    Morning..

    Just wondering if anyone knows what official building regs state about having to install the above when doing a refurb of house?

    I have had building control officers tell me in the past that fans are required in kitchens bathrooms and utility rooms, but I can't find anything in the building regs (approved document F) which backs this up.

    I have a customer who says he doesn't want them and I have told him he has to have them...anybody help??

    I'd guessing, so don't take this as gospel.
    It use to be that you only had to fit extractor fans in a kitchen or bathroom if they didn't have access to free flowing air. Ie, no outside opening window. They will need an overrun timer if there is no outside window.
    A ducted cooker hood would suffice for a kitchen.
    I'll ask my building inspector friend his views when he's home

    Spot on Ruston.

    Basically if you are doing building works, then you you can't make the ventilation worse ie if it had a fan or cooker hood to the outside then you have to maintain or replace.
    If it didn't, and you have opening Windows, then there is no requirement to fit one.

    Are building control involved in the project?

    If so the client has too comply!

    If not crack on... But I think they are mad

    Only used to apply if you are moving the origional bathroom on a full renovation or adding a new one . the origional bathroom dose not need to comply
