Product Overview

Active Ventilation Products solar powered attic fan product line, the Round Back Solar Fan, is excellent at exhausting attic spaces for shingled roofs. The solar panel provides energy to the fan on sunny days to increase the vent's CFM over and beyond a standard non-motorized static vent. The Round Back Solar Fan is made of rust free aluminum, 8 in. Dia exhaust fan with a 2 in. collar height and 13 in. x 13 in. square flange. Its low profile design looks pleasing on shingled roofs. The Round Back Solar Fan has a solid vent cap with an inner vertical louver cylinder to keep out insects, birds, and animals. The inner vertical louver allows air to exhaust without resistance. Model RBSF-8-BR is powder coated with an electrostatic charge in brown finish. The powder coating finish adheres extremely well and is more difficult to remove than wet paint which adds to the vents durability and long lasting clean appearance.
  • Excellent choice to removing radiant heat from attic spaces
  • Brown powder coating finish is significantly greater at resisting scratching, chipping, and oxidation
  • Has a 5-Watt high efficiency solar panel
  • Solar panel: 5-Watt, 12-Volt
  • Ventilation rule 1:300, application per sq. ft.: 200 sq. ft.
  • Net free air space: 50 sq. in.
  • 2 in. clearance between bottom of vent cap and flange
  • Built-in inner vertical louver cylinder has a 1/8 in. opening between louver blades that will keep out insects, birds, and animals while allowing air to move through the vent without resistance
  • Inner cylinder louver design does not allow accumulation of particle buildup as found in using an insect screen
  • 1/8th in. opening between the louver blades and all aluminum ("noncombustible") material meets the requirements of California building code 706A.2 Vents to resist the intrusion of burning embers and flame through ventilation openings
  • 365 CFM at 0.1 SP
  • Helps to reduce energy costs

Questions & Answers

is there a way to turn the fan off in winter?

Asked by: Protector
You do not want to shut off attic ventilation in the winter. During the winter homes are kept closed up and the humidity generated by cooking, showering etc. builds up in the attic and will condense on the underside of the roof deck. This leads to rotting and/or mold growth. Attics need to breath all year round.

Does the solar panel have to face south. Or does the solar panel prop up?

Does the solar panel have to face south. Or does the solar panel prop up?
Asked by: Jim
It is better if it faces south since the panel is fixed to the vent.

In case the motor or the solar panel breaks down will the air still flow from the attic?

In case the motor or the solar panel breaks down will the air still flow from the attic?
Asked by: Ed
Yes, the vent area on the stack is wider and taller than the fan and presumably would allow air to flow easily around it. The solar panel is mounted on top and would not affect air flow. One thing to note: the fan does not have a thermostat so it operates whenever it gets enough sunlight -- summer or winter!

365 CFM Brown Powder Coated 5-Watt Solar Powered Roof Mounted Exhaust Attic Fan is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 151.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I'd give it less than 1 star of possible The housing is very thin gauge, all electronics are made in China and prone to clogging up. No screens, and a HUGE gap between the housing and fan significantly reduces air flow. If it's not in direct sunlight. it won't operate. There is no battery, and the company is no help. Steer clear!

I tested it in the full sun before installing it on the roof of a backyard shed, it pulls a decent amount of air out of the shed which lowered the temp in the shed by a few degrees.
