Hiring a tradesman for an extractor fan installation
In rooms that tend to have a lot of moisture, an extractor fan is required to keep it under control. Without an extractor fan, moisture in a room can eventually lead to problems such as damp and mould, which can cause a serious health risk as well as threaten your property. If you do not have an extractor fan, or need yours repaired, it is imperative for your property that you get it done straight away.

What do you need to know about extractor fan installation?
Unless you are planning to keep your windows open all year, winter included, then you will need to have an extractor fan installed in your bathroom. If you are worried about the cost, keep in mind that untreated damp, condensation and mould can lead to serious structural issues in a property, each of which will cost far more to repair than the price of installing a fan!
It is required by law that all new electrical installations are done in accordance with Building Regulations. This is another reason why you are better off hiring an experienced professional, as they will already be familiar with these rules. You should be given a signed-off certificate following the installation.
The cost of installing an extractor fan will depend on what you already have set up. A like for like replacement of a broken extractor fan is fairly simple and will usually cost between £150 and £250. An entirely new installation, on the other hand, will require your electrician to cut through the wall and install new ducting. The area will also need to be re-plastered and redecorated following the installation, which your electrician likely will not be able to do for you. For a new installation, you could expect to pay between £300 and £450.
