Vent-Axia 100T W Axial Bathroom Timer Extractor Fan
NOT SILENT - NOT EVEN QUIET
I bought this product as it is a good brand, it had good reviews and it was called "silent fan". But it is not silent. It isn't even quiet.
I do have it on the high speed setting, but it is called "silent fan" and it is very noisy. I can only presume that all the reviewers who have said it is quiet have got it on the low speed setting (which I haven't tried, as I want the better extract rate).
It ventilates well, as you would expect, but it is noisy, despite being called "silent fan".
If it was quiet, it would be worth the money. It isn't, so it isn't!! If you want a fast fan that is quiet, look elsewhere, hence not recommending the product.
Screwfix service impeccable as usual - no qualms about that.
I had to put a value for reliability, but it has only been in 2 days, so can't really answer that.

Thank you Fans
Just had my bathroom done up, searched everywhere for a reasonably priced silent with timer fan. Stumbled on this one by accident...very pleased I did ! Fits the bill perfectly!

The fan is truly exceptional, it is as near silent as you would need on the slower setting, but it does get louder when increasing the speed.
The design is far better than others i have installed, the face cowling insures that all of the steam that has risen is removed at a much quicker rate.
It is very simple to install with easy access to the electronics board.
Excellent product that i would recommend and use again.

I'm a fan already!
Stylish looking extractor. Easy to install. Good cable grommet provided for ceiling mounting.
This fan is pre-wired on slow-speed and is almost silent; just as the name says. When wired on high speed the fan is noticeably noisier but still quieter than many other fans I've installed. Highly recommended.
