Garage fans make a huge difference in the usefulness of your garage. Whether you’re working on your car, your fitness, or your next great project, you want to keep the heat out. At The Solar Guys, we have garage fans that are powered ventilation solutions to bring cool, outside air into any garage.
In Southern climates, garage temperatures can reach more than 25° hotter than outside temperatures, and attics can reach a blistering 150°.
Because of these high temperatures your AC is forced to work longer and harder and valuable items stored in the garage can experience damage due to excessive heat. This leads to higher electric bills and extra wear and tear on the AC unit.
Our garage fan operates by circulating the cooler air from outside the garage. This cooler air is pulled in through the included garage door vents.
The air moves through the garage before being exhausted out through the garage fan mounted in the ceiling. You are in complete control using the included adjustable thermostat.
For garages with attic space above them, you want to keep both spaces cool to keep yourself comfortable and your home protected from the elements. This model pulls hot air out of the garage and attic while bringing cool air in from the outside.
The Solatube® Garage Fan is great if you’re looking to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. It uses a thermostat to automatically adjust temperature, so you can walk in and feel instantly comfortable no matter the season.
Garage fans actually save more energy that you might think! Garage fans work by bringing cooler air into the garage from the outside using vents. When this air is brought into the garage, there is no need to use additional fans or air conditioning systems that utilize an abundance of energy.
At the same time, a garage fan eliminates heat-build up that can be extremely difficult to dissipate and often overworks cooling systems causing them to perform inefficiently.
Finally, a garage fan saves energy by giving you complete control of your system. Whether you need to save energy or save on your electric bill, you always have the option to turn the system down or off, depending on your needs and preferences. Contact us today and we’ll show you how it works!
Absolutely! Not to worry - your garage fan will stay quieter than most air conditioning systems and other fan options thanks to its Patented Quiet Hush Mount Design and insulated ducting. You can also decrease the volume simply by adjusting the thermostat to turn the system down. Our team will happily show you how to make these adjustments to ensure that the operation stays quiet even as your system ages.
If your garage fan does ever begin making loud noises or becomes loud enough to be disruptive, this is a red flag and you should address this quickly. Excessively loud noise usually indicates something is wrong with the fan or that it needs a thorough cleaning. Regardless, give us a call and we’ll get it working like new!
Garage fans are extremely easy to clean. Unlike other fans, they do not have as many small parts that can catch and collect dust and debris. They are also made with an easily removable and dishwasher-safe intake grill for quick, easy cleaning. No need to spend hours cleaning your fan, we like to keep it simple!
Be sure to clean your fan on a regular basis, as dust build-up can inhibit performance and cause issues in the long run. This is especially true if you create a lot of dust, smoke, or debris within your garage due to your daily activities. Usually a good, thorough cleaning at the beginning of each season is enough to keep everything in working order. If you need help, we’re just a phone call away!
You sure can! It’s easy to change the temperature in your garage using the fan system and an adjustable thermostat. Before our team leaves your property, we will show you exactly how to work your system, so you can benefit from the best possible performance. There are also online guides available, so you will be able to reference them when needed as well as provide them to future owners when you sell your property.
These systems are very user-friendly and shouldn’t require much maintenance at all. However, if you do have a problem, our team is happy to come pay you a visit. We’ll evaluate the issue and demo the system’s capabilities again if necessary.
We offer different sized fan options to fit in garages of any size. Whether you want a bigger fan to completely eliminate the hot air in your garage or you need something on the smaller size, we can accommodate your needs. We can also assist you in selecting an installation location for optimal performance.
Remember, these fans are designed to be extremely efficient, so size is not a prime factor when it comes to productivity. This simple installation also doesn’t require much cutting or destruction – so it’s a no-mess, no-fuss endeavor! Contact our specialists today to find out what fits your garage best.
Our fans are Fire Rated and made up of UL Listed Components. All fans and accessories we offer come built with high-quality materials specifically designed to withstand hazardous conditions. Instances with extremely hazardous conditions may cause damage, but not to worry! Our team can help repair any damage and get your system back in working order quickly.
All our garage fans have a 10-year product warranty with 5 years on the motor. At The Solar Guys, we always stand behind our products!
