Keeping your kitchen clean and free from nasty smells and mould is essential. Whether you’re a regular home cook, or your kitchen sees as much action as my home treadmill (sorry treadmill!), you’ll still need to make sure that your kitchen is properly ventilated to prevent mould, moisture, and general unpleasantries.
The Cowley Electrical Kitchen Exhaust Fan Installation Cost Guide has been created so that you know exact how much you should be paying for an exhaust fan installation in Australia and the factors that will impact the overall cost of installation in your kitchen.
Kitchen Exhaust Fan Installation Costs
The cost of installing an exhaust fan in your kitchen will depend on the size and positioning of your room. If your room has poor natural ventilation (no windows) or is a large room, then you will inherently need a larger, more-sophisticated exhaust fan set-up than a small, well-ventilated kitchen.
The cost to install a kitchen exhaust fan will depend on the size of your kitchen. The average cost of kitchen exhaust fan installation in Australia is as follows:
Note: These prices are for indicative purposes only, a qualified electrician will be able to provide an accurate quote based on the fan that is used, the size of your room, and the required ventilation.
Factors Influencing installation Costs
There are a number of different factors that influence the cost of installing an exhaust fan in your home. One of the most important factors that you need to consider is the size of the fan required for the space. Like we mentioned above, the larger the fan, the more expensive it will be to install in your home.
Some other important factors to consider when calculating installation costs include the type of material used for construction, whether the fan will be vented to the outside, and the installation location. All of these factors will all play an important role in determining the final cost of the project.
Why Are Kitchen Exhaust Fans Important?
Kitchen exhaust fans play an important role in removing smoke, grease, heat, and odours from the kitchen. In doing so, kitchen exhaust fans help to keep the air in your home clean and fresh and prevent the spread of cooking smells throughout the house - which (let’s face it) we all hate.
When it comes to finding the perfect kitchen exhaust fan, there is no shortage of options on the market. Some exhaust fans are designed to be installed into the wall, while others are designed to be mounted from your ceiling. In addition to the different mounting point options for exhaust fans, there are a variety of different sizes and designs to choose from depending on the size, layout, and ventilation requirements of your space.
How Long Do Kitchen Exhaust Fans Last For?
Investing in a kitchen exhaust fan comes down to two main things; the outlay cost of the fan, and the life of the fan (i.e. how long it will last once it is installed in your kitchen). Just like any appliance, kitchen exhaust fans do have a limited lifespan. And just like any other appliance, investing in a high-quality product is a sure-fire way to increase its lifespan and ensure that you do not need to regularly replace it.
As a rule of thumb, the average lifespan of a kitchen fan is around 10 years. However, this can vary depending on the brand, model, and the installation point in your kitchen. Some models may last longer, while others may last significantly less. We recommend choosing a trusted, brand name with reviews and a warranty of 5 to 10 years to ensure longevity.
Is It Difficult to Install a Kitchen Exhaust Fan?
In a word, yes.
Installing a kitchen exhaust fan is not a straightforward task. We recommend getting in touch with a qualified electrician who can provide recommendations on fan size, installation points, and ideal layout to ensure that the job is done correctly. Just like anything, hiring a professional will ensure that the job is done right, and you won’t forever be wondering whether your kitchen exhaust fan has been installed correctly.
So there you have it, the cost of installing a kitchen fan will depend on the size of your kitchen, the size of your fan, and the required airflow in cubic feet per minute (CFM). Correctly installing a kitchen exhaust fan can improve ventilation, cut down on moisture, and ensure that your cooking doesn’t travel throughout the house and cause issues in other rooms.
