Trapped heat and moisture in your attic can cause discomfort in your home and reduce the lifespan of your roof. To combat this issue, we present the Solar Roof Vent – a revolutionary product that provides efficient ventilation for your attic. This solar-powered fan is not only suitable for residential use but also for garages, storage sheds, greenhouses, and even dog houses.
The Solar Roof Vent comes pre-installed on a galvanized 8″ metal can roof vent with flashing (16.5″x16.5″). It includes a 3W solar panel attached to the top of the vent hood using four unique stainless steel clips. The solar panel powers a two-ball bearing, 2700rpm, 39cfm fan that is rated for an impressive 50,000 hours of operation. Unlike plastic vents found in other products, our metal vent is designed to last a lifetime on your roof, resisting fading and brittleness caused by prolonged exposure to heat.
Installing the Solar Roof Vent is as simple as any other roof vent. However, it is important to ensure that the installation complies with local building codes. It is worth noting that this product does not replace the need for other vents. Instead, it enhances the effectiveness of your passive roof ventilation system by harnessing the power of the sun.
We recommend installing one Solar Roof Vent for every 600 square feet of roof area. For a typical home with 1200 square feet, 3-5 vents would be sufficient. It is crucial to achieve uniform ventilation across the entire attic space, which is why most homes have multiple passive vents or ridge venting systems installed.
The Solar Roof Vent works by allowing cool air to enter through the eave’s soffit vents and flow along the entire roof deck, escaping through the passive vents at the top. This uniform air movement helps keep your roof’s deck, including the plywood, trusses, and rafters, dry and free from moisture. Additionally, it prevents condensation from dripping down and compromising the insulation’s R-value.
No, a thermostat or on/off switch is not necessary for the Solar Roof Vent. Ideally, the fan should run during summer to remove excessive heat and during winter to eliminate moisture caused by condensation.
The Solar Roof Vent is the ultimate solution for attic ventilation. With its durable construction, easy installation, and efficient solar-powered fan, it ensures a comfortable and moisture-free environment in your attic. Say goodbye to trapped heat and moisture, and extend the lifespan of your roof with the Solar Roof Vent.
