Manrose Shower Light & Extractor Fan Kit Chrome 100mm
Shower and light unit
Excellent product. It is a very quiet extractor if mounted correctly. Because it is quiet, it is more likely to be left on whereas a lot of extractors are too noisy and therefore get turned off with subsequent problems of condensation and water damage. The light is good and comes with a tungsten colour temperature bulb which may be an issue if you have daylight lamps elsewhere in the room. I have put 3 stars for reliability but that is a guess as it hasn't been in long enough to know

Works extremely well to extract from a power shower

Good reliable extractor light
This extractor light is a great product for the bathroom installer, well priced and easy to fit.
Only a couple of problems, the terminals of light transformer are tiny and a real pain to connect. Don't mount the fan unit on the ceiling joists as it's not the quietest and will reverberate, so mount it on a heavy board or better still masonry.

Does The Job
Got this as the bathroom tended to get a bit steamy, and it was good value with a decent length hose. Wiring was simple, just take the time to read the instructions, and note which bits apply to this product. Prepared most of it downstairs then popped up into the loft to fit.
It's obviously not as powerful as some of the fans on here, but for the price it was never going to be, but with several minutes over-run on the timer it easily clears the air. Was surprised at how quiet it is, can hear a low whooshing sound when in the bathroom, but nothing from outside the bathroom, and nothing coming out of the loft, which is a bonus as the fan's right above my daughter's bedroom.
I'd guessed at the timer setting using the instructions as a guide, but should have tested it before fitting the fan and hose, as it's not really possible to adjust it once everything's fitted. Ended up with about 9 minutes instead of the 5 I was aiming for, but as it's so quiet it's not a problem at all.
I've replaced all my halogen bulbs with LEDs, and this fitting worked fine with the ones I have, so didn't need to fork out for the much more expensive option Manrose do with the LED included.
All in all seems like a good buy. Not outstanding, but good.
