- What's Included
The Remington Solar SF25-BLK Solar Attic Fan is a simple and environmentally sensible solution that can protect your home and even save you money with a single 25 Watt unit that can fully vent up to 2,000 square feet, operating at up to 1,600 cubic feet per minute. The solar attic fan is the perfect way to ventilate and improve air circulation in your attic without increasing your electric bill since the fan is powered by free solar energy. Properly venting and circulating the air in your attic helps reduce attic and indoor home temperatures, destructive moisture and mildew build up, and the working load on your HVAC system.
A great feature of the solar attic fan is the pre-installed humidistat and thermostat, which is a $40 value included for free. The humidistat operates above 50% humidity, and is primarily meant for homes in northern climates. The thermostat operates when the temperature is greater than 80°F and automatically turns off when the temperature is less than 80°F. The solar attic fan's solar panel is hail and weather resistant, and is tiltable up to 60 degrees. The solar attic fan runs anytime of the year, especially in the summertime to remove stifling hot attic air, and in the winter to reduce the risk of ice-damming. The solar attic fan helps reduce the amount of work your HVAC system needs to perform to make the home interior climate more comfortable by reducing the gap between the interior home temperature and the desired home temperature.
The Federal tax credit for solar attic fans has been extended through 2016. The Solar Powered Attic Fan is eligible for a 30% (up to $1,500) credit on the purchase price of the fan, installation and sales tax. Check with your tax consultant and county for these potential added benefits.
Adjustable Solar Panel
The solar attic fan incorporates a unique adjustable mounting bracket that allows the solar panel to be positioned at an angle where it will collect the most sunlight to provide optimum fan performance. The fan's angled throat within the flashing provides a "Venturi" effect, which increases airflow.
Remote Solar Panel
An additional remote solar panel (sold separately) can be installed away from the main solar attic fan housing when it is placed in an area with limited sunshine. The remote solar panel is installed in a sunny area to capture the maximum amount of sunlight to achieve optimal attic fan performance.
The solar attic fan includes a wired mesh wildlife guard that keeps out debris, bugs, birds, and small rodents while allowing the air to circulate freely. The wildlife guard is inside the solar attic fan housing right above the neck on the outside of the fan blades.
Powerful, Quiet Direct Current Motor
The solar attic fan comes with a powerful and quiet brushless 24-Volt DC brushless motor. The motor is precision balanced to ensure low maintenance, no brush sparking, high operating speed, high efficiency, and smooth, quiet operation.
