Can anybody help please?
I need to get a fan fitted in the bathroom, but am confused about which might be the best for my needs.
I have an 8.5Kw electric shower fitted over the bath in a 2.1 x 2.3m (approx. 9cu. m) bathroom. With teenagers who do a lot of sport, it's used at least 4/5 times a day, often for long periods, and as the room is almost all tiled the condensation is horrendous.
There was a cheap old fan fitted in the ceiling when I moved in, but it doesn't do anything (it looks like it was meant to go through the external wall because the pull cord comes out of the side & hangs down).
It's not in a good position either, so I don't want to put a proper ceiling fan in.
I've looked on the net, and am pretty sure the solution is to put in a low voltage fan mounted above the shower, but can't fathom out which one would be most suitable.
I have an electrician who will fit it, but I thought Id get it myself, because cost is a BIG factor, and I want to make sure it does the job.
As far as I can see, my best bet would seem to be the XpelairLV100pc.
Your sparky will recommend the right one for the job and frankly you might as well let him supply it as well - he can prolly get it cheaper than you in any event. I would suggest that you don't need a £ 100 fan if cost is an issue as long as its got a humidistat and a timer. I don't see the point of the PIR "bell/whistle" TBH.
