SOLAR STAR solar attic fans the ideal "run-by-the sun" attic ventilation solution for year-round protection against damaging heat and moisture.

Make Your Home More Comfortable

The SOLAR STAR SOLAR ATTIC FAN CAN IMPROVE ANY ATTIC SITUATION

As you know, living in Florida means lots of sunshine and lots of fun! Yet, there are times -– especially in the summer – when it just gets too hot and sticky with 90-degree temperatures and thick humidity in the air. Often times, we can escape into the comfort of our air conditioned homes, but what about the areas of our home that are not air conditioned or properly insulated? Especially our attics. They tend to trap solar heat that enters the roof and has no where to go. It then transfers into our living space, requiring us to bump up that thermostat while sending our utility bills soaring. Plus, many of today’s homes are built with insufficient ventilation and air exchange systems. This causes the high humidity levels in Florida to migrate through the ceiling where it becomes trapped – saturating the insulation and promoting fungal decay and plywood delamination. And the best part is, it’s powered by the sun, so there is no additional electricity used.

    Suppress Heat Buildup

    A hot attic acts like a giant radiator, transferring heat into your living spaces, sending both utility bills and temperatures soaring. The Solar Star solar attic fan also helps reduce the cost of high AC bills and lowers the maintenance required on the AC unit itself. While costing nothing to operate the solar attic fans increase the lifespan of the AC unit, attic insulation, shingles, and any valuables stored in the attic.


    Solar Star Roof Mount Vents draws hot air and moisture out of the attic and discharges it to the exterior.

    Battle Moisture

    Many of today's houses have insufficient ventilation and air exchange, causing high humidity level from everyday activities. The moisture migrates through the ceiling towards the roof where it comes into contact with the cold structure. Here, frost forms, causing damage to your roof structure. Moisture can also saturate insulation, promote fungal decay and plywood delamination.

    • Reduces cooling & heating costs
    • Reduces damaging humidity & condensation
    • Protects insulation from moisture saturation
    • Fights mold and fungal decay

     Unit comes fully assembled and installs in less than 30 minutes. Whisper quiet motor. No costly electrical hook ups because it's powered by the built-in photovoltaic power source. Stainless steel mounting screws. Non-corrosive polymeric integral exhaust screen. Lightweight polymeric fan blade minimizes motor resistance and is no-corrosive. Leak-proof, seamless one-piece flashing. Solar Star Roof Mount Vent draws hot air and moisture out of the attic and discharges it to the exterior.

    Garage Cooling / Ventilation Fan

       
     


    The Problem

    In hot climates, garage temperatures may be 20 degrees or higher than outside temperatures.

    Because of these high temperatures, the garage acts as a super-large radiant heater, forcing the air conditioner to work harder and use more electricity.

     

    The Solution

    Cooling the garage will help lower the air conditioner load and reduce energy consumption.

    The GF-14 garage cooling fan pulls outside air through vents in the garage door and exhausts it out through the attic.

    Additionally, the GF-14 helps keep stored garage items in good condition by creating continuous air circulation throughout the garage.

    - Balances Indoor / Outdoor Temperatures

     

    - Effective for a Typical Two / Three Car Garage
