solar attic fans and gable fans

Solar attic fans and powered vents are a great addition to your home, making it greener and cooler anytime the sun shines

WHY A SOLAR ATTIC FAN

Beyond the current cost savings...

1 Many of the same advantages as a hard-wired attic fan

2 Protects your roof from excessive heat damage

3 Saves on your AC bill as the sun's rays automatically remove hot air from your attic

4 Incredibly quiet operation, as they don't run at night (unless an inverter is used) 

5 Your home is greener and closer to net-zero!

Solar products do have drawbacks, naturally, because they are driven sustainably by the sun.  A hard-wired power vent or gable vent may be more powerful, but they can create more noise and draw on your existing circuits.

Call today so we can help you find the right attic fan solution for you!

The QuietCool powerhouse

Moving 1,320 or 1,486 cubic feet per minute, these are the more powerful alternative to rooftop fans.  In many cases, we can install a gable in your existing wall, creating the perfect solution for tile roofs or those with limited available rooftop space.

The more discreet alternative

Standard solar gable fans leverage existing gable vents and provide just as much cooling power, providing 800-1600 cubic feet per minute of airflow during peak hours of sunshine. These carry a 10-year manufacturer warranty.

Solar power by day, normal power by night

Each QuietCool Solar Attic Fan comes with an AC/DC Inverter that allows your Solar Attic Fan to transition from solar power to electric power as soon as the sun goes down. This innovative solution to nighttime cooling allows our fans to accomplish something other attic fans can not; the ability to keep your attic and home cool 24/7.

Thermal Switch.jpg

Prolong the life of your fan

Attaches to the attic fan motor designed to turn on the natural light solar attic fan when the temperature in the attic reaches approximately 80°F. The thermal switch will turn off the motor when the temperature in the attic reaches 70°F.  This ensures the fan will only run during key, warm days in the winter.
