With the Rand Solar Attic Fan, you will dramatically cut your cooling costs in the summer. Your attic can get hotter than 160 degrees in the summer. This heat works its way into your house, and makes it more difficult to cool it in the summer. With our attic fans, you can cool your attic temperatures by up to 50 degrees! The solar attic fan removes the excess heat from your attic. This means there is less heat to penetrate the rooms below. This keeps your air-conditioner from working overtime, which can result in savings of up to 30% on home cooling costs.
The Rand Solar Attic Fan automatically regulates itself. When the sun is low in the morning, the fan runs slowly. As the Sun gets higher in the sky, your fan will automatically speed up to dissipate the extra heat. So, during the hottest part of the day, your fan is running at its fastest speed. And at night, it automatically shuts off. In addition, we include an 85 degree thermostat already installed! It will turn on the fan anytime your attic is above 85 degrees and there is sun shining. This greatly increases the life of the unit because it will not run when it is not needed.
Our solar attic fans provide needed ventilation to decrease moisture and water vapor in your attic. This, combined with the decreased attic temperature, can increase the longevity of your entire roof system!
Rand Solar Attic Fans are also very user friendly when it comes to installation. It’s a simple do-it-yourself job that is very straightforward, especially if you have a basic knowledge of normal construction practices. On the installation of rooftop attic fans, this requires cutting a hole in the roof and correctly fitting the shingles to keep the roof water-tight. For the rooftop attic fan installation, here is an instructional video to assist you with the installation: http://www.thisoldhouse.com/toh/video/0,,20047003,00.html
As for the gable attic fans, they are normally mounted inside your attic behind a gable mounted vent at your house peak that has fixed position louvers. (They don’t open and close.) The solar panel is then mounted on the roof in good sunlight, and the fasteners must be properly water-proofed.All Rand Solar Attic Fans include a 5 year parts warranty. And, we will endeavor to help you diagnose and repair any problems that you may encounter. Simply email our customer service address if you encounter any issues.
