Questions & Answers

Do you hook up to electricty also?

Does this fan have a tempature switch?

Does this fan have a tempature switch to allow it to not run when the attic space is cooler as in winter time?
Asked by: Slim
No, you can put a hood on it. If your attic is sealed and insulated well this should not matter.

Can this fan be mounted on a vertical surface?

I'm looking for a solar-powered vent to be mounted above a door. Will the fan still run and vent well in a vertical installation?
Asked by: KW
yes, but it will not preform as well. Another problem you will have is lack of sun.
Answered by: Jeffrey

Can the solar panel be disconnected/unbolted from the rest of the unit?

I'm looking for a solar-powered vent to be mounted above a door. I would disconnect the panel and add a length of wire in order to be able to orient the panel properly towards the sun. Is this feasible?

365 CFM Mill Finish 5 Watt Solar Powered Roof Mounted Exhaust Attic Fan is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 13.

Otherwise the motor doesn't spin and makes a whining noise. This will lead to premature motor failure. The correct design would incorporate a relay that would activate when a minimum voltage from the solar panel is achieved to drive the fan. I didn't expect much for the price.

Operated fine in sun and turned off without sun. I wanted a light pull of air for the roof venting. Should work very well because pulling heat out of the roof in the afternoon is when the heat builds up the most.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from could be great but no overall unit is o k in its construction , but solar cell is really lacking power to motor ratio. the shadow of even a finger takes the motor to 50% speed
