A recent survey by Trend-Monitor and the Bathroom Manufacturers Association has found that bathroom budgets have increased significantly to roughly £7.5k. With this increased budget comes higher expectations so it’s important that electricians can offer customers what they want when refurbing a bathroom or adding an en-suite to a property. Fortunately, leading ventilation specialist, Vent-Axia, is well equipped to provide on-trend fans that tick all the right boxes for electricians and their customers.
With any bathroom renovation, ventilation is key to ensuring good indoor air quality (IAQ) and freedom from condensation and mould. As consumers spend more than ever on updating their bathrooms or adding en-suites, it’s important that electricians are also up-to-date with the latest trends of bold aesthetics, spathrooms, and health and wellbeing.
“Gone are the days when ventilation was purely about extracting moisture-laden air to avoid condensation and mould in a bathroom,” said Natasha King, RMI product manager at Vent-Axia. “Consumers are now demanding much more from their ventilation. Good IAQ is essential, but they also want fans to look good, be quiet, offer style options and even be app controllable. At Vent-Axia we have developed a range of fans that mean consumers can have any and all of these options.”
An increased focus on interior design is driving improved aesthetics of everything in the home, including the bathroom, with black interiors showing no sign of decreasing in popularity. Ventilation has traditionally been available in white but Vent-Axia’s on-trend Lo-Carbon Svara is available in black or white, meaning greater choice for the consumer and more options for matching their ventilation to their aesthetic.
Spa-inspired bathrooms are also an increasingly popular option, where people can escape the stresses of busy lives and chill out in the bath. Creating an oasis of calm is essential so a noisy extractor fan is a definite no-no. An average extract fan operates at 35dB(A), which is loud in a confined space. Vent-Axia’s whisper quiet Silent Fan offers ultra-low sounds levels from just 12dB(A). The range also offers electricians flexibility, making install a breeze, since it is available with 17 different models including an IPX5-rating, variable speed models, humidistat options and both intermittent and continuous ventilation models, as well as the option of open and closed grilles. For a customer’s peace of mind, as well as a peaceful bathroom, the Silent Fan has been awarded Quiet Mark certification, which recognises the quietest solutions to unwanted noise.
Health and wellbeing is also high up on many households’ agendas as we become increasingly aware of the air we breathe. This means consumer demand for fans that make a real difference to IAQ are an essential. While many fans effectively improve IAQ, Vent-Axia’s Lo-Carbon Svara and PureAir Sense feature app control allowing households to control their ventilation from the comfort of their sofa. The innovative app unlocks a whole range of different functions to control a home’s IAQ, such as a silent scheduling and automatic cycles, offering flexible ventilation to suit a household’s lifestyle. Add to that, the PureAir Sense is the UK’s only bathroom fan with Odour Sense Technology. Designed to improve IAQ, the fan increases airflow when the sensor detects that air in a home is poor, creating a comfortable, healthier living environment.
With aesthetics, low noise levels and good IAQ all remaining increasingly important in bathroom design, ventilation that can offer these along with smart features and low running costs are sure to prove popular with households. Electricians who can offer these ventilation options as part of a bathroom renovation are sure impress customers.
