Choosing a quiet or silent extractor fan

Choosing a quiet or silent extractor fan

Noise is always very difficult to advise on as sounds react differently in different environments. Also, people's interpretation of what is noisy and what is quiet can be very different. The only fixed way of correctly advising sound levels of extractor fans is to take an average sound pressure level across the listening spectrum at a distance. Sounds complicated but it allows for a universal figure to be used for all extractor fans.

To make life easy, we have devised a simple chart to allow you to make comparisons to normal every day sounds in different environments. This should give you a guide to choose quiet or silent extractor fans. Also, we have selected below our most popular low sound, low noise, quiet and silent extractor fans.
