Broan's Solar-Powered Attic Ventilators are the best at removingheat and moisture from your attic because every component isengineered for superior performance. From the solar panel to thelow-profile housing, we build consistency and quality into ourproduct to ensure it delivers the performance you expect in adesign that looks great on your roof.
The Aesthetic Difference: You take pride in your home, so whydisturb the look of your roofline with an unattractive panel juttingup a foot or more' That's right, many SPAVs require the solarpanel be raised and angled toward the sun to be effective. TheBroan SPAV has a highly-effective solar panel integrated into alow-profile, square housing that rises only 7-1/2" from the roof.
Highly-effective Solar Panel: Unlike most solar attic fans,our high-end photovoltaic cells perform better in low lightconditions. They start working at dawn and keep at it until dusk.That's critical to prevent daytime heat and nighttime moisturebuild-up.
On the surface, tempered glass withstands golf ball-size hail, andwon't separate in harsh conditions like laminated solar panels. Individually tested at the factory to output a full 20 watts, rest assured that the product you take out of the box will perform asexpected on the roof.
Heavy-duty Motor: Our top-of-the-line, direct current motor willprovide years of maintenance-free performance and ventilatesaverage size attics of 1600 sq. ft. It's whisper-quiet anddynamically balanced to reduce noise and damaging vibration. Thevariable voltage motor automatically adjusts the fan speed basedon the level of sunlight available which means it can run evenwhen the sun's rays are not strongest. Sealed ball-bearings protectagainst motor wear while our zinc plated, steel motor housingprotects against corrosion. Other SPAVs use inexpensive brushlessmotors, but our motor features replaceable brushes to furtherextend the productâ??s already long life.
Engineered Housing: A beautiful roofline can quickly be marredby the rusted, faded, and dented housing of an attic ventilator. Toresist the elements, our UV-enhanced, molded ABS plastic housingis engineered to resist dents and scratches and maintain its color.
