Comments Off on How difficult is it to install a solar fan?
If you have a basic knowledge of normal construction practices, installation is usually very straight forward. On the installation of rooftop fans, this requires cutting a hole in the roof and correctly fitting the shingles to keep the roof water-tight. On the installation of gable vent fans, the fans are normally mounted inside your attic behind a gable mounted vent at you 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. If you don’t feel comfortable performing these tasks, or if you don’t have a asphalt shingle roof, we recommend that you at least consult a professional roofer or carpenter.
