The technology has no moving parts other than the ventilation fan, so it lasts for decades. Maintenance requirements are very minimal due to the simplicity of the technology.
Letting your attic breathe is an important part of maintaining a healthy and energy-efficient home.
As the sun heats your roof throughout the day, attic temperatures can reach over 60 degrees in the summer without proper ventilation. When your attic cannot breathe, the resulting trapped heat and moisture can cause numerous problems including higher electric bills, mould outbreaks, and ultimately the deterioration of your roof over time.
Solar ventilation fans offer the perfect solution to this ventilation problem by continuously removing attic heat and moisture throughout the day, and do so for absolutely no cost of operation. working as a self-regulating system with your attic, the more intensely the sun beats down on your roof, the faster our fans remove hot air to cool your attic. When your attic is cooler, everything in your attic just works better.
Collectors come in different sizes. The size and number of collectors you’ll install depends on how much sunshine your roof gets and how much hot water you use in your home. They are also made in two styles: flat plate and evacuated tube.
Flat plate collectors are generally less expensive, but can capture less sunlight and are less efficient in colder conditions.
Evacuated tube collectors take up less space on your roof, but are heavier and more fragile.
