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, or outside air, reach a certain temperature. Sunrise Solar fans will engage and begin to cool the attic when ambient air reaches 80 degrees. If ambient temperatures fall below 65 degrees, it will shut off, and will rest until the thermostat reads 80 degrees again.

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.

We accepted the "BEST" option that was recommended by Casey Moran to transform our attic. The difference is already evident with the addition of insulation, the radiant barrier, ductwork and a solar attic fan. The pictures speak volumes! I noticed an immediate difference in the airflow to the front bedroom, where we could not keep up with the direct sun for almost the entire day! I had to install a window unit to keep the room livable. This is going to make a huge difference in my energy bill, which was $496, $584 and & $586 for the last 3 months. Ethan and the crew were amazing and left everything clean and tidy! Thank you, Energy Attic for exceptional service!

It was days away from being 10 degrees for a few days and my heater broke. I called Seth at Energy Attic at 9 AM and by 10 AM Andrew from Energy Attic was at my home to evaluate the situation. Andrew was quick to find the problem. The part I needed was not available around town but there was a store that had the part in Fort Worth. Andrew drove to Fort Worth for the part and replaced the part and fixed my heater before 4PM. This is the second time I have called them and they were immediately there to fix my problem at a reasonable price. I will always call them any time I have A/C needs.

We recently had the furnace checkup with Energy Attic. Andrew was prompt, cheerful and proficient. The home service went well. I'd also like to acknowledge Cathy who works on scheduling appointments and answering questions. She's a pleasure to speak with, can usually answer your questions right away. If not, she calls you back when she gets the information.

Woke up on Wednesday morning to water coming through the light fixture in my kids room due to a clogged drain line in our attic A/C. Gave Energy Attic a call and they sent Andrew, an a/c tech, by 2pm. They were prompt, kind, helpful and able to provide multiple options in order to find a solution. I can not recommend them enough. The customer service is off the charts. I will never use another company!

Brent hare was great. He walked me through what he recommended and why... didn't push for more than was needed, but prices out other options just in case. And went out of my way to extend his visit about my ac needs on my request.

We had Energy Attic install a radiant barrier in our home to help reduce the brutal Texas heats impact on our home. Full transparancy we had some issues with the installation vs what we were told during the sales process...which happens sometime. What's important is how Energy Attic handled it...they took care of the issues and even threw in some extras as an apology for the issues which says a lot about them and their drive to ensure the customer is happy. I would recommend them

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.
