Does anyone have any experience of this sort of bathroom extractor?

The alternative would be one that is operated when the light switch goes on (not keen on this)

Yes, I have one and it's a bit rubbish really. It's supposed to come on when the humidity reaches a certain level which you can adjust.

It only ever came on when the shower had been running for ages and the room was really steamy. Not much use as I bought it because the humidity level in my house is high in all rooms and I thought it might help with condensation problems.

I've disabled the automatic feature and now just switch it on before I run the shower.

Arggh! Thank you Bakingbad - it's good to hear your experience.

I just don't trust the kids to switch the extractor on so thought I could get round that by making the thing automatically controlled.

Back to the drawing board!
