Bathroom Exhaust Fan Types

There are many different types of exhaust fans on the market. Bathrooms need an exhaust fan to eliminate the moisture produced by showers or baths. The exhaust fan improves the air circulation in the bathroom, and it also helps with regulating temperature and preventing mould growth. Within a toilet space, you can install a toilet exhaust fan to remove odours and improve air quality. When deciding on the type of exhaust fan you’d like, remember to choose an appropriate size that will allow at least 10 air changes per hour.

Here at Finnley Electrical, we have experience installing popular brands, including IXL Tastic, and Arlec.

Ceiling exhaust fan

The exhaust fan is affixed to the ceiling and will remove any air or moisture upwards. This air can be sent to an exterior roof cavity or outdoors. Ceiling-mounted bathroom exhaust fans are perhaps the most common type of bathroom exhaust fan. They’re reliable and effective, and come in both ducted and non-ducted models.

Inline exhaust fan

An inline exhaust fan is similar to a ceiling-mounted fan, but rather than being affixed to the ceiling it is installed in the ductwork itself. Inline fans are perfect for long or complex duct runs where a regular ceiling-mounted fan just wouldn’t be practical. They can also be used in combination with other fans to create a ‘daisy chain’ ventilation system.

Window exhaust fan

If you live in an apartment or unit where roof and wall space is limited, you may want to consider installing an exhaust fan through the window. This type of fan has two sections, one inside and one outside, that work together to ventilate the air. Some window exhaust fans also come with a reversing function, so they can be used to bring fresh air into the room as well.

Multi-Purpose exhaust fan

Multi-purpose exhaust fans allow for air to be extracted whilst also providing heating and lighting functions. IXL exhaust fans are a top pick for many people because they serve multiple purposes. Not only do they ventilate and circulate air, but they also include heaters and a light. A downside to this type of three-in-one bathroom exhaust fan is the added cost of installation and purchase.

Frequently Asked Questions About Bathroom Exhaust Fan Installation

Who installs bathroom exhaust fans?

The installation of a bathroom exhaust fan is not a difficult task, but one best left to a professional. An electrician will be able to ensure that the job is done correctly and safely.

The exhaust fan should be powerful enough to move the air through the ductwork and out of the house. Also, keep in mind the sones rating of the fan. This is a measure of how noisy the fan will be, with a higher number indicating a louder fan. If you want a quiet fan, look for one with a low sones rating.

Is 2.5 sones loud for a bathroom fan?

No, 2.5 sones is not considered to be a loud noise level for a bathroom exhaust fan. In fact, many people find that ceiling fans with a sones rating of 2.5 are just the right amount of noise for their needs.

Is 3 sones loud for a bathroom fan?

No, 3 sones is not considered loud for a bathroom fan. A fan with a 3.0 sone rating will produce approximately the same level of noise as a conversation between two people taking place right in front of each other.

What are the benefits of having a bathroom exhaust fan?

There are several benefits to having a bathroom exhaust fan installed in your home, including:

  • It will help to remove any moisture or steam from the air, which can help to prevent mould and mildew from forming.
  • It can help to regulate the temperature in the bathroom, making it more comfortable to use.
  • It will also help to improve the air circulation in the bathroom, making it a healthier space to be in.

Do bathroom exhaust fans need to be vented outside?

Yes, bathroom exhaust fans need to be vented outside in order to work properly. The fan will pull the air from the room and vent it out through the ductwork. If the ductwork is not installed correctly, or if there is a blockage, the fan will not be able to do its job properly.

Can I install a bathroom vent myself in Australia?

Exhaust systems must be installed by a certified electrician in your home or office to ensure they comply with Australian Standard (AS) 3666.1 for Microbial Control in Air Handling and Water Systems. The necessary flow rate and noise level will be dictated by this Standard. In addition, installation services need to follow AS 1668.2 ‘Mechanical ventilation for acceptable indoor air quality.’

Should bathroom exhaust fan be directly above shower?

The bathroom exhaust fan should be installed as close to the source of moisture as possible. In most cases, this will be above the shower. However, if you have a bathtub in the bathroom, the fan may need to be installed near that as well.

The key is to make sure that the fan is powerful enough to remove the moisture from the air and that it is vented properly so that the moist air is not recirculated back into the room.

Is it hard to install a bathroom exhaust fan?

Installing a bathroom exhaust fan is not a difficult task, but one best left to a professional to ensure that all work is compliant with relevant Australian Regulations and Standards such as AS 3666.1 for Microbial Control in Air Handling and Water Systems. As there is moisture and water in bathrooms, it’s best to have wiring and installation done by a licensed professional.

Do I need an electrician to install a bathroom exhaust fan?

Yes, within Australia you need an electrician to install a bathroom exhaust fan. Exhaust fans must be installed by a certified electrician to ensure the installation complies with Australian Standard (AS) 3666.1 for Microbial Control in Air Handling and Water Systems. The necessary flow rate and noise level will be dictated by this Standard. On top of this, installation services must follow AS 1668.2 ‘Mechanical ventilation for acceptable indoor air quality.’

How much does it cost to have someone install a bathroom fan?

The average cost of an exhaust fan installation is $180 to $600 depending on the type of installation. Exhaust fans come in many models, such as wall-mounted, ceiling-mounted, and window-mounted. An electrician will need to install the bathroom exhaust fan to ensure it complies with Australian Standards such as AS 1668.2 ‘Mechanical ventilation for acceptable indoor air quality.’
