    "The extraction rate refers to the amount of air that the extractor will remove, this is usually measured in cubic metres per hour. As a rule of thumb the bigger that number is the better the extractor is. Something else to consider is the noise levels, the lower the dB is the quieter it will be."

    "It’s the rate at which the extractor will draw out air."

    "It means the rate of m3 of air sucked out by the fan, basically the more m3 the stronger the fan is."
