Product Overview

Active Ventilation Products Aura Solar Attic Fan Retrofit product line is designed to fit over a turbine ventilator roof base. It has a flared adapter that easily fits over an existing roof mounted metal base. The Aura Solar Attic Fan Retrofit will exhaust air continuously by using solar and wind power for optimum ventilation performance. Model ASF-12-RF has a 12 in. Dia throat opening and a 10-Watt solar panel providing energy to 4 EC fans on sunny days to increase the CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) of 740 at 0.1 SP of air flow performance. It is an excellent choice to exhaust attic heat in the summer and exhaust moisture in the winter. The Aura Solar Attic Fan Retrofit will produce 310 CFM at 11 mph without the solar powered fans through its patented engineered design with no moving parts. The attic fan is made of durable rust free aluminum and has 4 manufactured components: The vent head, 4 - EC fans, 1 - solar panel and adapter. The vent head’s patented design has three concentric cylinders with slotted vertical louvers. When air moves against the louvers of the outer and middle cylinders it is directed to create a circular airflow. The louvers of the inner cylinder face in the same direction as the air movement created by the outside cylinder. This air movement creates a Venturi effect which produces a vacuum or negative pressure to pull air from within the attic space.
  • No assembly required, comes complete and ready to be installed
  • Fits over an existing 12 in. Dia metal roof base
  • No wiring or batteries required, operates on solar and wind energy
  • Does not require an electrical connection to exhaust air from attics spaces
  • Solar panel operates at 12-Volt
  • Solar panel is manufactured tempered glass; rugged design to withstand high wind pressure, hail and snow load; providing exceptional panel rigidity
  • Quiet fan operation; designed to run up to 40,000 life hours per fan
  • Inner vertical louvers will keep insects, birds and squirrels from entering the vent while allowing optimal air flow and no maintenance
  • Works 24/7 to help to reduce energy costs even after the sun sets or on cloudy days
  • Will reduce attic temperatures in the summer and will keep the attic dry and cool in the winter to preserve attic insulation and prevent ice dams
  • Round aerodynamic design can with stand harsh weather and wind forces of up to 200 mph
  • Vent head has a flat one piece spun cap that prevents rain and snow from entering
  • Pitch capacity range: 0/12 to 12/12
  • Net free air: 113 sq. in. (0.78 sq. ft.)
  • Ventilation rule 1:300: 1 unit per 450 sq. ft. of attic space (maximum up to 750 sq. ft.)
  • Mill finish aluminum will continually have a long lasting clean appearance
  • 5 year warranty

how much would it cost for installation.also it says a certain amount of sq.ft. per fan does that suggest two fans per a 1000 sq.ft. home.

how does it fit over an existing fan or a replacement. I have a new attic fan but it was never hooked up electrically .does this fan come with solar wires and or batteries ,is there anything else to buy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It only took about 5 minutes to install. I expected... It only took about 5 minutes to install. I expected the solar panel to be adjustable to face at an angle to the south but it is stationary, although it probably wouldn't be hard to adapt it to become angled. I haven't had it long enough to rate performance or durability but it looks well made.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not what I expected !! Works great for replacing a existing standard wind turban but disappointed in performance thought fins should spin and fans should still run even if not in direct sun. When fans are running works good. Very expensive for what you get.
Date published: 2015-08-07
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better than nothing. Free energy moves some hot air out of attic crawl space, but not alot of hot air. Easy to install. Great concept: using free solar energy to move hot air out of your attic crawl space, hopefully making the house easier to keep cool. Biggest downside is it doesn't move quite enough air. I bought two of them and easily installed them on the pre-existing bases for my wind turbines. My old wind turbines were worn out: bearings bad. I was happy to replace the wind turbines with this product, but it seems like a lot of money for the amount of air they move. Still, I do not regret the purchase.

Product was a cinch to install, most difficult part was removing the old vents!! Installed 3 in under 15 minutes. Instant impact on the temperature in the attic and subsequently the house. Well constructed, internal wiring reflects great attention to details.
