Don’t wait until next summer to install a solar attic fan – they’re useful during winter, too!

If you thought about upgrading to a solar attic fan earlier in the summer, but you never quite got around to it, it’s not too late to experience the benefits. In fact, fall may be one of the best seasons to install a solar attic fan!

Let’s take a look at the many benefits of a solar attic fan and why you should install one this fall.

Cool Your Home

Fall is that time of year where you really don’t want to turn your AC on, but some days are too hot for just a fan. A solar attic fan draws hot air out of your home, reducing the temperature in your attic by as much as 40 degrees, which helps lower the temperature throughout your home.

Protect Your Roof

For many people, fall can also mean snow. Did you know an improperly vented attic can melt snow in patches on your roof? That melted snow then freezes and creates harmful ice dams that can damage your roof, shingles, or gutters.

A solar attic fan helps maintain consistent temperatures throughout your attic, reducing the likelihood of ice dams forming on your roof.

Save the Environment

Solar attic fans are powered by the sun and don’t require any electricity. While an electric attic fan may not seem to require that much electricity, every kilowatt-hour of electricity you DON’T use helps reduce the use of fossil fuels.

Lower Electric Bills

If you currently have an electric attic fan, you can reduce your electric bills by switching to a solar attic fan. Who doesn’t want to save money on their electric bill?

Extend the Life of Your AC

Since solar attic fans significantly lower the temperature in your attic, your air conditioner doesn’t need to work as hard to keep the rest of your home cool. When your AC doesn’t have to work as hard, it can last longer.


Wouldn’t you rather listen to birds singing or the wind blowing through the trees than the sound of an electric attic fan or your air conditioner? Autumn just sounds better when you have a solar attic fan.
