Shower Light with Fan and Timer (offline only) less than a fiver!

25
Found 21st Sep 2008Made hot 21st Sep 2008
Was looking in B&Q for a zone 1 light (to go over the bath) and separate extractor fan with a timer. Found a combined unit for £34.99.
Mulled it over and went to Wickes (M Keynes) to see what they had. £8.47 for practically the same thing. Went through the till at £4.97. Bargain when you consider that a shower light on its own is a tenner! This is low voltage too, so will go very well with my other low voltage bathroom lights.
* the website image shows the a#se end of the product, the light is at the other*
Plenty instore, but none in stock online.

Fantastic price - £25 - £30 in most places

Paid £16.50 for light and £16.30 for fan with timer at tlc-direct (+vat)

Good deal

What is the barcode number of this item ?

Thanks
Daniel

Fantastic price.................but all these cheap fans are a waste of time, you as well just open a window.

you should pay attention to how much (technical term) ...suck it has. I've got one, not this model mind, over the shower and it's useless, it makes no difference whatsoever. The bathroom is still full of steam.

Don't even bother putting it on anymore.

Unit is stated as having 93 cubic metres of suck per hour. I had the same Wickes unit (without the light) in a previous house and had no problems. As I said in my original post, a shower light on its own is a tenner. For less than half that price, you are getting a shower light and extraction. Oh and theres a 3 year guarantee. Come on, the deal is hot, especially when it is half the ridiculously cheap shelf price. The two hoses which come with it are a nearly tenner each when bought separately. :thumbsup:

and those with a timer cost more, as this one has

Why don't you click on the link?
Extract capacity 93m3 per hour

nice find

Nice price - but you will have to know how to put it in and connect it up - only supposed to be done by an electrician nowadays...

Remember this is notifiable work if fitting yourself, Part P and all

The fan will be **** to install and it wont be powerfull enough to make any difference, now this is a fan!

76 cubic metres per hour on this one, 93 on the Wickes model, where's your logic :?:

Heat added as I would buy this at the fabulous low price :-) xx

Try switching the fan on well before taking a shower. Technically an extraction fan works by lowering the pressure in the room in which it is fitted, allowing smell/steam to gravitate towards the exhaust, it also therefore follows that you need to ensure that the bathroom door is closed.

its an SLV 20 watt halogen lamp. Much the same as a normal spotlight, but it's specifically for the bath/shower area. Like this, but centre black and surround in white -

I'd also like to point out that as you have to more than likely, cut a hole in the ceiling into the loft, you attract spiders to go through it and come in your bathroom. It also gets cobwebs through the slots.

Nice.

Well once fitted, you would run a bead of silicon/decorators filler around where the edge of the grille meets the ceiling - job done...

I beg to differ - now this is a fan! screwfix.com/pro…mer

I put one of these in and it's awesome! I have the vent above the shower cubicle and there is no steam in the bathroom when someone has finished showering etc... 20x more expensive mind you! :-D

Good deal for this tho, esp when you consider what's included. Hot vote from me!

Don't think you quite understand the concept of this thing. The 'slots' you refer to are at the exhaust end of the system i.e. outside. The system flow is through light fitting vent, through flexible hose (same as tumble dryer hose) to fan unit, through more flexi hose to the outside vent. As far as the loft is concerned, it's a sealed system. The website picture is of the product as packaged. In reality it stretches out considerably in all directions, making it easy to route through the loft. Also, as the fan is not in the head of the fitting (as its in the loft), it's nice an quiet.

exellent find, was looking for one of these a couple of weeks ago and paid alot more for it. very hot!!
