About this item
Ventilates up to 1,350 square feet. Award winning, professional grade solar powered attic fan can now continue to run after dark.
The solar panel and fan provide up to 25% more power than other fans resulting in better air circulation in your attic. The advanced design provides optimal attic ventilation while drawing its power solely from the solar panel. A single fan can ventilate up to 1350 square feet of attic space and reduce the energy required to keep your home's interior cool in the summer. Running year-round can also help remove harmful moisture from your attic reducing the potential buildup of damaging mold and mildew.
Take control of your Solar Powered Attic Fan. With the addition of the optional Solar Controller with Dual Mode Technology your Solar Powered Attic Fan will now have the ability to run after sunset, or when there is inadequate light available from the sun.
When there is no sunlight available to power the fan and the Solar Controller has the optional house power connection enabled, the Solar Controller will cycle house electricity for 15 minutes every half-hour, for up to 10 hours, in order to power the fan. This will allow your attic temperature to continue to drop after sunset and help remove the hot, stagnant air that can buildup on those warm summer evenings.
The Solar Controller is also an upgraded electronic thermostat and humidistat compared to mechanical thermal switches. Take control of your Solar Attic Fan's thermal switch remotely with the hand-held remote control. All of this makes the Solar Controller a significant upgrade from traditional mechanical thermal switches and humidistats.
Cool your home in the summer. During the peak summer months, your attic’s temperature can rise to 160° or more. This heat build-up can then raise the temperature inside your home and increase the amount of electricity used by air conditioners and other cooling equipment.
43% of air conditioning design load is predicated on attic heat build-up. Maintaining moderate attic temperatures can extend roof life up to 10%. Combined with 30% federal tax credit and many local utility and municipality rebates, return on investment can be up to less than a year of use.
Installing a Solar Powered Attic Fan will help remove the heat build-up in your attic and bring your attic’s temperature down closer to the ambient outside temperature. The reduction in attic temperature will also benefit the homeowner by preserving and extending the life of the roofing and attic construction materials. Additionally, hot air in your attic can then heat the metal exterior of your HVAC ductwork and consequently heat the air passing through it, causing your air conditioner to work even harder.
Remove damaging moisture and protect your home in the winter. During the winter months, warm moist air from inside your home rises into the attic and collides with the colder underside of the roof. The moist air condenses and promotes mold and mildew. If you live in an area that has snow, the warmer attic air will heat the roof and melt the snow which drips to the eaves where it can refreeze as ice and form ice-dams above the eaves. These ice-dams will cause water to work back up under the shingles into the attic and down to the ceiling.
28 gallons of moisture can be absorbed in roofing materials throughout the winter months and released in the spring, frequently causing mold and mildew problems in the attic space. Installing a Solar Powered Attic Fan will allow for better air flow and moisture control inside your attic and prevent the condensation which can lead to mold and mildew problems.
Prevent Ice Damming. If you live in an area that has snow, the warmer attic air will heat the roof and melt the snow which drips to the eaves where it can refreeze as ice and form ice-dams under the eaves. These ice-dams will cause water to work back up under the shingles into the attic and down to the ceiling.
