Attic Exhaust Fan 101 (Solar Star®, Benefits, and More!)

Are you trying to keep your cooling costs down? A solar attic exhaust fan, like those made by Solar Star®, may be the answer! These sun-powered cooling devices will reduce your cooling costs and save your air conditioner! The best part is that these fans cost nothing to run!

At The Solar Guys, we are proud to offer premier solar energy products to our residents in Central Florida. Let’s learn more about all the benefits of an attic exhaust fan for your home! 

Benefits of an Attic Exhaust Fan 

With an attic exhaust fan, the sun works for you! Because this fan uses solar power there is no increase on your electric bill. In fact, by installing an attic fan and keeping your attic cooler, you’ll lighten the load on your air conditioner. The heat that builds up in an attic leaches into your house, forcing your air conditioner to work harder and harder. 

When you invest in a solar exhaust fan you can significantly reduce the strain on your air conditioner. This not only reduces the frequency and cost of repairs to your system but also extends its lifetime.

Another benefit of reducing the strain on your air conditioner is reduced cooling costs. When an air conditioner runs all day, those costs add up and show on your electric bill. Your air conditioner won’t have to work as long and as hard to keep your house cool when you have a solar exhaust fan cooling your attic, and the difference will show on your utility bill.

Need any other reasons to get an attic exhaust fan? They also prevent condensation in your insulation during the winter, which reduces mold and mildew. Solar Star® fans also meet requirements for high-velocity hurricane zones. They even qualify for a 26% federal tax credit! With so many money-saving benefits, can you afford to not have a solar exhaust fan?

Solar Roof Vents

solar star technical Attic Fans

Solar roof vents are a smart and affordable way to cool your attic space, also cooling your house, with little installation time. The Solar Star® Conversion Kit transforms any roof vent into an eco-friendly solar-powered vent. They are perfect for power vents, dormer vents, gable vents and even whirly birds. The kit helps to boost the performance of existing passive vents and transforms energy consuming and noisy vents into quiet solar-powered vents.

Solar roof vents are powered by the sun. There are no electrical hookups, no need for a professional electrician and requires no cost to operate. You can choose any sunny roof location to install a small and attractive solar panel. You can transform your existing attic vent into an active solar-powered solution with our interior mount attic fan.

Florida can get into the high 90’s during the summer and the humidity can be suffocating at times. This heat and humidity can get trapped inside your attic and radiate through your insulation and ceiling into your living space. Once the heat is in your house, your air conditioning does not work as effectively and you might even bump up the thermostat to compensate for the heat inside the house. 

Using solar powered attic exhaust fans help to disperse the heat trapped in your attic making your living space more comfortable, saving you on your utility bills and maintenance costs of your AC unit and extending the lifespan of your unit as well as the life of your roof. Solar roof vents also help to eliminate moisture that might get trapped that would cause fungus and wood decay.
