Solatube International Launches News Line of Solar Attic Fans Called Solar Star

Solatube International Inc., the worldwide leading manufacturer and marketer of Tubular Daylighting Devices (TDDs), has introduced a new line of its highly popular Solar Star attic fans. The company, whose product lineup has featured other bestselling photovoltaic residential attic fans since 2000, has expanded and advanced the category.

In addition to the existing line of products, a 22-watt model (RM 1600), which is a more powerful option for larger and steeper attic spaces, has been added to the family.

Solar Star attic fans work with a roof-mount vent which draws hot air and moisture out of the attic and discharges it to the exterior, providing an even, continuous flow of air. Solar Star products are available in different sizes and for different roof types, including an interior-mount model.

The Solar Star family of attic fans features:

  •     Climate control: Regulates attic temperature to make living spaces more comfortable
  •     Reduction in damaging moisture: Helps eliminate mold and prolong roof life
  •     Prevention of ice damming: Keeps attic ventilated and eliminates ice buildup
  •     Resistance to extreme weather: Select Solar Star fans meet High Velocity Hurricane Zone requirements
  •     Solar-powered design – no electricity needed: Build-in photovoltaic power helps reduce electric bills
  •     Ease of installation: Installs quickly without wiring; leak-proof flashing is compatible with all roof types

As an added incentive, there is a 30 percent tax credit (up to $1,500) on the purchase and installation of all Solar Star Attic Fans through 2012. For details, please visit Solatube’s Federal Tax Credit Information Center.

Retail price quotes are available through Solatube dealers. For more information, please visit
