Luminous Vento Deluxe

Topping our list is the Luminous exhaust fan Vento. This deluxe fan is made out of plastic and has a 200mm sweep capacity.

Bright white in colour, the dimensions for this fan are about 33 cm X 14.5 cm X 32 cm and thus it is ideal for a 10 inch * 10-inch wall window space, this exhaust fan is not just a staple for bathrooms but is a perfect fit for kitchens too.

Made entirely out of plastic, do not let the quality fool you, it is as sturdy as it can get. Easy to get mounted on the wall, its ability to handle the odours of the bathroom and the smoke, grease and lint from the kitchen are equal.

Apart from offering good ventilation, the fan is energy efficient too as it operates at a wattage of 35 watts. It offers a smooth winding and noiseless operation.

But the only problem with this fan is the speed of operation. Comparatively, it seems to be a little lagged in this area but at the same time, it seems to compensate for this by high suction power.

The Luminous  Exhaust Fan Vento Deluxe comes with a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty for any product malfunctions during the tenure of the warranty.

Things we liked about the fan:

  • White colour
  • Simple design
  • 33 cm X 14.5 cm X 32 cm are perfect for a maximum of 10 inch X 10 inch wall
  • 35 watts wattage used
  • Durable plastic
  • 2 Years manufacturer’s warranty

Things we didn’t like about it:

  • Speed concerns

While having an exhaust fan is great to remove bad odour, you can use a bathroom freshener to feel a little bit comfortable in the toilet.

Havells Ventilair DSP

The next product on our list comes from Havells, a trusted brand for home and kitchen appliances in India. The Havells Ventilair DSP is a metal Exhaust Fan with a 230mm sweep.

It features high-quality metal blades and a body that offers amazing performance. The three sharp blades, just like others help in the uniform distribution of the air in all directions.

With an air sweeping size of 230 mm, it helps in better air delivery. The energy consumption of this device is about 400 watts of electricity which is probably a concern if you are on a shoestring electricity budget.

Though the working speed of the fan is 1350 rpm, it is incredibly noiseless in operation and provides optimum airflow for sucking out the air from inside.

Also, it is fast in pushing it outside too thanks to its 700 cubic meters per minute suction power

Weighing around 2.77 kgs this fan is easy to install. If you want an exhaust fan from a reputed brand with advanced features like high-performance motor, jerk-free oscillation, and superior low voltage you can consider this one Havells Ventilair 130mm Roof Mounting Exhaust Fan (White),  which is available at a slightly higher price.

The only drawback we find with this product is that it is too slow for an exhaust fan.

Overall we are satisfied with the performance of the product, it features three blades, noiseless, working speed of 1350 rpm.

Things we liked about the exhaust fan:

  • High quality three sharp blades
  • Sweeping size of 230 mm
  • Noiseless technology
  • Working speed of 1350 rpm
  • Air delivery speed of 700 cubic meters per minute

Things we didn’t like about it:

  • Low speed

Usha Crisp Air 200mm

Usha is a well-known brand in Indian households for a long time now. The Crisp Air exhaust fan comes in with the same trust and quality that Usha has been bringing to the Indian Middle class for ages.

One of the best fans available in India at an affordable price and probably the only fan on the list that features an automatic shutter. Also, it is one of the few fans on the list that comes with a rust-proof feature and has a stylish and sleek design.

First let us talk about the automatic shutter featured in this which opens the rear shutters of the fan automatically, due to airflow whenever the fan is switched on. Even though the fan is made out of metal, the blades and the body is coated with anti-rust powder painting which aids in the prevention of the formation of any kind of rust on it.

With a sweeping size of about 200 mm and a motor speed of 1300 rpm, the fan aids in better air delivery and suction thus providing better exhaust.

Light in weight and noiseless in operation, the fan is also energy efficient with a meagre consumption of only 40 watts thus having a very low impact on your electricity bill.

The Usha crisp is not just available in the 200 mm variant but also available in the 150 mm variant and a standard 250 mm variant.

Apart from the poor quality of plastic, the Usha crisp performs well and is an incredible addition to your bathroom as an exhaust fan. Furthermore, it comes with a warranty of one year from the manufacturer like others

Things we liked about the fan:

  • Sweeping size of 200 mm
  • Automatic shutter
  • Rust Proof body
  • Lightweight  
  • Noiseless.
  • 1 Year manufacturer’s warranty

Things we didn’t like about it:

  • Poor quality plastic.

Orpat 6 Inch Ventilation Fan

The Orpat Ventilation fan is a simple 6 X 6-inch fan that has a very minimal energy consumption plastic bladed axial fan.

With a total air sweep of 150 mm, the Orpat fan has a stylish design, a plastic netted cage-like covering and a blade with a neat and unique design. The small blades help in the sharper cutting of air and thus facilitate higher airflow.

Also, the fan has inner fuse protection. This protection will make sure that in the event of high electricity or voltage surges, the fan does not get damaged due to it.

The motor of this ventilation fan claims noiselessness but has a certain decibel noise which, in a wider opinion, can be learned to ignore.

Apart from that, the low air suction power of this fan is also a concern which one needs to look after. Having said that, it should be pointed out that this is one of the most affordable fans on the entire list. If your bathroom is a small one, where you are just a family of 2 or 3, then this is a perfect purchase.

The Oprah ventilation fan comes with a manufacturer’s warranty of 1 year for any defects or malfunctions during the tenure of the warranty.

Things we liked about the fan:

  • Unique blade cut axial fan
  • Durable plastic body with a neat netted plastic cage closing
  • Inner fuse protection against any sudden voltage surges
  • 6 inch size
  • 150 mm sweep
  • 1 year manufacturer’s warranty

Things we didn’t like about it:

  • Low suction power
  • Has noise issue

Bajaj Maxima 300mm

Bajaj needs no introduction in India. A trusted brand of home appliances in India, Bajaj’s Maxima is a 300 mm sweep exhaust fan from its maxima ventilation fan collection.

Built out of special high-grade plastic, this fan promises a longer life than most of the fans on this list.

As mentioned, it has a sweeping size of 300 mm and 5 blades all of which promises to provide better air delivery and clear out the dampness of the bathroom.

To aid this sweep, the fan has a motor that runs at a speed of 1000 rpm at a meagre power consumption of 55 watts. But for larger bathrooms, this fan speed may not be an ideal fit which is kind of a minor letdown of the fan.

Apart from the 300 sweep version, Bajaj’s maxima also has 150 and 200 mm sweep variants priced differently but function totally at the same level as the 300 mm quality.

Bajaj provides you with a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty for any product manufacturing defects or malfunctioning during the tenure of the warranty.

Things we liked about the fan:

  • Warranty of two years
  • Sweeping size of 300
  • Special grade plastic
  • Five numbers of blades
  • 55 watts power

Things we didn’t like about it:

  • Low motor speed.

MAA-KU AC Axial Cooling Blower Exhaust Rotary Fan

MAA-KU is a relatively new entrant into the market but their AC-Axial Cooling blower exhaust fan is a great addition to a healthy and hygienic bathroom.

Though specifically designed for usage in thermal cooling rooms, this fan is a perfect fit for a normal bathroom of kitchen usage too. Thus it is a multipurpose fan. The room size has to be about 5X3X6 feet.

While the outer body and the fan are out of high-quality aluminium to die-cast, the fan has a powerful motor, the blades are made out of durable plastic.

The fan is light in weight but needs extra casing protection if you are fixing it for a long time. This will help prevent any damage to the blades (though the body is made out of iron, there is a very little chance of rusting)

Coming to the operation of the product, it is very smooth and provides very good suction. Also at the same time has a very and almost negligible noise of just 40dB.

But, owing to the very small size of the fan, you cannot use it for larger bathrooms. Ideal only for smaller bathrooms. The product comes with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty for any manufacturing malfunctions during the tenure of the warranty.

Things we liked about the fan:

  • Durable aluminium die cast body
  • Durable plastic blades
  • Noiseless operation at just 40 dB sounds
  • 1 year manufacturing warranty

Things we didn’t like about it:

  • Too small size.

Bathroom Exhaust Fan Buying Guide

#1- Type of Fan

Bathroom exhaust fans are specifically designed to push out damp air and moisture from the inside of the bathroom to the outside.

For this reason, the bathroom fans are easier to clean than a kitchen exhaust fan.

#-2. Fan Size & Sweep Area

When choosing an exhaust fan there are two important things to remember -fan size and its sweeping area.

You cannot randomly walk into a store and expect a single size fan to fit the bathrooms window. Most people think that a big window with a small fan will help push more air outside but this will just lead to random and unfiltered air entering your bathroom and increase the overall moisture levels of the room.

Larger windows need bigger fans whereas smaller windows need smaller fans and all of these measurements are taken in the form of “cubic feet per metre” or CFM. The CFM value decides how much ventilated fan you need for your bathroom.

For this, first, you need to calculate the square size of your bathroom by foot. This is nothing but the product of the width of the wall to the height of the room. For instance, if the bathroom is 5 feet wide and 7 feet tall, then the room is 35 square feet (which is not that big).

It is a good idea to get a fan that is slightly bigger than the size of the exhaust fan wall. The standard size is about 60 CFM while the minimum available size begins with 50 CFM.

If your bathroom has a jetted tub or any other dual room or shower cabins or anything as such, then it is suggested that you get more than one fan. A single fan may not be that helpful.

The following chart will guide you in picking the right size fan for your bathroom wall. Fans with 6 inches, 8 inches and 9 inches are more popular than others.

Sweep areas of 200mm, 250mm and 300mm are trending and most suitable for bathrooms.

#3- Noise and Vibration

If noise and vibration are coming from your exhaust fan, then it’ll be unpleasant. But how do know about their vibration and noise level?

Noises are measured by sones. and the lower the number the better product and silence in nature.

#4- Pricing

After the recommended sections above, you need to fix your budget properly. A better quality fan with a swept area of 250mm and less noise level can cost you anywhere between 3000 to 8000 rupees.

Higher price promises better quality and vice versa.

#5- Warranty

The higher the better quality assurance and hassle-free fixing. In this list, the Luminous Vento Deluxe model is the one that comes with 2 years manufacturer warranty.
