If you've ever been in your roof during the warmer months, you know just how hot the space can get. The sun beats down on the roof surface and heats up the stagnant air inside the roof. Building codes require homes to have a passive vent system. Insulation can only do so much before the heat also is too much for the roof bats. That's where a motorized fan comes in.
The SolarKing Fan placed high on the roof will pull air in from outside, force the cooler air to move through the entire roof space and escape through the SolarKing solar fan. In summer months, SolarKing Fan can reduce the temperature in a roof by up to 30 degrees.
Australian summers continue to get hotter and so do our homes. A great way to make your home or business cooler in summer is to use solar roof ventilation like the SolarKing solar fan. Roof temperatures in Australia during summer often reach 50 to 70°C and the best way to reduce these high temperatures in to install the SolarKing roof fan
Many homes already wind driven “whirly birds” installed on roofs. Whirly birds rely on highs winds to produce any benefits and even then they only move around 100CBM per hour for each unit. Compare this to the SolarKing that moves 2100CBM per hour, there is no comparison.
The SolarKing solar exhaust fan uses the sun and only starts working when your roof space reaches 25°C so as not to remove warm air in the winter when it is needed to keep your house warm (whirly birds operate regardless of the temperature. When the sun disappears in the evening the SolarKing will stop ventilating but at this time the roof is now cooling naturally with the reduce temperature as the fan has been extracting during the day.
Have you ever noticed how the lower level of a 2 storey home is always cooler than the upper level? This is due to the upper storey blocking extreme heat from the lower level. The SolarKing solar roof ventilation fan does the same thing, the fan replaces the hot air inside your roof with the cooler outside air. This greatly lowers the extreme heat in your roof pushing into to your living space.
You can also add closable vents in the ceiling of your home that can be opened when a cool change comes through to draw the cooler air in through your open windows and doors. Normally you would position these vents near the centre of your home to extract maximum hot air. This air is then extracted along with the hot air in your roof by the SolarKing solar fan.
So if are looking to make a big change to your comfort levels this summer and looking to reduce the high costs of power using air conditioners, let the free power of the sun to do the work for you and use you air conditioning a great deal less.
In the hot Australian summer the SolarKing Exhaust Fan extracts the dry and hot air in the roof. 20x more air than a wind driven Whirly Bird and can reduce roof temperatures by up to 30°.
During the cooler months, the thermostatic control of SolarKing Exhaust Fan prevents heat loss and retaining much needed warmth unlike whirly birds that continue to run.
The SolarKing Exhaust Fan consumes free solar energy, which means no running cost ever.
Also by reducing your roof temperature, your reliance on air conditioning will reduce and lower your energy bills.
The SolarKing Exhaust Fan can be self-installed or you can use one of our approved installers to do the job for you. The unit just required 1 roof tile to be removed for installation or for metal roof’s just a 300mm opening.
The brushless DC motor makes the operation quiet and assures the motor will have long life. Being brushless it is also far more efficient compared to other motors so the performance is better.
