Vent-Axia ACM100T W In-Line Bathroom Extractor Fan
Best Inline Fan
This is the second one of these fans I have bought the first for the family bathroom fitted a couple of months ago and working great and this one for the ensuite, I wanted to be sure it did the job before getting another.
The original fan was part of a kit which made a lot of noise and vibration without shifting much steam/air .
The Vent axia is great, easy to fit, very quiet and easily moves the steam from the bathroom ducted about 7 metres to the outside.
It is quite expensive but it does the job.

Replacement extractor fan
Had to replace a horrible dangerous retail fan that had expired for a decent one and decided on Vent Axia as its a good make. The electrics are housed on the top to prevent any possibility of dampness getting in.
We decided to screw the housing to a loft board and used foam underneath to reduce vibration. For added stability we also lightly screwed it into the joists. We set this one up to use the light switch to turn on and set for 5 mins after turned off. This is very powerful and the only noise we get is the air going out and has very little vibration.
Only thing I would say is if your not sure on the wiring then ask a pro. We did have to get some long 400 long cable ties but it was worth it to insure it keeps dry.

2nd purchase - very good fan
2nd time i've bought of these, this time to replace a cheap fan builders installed a year ago that has already failed. Previously installed one in an ensuite that has worked fine.
Easy to install in retrofit position.
ONLY problem was VA had stuck sticker showing airflow direction on the wrong side of fan which prompted a bit of head scratching once installed!
Fortunately the good design is such that it was a 1 minute job to switch around within the mounts without having to remove and reattach the ducting.

Powerful bathroom extractor
Got this to replace extractor in ensuite after we got issues with condensation with new power shower. Found numerous issues with old set up least of all a 6 meter run to the vent with use of standard vent ducting leading to 2 litres of water being drained from old ducting after bathroom refurb.
Got the vent-axia in-line extractor & insulated ducting.
Easy to install as can be in a loft space. Good mass flow/extraction, bathroom mirror still useable after showering.
There was some evidence of water leakage around the join on the vent inlet spigot after a week or so but were talking a couple of drips in the middle of a cold winters day.
Please with extraction rate. Time will tell on reliability, 3* (average) as not sure on this point as yet.
