What are the benefits of using a pull cord extractor fan?

Prevent condensation and mould

The main advantage of an extractor fan is their efficient air extraction. They remove excess moisture from the air, for instance, after a hot bath or shower. Lots of moisture in the air can lead to condensation and mould growth. An extractor fan can help to prevent this and keep the room fresh and clean.

Improve air quality

An extractor fan also removes odours, dust particles and allergens from the air, which is especially useful in a bathroom or kitchen setting, helping to maintain a pleasant environment in homes and offices. Pull cord extractor fans are only activated when needed which allows for efficient usage and energy savings.

Easy to operate

A pull cord extractor fan is easy to operate and is only activated when required with a quick pull. It can be adjusted to an accessible height and allows for immediate control of the fan in cases where swift air extraction is required.

The pull cord also prevents wet hands from touching an alternative switch function which in rare cases, can pose a fire or electrocution risk.

How do I choose the right kind of pull cord extractor fan for my home?

IP rating

An IP rating (short for 'Ingress Protection') is designed to protect electrical fixtures from water, moisture and dust. Here at YESSS Electrical, we stock a range of pull cord extractor fans with a rating of IP45 and suitable for installation in bathroom zones 1 and 2.

Noise level

Many extractor fans are designed to operate quietly with a high and effective flow rate - although a low level of noise is to be expected. Older fans are more likely to be noisy due to degradation of parts or build-up of dust and dirt, which can be a sign it needs cleaning or replacing.

Air extraction rate

Our range of pull cord extractor fans is available in a variety of extraction rates. Larger bathrooms often require higher rates of ventilation, as a higher extraction rate ensures faster removal of moisture from the area.

How do I determine the appropriate airflow rate for my extractor fan?

The right airflow rate for you depends on the size of the space you need to ventilate, as a higher extraction rate ensures quicker removal of moisture, steam, and odours from the air. As a general rule, bathroom extractor fans should provide an airflow rate of at least 15 litres per second (54 cubic metres per hour).

How do I keep my pull cord extractor fan working efficiently?

Taking good care of your extractor fan will ensure its reliability and efficiency for years to come. Regular cleaning of the fan cover and blades will prevent a build-up of dust and dirt that could inhibit extraction rate if left unchecked. It is also important to inspect the pull cord for any signs of damage or wear which is usually a good sign it's time for a repair or replacement.
