What Is Energy Efficiency? 

A solar attic fan is efficient since it is driven only by solar energy and does not need the use of electricity. Utilizing sustainable solar technology to power the equipment in your house allows you to save both energy and money while also promoting environmental awareness and protecting the environment. 

The efficiency of solar attic fans may allow you to qualify for Federal Solar Tax Credits under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

What Is The Material Of The Product?

It is preferred that the most desired equipment has the greatest degree of safety possible and is composed of long-lasting materials. As a result, you will have equipment that will endure for a long time and will keep your house warm and secure. 

The following high-quality materials are utilized in the manufacturing of solar attic fans:

Solar panel with a high impact and that can be adjusted
Housing made of seamless, commercial-grade metal that has been powder-coated
Motor has direct current, extended life, and low noise
The fan blade is composed of non-corrosive metal
Bug screen made of stainless steel for protection
Flashing made of seamless, commercial-grade metal that has been powder-coated

Warranty

Having the option of purchasing a manufacturer’s warranty, or a dealer’s warranty, is frequently a helpful choice since it may give parts coverage in the event that equipment breaks. In the event of equipment failure, the peace-of-mind protection is quite beneficial. The length of a manufacturer’s warranty might vary. 

A respectable manufacturer will stand behind the quality and workmanship of your solar attic fan and will provide a warranty. A warranty should cover any manufacturer’s flaws and should be conditional on the installation being done correctly. Check with your contractor after your solar attic fan has been installed to confirm that your new unit has been registered for the warranty.

Is a Solar or Electric Attic Fan Better?

Solar-powered fans operate on the principle of a tiny photovoltaic solar panel supplying electricity to a small motor. There is a difference between their capacity and that of many electric fans, which is between 800 and 1200 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute).

Because they function without the use of grid power, they may help you save money.

Yet another big benefit of using solar attic fans rather than electric fans is that they do not need wiring, making them far simpler to install. Solar attic fans come with a built in pre rated thermostat to tell the fan when to come on and off. One of the most common questions asked is if the solar attic fans run all the time? Yes, they run all throughout the day but you will need an inverter if you want to take advantage of the night time cooling. Only a few manufacturers include the inverters with their product.

A solar attic fan with an independent solar panel is included.

Some versions include a solar panel that is attached independently, with a bracket that allows the panel to be angled as squarely toward the sun as possible.

Electric attic fans may be purchased for $50-$300 on the internet, while solar attic fans can cost $200-$400 or more.
