Product Description

The Solar Attic Fan is a simple and environmentally sensible solution that can save you money. Powered completely by free solar energy, this sleek and efficient vent is both compact and quiet. Fully operational right from the box, it installs easily, with no electrical wiring, no expensive electrician and city permits. And let’s not forget powerful! Operating at a whopping 850 cfm in full sun, a single solar attic fan unit can vent up to 1200 square feet. Place it wherever you need improved circulation: attics, lofts, workshops, storage sheds, garages, even barns.

Critical Factors which impact solar powered attic fans that are unique to our product:

  • Minimize backpressure of exhaust gases. Natural Light Energy Systems Solar Attic Fan incorporates an angled throat within the flashing design that provides a venturi effect, increasing airflow. The Natural Light Energy Systems Solar Attic Fan was designed from the ground up to minimize obstructions in the flashing and shroud.
  • Maximize the exposure of the sun to the solar panel. The Natural Light Energy Systems Solar Attic Fan is designed with an adjustable mounting bracket which holds the solar panel that allows for angling the panel for maximal exposure to the suns rays. The mounting bracket also allows for remote mounting of the solar panel and for optimal panel / flashing placement on any roof.
  • Minimizes the ambient temperature of the solar panel: Because power output of any solar panel rapidly declines as temperature increases, having air circulating around the panel gives the best performance possible. By adjusting the panel up off the lid, the solar panel mounting bracket allows for an envelope of cool air to continually circulate around the entire solar panel! Natural Light also powder coats the entire solar attic fan assembly in a neutral gray color ensuring that the lid of the solar attic fan does not act as a heat sink which would increase the temperature of the solar panel.
  • Adaptable to any location, roof type, in any environment.

Benefits of Attic Venting

  • Extends the Life of your Roof…Venting reduces heat build-up on your roof shingles and under layment.
  • Reduces the Load on your HVAC System…In hot summer months, an attic vent saves money on your electric bills and reduces wear on your AC unit.
  • Prevents Damaging Ice Damming… In cold winter months, attic air circulation slows the snow melting on the roof and refreezing as ice at the eaves.
  • Reduces Moisture Build-up in the Attic…Excessive moisture trapped in the attic causes a variety of problems including rust, wood rot and attic insulation damage. Reducing moisture also eliminates the growth of mold and fungus which can cause respiratory problems
  • Increases Fresh Air Circulation…Attic fans reduce vapor buildup generated by every day activities such as showering and cooking.

Thanks to the industry’s leading manufacturers of solar panels (BP), low voltage DC motors and the use of high quality materials and precise construction techniques employed by Natural Light, the solar attic fan is covered by an industry leading 25 Year Warranty on the housing, 10 years on the panel and 5 years on the motor.

    We had our Garage exhaust fan and bug-proof door vents installed. Using your advice we used a timer rather than a thermostat to control its operation. In addition to keeping the garage to a temperature at 78- to 80 degrees F rather than the 90- to 95 degree F without the fan, our office above the garage now is remarkably cooler. Prior to the garage fan I installed a ceiling fan to help with the warmer room temperature in the office; it helped but even with bumping up the air conditioning the office remained the warmest room in the house. Now with the garage exhaust fan, the office temperature now has equaled to that of the rest of the house.
    Moreover, our attic area, at temperatures in excess of 100 degrees F in Atlanta’s long summers kept our bonus room’s air conditioning unit running most of the daylight hours. At a home show we saw and contracted for a thermal-reflective insulated covering inside the attic that reduced the attic temperature to the upper 90’s. Although we had static “turtle” vents along the length of the roof, the heat seemed to simply hang in the attic area on either side of the bonus room. Following our conversation about the solar-powered exhaust fans, we opted for two of the units, one on each side of the bonus room. Since the installation of the solar fans the greatest temperature, and I’ve been monitoring to determine the fans’ efficacy, is 78 degrees F. What I found fascinating was rather than function from a thermostat the solar fans increase and decrease velocity with the intensity of the Sun’s rays. My wife initially complained that the fans weren’t working because she couldn’t hear them from the bonus room, I had to check them myself. Both were running at a rapid speed without a sound, and while in the attic a temperature check revealed the attic temperature at 78 degrees F. Because it is late in the season, we are encouraged for the coming year already experiencing a 10 degree reduction in the garage and an even greater temperature loss in our attic area. Our installer commented throughout the installation process on the ease of installation, quality of the fans and components, and wants to include similar equipment on a rehab project he has planned.
