Why is roof ventilation important?
In the colder winter months, moisture from everyday activities inside the house can enter the roof cavity. Without proper ventilation, this moisture promotes mold and mildew, saturates insulation. In the summer, heat from the roof cavity can radiate down into your living area making the air conditioner work harder to cool your home. If air conditioning ducting runs in the attic, a hot attic will superheat the ducting and the conditioned air inside making the air conditioner less efficient.
Does my roof already have ventilation?
Most (but not all) roofs have some form of static ventilation. Static vents or ridge vents will help but generally do not provide sufficient air movement to pull heat and moisture from the attic – especially during the winter or when the ambient air is stagnate.
Is a solar powered roof fan difficult to install?
Solar roof Fans are extremely easy to install. A homeowner can install one in less than an hour and a professional in less than 30 minutes.

  • 'Jordy from SolarBright came to my house and gave me a great price and excellent advice for my solar system. He took all the time in the world to answer all the questions I had. Now the system is up and running and I was happy with the whole process from talking to Jordy, organising with the office right through to the actual install. Installers were friendly, quick and clean. Let the sun shine!!
