Solar Roof Ventilation

Solar powered attic ventilators use the sun’s energy to operate which could save you hundreds of dollars each year. Solar roof ventilators operate without fuel, waste, or pollution, so they earn points towards Green building.

Attic and roof ventilation is necessary to keep your attic cool in the summer, but proper ventilation can extend the life of your roof and attic structures saving you hundreds of dollars in repairs over the lifetime of your roof. In the heat of a North Dallas summer, normal air circulation and the natural convection process (passive ventilation) may not be sufficient to reduce the temperature to a level where you begin to see benefits. Most Texas homes could benefit from a forced air ventilation system. With the abundance of sunlight in the Dallas area and higher electricity costs most homes would benefit form having solar roof vents installed.
