The Solar Whiz is a powerful solar ventilator & heat extractor fan that operates completely without electricity. It is ideal for roof ventilation and home cooling in summer, and great for reducing moisture levels and condensation in the roof space in winter. Since its introduction in 2009 this ventilation system has proven to be superiority in performance and be highly adaptive for different climates and applications. Along with a design specifically for Australian roofs, the Solar Whiz has become an increasingly popular roof ventilator, widely used as a class leading roof exhaust fan for solar cooling or home ventilation.
Most commonly, the Solar Whiz roof vent is used to remove hot air from the roof/attic space, however it may also be used for removing heat directly from the interior of the building or provide home ventilation. A Solar Whiz roof ventilator will also protect the roof structure and help prevent mould and mildew in the winter months.
Eliminating the heat build up in your roof space (roof cooling) reduces the heat load on your ceiling, and stops heat from penetrating into your living space. This results in lower internal temperatures and could save you hundreds of dollars on cooling costs by improving the efficiency of your existing air conditioning systems.
Solar Whiz is a simple and effective roof extractor, however it has many applications and can be installed in various ways. Please see our Frequently Asked Questions.
Roof Ventilation & Roof Cooling
If you have decided to turn your roof space into a useful attic area – you will have experienced how warm attics get during the summer months – and probably don’t use it much for 3-4 months of the year. If you install a Solar Whiz attic fan to extract the heat directly from the attic – you can reduce the temperature dramatically – and “claim back” this space!
Reduced need for Home cooling
Roof temperatures throughout most of Australia often reach between 60-70 degrees (C) in the summer months. These high temperatures will – even with good insulation – eventually radiate heat down through the ceiling and increase the internal temperature – resulting in a need for home cooling unless adequate roof ventilation is ensured.
The Solar Whiz provides natural ventilation and roof cooling by replacing the hot air with cooler air pulled in through vents under the eaves or other openings to the roof space. This normally enables you to maintain roof temperatures relatively close to the ambient temperature – and as a”flow on” effect reduces the need for home cooling.
