Great extraction with the associated noise

published

As per the other reviews, this is a pretty loud fan, admittedly, the bathroom is on the edge of the house, so the clearance to the tile roof is <200mm so probably getting some acoustics sent back down.

I checked the few similar fans at Bunnings (size, airflow) and short of spending about $200 on a real high end one, they were all much of a muchness.

The fan it replaced was much quieter, but kind of useless as the ceilings and walls would have lots of condensation on them.

One thing that has helped, went to Jaycar and got some self adhesive sound deadening butyl / foam, wrapped it around the outside and this has taken off the high pitch and has noticeable reduced the sound. (although still loud but more bearable now).

Purchased in February 2020 at Bunnings Warehouse for $69.00.

Does the job well!

published

Bought this about a year ago now to compliment a hpm 3 in 1 ( now replaced ) which the fan capacity was inadequate. Very happy with performance, no steam anywhere! Sure, its a bit loud but at the same time I installed the larger DETA fan in the laundry ( bought one of each as I needed the smaller IXL due to restrictions in the roof above the shower so thought I'd test them both ) and cant tell the difference in sound from either of them. They both work great. The IXL in the bathroom has a small walk in robe between it and the bedroom and while you can hear it if you're awake it does not wake me when my partner showers. Always happy when something works, unlike a lot of junk sold thats not fit for purpose. Would buy again.

Purchased in November 2018.

Too LOUD!

published

Bought twice (to try in different rooms) - returned twice! Noise level is too high for the volume of air being extracted. IXL is my prefer brand BUT not this exhaust fan.
Now I know why "Noise level" is not stated on packaging by manufacturer.

Way to loud

published

Finished my bathroom, thought Id go with a trusted make and went for the more expensive modle, wow I wish I hadnt, the wife and I like to listen to the radio in the shower and getting ready, absolutely no chance with this turned on!! Sent costumer service an email, they phoned me back and basically said tough, its more powerful and thats how loud it is!
I would tell anyone thinking of buying theses fans not to, and I will be keeping clear of IXL products in the future!
DONT BUY (unless youre deaf)

Had to return. Too loud for the en-suite. I can see why they don’t publish dBA for this. Can’t a company that produces so many fan products design a fan by now?

Thank you for taking the time to write this great review of the IXL Ventflo 250. You are correct in decibels are a difficult one to give out, cause bathroom size and ceiling cavities are all different.

Wow. We needed a more powerful fan, but we did not expect to also install JFK airport into our bathroom. Will be taking it back. Installation was easy enough though.

Terrible Fan with blade constantly coming off

published

We purchased this for our laundry to assist with any heat produced from our dryer, yes it's noisy but we were ok with that. It lasted less than a month before it stopped working, called our electrician who installed it who found the blade had come off, he put it back on and within an hour (after paying a callout fee) it happened again. I have now put it on myself, and it lasted less than 5 minutes. We're unable to find the receipt so it was a waste of $59 and now $150 in electrician costs. Won't be buying another IXL fan!

Finally strong exhaust fan for bathroom

published

Bought this IXL 200mm Eco ventflo to replace cheap arlec fan. It has strong fan, loud but powerful. This will suck away moist from bathroom and hopefully prevent black mold to invade again. I will soon get 250mm one for my 2nd bathroom. I noticed the plastic grill was hard to pull before installation, so i had to bent all 4 clips carefully for easier removal later on when cleaning.

Good Afternoon Lazy guy
Thank you for taking the time to review the Eco Ventflo 200. These are fantastic for clearing steam from your bathroom as this has a high extraction rate. However this can lead them to be in the louder side.
Kind regards IXL.

OMG so loud

So loud; taking it back to Bunnings. Wish I’d read the reviews before buying. Hope our next choice is not so loud. Definitely wouldn’t be able to relax with that noice.

You will never have a bath in peace ever again with this fan. It's like standing on the tarmac at the airport on a hot day with the engines going.

Too loud

published

As others have said, I wish I had read these reviews first! Stuck with IXL quality to replace the fan in our toilet and, while it’s great at moving air, it is way too loud for the household. Seems to get to the right level (noise wise) 1-2 sec after turning it on and then it really kicks into gear and goes up by another 10 notches!!! I hope I’m able to return it as the box (and possibly receipt) went with the recycling collection this week! Pretty disappointed.

Wish I had read reviews first. Way too noisy! I am sure there is no need to exhaust quite so much air from the smallest room in the house? Will be reading reviews on the alternative fans before purchasing.

Way too noisy

published

I also brought one to replace a fan that had lost the upper shutters (house two years old - not impressed).
Turned the ECO on, could not believe the noise - there should be a DB rating on the box! It is going back to Bunnings! Not impressed, it should not have even have left the factory. The fan it replaced was 700+m3Hr and was half the noise level!

Powerful by not worth the noise

Exhaust does the job well but the fan is far too loud for comfort. Chose the IXL brand since I assumed the quality would continue with all their products. Bought two and had a handy man install it. Will return them without question.

Way too loud for domestic use. Installed one yesterday and we thought geez that’s loud. Had a shower this morning and woke the whole house up. Will be taking it back today. There should be db ratings on these products.

NOISY!

published

I bought 2 of these and installed one in our ensuite to try out. I was initially surprised at the amount of noise these created but assumed we would get used to it over time. However we have not. The fan is great at extracting a huge amount of air and we haven't had a fault with it, but the noise has become almost oppressive. I removed it and tried to return them both to the place of purchase (a major hardware chain) but I have misplaced the receipt and they won't accept. Very disappointed. I have since purchased another brand. Note, the fan doesn't have ducting capability so for our installation it was venting the moist bathroom air into the roof space which I have decided (long term) isn't a good idea. Would not recommend.

Too noisy compared to other good exhaust fans.

published

It's so noisy. You're better off buying the $12 more expensive DETA brand 250mm high extraction rate fan which also has backdraft shutters, is far quieter and says it moves more air (490m3/h vs 750m3/h). I think that the grill is clipped on far too tightly to be readily removable for cleaning too. I returned the IXL exhaust fan on noise alone.

They don't publish the dBA for it like other companies do. I tried a few before settling on another brand, but this one is well beyond 50dBA.

Hi Sunshine
We do not offer decibel ratings on our products as every installation is different. Due to this we cannot give a true reading.

Hi John
My apologies for the delay. If you turn the cover to the left and pull down it should come off with a little force.
