Ventilate your attic with free, clean, abundant solar energy
U.S. Sunlight’s line of Solar Attic Fans provide the active ventilation your attic needs to reduce the heat build-up that could reach temperatures of 160F and higher. 43% of air conditioning design load is based on high attic temperatures and it’s this heat build-up that can overheat your air conditioning ductwork and raise the temperatures in your home’s living spaces.
The Solar Attic Fan pays for itself quickly with a reduced strain on your air conditioner, a 30% Federal Tax Credit and extending your roof life up to 10%. Adding a Solar Attic Fan provides active circulation and improved airflow to effectively ventilate your attic space and lower the temperature – giving you a cooler house and a more comfortable living environment!.
During the peak summer months, your attic’s temperature can rise to 160° or more. This heat build-up can then raise the temperature inside your home and increase the amount of electricity used by air conditioners and other cooling equipment.
Installing a Solar Attic Fan will help remove the heat build-up in your attic and bring your attic’s temperature down closer to the ambient outside temperature.
The reduction in attic temperature will also benefit the homeowner by preserving and extending the life of the roofing and attic construction materials. Additionally, hot air in your attic can then heat the metal exterior of your HVAC ductwork and consequently heat the air passing through it, causing your air conditioner to work even harder.
In the winter, a typical attic absorbs up to 28 gallons or more of water from the warm, moist air rising from the inside of your home and collides with the cold underside of the roof. U.S. Sunlight Solar Attic Fans provide the air circulation which prevents the moist air from condensing on the surface, keeping your attic drier and helping to prevent mold and mildew from forming inside your attic and from ice damming on your roof.
Moisture in the attic can also lead to other troublesome problems. Humidity can cause saturated insulation, sheetrock pops and truss uplifts, which can cause damage and cracks to the drywall inside your house.
