It would help if there were instructions and warranty information.

I purchased this small solar fan to cool roof in my garage. The unit is very lightweight so there is no problem to install it. I removed existing vent and put solar on same spot. Even used same nails. As for performance of the unit: well under 80 F is doing job well, at 90 F I cannot see the effect probably to small capacity for the temperature and volume of air it needs to move. It's been only 10 days after I installed it.

I had added this during a reroof of our doublewide mobile home with the Fabral metal roofing to help pull the heat out of the attic crawl space.
The solar fan really pulls the hot air out of the attic space when the sun is full out. But add any clouds at all and it simply stops.
I feel it would be a better buy had they added more solar cells for it to operate when the weather is "fair" or "partly cloudy. The temps can still be high during these periods.
But otherwise I am happy with the purchase.

I purchased this product to vent a chicken coup which is basically an 8'X12' shed. Installation was easy although a cut template would have been nice. Adequate flow for this application.

Small, lightweight plastic fan, only slightly larger than you might find in your old desktop computer. Kind of shocking when you open the box in person, after seeing the picture online. And it is only about 1/2 of the diameter of the vent itself, so isn't capable of moving a lot of air. If you are thinking about buying this (because of the great price) be warned that you either need a very small space to vent, or a LOT of these fans, and they MUST see direct sunlight or won't work at all. It's nice that it's solar powered, but you can get "real" solar fans for attic venting, they just cost a LOT more. If you need to vent a house attic or garage, you will need to bite the bullet and spend more on a much more powerful solar fan. Or go the old fashioned (and way less expensive) route of a wired electric fan.
It's also hard to imagine the tiny bearings and motor running this unit will hold up under daily use for very long. We shall see though, since the hole is already in the roof!
This would be sufficient for a dog house, or a doll house, but not a large area that really needs ventilation. I added a medium sized electric fan on my small side yard sun room, because on hot days this isn't enough to do the job.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Clypman Simple, durable, affordable
Simple to assemble and install with ordinary hand tools this attic vent works great.... as long as the sun shines. Like most solar powered items, this is the downfall. With no battery, it requires nearly full sun to operate. When that is fulfilled, works like a charm, and quietly too!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bob Should have listened to others
The fan is just like a computer fan so I see no way that it would do any good. Also you can only mount it one way and that might not be great to get the most sun. All in all, a bad purchase for me. It would cost to much to return it so just a bad purchase.
