Exhaust fans are air extraction systems that remove damp air from closed spaces, helping keep the air fresh and the space free from mould or mildew.

Bathrooms are typically the wettest rooms in any house, with the steam from the bath or shower leaving a layer of moisture all over the interior walls and surfaces. By extracting this damp air out into the atmosphere, exhaust fans help keep mould and mildew under control, improve air quality, extend the life of fixtures and furniture, and avoid drip stains on painted surfaces.

For reasons of health, it’s better to duct an exhaust fan out into the atmosphere instead of the ceiling cavity. Hot steam condenses as it meets the cooler air in the roof space, leading to dampness and mould over time.

Given the reliance on exhaust fans in homes, it’s also important to ensure noiseless and energy efficient operation. One of the quietest and most energy-efficient domestic air extraction systems available in the market today is the Schweigen silent exhaust fan. Powered by the patented Isodrive motor system, the German-made fan is installed outside your home to ensure silent operation during air extraction.

The powerful Isodrive motor removes odours, steam, stale air and humidity in seconds with a 650m³/hr airflow. Air extraction is performed in one rapid energy-efficient pull so that steam does not have time to condense, not even along the ducting. Best of all, the silent operation ensures the sanctuary of your home is not disturbed.

Available in a range of vent styles and finishes, Schweigen silent exhaust fans are proven home ventilation solutions suitable for use in almost any room in your apartment, townhouse, single or multi-storey house to effectively deal with odour, moisture and ventilation issues. The exhaust fans are recommended for a host of interior spaces including bathrooms, bedrooms, toilets, garage, wine cellar, laundry room and more.

Optional venting kits are available to enable two adjacent rooms to be vented at the same time with a single unit.
