Attic Ventilation Fans: Everything You Need to Know (Solar Star® Attic Fans, Benefits, and More)

Are you tired of your high cooling bill? Attic ventilation may be the answer to your problem. If you don’t already have some sort of attic fan, you should learn more about the benefits of installing one in your home!

A Solar Star® Attic Ventilation Fan can make a huge difference in the way your home cools, especially during the summertime. Adding solar powered attic ventilation can reduce your costs while keeping your home cooler and costs nothing to operate.

At The Roof Guys, we can walk you through the installation process and answer any questions you may have about solar fans. Now, let’s explore all the benefits of a Solar Star® Attic Fan and how they work inside your home! 

How Does Attic Ventilation Work? 

Solar Star Attic Fan Features

Your attic collects heat, even as your air conditioner struggles to keep your home cool. This heat builds up and seeps into your house, forcing your air conditioner to work harder and longer to keep your house comfortable. Your air conditioner will use more electricity, require more maintenance, and burn out faster as it continues to work that hard.

Fortunately, there is a way to help your air conditioner – a Solar Star® Attic Ventilation Fan!

Placing one of these handy fans at the highest point of your roof can maximize your air conditioner’s effectiveness as it helps cool and ventilate your attic. This reduces the strain on your air conditioner, which not only saves money on maintenance and electricity costs, but also lengthens the life of your AC unit while reducing long-term damage to anything stored inside the attic.

Attics trap heat and moisture. Without proper ventilation, the humidity can saturate your insulation and cause fungal decay and wood delamination. However, a solar attic fan helps to reduce the heat and humidity that sits stagnant inside your attic.

What Attic Ventilation Fan Models Do You Offer?

With different Solar Star® Attic Ventilation Fan models to choose from, we can find the right attic ventilation unit to meet your needs. There are two roof mount models:


  • The classic roof mount is best for a low sloped roof with a smaller area.
  • The more robust model is a better option if you have a low sloped roof with a large area or if you have a steep-sloped roof.


If you have a roof with existing vents, such as gable vents or dormer vents, the interior mount may be the best option. 

The best way to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter is an attic ventilation fan. These fans keep your attic cool in the summer and reduce moisture in the winter allowing you the ability to keep a more steady temperature inside your house. Not only does an attic fan help you to save money on your bills but it also helps to save money by prolonging the life of your roof and insulation.

Let us help you pick the best attic fan for your house. You’ll notice the difference right away!

Benefits of Solar Star® Attic Ventilation Fans During Summer 

Solar Star® Attic Ventilation Fans are one of the best ways to save money. Not only will they reduce your electric bill and your maintenance bill while lengthening the lifetime of your air conditioning unit, but they cost nothing to run! Unlike some other fans that will bump up your electric bill, Solar Star® fans run off of the energy of the sun. 

Don’t let the hot sun cost you money and comfort! Your house can be cool and comfortable without costing you an arm and a leg. With a solar powered attic fan, you can improve your attic ventilation and stay cool all summer long!

Solar Star® Attic Ventilation Fans During Winter 

Cold temperatures and excess humidity from showers, humidifiers, and dishwashers during Florida’s winter months can lead to:


  • Leaks and structural decay triggered by ice buildup on your roof
  • Damage to insulation and framing materials produced by moisture accumulation
  • Weakening of internal structures caused by mold and fungus growth


Installing a Solar Star® Attic Ventilation Fan prevents these issues by equalizing interior and exterior temperatures, protecting your home during the winter season.
