Why You Should Have A Solar Attic Fan Installed

Mar 3, 2008
For those of you who are lucky to have an attic it's generally advised that you buy an attic fan. There are different types available however buying one which is solar power offers a number of advantages. Not only is it great for those who want to reduce their impact on the environment but it also means you don't have the hassle of installing loads of cables. Having an electrical engineer in your home can be very expensive so buying solar power can save you a lot of money on installation and running costs.

One of the problems faced with attics is moisture and your solar attic fan can be set up to work automatically as it's able to store power gained from the sun. Because it's solar powered you don't have to do much to install it and they are very simple units so the chance of them breaking down is minimised.

You don't have to live in the middle of a desert to experience hot temperatures. Most places in the world will suffer at least a few days or weeks or raging heat. Most people living in hot climates will already have some air con units installed in their homes but for the rest of us who live in a temperate climate, this is not something we normally have the luxury of. Even if you do have air con units or cold air fans, the cost of powering these can be astronomical. Energy costs are becoming more and more expensive and less affordable so it's important that we look for alternatives such as solar power.

If you have ever had to go into your attic whilst there is a heat wave you will feel like you've just walked into an oven. It's so hot you may even feel as if you're going to pass out. Luckily an attic fan will transfer the hot air in your attic outside bringing the temperature of your attic back down to a much more tolerable temperature.

Attic fans along with gable ventilators work on the same principal of having a solar panel positioned on the roof. The panels takes the energy from the sun's rays and this energy is then stored into battery so that the ventilation can work even at night or when it's very cloudy. Although installation is quite easy if you are used to DIY, having the solar panel placed on the roof is the part which you may find a bit more difficult. For those of you who are used to carrying out DIY tasks in the house you should find this easy, otherwise you can just get a tradesperson in to do the job for you.
