Answers

I had this Ventamatic installed last May when my roof was replaced. It runs very quiet. I've actually gone up in the attack twice to see if was running because it is so quiet. It stops only when it is no longer exposed to light. I guess it does not have a conventional storage cell. I hope this helps...

Hello Judy23, the solar panel can be up or down depending on the pitch of your roof. The panel needs to be raised and facing the south so that it will catch as most sun as possible.

Does the fan have a battery back up ??

Asked by wildwings May 4, 2017
2
Answers

No, there is no battery backup - it runs when the solar panels have enough light. Note: it doesn't require direct sunlight, it can work in some cloudy and slight overcast conditions.

can you install this vent on a roof that has an angel. our roof is not flat and is at a peak.

Asked by Cindy February 1, 2017
2
Answers

If there is an angel on your roof you don't need an attic fan. Angel's will solve all your problems both temperature related and otherwise.

I am completely happy with the ease of install and the thoroughness of instructions.Two hours from start to finish.My attic in the hot New Mexico sun went from 160 degrees to 92 degrees in three hours and has not been above 95 degrees since.My recommendation is if you do not have one get one!

So far, very good. Has a lot of air pull to it. I think the supports brackets around the doom need to be a stiffer and stronger to protect the dome from severe weather. It Needs a string blue led light light pointing to ground on unit showing u fan is running vs climbing in the attic

Not heavy duty
The vent works and installs as advertised. It is not Texas/ Dade county certified for a reason....light weight flimsy construction.
