Essential Info

Are you experiencing high electric bills as a result of continuously running the air condition to keep your home cool? Does your home get unbearably hot because you don't have an air conditioning unit? Sunforce Products offers a solution to both of these issues, among others, with the 12W Solar Attic Vent. The Solar Attic Vent is naturally powered by the sun with its 12 watt amorphous solar panel which installs on the roof of a home. Once installed, the built-in fan will suck out hot air from the attic leaving less heat to filter back into the living areas of a home. The resulting effect is reduced attic temperatures which leads to reduced home temperatures and less dependency on home cooling systems. Another benefit to the 12W Solar Attic Vent is that it will prevent mold and mildew from forming in an attic by removing moist, hot air that leads to the growth of each. The Solar Attic Vent has a ventilating capacity of 850 square feet.

Included with the Solar Attic Vent is a thermal switch which regulates the fans operation when installed (optional). When connected, the thermal switch will automatically shut down the fan when the temperature of the attic is below 64°F (18°C) and activate it when the temperature goes above 75°F (24°C). If the thermal switch is not installed the fan will automatically run whenever the solar panel receives sunlight regardless of what the attic temperature is.
