Compare SW-AU-R-28 to Bradford’s Maestro Ventilator

Bradford’s Maestro power vent has been dominating the market for roof ventilation for many years! However, Bradford’s Maestro roof ventilators are expensive and times are changing – in today’s environment, a product must be cost-effective and simple to install!

One Maestro exhaust vent really isn’t powerful enough and doesn’t have the capacity to effectively ventilate a roof space of an average house – so for a house, you will need much more than one Edmonds Maestro roof ventilator – meaning multiple costly installations – but in most cases, you can get your roof ventilation job done with just one Solar Whiz roof ventilator!

So, why would you purchase a Bradford Maestro Power Vent – when you can get a Solar Whiz SW-AU-R-28?

• Solar Whiz SW-AU-R-28 has more than 3 times the capacity of an Edmonds roof ventilator.
SW-AU-R-28 is solar-powered, where Edmonds requires a power point in the roof space.
• Bradford’s power vent has an optional solar panel (extra cost associated with purchasing one)– the SW-AU-R-28 is supplied with a PV panel.
• If you don’t already have an available power point in the roof-space, installing the Edmonds will require an electrician, adding to your installation costs.
SW-AU-R-28 exhaust fans do not require an electrician for installation, and they’re DIY friendly, so you don’t need an installer at all!

Why pay more for a Bradford Ventilation Fan when it offers one third of the capacity of our fan?

Don’t just take our word for it! Check out Bradford power vent prices for yourselves to confirm that you will pay at least 25% more for a Bradford’s Maestro roof ventilator than you will for an SW-AU-R-28 solar powered roof ventilation solutions, with twice the airflow capacity.
