Power vents

Attic fans, gable fans, and power vents play a crucial role in home ventilation by releasing the hot, stagnant air stuck in your attic during the summer months, and lingering moisture that can lead to mold during winter. With solar-power and traditional models available, these attic fans and vents optimize your home cooling effects, whether in a garage or space without a contained attic, or working in tandem with a whole house fan or air conditioning system.

Year-round benefits

Remove Winter Mold

During winter your attic vents:

  • Remove excess humidity from indoor spaces

  • Prevent leaks and structural decay caused by ice buildup on your roof

  • Protect insulation and framing materials from moisture accumulation 

  • Fight weakening of internal structures caused by mold and fungal growth

Beat Summer

During summer your attic vents:

  • Expel superheated air from your attic space

  • Promote better cooling effects inside and on the surfaces of your home

  • Protect shingles, roofing,
    insulation and ducts from heat 

  • Cut A/C related energy costs dramatically and make your home more efficient

Know Your Fans

Power vents, gable and attic fans are essentially the same thing, providing identical benefits to your whole house system. 

The main difference between them is the location. A Power vent is installed in an over-sized steel roof vent while a gable fan is installed behind an existing vent on the vertical wall in your attic.


These fans and vents are controlled by a thermostat to expel hot air from your attic space and create the most efficient whole house fan system.

Power vents, attic and gable fans can also cut energy-related costs when used in conjunction with air conditioning or evaporative cooling systems, and prolong the lifespan of your roof.
