  14. 14. 4<br />PAGE<br />ATTIC VENTING PROCESS<br />Why is solar attic ventilation necessary?<br />Heat builds inside an improperly vented attic<br />The sun beats down on the roof and heats up the enclosed attic space. Passive vents, such as soffit or gable, allow some air circulation, but do not provide the pressure needed to force out the hot air.<br />
  15. 15. 5<br />PAGE<br />ATTIC VENTING PROCESS<br />How does it work?<br />A solar attic fan provides air circulation<br />The photovoltaic panel on the solar attic fan collects sunlight which powers the fan’s motor and provides air circulation in the attic space. <br />
  16. 16. 6<br />PAGE<br />ATTIC VENTING PROCESS<br />How does it work?<br />Air circulation moves hot air out of the attic space<br />The increased air circulation provides the pressure needed to force out the hot air from your attic. Attic venting can cool an attic space by up to 40 degrees.<br />
