Save Money • Breathe Clean Air • Sleep Well

Make Your Home Comfortable…Save Up to 40% on Your Energy Bill.

Solar-Powered Attic Ventilation Fans

We use a 3-part Energy Reduction System (ERS System) to make your home or office as energy efficient as possible, save you money on heating and cooling costs, reduce your carbon footprint on the environment and improve indoor air quality.

We provide long-term, real solutions that increase your home’s sustainability and protect your family throughout the year.

All SunRise™ Solar Fans come fully assembled and can be installed in under an hour.

No electrical hookup needed!

Proper attic ventilation will:

  • Extend your roof’s life
  • Save you money on air conditioning
  • Reduce the chance of ice damming
  • Make your home more comfortable
  • Prevent mold growth and fungal decay

All without costing you a penny to operate

Example:

  • Attic temperature rises to 80° and fan turns on.
  • Once it cools to 65° the fan will shut off.
  • If evening comes and temp does not fall below 65° to reset the switch, then the unit will start the next morning at sunrise and continue to cool the attic.
  • If the attic temp falls below 65° at night, then the switch will shut off and will not turn the unit on again until attic temp reaches 80°.

SunRise™ Solar Fans can save you on your cooling costs!

Attic ventilation is essential to a comfortable living space, and can make a big impact on your finances too. Energy Attic provides a total attic solution that includes your home's attic ventilation needs. 

We know that your solar ventilation will only be as durable as the installation, and we have the experience and training that it takes to provide accurate measurements and secure results. We don’t skip steps and get the job done right the first time to ensure that we exceed your expectations. Solar ventilation is designed to improve your home and quality of life, and it’s an industry we’re proud to be a part of.

How Solar Ventilation Fans Work

Solar ventilation fans are designed to turn on when your attic reaches a certain temperature. For example, if you have set your system to turn on once the temperature in your attic reached 80 degrees, it will kick on and begin to cool the attic. After it has reached a cooler temperature that you have designated, such as 65 degrees, the fan will shut off. The solar ventilation system will continue to blow in the morning if the temperature has not yet reached 65 degrees but will shut off when it reached this temperature and won’t turn on again until the temperature in the attic is back to 80 degrees.

It is designed to suck the heat out of the attic and lower attic temperatures by as much as 50 degrees! Less heat in your attic means less work for your AC unit, allowing you to save as much as 30 percent of your cooling costs in summer. These systems are electricity free and can be installed in under an hour! Extend the life of your roof and save money with a solar ventilation system.

Attic Ventilation Protects Your Home

Expelling warm air is also a great way to prevent moisture in the attic and keep mold and mildew from growing. In winter, equalizing the temperature in both the home and attic is a great way to avoid ice dams forming, which could cost thousands of dollars in potential repairs to the roof.

As moisture levels rise in spaces like the attic, they can do some pretty expensive damage to the structure of your roof and the wood that surrounds your home. Solar ventilation will help combat that moisture build-up so that your home stays dry and doesn’t end up causing weak spots that could have been prevented. When in need of solar ventilation, our clients count on us to install with the precision that prevents unnecessary home improvement repairs due to excess moisture levels.

The SunRise™ is a unique, solar-powered vent fan that pulls the heat right out of your attic. It's so effective it can lower attic temperatures by as much as 50°! It is a great compliment to Energy Attic Aluminum Foil flushing the heat from the aluminum with the air movement created by the fan.

This means less heat dissipating back into your living area, less drain on your air conditioning system, and less cost to you. In fact, up to 30% less money spent on air conditioning costs alone!

In the wintertime, the SunRise™ helps equalize the temperature between the attic inside and the outside air. This dramatically reduces the risk of ice dams forming at the eaves – a feature that could save you thousands.

Reduces moisture build-up and prolongs the life of your roof. Even in newer homes that use vapor barriers, moisture can still sneak into the attic and condense on framing boards, roof decking, and insulation.

The problem may be even worse in older homes that have settled and developed cracks or air leaks around bathroom exhaust fans or light fixtures.

SunRise™ forcibly expels this warm, moist air, helping prevent the growth of mold and mildew, and significantly reducing the chance of rotting the roofing materials.

Just one SunRise™ Solar Fan is powerful enough to protect an entire home

SunRise™ uses the most advanced solar panels to collect and deliver power directly from the sun to our highly efficient 12-volt DC motor inside the power vent. With its 12”, balanced-hub, aluminum fan blade, the SunRise™ forcibly expels hot air, providing fresh, cool air to keep your attic from overheating! Our tough, weather-resistant panels collect solar energy even in reduced light and poor weather conditions and provide maximum cooling effect when it’s needed most -- in the middle of the day. The SunRise fans operate without fuel, waste, or pollution and are wind, hail, and impact resistant.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between solar fans and turbines?

While attic ventilation is essential to your home, several different types can be used.  Some work well together, and others do not. It would help if you always spoke with an expert before installing this system in your home. Learn more.

How should I properly ventilate my attic?

We would use solar fans. The brand we use is SunRise solar fans because they are made in the U.S. Solar fans rely on the sun, not the wind, to function correctly. Learn more.

All of our services are designed to improve insulation, ventilation, air quality, and energy savings. We offer a comprehensive package of attic services so that you only have to work with one company.

How do I know if I have enough, or can I have TOO MUCH attic ventilation?

A balance between intake and exhaust is important. Analyze how many soffit or gable vents you have to ensure enough air coming into your attic to supply a powered roof vent or generate movement with a turbine. Learn more.
