Product Overview

More homes and businesses in the U.S. are protected by a GAF roof than by any other product. We are the leading roofing manufacturer in North America.

Nothing protects quite like a roof.

Nothing protects quite like a roof. That's why millions of Americans live, work, and play under quality products from North America's largest roofing manufacturer - GAF.

Always have a balanced ventilation system. The amount of exhaust ventilation should always be equal the amount of intake ventilation.

How much Ventilation do I need?

Include 1 sq. ft. of attic ventilation, evenly split between intake and exhaust, for every 300 sq. ft. of attic floor space.

Choosing the right attic ventilation for your home is very important. GAF offers a great selection of Master Flow and Cobra products.

What type of Ventilation do I need?

Review the ventilation options below to determine the best fit for your home application.

Available in both roof mount and gable mount, power attic vents exhaust the greatest volume of hot and/or humid air from the attic.

High efficiency Electric, Solar or Hybrid

Quickly removes large volumes of heat and moisture from your attic.

Cooler external air enters through vents lower on the eaves or soffits that “pushes” the hot/moist attic air out of the vents higher on the roof.

No electricity required

Allows excess heat and moisture to escape your attic without the need for electric hook-up.

Wind Turbines utilize the wind to pull heat and moisture from your attic and acts as a static exhaust vent when wind is still.

Wind-powered, smooth, and quiet operation

Utilizes the wind to pull heat and moisture from attic; acts as a static exhaust vent when wind is still.

Located at the lowest part of the roof, intake vents are a critical part of the attic ventilation system, allowing fresh air to flow into the attic

The most overlooked and critical part of attic ventilation

Allows cooler, fresh air to enter the attic at/near the soffits driving heat and moisture out higher exhaust vents.

Your home offers warning signs when your attic isn’t properly ventilated. You may recognize some of these signs in your own home.

5 Warning Signs

Here are some poor attic ventilation warning signs that you may recognize:

A possible cause of higher cooling costs could be insufficient attic ventilation, requiring the cooling system to run excessively.

1. Increased energy costs

Excess attic heat can cause your cooling system to work harder, raising your energy costs.

If you see that your shingles are dry or breaking, that could mean you have inadequate attic ventilation or you may need a new roof

2. Curling/cracking shingles

Inadequate ventilation can cause your roof shingles to curl and crack.

Moisture in the attic can become trapped and condense on rafters and insulation if not insulated properly. This can potentially increase energy costs

3. Roof decking moisture

Excess attic moisture can drip into attic insulation reducing effectiveness, even damaging ceilings below.

Stains or mold growth inside your home may be caused by inadequate attic ventilation. Excessive moisture in the attic allows mold and mildew to thrive

4. Attic mold/mildew

Excessive moisture can cause dangerous mold and mildew causing additional concerns.

Ice damming can cause water to enter the attic and house if you don’t have an adequate shingle underlayment or if the flashing has deteriorated.

5. Winter ice dams

Ice dams can cause expensive leaks and damage in attics, as well as living spaces.

The GAF Master Flow 30-Watt Low Profile Dual Powered Roof Mount Exhaust Fan will help reduce excess heat and moisture from your attic to protect your roofing system from premature deterioration. And, its low profile design helps the look of your finished roof. The patented (Patent # 8,915,778) Next Generation Dual Powered unit will run on free solar power (750 CFM) when the sun is shining on the solar panel but will automatically switch to house power (900 CFM) if it is cloudy or nighttime. Hot attic air is removed by the fan as fresh air is drawn in through your existing intake vents. On house power, the 24-Volt DC brushless motor is extremely efficient as it uses 75% less power than a typical wired attic fan. With the Dual Powered unit, you have the best of both worlds! The impact-resistant, 30-Watt solar panel helps withstand hail and object impact. The recommended usage for this unit is one unit per 1000 sq. ft. of attic space with a minimum intake ventilation of 560 sq. in. of net free area.

Called customer support a few times to ask various questions about the product and everytime i spoke with their representative i found that they weren't very helpful or very friendly. It was like pulling teeth to get an answer. They only sell the solar in store and not the hybrid. I gave back the solar and got the hybrid. Waiting for someone to hook up the electric. Let see how long this lasts. There are better designs and stronger solar fans that if the motor dies you can swap it without taking out the whole flange.
