HOW IT WORKS
Rather than bringing in fresh air from the inside of the home like a whole house fan, for instance, an attic fan is a specific type of fan designed to remove the hot, stale air from the attic of a home. You will feel the benefit of this fan mostly on your cooling bill. Since attic fans remove the hottest air in the home, your air conditioner will be more efficient and you may be able to run it less while still effectively cooling your home.
SOLAR + INVERTER = 24/7 COOLING
Each QuietCool Solar Attic Fan comes with an AC/DC Inverter that allows your Solar Attic Fan to transition from solar power to electric power as soon as the sun goes down. This innovative solution to nighttime cooling allows our fans to accomplish something other attic fans can not; the ability to keep your attic and home cool 24/7.
