If you live in a warm, humid climate you’re probably no stranger to uncomfortable living spaces, high electrical bills, and the deterioration of roofing materials (is the sun literally baking your asphalt shingles?) What you may not know is that every one of these potential problems stems from the hellish inferno that is your attic.
The solution? The iSolar 40W-INT Solar Attic Fan.
This powerful one-piece unit, engineered to regulate attic temperatures in tropical climates, is quickly becoming a popular and cost-effective way for Florida homeowners to cool their home, prolong the life of their roof, and save money on their electric bills.
Read on to learn more about how a solar attic fan can benefit your Florida home:
Q: “Our home gets extremely hot from the Florida sun, and it seems like our air conditioner can never keep up with the heat and humidity. Will your solar attic fan help?”
Temperatures in Florida and other southern climates are brutal for both your pocketbook and your air-conditioner. A solar attic fan, powered by the sun, is a great way to regulate the temperature in your attic, prolong the life of your roof structure, and reduce your reliance on expensive air conditioning (a solar attic fan can help you save on air conditioner costs). Proper attic ventilation also guards against the build-up of humidity and moisture which can lead to rot, mildew, and mold.
Q: “My Florida home already has an air exchange system. Isn’t that enough?”
If you pay your attic a visit in the heat of summer, you may be surprised by how hot it gets up there! Attic temperatures can exceed 160 degrees depending on where you live, and although all homes are fitted with passive ventilation systems, air exchange systems cannot provide enough pressure to move hot air out of the attic. Passive attic venting also relies on continuous exterior air flow to regulate attic temperatures. On hot, airless days, heat builds up in the attic which puts an additional load on air-conditioners and racks up utility bills.
Q: “How well do your Solar Attic Fans stand up to hurricanes and harsh weather conditions?”
The iSolar 40W-INT solar attic fan has been engineered to withstand harsh weather and intense wind load pressures and includes a fan motor that is both waterproof and dustproof.
Q: “What is the venting capacity of 40W-INT solar attic fan?”
The 40W-INT’s powerful 40-watt solar panel and high-efficiency fan motor delivers 1092 CFM of airflow under full sun exposure, keeping air moving in your attic on the hottest Florida summer days.
Q: “I’m a contractor in Florida and install solar attic fans. Will your fans rust when installed in coastal areas?”
iSolar products are professional-grade manufactured and are composed of a strong galvanized steel unibody fan casing and finished with an anti-UV powder coating to protect it from heat and UV exposure. The iSolar attic fan also offers an industry leading 20-year warranty and is endorsed by HGTV ‘Renovation Island’ ‘Island of Bryan’ superstar Bryan Baeumler, who recently installed twenty iSolar 20W106-FLEX fans at his Bahama’s resort, Caerula Mar.
Q: Are there any federal tax credits available?
Having a solar powered attic fan installed on your home can help you save money on your federal tax return. Our line of solar powered attic fans are eligible for 26% (2020) of the total installed cost of residential solar attic fans.
