Product Overview

Active Ventilation Products Aura Ventilator Retrofit product line is designed to fit over a turbine ventilator roof base. It has a flared adapter that easily fits over an existing roof mounted metal base. The Aura Ventilator Retrofit has a patented engineered design to create CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) of air flow with no moving parts. Model AV-12-RF-BR has a 12 in. Dia throat opening and will produce 310 CFM at 11 mph with no moving parts. It is an excellent choice to exhaust attic heat in the summer and moisture in the winter. The Aura Ventilator Retrofit product line is made of durable rust free aluminum and has 2 manufactured components: The vent head and adapter. The vent head’s patented design has three concentric cylinders with slotted vertical louvers. When air moves against the louvers of the outer and middle cylinders it is directed to create a circular airflow while spinning against the inner louver section. This air movement creates a Venturi effect which produces a vacuum or negative pressure to pull air from within the attic space. The vent has a flat one piece spun cap that prevents rain and snow from entering the vent verses the turbine vent which is open to the sky and allows rain water to enter in “no wind” conditions. Model AV-12-RF-BR is powder coated with an electrostatic charge in brown finish.

  • Easy to install
  • Noiseless, does not require electricity to exhaust air from attics spaces
  • Leveling is not required; the aura ventilator retrofit can be installed parallel to the roof
  • Built-in inner vertical louvers has an 1/8 in. opening between the louvers to keep out insects, birds and squirrels from entering the vent while allowing optimal air flow and no maintenance
  • Will reduce attic temperatures in the summer and will keep the attic dry and cool in the winter to preserve attic insulation and prevent ice dams
  • Round aerodynamic design can with stand harsh weather and wind forces of up to 200 mph
  • Model AV-12-RF-BR, brown powder coating finish adheres extremely well and is more difficult to remove than wet paint which adds to the vents durability and long lasting clean appearance
  • Powder coating is significantly greater at resisting scratching, chipping, and oxidation
  • Net free air space: 113 sq. in.
  • Ventilation rule 1:300 (1 per sq. ft. of attic space): 1 vent per 450 sq. ft. of attic space
  • Helps to reduce energy costs
  • 5-year warranty

I have 9 1/4 inch base parallel to roof pitch, cannot modify, can these be adapted to this situation?

Asked by: Reggie

Although the Retrofit Wind Turbine does not have a motor, what if I add a motor to this vent on a current motorized attic vent?

Comparing what I have which is a Wind Turbine with electric fan...

12 in. Brown Powder Coated Aluminum No Moving Parts Retrofit Wind Turbine is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy One of the smartest things I have done. Easy installation. No more weird noises coming from the roof. The kids don't shoot at it with their BB guns because it doesn't move. Perhaps the best thing of all is the looks. You want a sexy roof? This is better than a set of six pack abs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go for it... First off, Home Depot was excellent with my online purchase and delivery. I spend too much whenever I go to the store - hence - online. :-) Packages arrived unscathed. All parts were there and I used the included parts (screws, etc.) Perfect fit on the original turbine mounts and a very easy install! Excellent engineering. So then - how do they work? I live in South West Florida. Sun is relentless. Roof and home are brown. With the turbines (which were working fine after some WD40) just didn't seem to get the heat out. I know - sounds odd but every time I went up in the attic for 5 minutes, I came down soaking wet. As long as there is a slight breeze - maybe 5mph - these vents keep things cool. PERIOD. I can go up there in the attic and not come down sweating like a pig. There it is... They work. And you will like. BTW, the vents are just a couple of inches higher than the roof peak. Maybe that matters. But as far as this old man is concerned - it's a buy.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better choice than a turbine vent top... The Aura vents move as much or more air than a turbine style vent but they have no moving parts and don't actually move so there is nothing to wear out and start squeaking. Had this installed in place of a low profile vent in hopes of cooling my attic. This matched my Timberline roof where there was a solo vent was in a roof peak. Time will tell once it heats up this summer. In the past I could feel heat radiating in from the ceiling and in my upstairs dormer room. Had the dormer roof repaired with a new white surface roof and other Aura vents to try to keep the attic cool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very easy to install Fit perfect on the old base for the rotating turbine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I purchased three of these to replace older turbines which were allowing rain to come into the attic during our spring storms. These vent heads are well made and were simple to install onto the original stack pipes, had all three installed in less than thirty minutes. They look great and are keeping attic much cooler.
