Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent for Ventilating Smaller Spaces Terrific solar powered fan for ventilating smaller spaces. The fan is virtually silent, I cannot hear If more than 2 or 3 feet away. I found that the fan still operates with cloudy skies, although at a lower speed. May 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PC Fan These were priced a lot better than other solar attic fans, and when it arrived I saw why. The fan in the unit is just a 120 mm PC fan chicken-wired into the top. Because of the open area surrounding the fan, the airflow isn't great right out of the box. You can fix this by sealing it off with some tape/plastic and the airflow is improved markedly. You're probably going to have to replace or oil these fans after a few years, but since they're just PC fans, the parts are readily available, and it's an easy DIY job. August 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great price easy to install, only took about an hour. works well even in low sunlight conditions. Dropped the temp or my attic 5 degrees in the first 2 hours. September 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product for Northern AZ, the land of alot of sunshine Having recently relocated to Northern AZ I noticed that my attic area had a daily temperature of 140 degrees. After investigating solar attic fans I found this one through the manufactures website. I ordered one and it did a great job, but with a flat roof I felt I needed 3 more to cover the area. I found out that Home Depot carried the fans and placed the order there and had them shipped to my house. The temp in the attic has dropped significantly and the product was easy yo install.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Little Fan Good, pretty well made solar fan. Installed on my 10 by 20 barn with a metal roof. Looks good. Not too noisy - but it can be heard at ground level. Not a great flow but helps ventilate the heat out. May have to install another one later. Installed this fan instead of a whirlybird because it was smaller penetration. Would probably install the whirlybird next time at half the price. May 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice little fan The attic fan apears to work well and has a nice finish. Time will tell. November 11, 2014
