Xpelair Simply Silent DX100HTS 100mm Standard Square Extractor Fan with Pull Cord and Kit 93028AW
Extractor fans are designed to remove unwanted odours and excess moisture. This in turn reduces mould growth and keeps your bathroom fresh.
The Simply Silent bathroom extractor fan range from Xpelair are exactly that, silent. They benefit from two speeds and two extraction rates, 53 or 74 cubic metres/hr which produce noise levels of 22 and 34 decibels respectively. To put that into perspective 22 decibels is slightly louder than rustling leaves. These really are one of the quietest operating fans on the market today.
This model has a modern square design and can be discreetly fitted into a wall, window or the ceiling depending on which is most convenient. The ease and flexibility of installation isn’t this fans only trick, it’s supplied complete with an wall kit comprising a 300mm telescopic wall tube and external grille.
As a bathroom can have high levels of moisture any electrical appliances need to have the correct protection against it. This is called the IP rating or Ingress Protection rating. The Simply Silent range is classified as IPX4 or IP44 which means they have protection from water sprayed from any direction.
If you need something with modern styling, that’s reliable and powerful then the DX100HTS is the fan for you.

It does run quietly, probably better than most. Install instructions clear but no mention of whether switched live overrides humidistat or vice versa. Also the install is more difficult than it could be because cable entry is low down one side, when the chances are the cable comes from directly above as fan is high up wall. Plenty of space inside for cable without squashing though. Provided duct was just about long enough to work in my cavity wall.
