Great for general contractors and roofers who are replacing an old roof and want to offer their customers the option of going green with the Solar Star attic fan. The Solar Star Attic fan qualifies for the 30% Federal tax credit since it uses a solar panel to power the motor. The attic fan can also be installed on existing roofs to provide additional year-round attic ventilation.
In the summer, heat build-up in the attic transfers into your living spaces increasing the temperature in your house and the demand on your air conditioner increasing your utility bills. The Solar Star attic fan will help to reduce air conditioner costs and suppress heat build-up in the attic.
In the winter, the Solar Star will help to reduce heating costs by removing high humidity levels from everyday activities that migrates through the ceiling towards the roof promoting fungal decay, plywood delamination, and insulation saturation from moisture.
A Solar Star attic fan can replace an existing electric attic fan. Attics need protection year round and Solar Star will provide year round protection unlike electric fans which only run when the attic reaches a certain temperature level.
If the customer desires, the Solar Star can be equipped with a optional thermal switch control to start the Attic Fan when the temperature reaches 85 degrees in the attic.
There are multiple ways to mount the Solar Star to maximize the exposure to the sun during the day.
Also available is the Solar Star Gable Fan design.The kit includes 15′ cable for 10-watt solar panel to mount for optimal sun exposure. The gable fan design allows the fan to be mounted inside the attic. A 10-watt solar panel would then be installed on the roof to power the gable fan.
