Answer: 
Sissy,
The solar panel comes with a hardware bag that includes 4 tabs that will allow for the panel to be mounted to the roof via screws. It is also recommended that you use roofing compound to seal the holes that are drilled into the shingles to prevent rain from getting into your attic.

Answer: 
An attic “vent” fan does cool the attic but their main reason is to remove humidity. Humidity levels tend to be lowest during the afternoon hours and then rise at night. Having the fan off at night is a benefit. I would turn the panel somewhat west so it runs its best during the afternoon (3PM) low humidity.

Answer: 
Hello Tommy,
The solar powered fan will stop running as soon as the panel is out of the sun light. Unfortunately we do not currently have a controller that will allow for connection to mains voltage.
I cannot comment about the other manufacturer's product being compatible with our product.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Solar Fan , Moves alot of Air All in all this unit would have gotten 5 stars from me if they had put a little thought into the hardware supplied. I mean R56 cable clips for 18 gauge wire ? tall headed machine screws instead of pan or carriage bolts inside the fan housing very close to the fan blades and I tapped and used machine screws in the heavy aluminum solar panel frame instead of using the supplied sheet metal screws. but I would buy it again ,and recommend this unit., even if means you may find yourself taking a trip to Home Depot for better hardware. April 13, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Free Solar Cooling The product arrived in good shape and on schedule. The instructions were clear and adequate for the installation. Installation took 4.5 hours, including a trip to Home Depot for a sheet of OSB and a sawcut to prepare it for installation. When attaching the L brackets to the housing, be sure the bolts are pulled well down the slot toward the edge so the fan blade won't hit the heads. The wire on the solar panel is very long, which allows a lot of options for it's location. Knowing I would later shorten it, I didn't hesitate to clip off the spade lugs to facilitate poking the wire through the ridge vent into my garage attic. After installation, I covered the gable vent on the opposite side to draw more air through the house vents. Before winter, I plan to add a thermostat to keep from chilling the attic too much in cold weather. The fan is located over the garage, though I don't believe it would have been a problem over the living room as it is very quiet. I can't produce fact & figures yet, but our impression is the AC is running less, and the garage & kitchen are certainly cooler. June 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by save thge roof housing and replace the motor unit. I am using these fans to replace brushed motor solar fans in the roof that the motor has died on. take the old motor and fan blade out and mount the fan to the bottom of the sub roof deck and re-use the old solar panels. they work great. July 28, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Unit ! Works very well although it doesn't turn very many RPM's . Having to buy another panel to increase speed was very disappointing ! August 4, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Just note doesn't have a bracket for solar panel Haven't seen it work yet but one problem is i have to make or get a bracket to install the soar panel. Unless I am missing something is will be a pain. Mastercraft panel came pre-installed with a bracket on its panel March 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works perfect! I had to adjust the fan shroud because one of the blades was hitting the bracket but, after a few minor adjustments, it worked well. Installation was rather simple, even though I have a Terra Cotta Tile roof and had to make a free standing platform to mount the solar panel. I also placed an off/on switch in line, so that I could turn the fan off during winter months! My only negative comment would be, the price is a bit steep for the quality of the fan and it's parts but by the same token, living in Arizona with the outdoor temperature getting upward of 120 degrees, the attic gets over 140 and it's a good place for a fire to start and with that in mind, this fan is priceless if it saves lives! January 24, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Buy The fan was easy to install and so was the solar panel. Easy installation all around. Does the job well. September 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works according to spec, well worth the money I've had this for a year now and it works very well. I am surprised about how powerful it is. I have it in my solarium and got a thermostat to control it. I wait for it to fail someday but am pleasantly surprised that it keeps on ticking. I am thinking of getting another. The solar panel is well worth the money hands down. The solar panel installation bracket needed modifications since I have it mounted on a vertical surface and not a horizontal roof which is what it's made for. April 21, 2013
