Solar Whiz Commercial Exhaust Fans & Ventilation


Australian businesses often struggle with the relentless summer heat. The need for comfort and a safe work environment creates a demand for powerful and efficient commercial exhaust fans. Traditionally, business owners have steered towards using industrial whirlybirds. However, comparisons show that standard commercial whirlybirds are inefficient and do not meet modern requirements for airflow. Don’t just take our word for it, either.

Many businesses avoid mains-powered industrial exhaust fans because they can be costly to install and operate. Solar Whiz introduced our highly efficient, and free-to-run Solar Whiz Commercial Exhaust Fans to the Australian market in 2014 in response to these problems.

Solar Commercial Exhaust Fans – The Cost-Effective Solution for the Modern Business

“Our workshop is roughly 11,000 cubic metres and has recently had eight SW-RAF10000 units installed primarily to improve the air quality in our 32 vehicle bays. Since installation, our technicians have all reported a significant improvement in airflow and a reduction in workshop fumes. As we are in the tropics, even in winter the units run at full capacity for around 9 hours a day and during this period a slight breeze can be felt throughout the shop. We are waiting the return of summer in order to measure the anticipated reduction in temperatures within the workshop.”

James Thomson (Auto Corner – Mackay)

Since the introduction of solar-based ventilation extraction fans to the Australian market in 2010, businesses around Australia have also been getting on board with solar ventilation. Solar Whiz Commercial brings industrial exhaust fans to a new level of efficiency. Even our higher-end residential models such as the SW-AU-R-40 can compete & compare with the average industrial whirlybird. Furthermore, they are also far easier to install and offer better ventilation results.

Solar Whiz runs entirely on solar power, ensuring that you aren’t spending a single cent on running costs. Even when sunlight isn’t prevalent, or on rainy days, Solar Whiz will still be running! Check out a demonstration here!


Why Use Solar Industrial Exhaust Fans Over Other Technologies?

Solar Whiz Commercial outperforms conventional whirlybirds and even stands shoulder to shoulder with other major brands of powered commercial roof ventilators. Check for yourself here!

In addition, a great option for Solar Whiz Commercial is the ability to ‘top-up’ the solar power from the PV panel with mains power. This keeps the exhaust fan running at full capacity in overcast conditions. The constant current Night Operations Kit also enables you to run Solar Whiz at night—perfect for storage warehouses or factories that generate large amounts of heat or handle sensitive materials.

On top of this, Solar Whiz Commercial Exhaust Fan comes with an adjustable PV panel. This is easily installed on almost any roof type, and adjusted to face North or North West to optimise the operation for your specific requirements. This way you get the most out of your exhaust fan at all times of the day. By keeping warm air out of your industrial or commercial business space, your air conditioning can run far more efficiently.
