    Benefits of a Solar Powered Attic Ventilator

    All attic ventilators, powered or solar, vent hot air built up within the attic, but a solar unit offers additional benefits not possible with a powered product. Because a BROAN Solar PAV turns on at dawn, it goes to work immediately, first to eliminate the moisture that has built up from the cool overnight air, and second to prevent heat concentration before it has a chance to build up to the point of convection. Rugged, tempered glass withstands large hail and resists delaminating. You don’t need an electrician to install it and you save money on the electric bill because solar ventilators operate on solar energy alone! Plus, you can save even more with a 30% Federal Tax Credit on both the purchase price and installation costs of your Solar Powered Attic Ventilator.

  • 355SOWW is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from wish I had seen this before roofing my house I had to set up the estimates and hire the roofing contractor for my mothers house. It wasn't a big job but since there was no roof vent and improper ridgeventing on top of that all the plywood had to be replaced. I had to make sure to protect her roof this time so I looked at an industrial type, stainless nutone stack fan like I have on my larger house which was about $225 but getting an electrician to wire the fan down to a kill switch in the house to code plus proper, separate breaker was going to cost $300 plus parts, then I found this unit. The roofer agreed to cut a hole and drop it in when he was redoing the plywood so the install cost $0 and he was amazed how strong and quite the fan was so much he got the model number and where I got it and he has sold two more, every job he has done since my mothers house. You get 30% back in the form of a Fed tax rebate this year. If you are in the northern part of the country, like us with dry winters get the optional thermostat control that turns it off when the attic dips under 50*, that will keep some of the attic warmth when you are heating your home and moisture is not an issue, it is Broan # CTW50, they don't have it listed online but if you call a rep they have it at VentingDirect as well. Don't do a roof without one of these or you will regret it, whisper quite, one single fan will vent a normal roof, 30% tax rebate, never need power to drive it during long hot summers, the way I figured it it will pay for itself over a standard electric fan in 3 years!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Going GREEN and starting from the top I am so glad I found this product. It didn't seem right to just install a typical noisy electric fan. This unit is so quiet. When I took the cover off to expose the solar panel it was running full steam and all I heard was a light rushing sound of air. Works great so far keeping our attic cool during these past 90+ degree days. Looks great as well. See photo.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FAN-TASTIC Solar Attic Fan Purchased the Broan 355SO Solar Attic Fan. Customer service at Venting Direct was very helpful in obtaining the new optional thermostat for this unit and having it shipped in the same box from the manufacturer. I watched some install video's on You-tube along with the included instructions making the install in less than 1 hour. 1/2 hour was spent being scared to death on such a high roof. I was a pro after the install. The unit is a great value and construction made real well. I actually had to feel the side of the unit after I took off the cardboard from the solar panel after install to be sure it was working. WOW, "whisper" quite just like they said it would be. I tell everyone about this Broan unit.
