Hey guys

I'd like to get an electrician to wire in an extractor fan in my bathroom.

Would it be possible for someone to easily wire a timer extractor fan to the closest downlight (see attached photos).

Thanx!
Rachel

Simple answer is no as for the timer circuit to work you need a separate permanent live feed to keep it powered once the switched live is disconnected. The isolator also needs to be outside the room. Is loft access possible?

As already said, you need a permanent line, also there is nothing to say a fan must come on with lights, however where there is a non opening window, the regulations require that it must be able to be switched on without the lights. It is all down to the windows in the bathroom.

Hey guys

Thanx for your information! Unfortunately there is no access to the loft.

If I understand you correctly you can't put an extractor in, even without a timer, without an isolator in a different room?

I think I'm lost :dunno:

Correct, isolator should be outside the bathroom.

Depends on height and distance from fixed bath or shower.
