Solar-powered attic fans go by other names, such as:
Is a hot attic making your house uncomfortable and driving up your air-conditioning costs? This is a common problem throughout the southeastern U.S., and in many other parts of the country, too. On a sunny summer day, the temperature inside an attic can exceed 140 degrees. In a typical house, there may be only a few inches of attic insulation and some ½-in.-thick drywall separating that 140-degree attic from your living space. No wonder you have some rooms that are too hot!
Putting extra pressure on your air-conditioning system to overcome a super-hot attic isn’t a smart solution. Extending your AC run time will drive up your electric bill, while also making some parts of your house too cold. Since the sun is causing the problem, why not let the sun be part of the solution? Installing a solar-powered attic fan can help lower attic temperatures by improving attic ventilation. Once installed, your solar attic fan operates for free, powered by the sun.
A solar-powered attic can be mounted on your roof, or on the gable- end of your house. Advanced models have a built-in thermostat that automatically turns the fan on and off at a specific attic temperatures.
