SolarAir solar powered ventilation systems
SolarAir solar powered ventilation systems are the quick, easy and economical way to reduce heat build-up from solar-gain in virtually any building type.
The roof-mounted SolarAir fan is simple; a highly efficient 300mm extractor fan is driven directly by a photo-voltaic solar-panel located in a neat, slim-line unit on the roof. The brighter and stronger the sun, the harder the whisper-quiet fan works to extract the hot air at the top of the building. The system can extract the air immediately below it or be connected to ducting allowing for areas further into the building to be ventilated.
For increased control, a SolarAir fan is available with optional thermostatic controls, allowing the system to be deactivated when ventilation is not required.
Maximising the available light
In situations where the roof angle or location is less than ideal, either due to angle or aspect, the SolarAir system* can be set to capture the maximum available light to work as efficiently as possible regardless of roof pitch or aspect. The SolarAir system has a solar panel that can be rotated and angle to the optimum position for the roof that it is located on.
Over heating in loft converstions
With house prices and the cost of moving at an all time high, more and more people are choosing to create extra living space by moving into their lofts. However, virtually all loft conversions suffer the same fate; over-heating in the summer. During the day the sun beats on the roof and windows of the house and all of the heat created has nowhere else to go other than up into the loft.
The installation of a SolarAir attic vent could eradicate this problem forever. As the the strength of the sun increases, the whisper-quite fan extracts the hot air before it has a chance to build up, ensuring that when you return home your loft rooms are as fresh and cool as the rest of your house.
More than just cooling
The movement and supply of fresh air is vital for the health of a building. If a building is left for prolonged periods without any air movement the effects can be catastrophic. Damp, stagnant air can cause damage that can eventually destroy a building. The addition of a single SolarAir system will provide enough ventilation to prevent the build-up of damp, stale air in buildings like holiday cottages which are left uninhabited for long periods of time.
SolarAir solar powered extraction systems are perfect for:
- Loft conversions
- Holiday homes
- Garden centres
- Toilet and shower blocks
- Mobile homes
In fact, any building that suffers from solar-gain or lack of ventilation.
