Wiring an extracion fan to a plug?

Postby Dmania » Fri Jun 12, 2020 12:15 pm

Hi guys, so I have converted my shed into an office but need ventilation. I bought an Xpelair VX100T, not knowing any better. It wants to be wired to the mains. Can I wire it to a UK plug? Bear in mind here I don't know the first thing about electrics really, but it appears I need some kind of step between the fan and plug?

Yes you can wire an extractor fan to a plug, but be sure to put a 3Amp fuse in the plug.
