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-GR is powder coated with an electrostatic charge in green 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.

Questions & Answers

Does this require a roofer to install?

Does this require a roofer to install?
Asked by: interested
this is a yes a no question. It all depends on your handyman/women skills. If you are good at DIY projects and using power/batt tools you would be able to install it no worries. But remember you will be cutting a hole in your roof and if your not on the money with your installation , you could have a roof leak. So sometimes to try to save a few dollars can in up costing you more in the long run. Check with the store you are buying from, most will offer you installation for a small fee. Also the person you get to fit this fan should be bonded and have insurance , just encase there is a leak then you have someone to fall back on. But like I said at the begging, if you are good a DIY then it's not that hard to install. Also remember safety first and a roof get very hot in sun and tools get hot to the touch too. Once again safety-safety-safety. Good luck I hope this helps. Alby

Can this be installed on a metal roof (horse barn) ?

Asked by: Isabelle
yes, as long as the fans base or flashing can slide under the roofing line. Because of water flowing down hill , the fans base has to put on a under the first sheet and then over the bottom sheet. A hole will have to be cut in the roof and the base will have to screw down and seal with a water proof silicon or tar . If not wanting to cut your roof you could attach to the side wall on the sunny side of your barn with a small flashing to cover the top of the fans base. At this price you could buy two, one for the morning sun and one for the afternoon sun and mount them on the side, thus not having to cut a hole in your roof. Just food for thought. Alby

does it have an "off" switch

or does it run all the time, when ever there's sunshine? Can you block it off in winter so no heat escapes?
Asked by: mwpdx
yes, because this is a 5 watt fan you can install a on/off switch at ground level . It would be like your solar garden lights, most of them have a small on/off switch on the underside. If you don't know how , you could a handyman/electrician to help you. Or go to your local electrical outlet and they might sell you a on/off kit and tell you how or tell you of someone that could do it for you at a small cost. Hope this helps Alby

365 CFM Green Powder Coated 5 Watt Solar Powered Roof Mounted Exhaust Attic Fan is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 9.

Did it myself with long thin crow bar, tube of Henry's roof caulk, hammer and nails. This device is essential for mitigating hot air pressure imbalance, now air moves again. 2 for 1200 agla, 1 for 400 sf grg. Worked!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Buy Ever This item was defective from the get go. I installed it on the roof of my travel trailer, and it's never turned on (even in full sun all day) The panel can't power the fan, and I've tested the fan on a 12v battery and it ran. So the panel is worthless, and I'm not happy at all. I can't return it either because of the installation process (I used Quad OSI and liquid rubber in a can) So what i will do is wire the fan to my deep cycle battery setup. Ugh! Avoid this horrible product!!!

It literally won't power the fan, even in full light all day. I rewired it twice. No luck! Avoid this worthless item that was made in China. Two thumbs waaaaaaaay down! Now I can't return it either, because I installed it in my travel trailer. So yea... I'm not happy.

Have a small shed/building that wanted to keep bit cooler in warmer months. Seems like this unit should work but an optional switch for winter might be good idea.
