Solar Powered Gable-Mounted Attic Vent

Solar Power Eco Friendly Product

The Gable-Mount Solar Vent is an exciting alternative to traditional attic ventilation. That's because it is powered by a solar panel that collects energy directly from the sun and converts it into electricity -- naturally -- to power a durable, high efficiency 24-volt DC motor. As a totally solar-powered solution, it's also environmentally friendly.

There’s no electrical hookup or electrical costs ever. It’s easy to install and easy on your wallet! And that means environmentally friendly, budget conscious operation for year-round comfort.

Qualifies for 2009 Energy Tax CreditPainless Installation
The best installation feature is that the fan requires no electrical hook-up. That means no electrician and no complicated wiring is required, making the installation of your attic fan fast and easy.

It mounts in the gable end of the home, behind a decorative shutter (not provided, see below). The solar panel comes with brackets that allow for mounting on the roof.

After the fan and the solar panel are positioned and secured, a simple plug-in from the fan to the solar panel is all that is required.

Smooth Operation
The solar panel collects energy throughout the day under direct sunlight and converts it into "free" power to operate the fan -- providing ventilation during daylight hours, when it's needed most.

It creates up to 800 cubic feet of air movement per minute to remove uncomfortable heat in the summer and damaging moisture in the winter. And, the solar panel is wind-, hail- and impact-resistant to stand up to the elements.



Solar Powered Fan Testimonial

In September 2011, the Whisenhunt family in Longmont, CO wrote Air Vent a letter expressing how pleased they were with the performance of their Air Vent roof-mount solar powered fan they installed near the end of the summer 2010. “We have been comparing our electric usage before and after installation,” they wrote. “The results are that the fan has saved enough in electric bills to nearly pay for the cost of the fan.” The Whisenhunts installed a second roof-mount solar powered fan April 2012. In early September 2012, Air Vent contacted the Whisenhunt family to ask if they had collected any more data since their original letter. They had. The charts below show the kilowatt usage and the average temperatures before and after the installation of the fans. Check out June, July and August 2010 vs. 2011 & 2012.

Note: The Whisenhunt family saved $108.14 in total June-August 2011 vs. the previous year for the same time period. They saved another $82.02 total June-August 2012 vs. the same time frame in 2010 despite higher outdoor temperatures.
