We all know that hot air rises, but it also expands – in all directions. If you have vents in your roof space they will let warm air out. However vents only work when the roof space is already warm – and the expanding air starts radiating into your home. Solar Whiz starts when the sun shines on the roof – and therefore prevents the heat from building up.
Reduce moisture levels: Solar Whiz is also a very effective way to reduce moisture levels in the roof space. The extraction fan removes moist air, which amongst other damaging effects, may cause condensation on the roof – and in extreme cases condensation dripping onto insulation/ceiling causing damage, such as cracking plaster and peeling paint. A Solar Whiz will also help prevent mould & mildew and protects the roof structure.
Heat extraction from inside the house: Solar Whiz may via a duct remove hot air from specific rooms or areas. It may also be possible to simply place vents in specific rooms and open the vents into the roof space when required, which means that the replacement air for the roof space will be partially supplied through these vents. This method will also help ventilate the house and reduce the risk of mould during warm and humid weather.
Solar Whiz can be used across a large number of applications including:
- Consulting rooms
- Warehouses and storage facilities
- Day care instructions
- Nursing homes
Retrofitting is easy, but every new building should incorporate one or more Solar Whiz fans to improve energy efficiency and comfort levels.
Solar Whiz is powered by a low voltage solar panel and does not require an electrician – or connection to a power point. No wiring means that the Solar Whiz can be installed quickly and effectively on the roof by any handyman. Ask for a copy of our detailed DIY instructions.
The Solar Whiz can be turned to face the sun no matter which way the roof is facing – so not having a north facing roof is no problem! The adjustable PV panel mounting allows you to choose a suitable angle (up to 80 degrees) for any pitch – even if your roof faces south.
