The Natural Choice

Attention to detail makes solar attic fans the natural choice by:

minimizing backpressure of exhausted gases. As the exhaust travels through the vent, it can build up pressure within, making it work less efficiently. Natural Light's engineered design minimizes all obstructions in the flashing and shroud and incorporates an angled throat to facilitate a venturi effect or suction effect to increase airflow.

maximizing the exposure of the sun to the solar panel. Many other fans have the solar panel incorporated into the fan housing, often leaving you to compromize between the best venting location and the best solar exposure direction. Natural Light designed a mounting bracket that not only lets you align the panel to the best solar collection angle, but also allows you to mount it directly to the roof, remote from the fan itself. You can place your vent where you need it most and your panel where it will work the best.

minimizing the ambient temperature of the solar collector. The panel mounting bracket allows for the cooling air circulation aroundthe panel and the entire fan housing is powder coated in a neutral gray to reflect the heat ather than absorb it.

There are several companies that manufacture solar attic fans, but when it comes to quality and performance, no one compares to the Natural Light.

Adjustable Solar Panel
The Natural Light Solar Attic Fan incorporates a high impact photovoltaic solar panel with a 25 year warranty. The panels are available in 4 sizes (10, 20 30 or 50 watt) to accommodate the correct amount of ventilation needed. Natural Light has developed a unique adjustable mounting bracket that allows the solar panel to be positioned in the angle where it will collect the most sunlight to provide optimum fan performance. The mounting bracket also allows air to continually circulate around the solar panel keeping it cool for a consistent output. Many of our competitors offer a fixed solar panel that can hinder the units' performance.

Commercial Pure Grade Aluminum Housing
The solar attic fan housing is constructed of 1100 series, commercial pure grade aluminum with no seams to prevent leaking. Because it is exposed to the harsh effects of the environment on a daily basis, Natural Light powder-coats the unit both inside and out for extra-durability. Many of our competitors either paint only the outside or do not paint the unit at all. Also, many of our competitors use less durable materials to house their attic fans including polypropylene (plastic), sheet metal or galvanized steel.

Powerful, Quiet Direct Current Motor
The Natural Light Solar Attic Fan utilizes a German engineered direct current motor. The motor is precision balanced to achieve low motor vibration and low motor noise. Additionally, the motor sits in an isolation bracket to further ensure a smooth, quiet operation. Each motor undergoes individual motor winding testing to ensure consistent motor performance. Natural Light backs up the solar attic fan motor with a 25 year warranty. Some of our competitors use lower grade motors with much shorter warranties.

5-Wing Fan Blade
Natural Light Solar Attic Fans incorporate a five-wing, precision balanced blade for the highest cfm output. The fan blades are manufactured using a non-corrosive aluminum to withstand all weather conditions. Many of our competition offer only 3 or 4 blades and some are made of plastic.

Protective Animal Screen
The interior of a Natural Light Solar Attic Fan is protected by a stainless steel wire screen mesh. The screen keeps out debris, bugs, birds and small rodents while allowing air to circulate freely. Some of our competitors use lower grade mesh such as plastic or steel that rusts over time.

Commercial Pure Grade Aluminum Flashing
The flashing is extremely important component as it is responsible for keeping your roof from leaking. The Natural Light Solar Attic Fan flashing is constructed of 1100 series, commercial pure grade aluminum with no seams. Its round shape minimizes damage to roof shingles and enables it to withstand the stresses of expansion and contraction due to the temperature variations. Many of our competitors use lower grade galvanized materials or even plastic. Both the flashing and housing are powder-coated inside and out for extra durability. Many of our competitors either paint only the outside or do not paint the unit at all. Also, many of our competitors less durable materials such as polypropylene (plastic), sheet metal or galvanized steel for the flashing of their solar attic fans.

Frequently Asked Questions

solar attic fan photoWhy should I ventilate my attic?

The most obvious reason for attic ventilation is to lower attic space temperature during the warmer months. Attic temperature can exceed 160 degrees Fahrenheit during hot summer days. Proper attic ventilation can reduce those temperature by 50 degrees. No matter how much insulation is in the attic, heat can still transfer into adjacent living spaces. In fact, extra insulation can actually add to temperature increases because heat is trapped in the insulation. Proper ventilation evacuates this excess heat build-up. As the heat is exhausted, the work of the air conditioning system is reduced, thereby, saving energy and extending the life of the air conditioning system.

What about winter, do I need it then?

Yes, Moist air is present in Florida year round. Humidity in attics causes mold and mildew to develop and moist air lingering in the attic spaces can condense on the underside of the roof sheathing and rot it out and also causes mold to develop on the interior walls.

Will ventilation do anything else?

Though asphalt shingles are designed to take the abuse of the sun for many years, they are subjected to greater temperatures when the roof decking is allowed to overheat, which is just what happens in an under ventilated attic. Asphalt shingle manufacturers warranties require proper attic ventilation.
