hr MEV units keep air flowing through a room or building, acting rather like a small window. This is known as Trickle. Some MEV units can switch to a more powerful setting – up to 80m3/hr for example, at times of specific demand.

This is known as Boost.

Bathroom Extractor Fans

Bathroom extractor fan or shower extractor fan ventilation within your bathroom is not only desirable, it is essential to prevent problems caused by condensation or moisture. When it comes to having a fully functional bathroom an extractor fan is a must have. Extractor fans in bathrooms are used to draw excess water vapour and condensation out. Drawing this excess moisture from your bathroom can also prevent damp from occurring helping you save money in repairs in the future.

The most common fans fitted in bathrooms are in the celling which removes the moisture to outside through ducting.
