How Solar Attic Fans Can Protect Your Finances In Retirement

Two solar attic fans mounted on a roof.

Runaway inflation has made staying financially afloat tougher than ever for seniors on a fixed income. Fortunately, solar attic fans offer an innovative solution which lowers living expenses while warding off costly home repairs.

The simple act of keeping a roof over one’s head has become one of the biggest pressures for homeowners over 65. Faced with soaring electricity bills and surging bills for repairs, pensioners are counting home maintenance as one of their top pressures. Overall, more and more seniors are feeling pessimistic about their ability to stay financially afloat in the years ahead.

The sobering realities of living on a fixed income are huge incentives to find ways of cutting down on living expenses, and the probability of encountering a major financial emergency.

In both these areas, solar attic fans can help by driving down electricity costs and warding off unexpected home repairs stemming from mold, moisture and rot.


During the cold winter months, dangerous ice dams are one of the most common causes of water damage in roofs. These tend to form when falling snow contacts a home’s warm roof. Upon melting, the runoff then refreezes in the eaves. This blocks further runoff from draining properly, causing the water to seep back underneath the shingles and into the attic. Over time, water damage will lead to rot, mildew and mold.

Solar attic fans, like iSolar Solutions’ bestselling 20W106-FLEX, keep your attics dry by constantly ventilating warm air outside. This keeps the roof’s surface cool, drastically reducing the risk of repairs which can cause unwelcome and unexpected financial emergencies.

In the summer months, solar attic fans push out rising hot, humid air that gets trapped in a home’s attic. The buildup of heat causes home air conditioning systems to work harder to keep the whole house cool. This causes more air conditioner wear and higher electricity costs. Although most modern homes are built with vents, these are often passive vents that are not mechanized. As such, they may lack enough power to adequately ventilate an attic.

Solar attic fans give these passive vents a much-needed boost in the summer. They switch on automatically while passive vents are not achieving proper ventilation. Because solar attic fans are not attached to the local electricity grid, no extra costs are added to your home’s electricity bill. At the same time, they cut the load on a home’s air conditioner, and reduce strain on air conditioning units.


Solar attic fans have no complicated wiring, so there is no need for you to hire an electrician. Roofers or general home contractors can do the job in most cases. For retirees in good physical shape with home maintenance know-how, installation instructions are also available on the iSolar Solutions’ website. A solar attic fan can be installed in as little as 15 minutes. All of iSolar Solutions’ products come with a limited 20-year warranty for added peace of mind.
