Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Marty Solar Powered Attic fan design
I purchased these fans to replace 2 almost identical 8 year old fans, which had failed. The problem with the old fans and the new fans is, that there isn't a way to service or trouble shoot problems from the roof, only from the attic which is impossible. Upon inspection of the failed fans, revealed that the only problem with both fans was the motor brushes had worn out, otherwise the fans were in good shape. It would have added value to the fans to have the motors accessible from the roof, and also to have a parts list.
Now that I know what to expect, the next failure will be, while not easy, possible to repair. I think the quality is there, just not the serviceability.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WisconsinSteve Well built, works as described
The product was well packaged and arrived complete and without damage. The construction and design of the fan was well done. Paint quality is great. From the time I grabbed my ladder, drilled a small hole from within the attic, and then went out onto the roof to cut a larger hole and install it, my ladder was back where I store it about an hour later. Super easy, leak-tight installation. I used some electrical tape as 'tassles' that I can watch from the ground to see when the fan is operating. It starts moving air with only small amounts of incident sunlight in the early morning hours or through cloudy skies. And it really moves the air with direct afternoon sunlight. I have only had it in for about a month, so not sure what gains I'll get in electric bill and reduced air-conditioner time, but regardless, this product definitely reduces attic temperatures which will no doubt help. The break-even ROI may be many years down the road, but I know my attic is cooler now, so I sleep better knowing I did what I could to reduce those temps and improve shingle life, air-conditioner cycling, etc. GREAT to not have to run wiring up into the attic and pay for electricity to power a fan. Highly recommend this fan and a solar solution for attic cooling.

Installed for customer prior to their settlement date on house sale. Installation was easy. Unit came right on in the sunlight. Didn't come with a bar to adjust the solar panel pitch though. If it was something that I needed , I would have had to make it myself

Ventilates quite a bit of attic. Dropped the attic temperature by 10 degrees. Works on solar and I like the tilt panel feature.

Easy to install, moves almost as much air as an AC powered exhaust fan, and is much quieter than the AC powered fan it replaced. Excellent product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spartan137 Excellent Product.
Currently I have two of these vents on my house one on my garage and one venting part of my attic that previously did not have any ventilation. My garage is a one car garage and during the summer it was unbearable to be in there for more than a few minutes. However, now with the vent installed there is a noticeable difference in the temperature. Also to note that even though that the solar panel does not get direct sunlight in the morning the fan still is able to preform however not as effective. As of now I have ordered another two of these vents for the rest of my home but unfortunately not from Home Depot because they have been out of stock for some time now. Other than that installation was a breeze and so far the performance is excellent I would defiantly recommenced this product.
