Features of the Natural Light 16 Watt Solar Attic Fan - Gray
Adjustable Solar Panel
The Natural Light Solar Attic Fan incorporates a high impact photovoltaic solar panel with a 25 year warranty. Natural Light has developed a unique adjustable mounting bracket that allows the solar panel to be positioned in the angle where it will collect the most sunlight to provide optimum fan performance. The mounting bracket also allows air to continually circulate around the solar panel keeping it cool for a consistent output. Many of our competitors offer a fixed solar panel that can hinder the units' performance.
Commercial Pure Grade Aluminum Housing
The solar attic fan housing is constructed of 1100 series, commercial pure grade aluminum with no seams to prevent leaking. Because it is exposed to the harsh effects of the environment on a daily basis, Natural Light powder-coats the unit both inside and out for extra-durability. Many of our competitors either paint only the outside or do not paint the unit at all. Also, many of our competitors use less durable materials to house their attic fans including polypropylene (plastic), sheet metal or galvanized steel.
Powerful, Quiet Direct Current Motor
The Natural Light Solar Attic Fan utilizes a German engineered direct current motor. The motor is precision balanced to achieve low motor vibration and low motor noise. Additionally, the motor sits in an isolation bracket to further ensure a smooth, quiet operation. Each motor undergoes individual motor winding testing to ensure consistent motor performance. Natural Light backs up the solar attic fan motor with a 25 year warranty. Some of our competitors use lower grade motors with much shorter warranties.
5-Wing Fan Blade
Natural Light Solar Attic Fans incorporate a five-wing, precision balanced blade for the highest cfm output. The fan blades are manufactured using a non-corrosive aluminum to withstand all weather conditions. Many of our competition offer only 3 or 4 blades and some are made of plastic.
Protective Animal Screen
The interior of a Natural Light Solar Attic Fan is protected by a stainless steel wire screen mesh. The screen keeps out debris, bugs, birds and small rodents while allowing air to circulate freely. Some of our competitors use lower grade mesh such as plastic or steel that rusts over time.
Commercial Pure Grade Aluminum Flashing
The flashing is extremely important component as it is responsible for keeping your roof from leaking. The Natural Light Solar Attic Fan flashing is constructed of 1100 series, commercial pure grade aluminum with no seams. Its round shape minimizes damage to roof shingles and enables it to withstand the stresses of expansion and contraction due to the temperature variations. Many of our competitors use lower grade galvanized materials or even plastic. Both the flashing and housing are powder-coated inside and out for extra durability. Many of our competitors either paint only the outside or do not paint the unit at all. Also, many of our competitors less durable materials such as polypropylene (plastic), sheet metal or galvanized steel for the flashing of their solar attic fans.

Solar Attic Fan Residential Unit Estimator
The charts below should be used as a general guideline for how many Solar Attic Fans are needed for residential installations based on square footage and roof pitch. Several factors can effect the amount of attic ventilation needed. Variables such as vaulted ceilings, amount of existing static venting (soffit, ridge, gable), attic shape, pitch and obstructions must all be taken into account when calculating the amount of attic venting needed.
