Kitchen Fan Extractor and Kitchen Rangehoods
Kitchen range hoods are very effective for your home. They have a filtration system which can help in making your kitchen be a better place to cook in. With the help of a kitchen range hood, you can get rid of the cooking smell. Cooking also generates unwanted airborne particles. A kitchen range hood can help remove the steam from the kitchen and the rest of the house. This will also help in improving the air quality in the kitchen and surrounding areas. Range hoods also help in removing the heat from the kitchen area. The minimum kitchen fan requirement is 150mm, a window is not compliant.
Ventilation requirements for kitchen extractor fans according to Healthy Homes Standards are:
Installed FROM 1 July 2019: The fan and all exhaust ducting must have a diameter of at least 150mm OR the fan and all exhaust ducting must have an exhaust capacity of at least 50 litres per second. The fan must vent extracted air to outdoors.
Installed BEFORE 1 July 2019: No minimum size or performance requirements but fans must be in good working order and ventilate to outdoors. This means that the range hood or extractor fan must not vent back into the kitchen, into a roof space or other space. Any ducting must be connected, intact (i.e. without tears or holes) and installed so that extracted air can flow freely through it (e.g. no unnecessary kinks or compressions). Any grills or filters must be unclogged.
Bathroom Extraction Fan
Bathroom extraction fans are required for better ventilation. Condensation in a bathroom is very common, it is easy for mould to grow in the bathroom. A bathroom extraction fan will help in reducing the moisture in the air and increase the clean air levels. It also helps in eliminating odour as well as fumes.
Ventilation requirements for bathroom extractor fans according to Healthy Homes Standards are:
Installed AFTER 1 July 2019: The fan and all exhaust ducting must either have a diameter of at least 120mm OR the fan and all exhaust ducting must have an exhaust capacity of at least 25 litres per second. The fan must vent extracted air to outdoors. Continuously operating extractor fans that operate at a level of extraction below 25 litres per second, or do not have a fan and ducting diameter of at least 120mm, are not capable of providing the necessary level of moisture extraction during

Switching to energy efficient bulbs
Our expert electrician can bring a range of energy efficient bulbs, when on a service call to replace the old incandescent bulbs. The energy used by a standard bulb can often be around 100w. We install low wattage bulbs which consume around 5w to 20w for a similar amount of light. This can make a big difference to your monthly bill.
For a review of your light bulbs, contact us at 0800 484 353.
Switch to Solar Power
To save on your electricity bills, you can switch to a solar power system to generate electricity for you. Recently we switched to a solar power system to run our office on solar energy. This way, we are also doing our little bit in contribution towards climate conservation. We are slowly moving to electric vehicles as well. We have installed solar power-generated electric vehicle chargers which help us charge the electric vehicles. Our power bill for last month came about $17 which is way lower than what we used to pay earlier. Our Wellington electricians can help installing solar panels and solar power systems for both commercial and residential properties.
