    Do I Need a Solar Roof Fan?

    Most homes with attics are suitable for solar roof fan installation. The space requirements aren’t much different from a gable or roof-mounted attic fan. Like any solar panel, the mechanism should be placed to get a fair amount of sunlight exposure to generate the power it needs. Many solar roof fans can be adjusted to maximize exposure to the sun. Furthermore, attics tend to overheat on sunny days when solar roof fans use the sun’s energy to run anyway.

    A solar roof fan is a solid choice for homeowners whose attic has limited electrical capacity or those who simply don’t want to contend with an electric-powered attic fan’s wiring and connections.

    How a Solar Roof Fan Will Benefit Your Home

    More energy-efficient. A solar-powered attic fan uses the sun’s energy rather than the fossil fuel used for electrical power in many homes. The lack of harmful emissions helps your home reduce its carbon footprint.

    Super-quiet. Like many solar-powered components, a solar roof fan collects energy without generating excessive noise pollution. The only sound will come from the rotating fan blades, not electrical components.

    Cools the attic and controls humidity. A solar roof fan works just as effectively as its electrical counterparts to moderate attic temperature and prevents moisture buildup.

    Protects your roof.  Excessive attic heat or condensation can cause roof shingles to warp, melt, or encourage the growth of mold or mildew. A solar roof fan keeps ventilation active and controls humidity to keep your roof from enduring those problems.

    Extends the life and energy usage of your HVAC unit. All attic fans are designed to relieve some of the pressure from a home’s HVAC system. But solar roof fans do so without any fossil-fuel consumption. You can extend the life of your HVAC system while reducing your carbon footprint.

    More cost-effective. In addition to the moderate cost savings from using less electric power, installing a solar roof fan can generate more savings in the form of federal tax credits for using renewable energy.

    How Roof Solar Fans Work

    A solar roof fan works with the same principles as typical gable fans or roof-mounted ventilators. It helps push out the warm, moist air that amasses in an attic and pulls in more moderate, cool air from the outside.

    To generate enough power for the fan to operate, the solar roof fan works just like any other solar-powered appliance in your home. It collects sunlight through a photovoltaic panel, which is converted into clean energy to power the fan. Solar roof fans can work alongside passive vents as they create more force and pressure to move hot air through them.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    What does a solar roof fan do?

    Using solar power, solar roof fans take the hot air from your attic and replace it with cooler air. This reduces the effort your HVAC system spends trying to keep your house a comfortable temperature for you

    Can a solar roof fan be adjusted throughout the year to maximize exposure to the sun?

    Yes! The fan should be placed to get the perfect amount of sunlight to generate the power it needs. While attics tend to overheat on sunny warm days, solar roof fans use the sun’s energy to cool down the attic and your home.

    What are the benefits of a solar roof fan?

    Some HVACS can be noisy and cost you a lot of money on your electric bill. Solar roof fans are quiet, and use solar energy so if anything, it saves you money on your energy bill!

    Should I invest in a solar roof fan in Seattle?

    Although Seattle is one of the cloudiest cities, the extra long summer days can make up for the lack of sun throughout the year. Also, the panels can be moved around throughout the year to maximize exposure. All energy bills go up during the summer, don’t let yours do the same. Save money with a solar roof fan.
