The Basics of a Solar Attic Fan

A solar attic fan pushes the excess moisture out of the attic and keeps the attic roofing cool. Ultimately, it improves air circulation in the attic and throughout your homes, no matter the season. Suppose your regularly use the rooms adjacent to the attic. In that case, you will notice a significant difference in the temperatures and quality of air in those rooms once you install a solar attic fan.

Solar attic fans are a simple and environmentally sensible solution that will save you money. Solar-powered attic fans run entirely on solar energy. The sleek and efficient vent is both compact and quiet. Operational right from the start, the solar attic fan installs easily — no electrical wiring, expensive electrician, or city permits! And let’s not forget it’s powerful! The fan operates at a whopping 850 cfm, and a single unit can fully vent up to 1200 square feet. Place the solar attic fan wherever you need improved circulation: attics, garages, lofts, workshops, storage sheds and even barns.

The Benefits of a Solar Attics Fan

Reduces the amount of work your A/C does to keep your home cool

Provided that your home is also insulated adequately with fiberglass or cellulose insulation and even with a radiant barrier, you will enjoy lower energy bills monthly because you are not running your AC as much to keep your home comfortable. Attic fans work in conjunction with your entire insulation system in your attic. The colder your attic, the less your AC runs daily, and the lower your monthly electric bill will be as a result of it.

Increases the lifetime of your roof

The solar attic fan is placed near the peak of the roof to draw hot air out of the attic. Just as in a car in the sun with all the windows closed, the air in an attic can reach 150F in the summer. Hot, humid air, when trapped in your attic can deteriorate the roof and structure of your home.

Takes the heat load off your insulation

A hot attic will fill your insulation with heat causing excessive heat transfer from your attic to your living space. By reducing this heat, you will improve the efficiency and comfort of your home.
