What if there was a way to improve home comfort and ease the load on your air-conditioner without spending a fortune?
There is, and it’s called a Solar-Powered Attic Fan!
On hot summer days, the sun beats down on the roof of your home, radiating heat into the attic and down to the living space. This unwanted heat gain forces your air-conditioner to work even harder to cool your home, increasing electricity bills and causing your cooling system to wear down faster than it normally would.

A comfortable home doesn’t have to equal an empty wallet!
The two 40W-INT solar-powered units (seen above) installed on this homeowner’s roof in Florida will significantly remove the hot air from the attic year-round (at no additional cost to the homeowner!) While most homes have passive vents, they are not strong enough to make any real impact on home comfort levels. The iSolar 40W-INT fan, fitted with a powerful 20V motor and delivering almost 1200 CFM improves attic ventilation by expelling hot, moist air whilst introducing cool, drier air into the space. This drop in attic temperature significantly reduces the demand on your air-conditioner and will result in real electricity savings.
As even moderate summer climates can increase the temperature of your attic to over 65°C (150°F), homes that don’t experience tropical heat waves can also benefit from a solar-powered attic fan. Our Canadian customers have enjoyed reduced moisture levels and heat build-up in the attic in their homes and cottages year-round.
iSolar offers solar-powered attic fans ranging from 250 CFM to 1125 CFM (hourly average in direct sunlight) that can be used for a range of home applications in addition to attics including greenhouses, sunrooms, garages, detached studios, golf course washrooms, fishing huts, portable toilets and sheds.
