When you are looking to have a solar attic fan installed in your home, it is important that the appropriate product selection is made.
Appearance and functionality of solar attic fans can vary based on manufacturer and model. They come in various shapes, sizes and colors.
Solar attic fans can be roof mounted, curb mounted or gable mounted. A knowledgeable sales consultant will be able to determine which mount best fits your needs and if more than one fan is needed. This is based on whether your home has a flat roof or a pitched roof, the actual pitch of the roof, as well as the square footage of your attic.
In order to provide sufficient ventilation, a solar attic fan with the appropriate venting capacity should be selected. Venting capacity is determined by the size of the solar panel. For residential models, solar panel size typically ranges from 10 watts to 50 watts. Your sales consultant will establish the correct size unit required for your home.
In addition, there are other factors which are important to consider when purchasing a solar attic fan, such as efficiency, material quality and warranty.
