SOLAR ATTIC VENTILATION
RM LaPlace Installation’s solar attic fans are a natural, cost effective way to help your customer’s homes be more comfortable and efficient. A well ventilated attic will keep the attic more temperate & dry, which keeps the home more comfortable, thus requiring less use of the heating and cooling system. Installing a solar fan results in a more comfortable home and lower energy bills. Every home should have proper attic ventilation with solar fans, and because our solar attic fans rely on the sun, they require $0 to run. Plus all of our solar attic fans include a lifetime warranty

Benefits of a Solar Attic Fan

A Solar fan can extend the life of the roof and A/C system
Solar Fans reduce moisture which reduces mold & mildew
Solar Fans Increase air exchanges (per hour)
There is no cost to operate a solar attic fan
Solar Fans qualify for the 26% Federal Tax Credit Program
Our solar fan is extreme weather ready with aluminum
components and stainless steel fasteners
The purpose of a solar fan is to reduce temperatures inside the
attic and other enclosed spaces throughout the year. In the summer
this helps make the living areas more comfortable and reduces HVAC
usage, adding to its lifespan and saving energy. Solar fans also help reduce heat which can cause deterioration of shingles, roof boards, sheathing, siding, insulation and valuables stored in the attic.
In the winter solar fans help to prevent moist air from condensing on the underside of the roof, beams, and rafters. Condensation can cause mildew, rotting of wood, and excessive rusting of some components of the roof structure. Solar fans help keep the attic dry.
Our 30 Watt solar attic fan is a simple solution to a hot, under ventilated attic. It is available in roof mount and gable mount and is incredibly easy to install.
What If the Roof Has Ridge Vents?
Ridge Vents are known as passive vents. While they do allow air to move out of the attic, there is not nearly enough air movement to actively cool the attic. And when installed properly ridge vents will NOT get in the way of our solar fan working properly. The chart below shows the attic temperatures when using ridge vents vs solar attic fans.
