    Default Centrifugal extractor fan choice

    Does anyone have experience of the Vent Axia Solo Plus or Quadra range? I need a bathroom extractor for a relatively long extraction run. The Quadra seems more powerful on paper but also more noisy?

    Is it worth going for the Humidstat version for a bathroom with no windows or just a timer with an overrun?

    If it's a long run why not use an inline fan ?

    Humidistat are the best, as it will run on until the moisture is lowered. Go for the best you can afford, with the best flow. All are noisey to some extent. If you can get an inline fan amd fit it to a somthing solid. This will keep the noise down.

    Can't break the ceiling for an inline fan so has to be a surface mounted centrifugal but not mega noisy as the bathroom is off the bedroom.

    I said I can't break the ceiling (as it has already been finished) so the fan will be surface mounted. The wire is there as is the ducting.
