Does this item have a thermostatic switch so it does not run in the winter when the attic is cool?

Asked by: Potato1450
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.

Can this unit be installed on the wall of the house? Of course in the attic area.

Can this unit be installed on the wall of the house? Of course in the attic area.
Asked by: serg
I would not recommend installing it on a vertical surface. The base is made of sheet metal, and I think it would be very difficult to keep the unit weatherproof as the weight of the unit would be pulling the base from the wall instead of pushing it down on the roof. There are solar gable mounted /attic fans available from Home Depot in the same price ranges that are designed for wall installation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stopped working after 7 years and then started leaking after 10 years. Not very durable. Stopped working after 7 years and then started leaking after 10 years. Not very durable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Effective Moves a lot of hot air out of the attic on sunny days, however, even a few clouds slow the unit way down, nearly to a stop, moving no air. Overall, our A/C unit does run less in the summer, which was the reason for the purchase. Noticably cooler in the attic as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from solar attic power vent This product is great, not so much for 1800 sq ft as advertised, but install two and combine the solar panels for increased efficiency, and it dropped the temp in my 2100 sq ft attic by 40*f. Well worth the purchase price as the cost is better than other distributors. Delivery was quoted 5-7 days, I received in two!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall a great product I was a little concerned initially when I opened the box as the unit seemed sorta flimsy...the hood mounts didn't seem adequate to hold the weight of the hood and the hood mounted solar panel. Once it was all installed, it was fine and seems to be withstanding the weather, wind, etc. I had a roofing company install the until while putting on a new roof. It only took them minutes to cut the hole in the roof and mount the unit. I can see how it would take a bit longer to install on an existing roof, but still seems very do-able for a do-it-yourselfer. I connected the solar panel and ran the power cord to the fan motor. Very straight forward. The unit works really well with direct sun. The amount of air it pulls is surprising for a solar powered unit. It even works with clouds.... albeit the fan motor runs slower, but it's still pulling warm air out. The motor runs very quiet and it can't be heard...even when just a few feet away while on the roof next to the unit. All in all, I'm happy with my purchase and would recommend this product to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product I own a home repair business, and have installed this unit on my house (actually installed three on my house) and customers'. I like the fact that the solar panel is adjustable, so you can aim it in the direction desired. And yes, it will not work without sunlight. Even cloud cover will not allow enough light to power the solar panel, but that's OK, because we are concerned about radiant heat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.
