Use this solar roof / attic vent fan to keep your attic and building cooler in summer heat. It uses energy from the Sun to help keep the inside cooler.
It operates without fuel, waste, or pollution and is wind, hail, and impact resistant.
This solar attic fan needs no household electrical wiring, no battery to change, and no electrical bill to pay. It is easier and less costly to install than traditional household-electrical-wired attic fans. No need to pull electrical wires in the attic. No need to pay for an electrician. No worry about attic-fan-household-electricity fire neither because it uses none.
As the Sun heats up the day, this solar fan keeps pushing hot air under the roof to the outside. In the process, cooler air is circulating back in under the roof. This helps keep the building cooler and reduces the air conditioning costs significantly. [It can help reducing attic temperature by up to 50 degrees (F) and saving up to 30% of air conditioning costs, according to the manufacturer. Actual saving will vary, depending on your conditions.
This solar attic fan helps prolong roof’s life, helps reduce moisture build-up and damages under the roof, helps extend the life of HVAC equipment, helps lower AC costs, helps make home more comfortable, helps reduce mold growth and fungal decay, and help reduce ice dams in cold climates.
This unit is powerful enough for up to 1200 sq. ft. of attic space. It can move up to 850 cu. ft. per minute of air flow in full sunlight. This means it is size-suitable for a lot of homes in the US. Multiple-unit installation, of these solar powered attic fans, can help ventilate a larger commercial building. [We also carry different solar attic fans of various sizes & applications on this website.]
About manufacturer and its solar fans: Solar fans from SunRise Solar have been awarded a “Most Valuable Product" by Building Products Magazine 2 years in row, a “Best Product" by BUILDER News Magazine, and "Energy Patriot Award" by US Senator Richard Lugar. They are a favorite among architects and home building professionals. These solar fans are designed and manufactured by an American company, knowledgeable in American roofs and attic fans. They were "born on American roofs". [Roof constructions, materials, and designs vary drastically around the world.] Thus, many practical aspects for installation on American roofs are incorporated into these solar fans. This is a major strength & advantage of these solar fans over other solar fans that are built generically for use in many other parts of the world. These solar fans have been installed on many buildings in the US.
