Why Install A Solar Ventilation Fan?

Roofs can often reach temperatures of 60°C – 70°C in summer, creating a real challenge when it comes to keeping your home comfortable without spending a fortune on cooling. Ceiling insulation goes a long way to help keep your building stay cool, however, when temperatures soar you need a system that actively pumps the hot air out of your roof cavity, replacing it with fresh air from the outside. The answer is solar vents!

We all know that hot air rises, but it also expands – in all directions. If you have vents in your roof space they will let warm air out. However, vents only work when the roof space is already warm – and the expanding air starts radiating into your home. Solar roof ventilation starts when the sun shines on the roof – and therefore prevents heat from building up in the first place.

Installing a solar powered fan is an effective method of reducing the temperature of your roof cavity, keeping your home more comfortable, and reducing cooling costs.

How to Introduce Fresh Air into Your Home Using Solar Roof Ventilation

The Solar Whiz works like a solar whirlybird. The solar panel powers a fan that actively pumps hot air out of your roof up to 21 times faster than a traditional, wind-powered whirlybird.

A solar-powered roof ventilator can significantly reduce your cooling costs by using solar power to actively pump the hot air out of your ceiling, replacing it with cooler air.
