Solar Attic Fans
Southwest Florida’s Solar Attic Fan Installation Professionals
If you have experienced a hot summer and own a home in the Southwest Florida area, you may want to consider cooling it with a Solar Powered Roof Fan. Consider this, during the day the hot sun is beating down on your roof causing your attic to heat up while your air conditioning unit is running continuously to cool it off.
It’s no wonder so many homeowners are dealing with high utility bills. Now homeowners have a great opportunity to change all of this by installing solar powered attic fan.
These solar attics fans are a fantastic energy efficient home improvement addition and the perfect time to have these installed is when the roof is being replaced. Consider the benefits of cooling your roof for free powered by the sun for many years to come.

- Longer roofing shingle life span
- Less heat in your attic
- Increased energy efficiency of your A/C Unit

What are solar power vents and how do they help your home?
A solar powered roof vent is an attic ventilation fan running solely off solar power. These types of ventilators fall into the category of active (powered) attic ventilation. They work by pulling in outside air and forcing it through the attic. It then exits out through the attic vent to effectively cool the attic space. This method of attic ventilation is more effective than natural ventilation since the air inside the attic is moved and exchanging this air many more times per an hour with a powered vent than with a passive vent.
What are the cost benefits to installing a solar attic fan?
The amount of money you will save is dependent on the price of electricity in your area, the amount of attic space in your home, the efficiency of your attic insulation as well as the the amount of ventilation your solar attic vent is able to provide. In our experience, a typical installation of a solar vent typically pays for itself in savings within a few seasons of use versus the pricier option of power attics fans that can cost homeowners up to $35 – $85 per month just to run. Solar will end up saving a lot of money for you over time.
