Extractor fan

For over 20 years, we have been experts in supplying fans and components for multi-level apartments, medium to high-density housing, rest homes, retirement villages, home building companies, light commercial projects, and the hydroponics industry.

Whether you're constructing anew or renovating a bathroom, it's crucial to factor in proper ventilation. Insufficient steam extraction can rapidly lead to mold, mildew, and a chilly, damp atmosphere on ceilings, sills, and walls.

Extractor fan is important

Extractor fans might not be the most captivating home feature, and they might not undergo drastic transformations, but these consistent components can significantly enhance your home’s ventilation. Positioned ideally in kitchens and bathrooms where odours and moisture accumulate, exhaust fans play a vital role. Nevertheless, spaces like garages and laundry rooms can also experience advantages from such fans.

The benefits of fan extraction are abundant, as outlined below. Extractor fans provide numerous advantages for your home, particularly when taking into account the NZ Healthy Homes compliance standards. The skilled electricians of the Trilect team have been serving Auckland and its surroundings since 1997, establishing us as the preferred option for both light commercial and residential exhaust fan installations. 

Air Quality

Extractor fans effectively remove odors, pollutants, and excess humidity from spaces like kitchens and bathrooms, helping maintain a fresher and healthier indoor environment.

Mold & Mildew Prevention

By swiftly eliminating steam and moisture, extractor fans hinder the growth of mold and mildew, which is essential for meeting the NZ Healthy Homes guidelines and preventing health hazards.


Proper ventilation prevents the accumulation of dampness, creating a more comfortable living space where cold and clammy conditions are minimized.


Extractor fans can aid in regulating indoor temperature and moisture levels, potentially reducing the need for excessive heating or cooling, leading to energy savings over time.

Guide to wall mounted extractor fan

Wall-mounted ventilation fans find common use in domestic settings, particularly in areas like bathrooms, kitchens, or laundry rooms.

Opting for a wall-mounted fan can be preferable when dealing with limited roof cavity space. The installation of a wall exhaust fan involves cutting a typically circular hole into the brickwork, through which the fan and external vent are fitted.

Typically, an extractor fan comprises an internal motor component connected to an external vent via ducting or tubing. Several factors should be taken into account during the installation of an extractor fan. For those replacing an existing unit, the wall fan must be removed and the hole size measured.

Additionally, measuring the wall’s depth is essential. When installing a new unit, ensuring the fan’s suitability based on the wall’s depth is important. Adequate provisions should be made to create a hole in the wall that accommodates the fan effectively.
