The only thing which comes to mind for most people when talking about rooftop solar is the solar panel, but there is another product which can be installed on your rooftop and that is a solar attic fan. A solar attic fan is a standalone ventilation system which is small in size and configured on your attic roof top. Similar to other attic fans, they help in cooling your attic in hot summers by siphoning out the extremely hot attic air.
Solar attic fans lower your attic temperature by reducing the hot air, which helps your AC to work more effectively. Solar attic fans help you in keeping the pressure at safe level to provide effective airflow. By removing extra heat from your home attic you will reduce the load on your air conditioner and not require to run it so often. And a cooler attic space also means better for storage, as extremely hot temperatures can damage certain items.
These fans will use power generated from sunlight and you will get your carbon footprint reduced by less consumption of fossil fuel. During summers, your asphalt shingles can get excessively heated. These changes in weather weaken the installed shingles and can damage your rooftop, and of course force your AC to do double duty as that extremely hot attic air smothers your interior space.
Unlike the other attic fans, solar attic fans produce very less noise. It will never disturb you at night and you can take a break-free sleep. They are very simple to install and you can always hire a solar expert's help to get this installed on your rooftop.
All the benefits you will be getting by a installing solar attic fan in your home will help you to save money, while also having a more comfortable home. And remember that government also gives incentives to the homeowners and businesses for installing solar energy systems of every kind.

Many people are moving towards solar energy to complete their home energy needs and it has become very popular. People have started appreciating solar energy as the best alternative source of home energy. You also feel a sense of satisfaction by using a renewable form of energy which helps you in making your environment green and healthier. Before you make that important solar investment in your home, it is very important to consider few helpful things.
Most solar panels will be highly effective and will be able to give you consistent energy when they are getting enough sunlight throughout the day. It is necessary to analyze how much sun light is open to your rooftop and judge how effective your solar panel will be when installed on roof top. You should check the nearby trees, and if they can obstruct sun to your roof today or in the future. Shade is one of the main factors that contribute to an under-performing solar system.
Once the amount of sunlight is determined, you need to check on the quality of your roof and see if it can take the weight of solar panels. It is always better to get some roof repair work done before the solar panel installation. Installing a new solar system on a roof that is weak or in need of repair, can be a recipe for disaster where your entire solar investment is wasted.
The other thing you need to determine is your energy requirement and the required size of the solar installation. You should get a thorough energy audit done with the help of a solar expert by keeping your current and future energy needs in mind. You would also be required to upgrade your home appliances to make your home more energy efficient.
