Seeking Exhaust Fan Recommendations
I am needing to install exhaust fans in my bathrooms. (I have halogen lighting and underfloor heating, so am not interested in any of the IXL range).

Wow thanks for all of the replies... I think i have decided that a change is definitely required.

Green/Blue stuff around tap base
