Solar Attic Fans
Solar attic fans are a critical piece of your home’s overall efficiency. Your solar powered attic fan is extremely simple. The fan pulls hot air out of your attic as fast as possible. Attic fans pull the hot rising air out so that your home stays cooler, and helps draw cool fresh air into your attic.
Your Solar Powered Attic Fan:
Your solar attic fan is the pinnacle of efficiency. A solar fan cooling your attic requires zero electricity from the grid to operate. By investing in your attic exhaust fan you have a beautiful result. That means that for the life of your attic fan, your investment gets better and better. The attic fan is so simply designed that the only moving part is the efficient solar electric motor that drives your fan blade. And the longer you let your attic fan run, the more you will save on your HVAC electrical bills!
The solar panels collect the blistering Houston sun and convert that to power. The panels connect directly to the electric motor through the sleekly designed case. The electric motor below your solar attic fan’s solar panel, installed by Houston Daylighting, drives a fan blade forged from high-tech nautical polymers. By using the nautical polymers your attic fan will not suffer sun & heat warping common in the brutal Houston sun. If you have ever seen an old whirlybird vent that has stopped turning, it is probably sun warped on one side, causing binding. This simple attic fan design ensures both efficiencies and that you have an extremely low-maintenance system.
Keep your attic cool:
Beat the summer heat and reduce your air conditioning costs with a Solar Powered Attic Fan. It pulls heat from your attic which makes your home interior more comfortable. It also helps prevent deterioration of your roof structures and materials.
And now you can maximize the motor performance by adding a Temperature Controlled Thermal Switch. That means that you have an attic fan with a thermostat. When you install a thermal switch, the fan will turn off when it gets cold and turn itself back on when the temperature start warming up but begets too hot.
We help you find the right size and configuration
The Solatube Roof Mount 2400 Solar Attic Fan is our biggest attic fan ever, with an industry-leading 35-watt solar panel that generates maximum energy for major air movement. This means you have serious power to vent the heat from your attic.
The RM 2400’s new motor can handle maximum wattage from the solar panel. It converts that power into a higher fan speed, yet runs with ultra-low vibration and sound.
Smaller attics, open ceiling garages, and even sheds may not need as much power. The Roof Mount 1500 comes with a 16-watt solar panel, creating just the right amount of airflow for efficient venting of heat and moisture. It works with your existing attic venting and prevents wide fluctuations of temperatures in those spaces.
Designed to be mounted inside your attic (like a side wall), the Solar Star Ventilation Fan Interior Mount 1500 converts passive gable, dormer, powered, and whirlybird vents into an active, solar-powered system. The solar panel sits discreetly on your roof to maintain your home’s curb appeal.
