We have previously introduced the Airflow QuietAir range as the Most Quiet Extractor Fan for domestic use, or the QuietAir Whisper Quiet Ventilation fan, and this is true: The Airflow QuietAir range of domestic extractor fans are “virtually silent” and they also use a small amount of energy(energy saving silent extractor fans range). Unlike most of other bathroom/toilet stale air extractor fans which are wired to the light circuit so that they are activated when someone turns the light on, the QuietAir Eco Start technology “delays” the activation of the fan for at least 2 minutes after detecting the occupation of the room(for reducing the consumption of energy especially during the night visits to the bathroom). You will also notice that when the Airflow QuietAir fan is on, the electricity meter will not indicate a high power consumption – it uses only 5W, much more efficient than most of the other similar extractor fans. Not only energy saving – but the design is also very stylish, with a discreet, unobtrusive, clip on, wipe clean cover that blends harmoniously with existing decor in your home/office.
As for the Airflow QuietAir fan life – this fan will last for up to 40.000 hours – since this range uses a ball bearing motor, it has an extended fan life. And if you need a reliable extractor fan(for the long run) with a low level maintenance, the QuietAir range is what you need(the whole life costs are very reduced, making this fan ideal for both social housing and home installations). Since neither having an inadequate ventilation nor an over-ventilating a room / the bathroom / the toilet helps prevent the extracting of the stale air, the removing of the moisture, or the prevention of the condensation, the Airflow QuietAir fans have the two-speed mode feature. You can choose whether to have an air flow rate of 75 m3/hr or 90 m3/hr – at the installation – making the fan able to meet the need of extracting air either in larger washrooms or smaller(comparatively) bathrooms. Actually, there are several models / options you can have in this range:
- The Airflow QuietAir Axial Fan, Low Energy Quiet Extractor Fan ~ the basic model, no delay, 2 speeds, the Airflow QT100B;
- The Airflow QuietAir Axial Fan, Low Energy Quiet Extractor Fan ~ the model with Eco start, single speed, adjustable humidity and timer, the Airflow QT100HT;
- The Airflow QuietAir Axial Fan, Low Energy Quiet Extractor Fan ~ the model with Eco start, two speed, PIR – motion sensor, adjustable timer, the Airflow QT100PIR;
- The Airflow QuietAir Axial Fan, Low Energy Quiet Extractor Fan ~ the model with Eco start, 2 speeds, and adjustable timer, the Airflow Quietair QT100T.
Standing out from most other axial extractor fans, the QuietAir fans also incorporate a new, high efficiency impeller specially designed to work in combination with the aerodynamic flow straighter supplied to provide greater pressure development than other similar axial extractor fans. This allows the Airflow QuietAir range to deliver up to 60 m3 per hour (16.6 l/sec) against 31 Pascals pressure through longer lengths of 100mm diameter rigid ducting including 90O bends, while maintaining the minimum installed performance quoted in the Building Regulations, Approved Document F.
Besides the air-extracting function, the silent QuietAir fans also include the Room Refresh function – ideal for the rooms that are not used regularly. By using the Interval Timer, you can activate the fan for the duration of the time setting(every 4, 8, 12 or 24 hours). Some of the locations that benefit from this function are the student accomodations, the public washrooms, the internal bathrooms(in sheltered housing and care homes), the hotel rooms, etc. This function of planned ventilation in the room especially helps with reducing the dampness, the extracting the odours/stale air and mustiness, and maintain a refreshed & healthier atmosphere in that specific room.
Since these extractor fans are designed to be used in the wet zones in the bathrooms, en-suites or even shower rooms, the electronics wihin the Aiflow QuietAir are fully isolated and the extractor fan is IP45 protected(also protected by an MCB in accordance with the latest IEE wiring regulations). If you want more from your fan, you can choose either the Basic Switching Model or the version with Adjustable Timer, the Humidity and Timer option, or the Motion sensing with Timer – all these come with wall kits and complementary accessories. And to help you close the deal and choose the Airflow QuietAir range, you have a 3 year warranty on all the QuietAir range of extractor fans – for at least a three year insurance that you will have an ultra energy efficient ventilation!
