SolarKing Solar Roof Ventilation Exhaust Fan
Australian summers continue to get hotter and so do our homes and workplaces. A great solution to tackle this is Solar Roof Ventilation.
By replacing the hot air in your roof space in summer with the cooler outside air, Solar Roof Ventilation make your home much cooler and a big difference to your indoor comfort level.
How does the Solar Fan Work?
If you’ve ever been in your roof during the warmer months, you know just how hot the space can get. The sun beats down on the roof surface and heats up the stagnant air inside the roof. Building codes require homes to have a passive vent system. Insulation can only do so much before the heat also is too much for the roof bats. That’s where a motorized fan comes in.
The SolarKing Fan placed high on the roof will pull air in from outside, force the cooler air to move through the entire roof space and escape through the SolarKing solar fan. In summer months, SolarKing Fan can reduce the temperature in a roof by up to 30 degrees.
In the hot Australian summer the SolarKing Exhaust Fan extracts the dry and hot air in the roof. 20x more air than a wind driven Whirly Bird and can reduce roof temperatures by up to 30°.
During the cooler months, the thermostatic control of SolarKing Exhaust Fan prevents heat loss and retaining much needed warmth unlike whirly birds that continue to run.
The SolarKing Exhaust Fan consumes free solar energy, which means no running cost ever.
Also by reducing your roof temperature, your reliance on air conditioning will reduce and lower your energy bills.
The SolarKing Exhaust Fan can be self-installed or you can use one of our approved installers to do the job for you. The unit just required 1 roof tile to be removed for installation or for metal roof’s just a 300mm opening.
The brushless DC motor makes the operation quiet and assures the motor will have long life. Being brushless it is also far more efficient compared to other motors so the performance is better.
Australian summers continue to get hotter and so do our homes and workplaces. A great solution to tackle this is Solar Roof Ventilation. Have you ever noticed how the lower storey of a 2 storey house is much cooler than other parts of the house? This is due to the ceiling directly above blocking the extreme heat from the lower level. The SolarKing Solar Roof ventilation fan does the same job, by replacing the hot air in your roof space in summer with the cooler outside air. This makes a big difference to your indoor comfort level. Australian summer temperatures inside your roof can often reach between 50°C to 70°C, with much of this heat then entering your living spaces.
Currently, wind driven “Whirly Birds” can only exhaust around 100CBM (Cubic Metres) of air per hour while the SolarKing 320MM solar fan can pump 2100CBM of air per hour, more than 20x the air movement. This makes the SolarKing far more effective keeping your home or business cooler. You can even use multiple SolarKings on larger or two storey homes.
The SolarKing 320MM Solar Fan can be easily mounted on either tile, Colorbond or flat roofs. The unit also has an adjustable tilt solar panel for use on non north facing roofs or flat roofs.
