Morning All,
as part of a bathroom refit - which includes removing the last single-glazed window in the house, reducing window size and dropping a ridiculously high ceiling, I’m replacing the bath with a shower.
Condensation has never been an issue, but maybe more frequent use might provoke it, and I’m toying with the Vent Axia mvhr to head that off and conserve some of that lovely enhanced warmth. I can vent through the newly-created suspended ceiling to the outside.
Nothing I see in the various online suppliers encourages me to believe this unit can be ceiling mounted. VA technical (via a sales person, wasn’t allowed to talk direct) say it can be mounted with its outlet vertical instead of horizontal ie on a ceiling - but it wouldn’t be the first time technical support misunderstood the question or was just plain wrong.

So, anyone got one of these on their ceiling? Let me rephrase that: anyone got on on their ceiling and working?

Cheers, Chas

Well, that’s pretty unequivocal - even shows a slight ‘downhill’ slope to the duct, presumably for condensate...

So, why would Vent Axia Tech encourage me to ceiling mount?

Thanks,

Chas

I have one or very similar in the kitchen, mounted on a downward slope. so any condensation drains outward not back to  fan unit. Can't. see a vertical install working. Good luck.

I don't think any of them can be mounted vertically, but there are a few similar products to look at:
