Exhaust fan inspections

Utilising an experienced exhaust fan electrician to carry out an exhaust fan inspection is vital to ensure its safety and purpose is suitable for the space it is installed. There are many reasons why an exhaust fan may not be operating effectively, which is why an inspection by an exhaust fan electrician is necessary.

The reasons include, but are not restricted to:

●    Airflow capabilities

●    Ventilation obstructions

●    Vibration annoyances

●    Incorrect wiring

●    Fan & duct condition/cleanliness

●    Installation positioning


At Kenner Electrics, our exhaust fan electricians in Melbourne's east can inspect exhaust fans and provide clients with the right solutions for their needs.

Exhaust fan upgrades

Often exhaust fans can be undersized, under performing and unserviceable, leading to a required exhaust fan upgrade to ensure healthy indoor air quality and cleanliness. Our exhaust fan electricians have the expertise to size an exhaust fan correctly and to install it safely and professionally. There are many factors why an exhaust fan may need upgrading.

Insufficient airflow (m3/hr or CFM)

The rated air movement (airflow) is measured in cubic metre per hour (m3/hr), or cubic feet per minute (CFM), and if not sized correctly for the area, the exhaust fan will not be able adequately exhaust the stale/moist air from the space.

Fan deterioration

As exhaust fans are used regularly, sometimes motors can wear, a bearing can seize, and blades can loosen, causing the exhaust fan not to work at optimum performance. A seized fan will eventually overheat and has been known to catch fire.

Dirt and grime build-up

This can lead to the exhaust fan becoming noisy, unhealthy and inefficient, causing restricted airflow and operation.

Incorrect installation

If the exhaust is installed in an ineffective position or undersized for the room, it is not helpful and can lead to inefficient extraction.

The importance of an exhaust fan in your home

An exhaust fan is often an appliance afterthought and a less aesthetically pleasing installation that homeowners often ignore. However, the importance of a functioning exhaust fan within specific areas is essential to cleanliness, air quality and structure integrity.

Prevents mould and bacteria

An exhaust fan removes humidity to prevent mould and bacteria growth, leading to allergic reactions, respiratory issues, skin and eye irritation if left unresolved.

Dispels odours

Exhaust fans dispel odours that can arise from piles of dirty clothes in the laundry, used wet towels hanging in a bathroom or full kitchen waste and organics bins, which all can leave unappealing smells lingering throughout the house.

Avoids home damages

Humidity and moisture traps within the building can be problematic, leading to carpet mould, timber deterioration, insulation breakdown, and pests like white ants. Exhaust fans can avoid damages to the house and the expensive repair cost.
