Solar Roof Fan

Maintain a Comfortable Home With A New Solar Roof Fan

Solar roof fans work a lot like many other types of attic fans; they remove the warm air in your attic and replace it with cooler air, aiding your HVAC system in keeping your home comfortably warm in the winter and cool in the summer. 

So what makes a solar fan different? Also known as a PV fan, a solar fan is powered by solar energy, instead of fossil-fuel energy. By sourcing energy from the sun, you not only lower your home’s carbon footprint but can also lower your energy bills.

Does Your Home Need a Solar Roof Fan?

If your home has an attic, chances are it is suitable for a solar roof fan, and the requirements don’t differ much from a roof-mounted attic fan or a gable fan.

As with any solar-powered device, your fan should be placed in a spot where it will get a good amount of sun exposure so that it can generate the needed amount of power to operate. Most solar roof fans can easily be adjusted to receive the maximum amount of sunlight.

Installing a solar roof fan in your attic is a great choice for homeowners who have limited electrical capabilities in their attic or for those who don’t want to go through the trouble of setting up wiring for an electric-powered attic fan.

Benefits of a Solar Roof Fan

Energy Efficient. A solar roof fan is powered by the sun’s energy, instead of relying on fossil-fuel as an energy source. This helps your home leave a smaller carbon footprint. 

Runs Quietly. Because a solar roof fan is powered by the sun, it makes much less noise than other fans. The only sound comes from the rotating blades. 

Lowers Temperature and Humidity. A solar roof fan works to cool your attic and reduce humidity just as well as an electric fan. 

Keeps Your Roof Protected. Heat and moisture can cause the shingles on your roof to melt and warp. It can also promote the growth of mildew and mold. By increasing ventilation in the attic, you can better control humidity and heat buildup from damaging your roof. 

Supports Your HVAC System. Attic fans are meant to support your HVAC system as it works to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, but solar roof fans do so without using additional energy. This can help your HVAC not have to work so hard and extend the life of your system. 

Cost-Effective. When you install a solar roof fan, you not only lower your energy bill by using less power, but you also benefit by receiving federal tax credits for switching to renewable energy.

How a Solar Roof Fan Works

Solar roof fans work by pushing the hot, moist air out of your attic and replacing it with cooler air. To do this, the fan collects energy from the sun through a photovoltaic panel. Solar roof fans can also work alongside passive vents to create better ventilation.

Frequently Asked Questions:

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

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!

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.

Although there are many cloudy 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.
