Inline Bathroom Fan Installation

An inline bathroom fan has a motor situated inline and attached to the ducting so that the fan is not sitting directly on the ceiling. This type of fan is typically used in apartments where there is little space to vent in the ceiling space; making air ducting a must. Bathroom fans in apartments are usually high powered as the ducting lengths to get outside could be a considerable distance. But don’t confuse power with noise as these fans are generally very quiet.

Ducted Bathroom Fan Replacement

Ducted fans are mounted on the ceiling but have duct leading to a vent outside. A ducted fan is an air moving arrangement whereby a mechanical fan, which is a type of propeller, is mounted within a cylindrical shroud or duct.

Exhaust Fan Replacement & LED Light Installs

Bathrooms fans built with LED light installation is typically an option that is not presented by most electricians and is a fantastic arrangement to have in your bathroom. Not only do you save on space, but the fans also look great, offering a round or a square finish in a cool white light. All Electrics strongly recommends this option as they look stylish and are reasonably quiet considering how powerful they are with optional ducting. The light can also be switched on separately to the fan.

No matter what type of property you live in, All Electrics has a tailor-made solution for you. Enquire today with our master electricians for a fixed price quote on all of our bathroom fan installation services.

Where you might need exhaust fan installation in Melbourne?

Bathrooms are notoriously known to be wet and damp places, therefore it can usually be more prone to developing mould or decay due to lack of ventilation. This can cause a range of unhealthy bacterias to be living in your bathroom, and as such making it an unsafe place to be.  This can also damage paint and tiling in the bathroom, therefore making a ceiling fan an essential piece of ventilation in the bathroom.

Frequently Asked Bathroom Fan Installation Questions

What is the average lifespan of a bathroom exhaust fan?

The average lifespan of a bathroom exhaust fan ranges from 9 to 15 years. However, a lot depends on the quality of the bathroom exhaust, the manufacturer and the way that it gets used.

Usually, after ten years, the performance of the bathroom exhaust fans starts declining. There can be multiple reasons for this –

  • Lack of regular cleaning: When dust accumulates on the parts of the exhaust fan, it makes the operation less efficient and noisier.
  • Overworked motor: If you leave your bathroom exhaust fan running continuously, your motor will give out earlier than usual. 
  • Electrical issues: These could also cause your bathroom exhaust fan to malfunction.
How do you decide which type of exhaust fan to select?

To select an exhaust fan for your bathroom, you need to take into account the area of the bathroom and the frequency that air gets replaced. Bathrooms steam quickly, so it’s good to find an exhaust fan that is able to replace the air 20 times (or more) in an hour. 

This is represented as cubic metres of air per hour. To find the right exhaust fan, you’d have to calculate how many cubic metres your room is (length x breadth x height). Multiply that figure by 20, and you’ll get an idea about the ideal exhaust fan for your bathroom.

Alternatively, you can just enquire with an expert like our team at All Electrics and we’ll take care of all the complex calculations for you to recommend a solution.

How do you clean a bathroom fan?

It’s a good idea to thoroughly clean your bathroom exhaust fan every six months as moisture can penetrate and cause your exhaust fan’s metal to rust. For thorough cleaning, you must remove the vent cover and motor assembly which will allow you to clean any dust and buildup.

Bathrooms are used regularly, and the build-up of dirt and moisture can damage the exhaust fan parts, leading to motor burnout in some cases. This hazard can be easily prevented with frequent exhaust fan cleaning. For this, you need a few simple tools like dish soap, a microfiber cloth, sponge, screwdriver, soft-bristled brush, stepladder and a vacuum. 

Start by turning off the power from the circuit breakers, and vacuum the cover if required. Remove the vent cover and wash it. Follow this by removing the motor assembly unit. Clean the motor assembly thoroughly with a microfiber cloth and a soft-bristled brush. Finally, clean the fan housing and reinstall the motor and vent cover.

What happens if you leave the bathroom fan running for too long?

If you accidentally leave your exhaust fan unit running for an extended period, it can seriously damage your exhaust fan motor. Ideally, you should switch off the bathroom exhaust fan 30 minutes after use and once you have left the bathroom.

Can you install an exhaust fan in an attic?

Exhaust fans can be installed in the attic to allow for proper ventilation. 

When the weather gets warmer, hot air starts building up throughout you entire home. If your attic is well insulated, this also causes additional heat where heat rises throughout your home. This is because your entire house absorbs heat, which radiates to the attic space. 

For making your house cooler, this hot air needs a passage to escape. An attic exhaust fan can be just the thing you need to provide proper ventilation in the attic. It allows for the release of heat build-up, allowing you to save more money on cooling your home.

What is the standard size of a bathroom exhaust fan?

The standard size of a bathroom exhaust fan is measured in CFM or cubic feet per minute. This is the fan’s ability to move air throughout the room. If you have a bigger bathroom, you would require an exhaust fan with a higher CFM rating, and similarly, for a smaller bathroom, a lower CFM rating would be fine.

If you want to figure out the right exhaust fan size for the bathroom, first, calculate the area of the bathroom. This is done by multiplying the height, length and width of your bathroom. After you have an idea about the size of the bathroom, you can calculate the minimum CFM rating that your exhaust fan should have. The simple formula for this is –

Bathroom Size x 0.13 = Minimum CFM Rating  

Alternatively, give us a call and we can assess and install the fan for you.
