Customer Reviews

Very coolingThis fan was easy to install and does a very good job of cooling my attic. It replaced a 120VAC fan that was noisy and did not cool very well. This one drops the attic temperature over 25 deg. F during a Florida afternoon and does it QUIETLY. I did not get the thermostat but I would recommend getting it. I will be installing it this winter.5Replacement to an AC gable vent The price was good enough to allow me to replace my old AC gable vent (that I did not realize had frozen up until recently) with a solar vent. It is not any quieter than the AC model (they both echo through the house framing), but it is mounted solidly to the frame so I think it will get quieter once I add rubber isolation mounts. I should also state that it is not any louder than the AC model it replaced when mounted to the same location. 4Good for the greenhouseMy husband installed it pretty fast and I didn't hear any cursing so you know it must have been easy to do. Has been working ever since we bought it so for about 5 months now without any problem. Put it in the greenhouse so we don't really notice any sound from the fan. Pretty much takes care of itself. Everytime I got out there if it is sunny the fan is going. No complaints about this product.UPDATED: 3/20/14 Okay the fan is still in the greenhouse and still works. When its sunny it is running. Lasted outside subzero temps. Pretty amazing.5Works, but noisy, and not fast, and box is confusing.I bought this for a roof vent (not a gable vent) hoping to improve my attic ventilation. The fan and solar panel work. They are helpful at pushing hot air out of the attic. But the speed at which the fan works is not that impressive. I would compare it to a standard three-speed electric room fan set to low, at best. When the sun is low in the sky and not striking the panel directly, the fan slows down even more, of course.When I first installed this fan just a few days ago, I waited 10 minutes, keeping one eye on a thermometer that I had up in my attic. The temperature did not budge. It was 99 deg. F and it stayed 99 deg. F. The solar panel was getting lots of direct sun. I thought maybe it would take more time for the fan to show any results in my 1500 square-foot attic. So I returned to the attic the next day at the same time of day. The weather outside was about the same, or maybe a couple degrees warmer. My thermometer in the attic now read 100 deg. F. I was disappointed. But then I noticed that my thermometer was located two or three feet above the roof vent. I moved the thermometer to a point closer to the vent, and three or four feet below the fan. After an hour, the temperature was still 100 deg. F. So I unplugged the fan. The next day, with the fan still off, I went back up in the attic at the same time of day. The weather outside was the same as the day before (about 70 deg. F). The temperature in my attic was now 114 deg. F. So here is my conclusion: In a 1500 sq. ft. attic with one of these units installed (and adequate intake/soffit vents) one of these fan/solar panel units can potentially lower the temperature in some areas of the attic by as much as 15 degrees, particularly if those areas are lower than the fan location, and near to the fan. I have decided that I will need more fans and/or solar panels in order to lower my attic temperature as much as I need to. (I want as little attic warming as possible to prevent ice dams.)The box has a chart on it that, according to one interpretation, suggests two of these units would be needed to ventilate a 1500 sq. foot attic. However, the chart is confusing. (See the images I have uploaded from the box.) The product description posted by the seller says one of these units can ventilate a 1500 sq. foot attic. This is not supported by the information on the box, nor by my own experience. The description posted here also says that the fan will move 1000 CFM "with additional solar panel". Not sure where this info comes from. I don't think I saw any concrete CFM numbers on the box, nor on the manufacturer's web site. Does "with additional solar panel" mean the included solar panel that comes with the fan, or do you have to buy a second panel to get the CFM up to 1000? I suspect the latter.Arguably, one good thing about this model is that you can apparently boost the fan speed and CFM by linking up solar panels in a series. It is not clear exactly how much of a boost you will get with each additional panel, though I would expect a second panel would almost double the power of the fan. I have not done this, but I am probably going to try to do it. The solar panels have accessory cables that would appear to make linking panels together very easy. By using two or more panels, it seems you could not only boost the peak power, but you could angle the panels in different directions to assure that the fan would keep running at a steady clip as the sun moves across the sky.The other problem with the fan is that it is noisy at times. In a quiet house you can sometimes hear it as it makes a distinctive humming noise. This noise comes and goes to depending on the speed of the fan. There is also occasionally a high pitched squeal as other reviewers have mentioned. The squeal is sometimes heard when the light level is very low. It is a sound reminiscent of the squeal made by my cordless drill when I just lightly press the trigger so that the drill barely starts to turn, but it is not as loud as my drill. Whether it is humming or squealing, the noise level is low enough that it is probably going to be tolerable in most situations. The sound would probably be masked by the sound of a central air conditioner, heavy traffic outside, high winds, a television, or even a noisy refrigerator. Adding insulation in your attic might be enough to block the sound, and is a good idea in any case. I would hesitate to put this fan above a bedroom, especially if you are a light sleeper. But it would be fine in a barn, greenhouse, etc. We are using it above our living room. We don't have much attic insulation, so we can sometimes hear the fan. It is tolerable for now. We are planning to add insulation, which should help block the noise.A couple other things worth mentioning: There is no mounting hardware included, except for the cable-anchors. I had to jerry-rig my own mounting apparatus using "L" shaped corner braces bolted to the aluminum frame of the panel. The good news is that both the panel and the fan appear to be rugged and durable. Contrary to what one other reviewer wrote, the fan is not flimsy. In my opinion, the fan is built like a tank. It is all heavy metal. I am not sure if this is a good thing. The heavy blades require more power to turn than plastic blades. Perhaps the momentum of the heavy blades is helpful to maintaining the fan speed, especially on a partly cloudy day.In retrospect, I would not have bought this fan/solar panel. It is noisy, and not very powerful. Also, the documentation is confusing and contradictory. But by the time I figured all this out, it was too late to return the item. Nonetheless, I think this unit would be helpful in some situations, especially where noise is not much of a concern. The price is at least reasonable given what the competition costs.For my next solar-powered attic fan, I want to try Rand Solar Powered Attic Gable Fan - 27 Watt Solar Panel - 1720 CFM Ventilator Fan - With Thermostat It appears to be a much more powerful fan for only a slightly higher price. It is advertised as quiet. I guess we will see.Update 4/13/11: I put a few drops of oil on the fan axle about a week ago. The fan has been much quieter since then. I can still hear it in my living room occasionally, especially as the light is waning, but usually I can't really hear it. I am planning to upload a video that shows the fan in action and lets you hear the noise (before it was oiled).3Rec`d fan frame a little bent. But bend it ...Rec`d fan frame a little bent .But bend it back so blades wasn`t rubbing against frame. Also frame edges and fan blades are sharp be careful got cut on finger. Installed in attic what a big difference. House really cooler . Fan is really quite compare to electric unit i replace it with. Thinking about buying another one4LetdownI read all the reviews before purchasing this fan. It sounded like the perfect product to circulate air in my 300 sq. ft. Shed. I was even prepared to build a better frame for the solar panel according to other users. Fan came in perfect condition and didn't take too long to install even considering I had to cut out and install gable vents. In addition I trimmed all branches and trees around shed for optimum sunlight.Once the fan was installed yes the fan immediately started turning.....however it didn't have enough power to blow out a candle let alone blow open the louvers on the vent. I checked on the fan on several occasions and yes sometimes it was spinning faster than others, but never enough to create any air movement. This was a huge let down.2Cost effective and easy to installThe Ventamatic solar gable attic ventilator works as advertised. It is inexpensive, easy to install if you have a standard gable and can access it from inside the roof. There is a question regarding the quality and durability of the fan. The fan housing mount looks flimsy and was a bit out of round when I received it, but it works. The fan is quiet at regular speed in full sunlight, but vibrates with a low whine on acceleration and deceleration as the sun comes and goes behind clouds. One solar panel was adequate for my attic, and it is convenient and easy to add a second if you need more air volume moved.4do researchThe fan was packaged well with no dings on the box, but one of the fan blades had a chunk sheared up, about half the size of a dime, how their q/a missed that and still sent it is puzzling. But there is more; it is supposed to ship with 8 screws to mount the fan housing posts, I only got 4, and the 8 screws used to mount the roof clamps to the solar panel were too small, I ended up using pop rivets instead. All this after I ordered 2 day delivery to arrive according to amazon on Saturday, it did not arrive until the following business day. This company sells extra solar panels at $136, so this means the fan costs $90??? Save yourself money and buy a 12v fan, you can get a good one for around $50-$60 and a 40w solar panel, not a 12w, for less than $150. The fan works good but this set up is way overpriced. For the same money you can get a more powerful solar panel and fan. I have over 15 years as an aircraft mechanic (lots of sheet metal work) and a couple years working on electronics with an electronics degree. I have noticed only about a 5 degree drop in my attic temp, which is 1000 sq ft with a 4 ft center height.2fan isn't the highest quality, but works greatI found the fan to be kind of flimsy, but it is efficient and effective. I noticed results on the first hot day. The interior of my house stayed cool all day without the need for air conditioning. The air conditioner used to be ineffective on hot days due to the attic heat and lack of ventilation.This solves that problem nicely. I installed one fan in the gable and put the solar panel nearby on the south facing side of the roof.3Expensive application specific productPurchased this to cool less than 1K square FT of attic space in Eastern Washington. We see temperatures of over 100 degrees and my attic was baking and giving off heat until 2 am.I didn't want to cut holes in my sheet metal roof that would be required with other Attic fans. I also didn't want to deal with Electrical wiring, permits, hazards or potential fire.PROS:This fan works, is easy to install and is quite when operating at full speed. There is plenty of long cord for the panel so it can be placed optimally. Once you pay for this fan you won't have any future electric costs for it. It should last for decades as I believe its a brush less motor and electricity prices will definitely rise in the future.CONS:When there is almost no sun in the early morning or evening this fan has an annoying high pitched sound. When I observe this the fan is not running. This is a problem because I have it installed in my gable vent above my deck. This fan is also extremely expensive compared to wired versions or passive squire cage vents that are simply powered by the breeze. These types of fans work just as well and cost under $[...]. If you read the product info you need a second pannel to get the fan up to speeds where it would cool 1K square foot so if your space that you are cooling is say over 500sq ft. You need to spend another $[...] for an optional second panel (that is easy to install) I ordered one of these. So you are spending over $[...] for an attic fan. If you live in a cabin off grid this is a good product or if you love solar and don't mind spending the money. Otherwise save your$ and get some passive venting.Overall. I like the FAN, it works but is very expensive.3Very easy installI bought this product to help cool the attic of our home (about 1300 sq ft). I know the product is not made to cool something with that much open space but, I have a plan on purchasing additional hardware (another fan and panel combo and two more panels).I layed everything out on my porch and connected it up to test the hardware before installing it, literally is was only two wires to plug in. With the panel laying out in the full sun and the fan on my table, it turned right on. It was good to be able to see the fan working. It also gave me the opportunity to check a couple of things:1. See how much air flow the fan does put out2. Check for noises,etcThe only time the fan assembly makes noises is when there is not enough power (i.e. not enough direct sun on the solar panel). The noise is noticable, but not overbearing. I have installed my fan assembly on the gable over my bedroom and do not hear the whining noise at all inside the house. I hear it slightly when standing directly underneath of the gable outside, but only barely.Installation: I made my framing for the fan itself and mounted it before even climbing into the attic. I also installed the mounts onto the solar panel frame. I literally was able to climb on the roof, drill a hole for the cable, mount the solar panel to the roof and caulk the holes in less than a half hour (includes putting up and taking down the ladder and hauling the tools - cordless drill/screwdriver, caulk, screws and solar panel). I also was finished in the attic in under a half hour, I do confess I had my wife climb up with me, hold the fan and mount in place and hand me tools. It was a very easy install and the included nail in mounts to hold the wire, were very helpful.Cons:Shipping: The package did show up beat up and I could hear the parts knocking against each other when I slightly shook the package. I thought the solar panel would be broken, but it made it in one piece. The fan assembly, mounts and screw packages were poorly packed for shipping.Directions: I only have one minor issue with the directions that were sent with the equipment. The directions were obviously for an older model with different mounting points. It was easy to figure it out, but could confuse people.All in all I am happy with the product, and will be purchasing more soon to more thoroughly cool the attic.4
