We have one roof vent at each end of our 50 x 15 x 4 gable roof; no eave vents. Will this solar vent product work for us? Should we use a thermostat?
We live in So. Calif., and the home is 100 years old. Vents are on west and east ends of house, and positioned in direction of max. air flow. (Winds from the west.)
Thank you for your question on the model 345SOWW solar operated attic fan. The 345SOWW is designed for attics that are a maximum of 3200 cubic feet and has a minimum of 2 square feet of inlet area. If your attic area meets these specifications, it should work fine for you. You should not need to use an additional thermostat. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.

Can it be hooked up to a battery for night time operation?
I want to install this in a very small church that is off the grid for ventilation. Services take place in the evening so it is important that it will run when it is dark
Thank you for your question on the model 345SOWW solar operated attic ventilator. We have no option to connect a battery to this unit.

Should we put the 345soww near an existing turbine (whirlybird) on the southeast side of our 15 x 50 x 4 gable roof?
We live in San Diego. There is a vent on both the east and west ends of the roof, with wind coming usually from the west.
Thank you for your question on the model 345SOWW solar operated attic ventilator. You would want to mount the 345SOWW near the peak of the roof. If you only have one make up air vent, you want to be at the opposite end of the house. If you have multiple make up air vents, you want to be somewhere in the middle of them. Please contact the Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for further assistance.
