Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vent Axia dual speed extractor We have now had this unit (with a heat exchanger fitted in the pipe through the wall) in operation for about eight years. The low power, slow-speed trickle operation is almost imperceptibly quiet. The high-speed, power vent operation is rather more noisy but it is effective. The device does need to be removed periodically and cleaned and washed to remove the build up of skin dust etc. In contrast to our immediate neighbours, who now have a chronic problem of condensation and black mould owing to the lack of ventilation, we have never had any such issues.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Impressed yet disappointed This extractor in particular is very quiet but powerful and fit to serve internal bathrooms with variable air extraction connected to long vent ducting. My ducting stretches over 4 metres. Do not fit and use this product before or during remodelling. Any dust from wood to plasterboard dust may affect you unit. Unfortunately, after medium or even light works, such as sanding walls and wood or remodelling in the bathroom or an unconnected room, my extractors (of which I have owned two of this model) developed a noisy action. In my opinion, it is as if dust to some degree passes through the filter and together with moisture, settles on moving parts, be it bearings or seals or other moving parts and serves to unbalance the centrifuge. The result of having extraction turned on in a dustier environment is that both of my Vent-Axia Solo Plus HT Centrifugal Bathroom Extractors with Humidistat/Timer became noisier to the point that they developed a rattle. I have owned and used two of these units and both developed this same reaction to light, indirect building dust. My recommendation is that it is a very good extractor for all types of bathroom spaces but it should never be exposed to more than general household dust and/with moisture.

Version 427478 vs 427479

Please what is the difference between 427278, 427479 and the new generation versions with B at the end of the product code?
Asked by: Flex7
Hello, The 427478 is a timer only fan. This type of fan would often wire to a light or remote switch. The fan would come on/boost with the switch and then overrun for a set time once the switch has been turned off. The 427479 is a timer and humidity sensor fan. The timer on this unit will operate exactly the same however this unit has a humidity sensor which will automatically boost the unit if the space becomes humid. Thank you

It states it can be wall or ceiling mounted but in the instructions it says pull cord versions cannot be installed on the ceiling? Also it isn't clear why the pull cord is needed if it has a switched live? Finally- can the cord be removed?

Asked by: Pcpc1988
The Solo Plus range can be wall & ceiling mounted. The pullcord is a manual overide however advise this is removed when mounted in the ceiling as will be difficult to operate. It will still function from the inbuilt humidity sensor or can be wired to a switch.

Is this a 12V or 230V fan?

The description states that this is a 12V fan, but the part number is for a 230V device. Which is correct, please?

Is this switched on / operated via the pull cord fitted or the bathroom light switch?
