Pros: Easy to install, Looks good, Value for money, Well Made
I bought this to replace an existing fan which allowed a lot of wind through and was consequently noisy. I didn't expect it to completely solve the noise as some of it comes from the external vent which is not part of this assembly. Installation was quite easy although the screw fixings did not happen to match those of the old fan. There is an excellent rubber seal provided to go between the wall and the base plate. The wiring method is much better than I have seen before in that all the connections are made to the base plate which can then remain permanently on the wall. The motor assembly and top cover then plug into a connector automatically when applied to the base plate. This means that you don't have to disconnect any wiring in order to clean or maintain the fan. Clever design! In use the fan does exactly what it's supposed to. The vents open about a minute after the fan starts and close after the fan stops. It extracts a lot more air than the fan it replaced, which was also new.
Overall a great product and the bonus is it looks very neat.
Pros: Efficient, east to fit, good value
Cons: A bit noisier than the smaller units so I just sing louder!
I replaced a lower spec Greenwood unit with this one in an effort to overcome a condensation problem in a shower room and it works a treat. The nifty shutters open and close automatically to keep out draughts and whilst it does come with a bit more fan noise, the performance is worth it; just turn down the timer run on to stop it becoming annoying after you leave the room. I am very low on the tech front and managed to fit this easily myself, I have even given instructions to a colleague who i recommended to buy one...sadly I am now an extractor fan expert!
Pros: Reasonable price, solved my problem.
Cons: Not a problem for me, but shutter is slower than I expected.
It replaced a similar Greenwood fan which used the same base plate making installation easy.
The old one used an external flap shutter which high winds buffeted disturbing sleep.
I left the external flap which now doesn't flap in the wind as the closed automatic shutter stops the air flow.
My auto shutter takes 40-45 sec to open and 85-95 sec to close.
I ordered the wrong one initially I returned it and got the correct one; both were delivered quickly, Plumbworld gave me a full refund, much appreciated.
Pros: Geat Service and great Price
I was surprised as Plumb World were over 50% cheaper than anybody else. Well, the product is great ( it was to replaces a life expired unit). Arrived in 2 days and excellent packaging. Thanks Guys, I will be using your Company again.
Pros: Durable, Easy to install, Looks good, Value for money, Well Made
This was a replacement for an earlier Greenwood fan which had given many years service. Easy to got, same fixing centres and quieter than the original
Cons: fan blades loose fitting
First Class Product,First Class Service and 1 Happy Customer!!
Pros: Nice to look at, works well.
I was trying to be clever and shorted my old extractor fan by attempting to clean it with steam cleaner, as steam is what extractor fan deals with, but I was wrong? Please AVOID this, and follow manufacturer's instruction on this.
Anyway, I ordered this greenwood to replace existing greenwood for ease of wiring and replacement. Replacement was easy as expected but you have to allow time for additional tasks like cleaning the duct and external grille.
It would also be nice to have a little extra information on the ant-draught shutters in the info leaflet other than a one--line mention that says: 'The Airvac Elite range are fitted with electric operated anti-draught shutters which have a time delay to open or close'.
?delay?? A bit more info would help?
Bought this fan based on a friend's advice that it would work well for a small shower-room which is in daily use, to replace the existing broken fan. Looked to be easy to install. Although it has only been in use for a few days so far, it seems to be very effective - virtually no humidity builds up in the room, and any that does disappears quickly, no matter how long the shower is running. Is also reasonably quiet. Haven't tried the timer function yet, but looks to be straigthforward to set up.
The fan was installed easily as it replaced an existing Greenwood fan that did not have closing shutters. Works very well and prevents backdraughts into the bathroom.
Fan was purchased to replace an older model Airvac which has broken. Although this is a newer version of the model the fitting instructions were easy and nothing major had to be changed. Even if fitting for the first time the instructions would be easy.
This product was fairly easy to install and adjust to suit my bathroom requirements. I'm very pleased with it and the service received from Plumbworld. If the delivery company's tracking details were more specific it would have helped in organising receipt of the product. As it happened I had to stay home until after 3pm when it was delivered when the tracking showed that it was received at the courier depot (2miles from my home) at 9.08am!
