Inline fans offer a powerful and discreet solution for ventilating high moisture areas like bathrooms, helping to prevent condensation and mold growth. But what exactly are inline fans and how do they work?

What Are Inline Fans Used For and How Do They Work?

Inline fans are installed in the roof or loft space above the bathroom, with ducting running from a discreet grille in the bathroom ceiling to the fan's extract spigot. From there, the ducting extends to the external grille, usually situated discreetly under the eaves. Some inline fans, like the National Ventilation UMDTKLED and Airflow AV100T, even provide the option to combine lighting with the internal grille, adding a practical and attractive feature to the bathroom.

Are Inline Fans Better Than Wall Mounted Extractor Fans?

When compared to wall mounted extractor fans, inline fans offer a more powerful extraction rate, making them ideal for ventilating humid and moisture-laden environments. While powerful wall mounted extractor fans like the Vent Axia Lo Carbon Response 7 can provide an extraction rate of up to 126m³ per hour, popular inline fans such as the Manrose MF100T, Envirovent Silent SILMV160/100T, and National Ventilation UMD100T offer extraction rates of up to 245m³ per hour, 180m³ per hour, and 187m³ per hour respectively.

The impeller design of inline fans, known as "mixed flow," combines centrifugal and axial impellers, resulting in improved airflow and performance. This design allows inline fans to be installed in longer ducting runs and cope with bends without compromising their performance.

Unlike wall mounted extractor fans, which need installation on an external wall, inline fans can be installed directly above the source of steam and moisture, reducing the likelihood of condensation and mold formation. They also offer flexibility in terms of installation location, with some models, like the Vent Axia ACM Range, suitable for vertical installation.

Additionally, the installation of inline fans is simpler and requires minimal alterations, as it only requires a hole for the extraction grille in the ceiling.
