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.

Customer Reviews

  • 'Solar Bright sales person Roy was the main reason for installing the solar panels at home, he is a very courteous & patient person, who had professional answers to my queries. The panels were installed 1 week earlier than anticipated. The whole installation was done by the end of the day. The system is working very good. Thanks Roy & all the personnel @ Solar Bright.'

  • SolarBright were great to deal with, very efficient company, Installers were polite and did a brilliant job, without any fuss. The new MaxBreeze Zhas shown excellent results in a very short time, we could feel the difference almost immediately with the sensors we have in our ceiling. I have no hesitation in recommending this product to family and friends. Once again thankyou to SolarBright for a professional job well done.

  • Tricky Skylight Install! Great service, especially the installer Sam. We had a tricky install for the skylight with an old house and ornate ceilings. That didn’t stop them. I spoke to the team at the store to clarify details then when he came out he was able to get it installed in under 2 hours - perfect. Thank you.
