Answer: 
no, there is no switch. I installed mine in a seasonal cottage, and made a cover to block the sun so it doesn't run in the winter. if the sun is out, it runs.

Answer: 
Hello, when placing the solar panel on your roof, choose a southern or western exposure away from trees and afternoon shadows to maximize the amount of sun the panel receives.

Answer: 
In general, it should face South. The farther north you are located, the higher you should raise the adjustable angle of the solar panel to compensate for the angle of the sun. This is a good product - I installed mine 5 years ago and it is running great.

Answer: 
This fan can be installed on a curb that would need to be fashioned and installed by a roofing contractor. There is no problem installing this fan in this manner.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I was surprised at the speed of delivery! I am completely happy with the ease of install and the thoroughness of instructions.Two hours from start to finish.My attic in the hot New Mexico sun went from 160 degrees to 92 degrees in three hours and has not been above 95 degrees since.My recommendation is if you do not have one get one! September 25, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Go Green Product was well made. Did not flow as much air as I expected . Very dependent on un blocked sun light. Would not work well if you had a lot of tall trees near your house. Also has hook up for extra solar panel .I guess that would increase the fan speed. Missed that when reading info. Overall product looks and works like it should. Just does not get the airflow like a wired fan will do. But does not cost anything to run. For now sunlight is free. July 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by perfect very easy to install, only 30mins. can't beat that, no leaks, runs great. September 8, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by worst purchase ever this item came with no instructions and no way to connect the motor to the panel without drilling a hole in the fan. the fan does not put out any more cfm's than fans half the price. July 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Featured quiet working parts and easy installation Had a little trouble at the store as ordered two of the solar vents and supposedly only one arrived but the telephone online customer service specialist stayed with us for over 45 minutes searching for our order to find that the manufacturer had sent the item with a different product code number and our item had been at the store the entire time. Thanks to that young man for taking the time to research and find out "missing" item that was definitely not Home Depot fault. July 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cooled my attic off very well I have a single story 1950 sq foot home with a large attic. Apparently when my roof was replaced a few years ago no vents (other than the soffit vent) were installed. My attic normally would be like a sauna during the summer months (I'm in Austin, Texas). After having two of these installed, on opposite slopes of the roof, my attic at 4:00pm is just WARM. It's significantly cooler than it used to be. I can actually breath while up there and it doesn't feel unbearable. August 21, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy install and mostly quiet operation The product is very simple and not necessarily an attractive piece of machinery. It's definitely something I wanted out of street view. Once installed, they have been mostly quiet and when I poke my head up in the attic to check them when the sun is out they do get quite a lot of air moving. My only gripe so far is that when the level of sunlight changes and the fans spin down a bit, there's an accompanying high-pitched vibration that sounds like a semi truck is braking down the street. It's only heard when the house is silent, but is annoying nonetheless. I don't think this is the best quality, best-assembled product, but it does the job of ventilating the attic which until it gets really warm out, we won't be able to tell how much good it does, but my attic needed more ventilation regardless, so overall I'm happy. March 19, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by product review is good havent tested it yet. but roofers say its good to go August 5, 2014
