How Does Solar Roof Ventilation Work?
Are you sick and tired of sweltering through the Aussie Summer in your own home, either too scared to use the air con because of ridiculous running costs or forking out huge $$$ through your power bill to live comfortably. If you’re after something that has a $0 running cost and can greatly reduce or even eliminate the need to run your air conditioner, then a solar roof vent is the product for you.
For lack of a better comparison we will say that a solar roof ventilation does a similar job to that of a whirlybird. However solar powered roof ventilation is far more effective and can give you the same benefit as having 15 whirlybirds on your roof! In Summer roof temperatures often exceed 700c, which has a big impact of the temperature in your home as roof heat build-up radiates into your living space. By installing a solar powered vent to extract the roof heat, you can reduce the temperature in your roof by up to 300c.
The basics of how a solar roof fan works are very simple. A solar panel on top of the roof vent provides the power required to run the motor, whenever it is exposed to direct sunlight. The motor then runs the fan which extracts the heat from your roof, drawing cool air in through the air flow vent which is installed under the eaves (refer to above diagram).
The Solar Ark solar roof vents are Australia’s highest performing solar vent and have features and qualities that set them apart. They use a brushless DC motor making it virtually noiseless during operation. The Solar Ark solar roof vent comes standard with a built in thermostat that shuts down operation when ambient temperatures drop below 240c, which prevents the roof vent from drawing valuable heat out during the colder periods.
Solar roof vents need to be installed on a North facing roof to be fully effective as this will give them the most sunlight in Australia. Solar Ark have 2 models for North facing roofs called the SAV-20 and SAV-30, which produce different air flow rates. They also have a SAV-20T which comes with an adjustable tilt frame for the solar panel, which allows it to be installed on non-North facing roofs.
Solar roof ventilation systems are not just great for homes, they are commonly used for sheds, workshops, factories, warehouses, office spaces, schools and animal enclosures.
