Cool your attic and protect your home all year long.

Heat and moisture are your home’s enemies. Solar Star Ventilation Fans deliver an eco-friendly approach to neutralize moisture and drive out heat, keeping your home cool in summer and protecting it from harm during the winter.

Summer cooling

When the heat of summer hits, it needs to be vented from your attic to keep living spaces comfortable, air conditioning units from overworking, and roof structures and materials from deteriorating.

Solar Star Ventilation Fans:

  • • Pulls heat from your attic and structure of your home
  • • Provide a more comfortable interior
  • • Lower air conditioning energy bills

Winter protection

When ice, snow, and cold temperatures outside combine with excess humidity inside, it can do serious damage to your home’s structure.

Solar Star Ventilation Fans safeguard your attic from winter damage by:

  • • Equalizing attic and exterior temperatures
  • • Eliminating damage to insulation and framing materials produced by moisture
  • • Avoiding leaks and structural decay from ice damming
  • • Mitigating weakened internal structures caused by mold and fungus growth
