Solar Powered Attic Vent Fans

Extremely high quality, made in the USA, Incredible warranty!

 
 

The Home Ventilating Institute (whichever) recommends that powered attic ventilators provide at minimum 10 attic air volume changes per hour. To calculate the recommend amount of ventilation for your home, simply multiply the total square footage of your attic space by 0.70 as indicated in the table below, or use the Ventilation Requirements Calculator for a more accurate determination of ventilation needs. For particularly dark (black shingles) or steep roofs, HVI recommends multiplying by a factor of 0.80 to calculate your ventilation requirements. See the chart below for examples.

Additionally, HVI recommends a minimum air inlet area of 144 square inches per every 300 CFM of ventilator capacity. For Attic Breeze vents, we choose to exceed this standard and recommend a minimum outside air inlet area of more than twice that of HVI, or about 1600 square inches per a vent unit. We have found that additional air inlet area provides for better performance and reduces the risk of attic depressurization. Our outside air inlet area recommendation translates to approximately 12-13 standard size (16"x8") soffit vents per each solar attic vent. This equals 128 square inches per soffit vent. If you have gable vents, measure for the square inches and see how much more air inlets you will need to add, if any.

Thermal Switch. These solar attic vents ship standard with a thermal switch included to control the operation of the vent based on the temperature of the attic. The thermal switch minimizes attic heat loss during colder months and extends the run life of the unit. Removal of the thermal switch allows the solar attic fan to be operated continuously, where attic temperature does not control fan operation. This option is recommended for customers in colder climates who may have a need for removing attic moisture during winter months.

These solar attic vents featuring remote mounted solar panels ships with a standard low profile solar panel mounting bracket. These brackets are not adjustable for the angle or direction of the solar panel and can only be mounted onto your roof. The Universal Mounting Bracket option allows for several different mounting options and gives full directional and inclination adjustability of the remotely mounted solar panel. See mounting instructions.
