Energy-Efficient Home Ventilation Animations
SEE HOW OUR VENTILATION PRINCIPLES WORK IN THESE ANIMATIONS
Below are a few different animations and diagrams to help you understand the different methods of ventilating your home for the best possible impact
Have a read of our ‘2022 Cost of Operation Fact-Sheet‘ document to see how Solar Whiz helps you keep cool while saving money!
How can I make my air conditioner more energy-efficient?
The Solar Whiz roof vent and extractor fan are among the simplest and most effective solar cooling solutions. Solar ventilation gives you the best return on investment of any house cooling device and it is free to run and operate! Additionally, Solar Whiz boosts the performance of your airconditioning, helping you secure cost-effective and energy-efficient home cooling.
1. Standard roof ventilation installation with eave vents
A Solar Whiz ventilates best by drawing cooler ambient air from outside, into & through your roof space. The above animation shows a standard roof ventilation set-up with a Solar Whiz roof ventilator drawing replacement air in through eave vents for effective roof space ventilation. Eave vents bring in fresh, cool air from outside to refresh your roof space and reduce heat loads.
Standard roof ventilation installation with air conditioner unit
Solar Whiz roof ventilation reduces the heat load on your ceiling, helping you to save energy because your air conditioner doesn’t have to work as hard to cool your home. You may use your air conditioner less over summer, as a result of ventilating with Solar Whiz – saving you energy and money!
2. Heat removal from the interior via vents
A Solar Whiz can also extract heat out of rooms via ceiling vents. The above animation ventilating a roof with a Solar Whiz roof ventilator drawing replacement air from rooms via ceiling vents for effective roof space ventilation – as well as heat extraction.
Ceiling vents are great for double-storey homes in the rooms upstairs that get hotter than downstairs and may have less fresh, outside replacement air available. No tubing or difficult installation is necessary for heat extraction with interior vents. Heat extraction with a solar exhaust fan will keep your upstairs rooms more comfortable and cool during hot days, making your upstairs areas enjoyable all year round.
3. Direct Heat Extraction and Removal via Ducts

A Solar Whiz can also ventilate air through your roof via ducting. The animation above shows heat extraction with a Solar Whiz heat extractor/solar vent removing hot air directly from rooms via ceiling vents for energy-saving home cooling and/or home ventilation assisting in mould prevention.
