Electrical Question

Reasonable price bathroom extractor fan

Hello, we have a very condensation prone flat, one of the issues we have been told to get to help is a more powerful bathroom extractor fan (currently a small Manrose which does not seem to do much).

I see the Kair KHRV150/12rh has been recommended before, but the cheapest I can find is about £336, I was also recommended Envirowise fans via Timberwise but can't find them on the internet to buy or anything similar (Energysaver sensamatic?) that doesn't have a pull cord, becuase as it's a very high ceiling that would not work and we don't really want to have another switch fitted, would prefer fan with an integrated humidity sensor that comes on when needed and boosts when needed.

Can anyone recommend a more reasonably priced fan that you think would still be good? Or any brands that are sort of mid price? It's a tiny bathroom and no window so the fan is the only way to extract steam.

Many thanks

Your best bet is to look at some of the higher specification Vent Axia models. A lot of these have two speeds and a trickle option as well as a humidistat. see links below

It's all based on the volume area of your room. A 6" high volume extractor will do the job. In-line (so you only see the grill) or wall mounted. A reputable wholesaler will give idea's on which make. I wouldn't pay more than £150. This will suffice. http://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Products/SLTD500SILENT.html
