A well ventilated attic offers year-round benefits to the homeowner. During the summer months, when attic temperatures can easily reach 140° or more, a well-ventilated attic makes a home much easier to cool, reducing energy costs, wear and tear on cooling equipment, and helps to prolong the life of roofing components (sheathing, felt, and composition shingles). During the winter months, proper attic ventilation keeps the attic dry.
Smart, Eco-Friendly Home Solution
A Solar Attic Fan is a simple and environmentally sensible solution that can protect your home and even save you money. Powered completely by free solar energy, this sleek and efficient attic vent is compact, quiet and powerful! Simply, the function of a solar attic fan is to improve attic air circulation resulting in a healthy, energy efficient home. Solar attic fans pull hot air and moisture out of your attic extending the life of your roof. In summer months, it keeps your attic cooler helping reduce the load on your HVAC system. In winter months, it prevents moisture build-up.
Solar Attic Fan Models for Residential or Commercial Use
Solar attic fans are manufactured for all roof types and roof pitches for residential homes, industrial buildings or commercial offices. The roof-mounted solar attic fan, our most popular residential model, installs directly on most roof types including shingle, shake and tile roofs. The gable-mounted model attaches to your homes’ existing gable opening and is powered by a remote solar panel installed on the roof. The garage vent kit adds an exhaust system to the solar attic fan that efficiently pulls hot air out of your garage. The curb mounted solar attic fan, generally used for commercial applications, attaches to a pre-built curb and can vent up to 3,255 square feet per unit.
