When you are ready to have a solar attic fan installed in your home, it is important that you select a qualified, reliable contractor. Choosing a good contractor will help ensure that the installation goes smoothly and that your equipment is installed to the manufacturers specifications.

It is also helpful to know what you can expect on the day of your solar attic fan installation. That way, you can be certain your contractor has everything they need from you, as well as making sure there is someone at the home to ask any remaining questions, sign paperwork or complete the transaction.

On your installation day, it is essential that you make any necessary preparations prior to your installation appointment. While these preparations can be minimal, it will help avoid delays, protect your property and allow for safe working conditions for your contractor.

Selecting an Installation Contractor: Solar Attic Fans

When having a solar attic fan installed, it will only be as good as the company that installs it and stands behind it. Weve compiled a checklist to help you select a company that has the expertise and experience to best meet your needs.

  • Check Credentials. Research the company and reputation by reviewing customer testimonials and references.
  • On-site Evaluation. Anticipate a site-check, so the company understands your needs and can perform a survey of the home and equipment for a custom solution.
  • Check Local and State Licenses. Ask to see applicable licenses, as well as insurance forms for liability and workmens compensation.
  • Qualified Installers. Ask about the training, certifications and screening processes of employees.
  • Warranties. Inquire about the availability of manufacturer warranties to ensure your solar attic fan is covered if it fails.
  • Ask Questions. Ask about the installation process, warranties, financing options, and the pros and cons of the solar attic fan options.
