    Kitchen mechanical extractor


    To get our building certificate for our extension they’ve said that for our kitchen extractor fan

    You require mechanical extraction to the outside from a kitchen either via the cooker hood that you have providing thirty lts or a mechanical extractor elsewhere in the kitchen to the outside providing sixty lts

    Can an electrician do this or if not who?

    "Depends on the certificate you require. Extractor not always required in a kitchen and can sometimes just be recycling carbon filters.

    A Sparky can fit an extractor, needs to be a min 30 Litres per minute I believe."

    "Hi Jade.

    Any electrician in your area should be able to sort this for you. 2 steps required
    1: choose an extraction hood or extraction fan kit.
    2: you will need this to vent outside so a flexible or solid duct will be required and a hole in an exterior wall

    Kind regards

    "You can get anyone to put the extractor and the ducting in but you would need an electrician to wire this up for you providing you with a minor works certification

    "An electrician should be able to do this, basically, a circulating fan which is sometimes found in cooker hoods with charcoal filters does not extract externally, hence why the building regulations are requesting a different type of hood or a separate fan."
