Solatube International Inc., the worldwide leading manufacturer and marketer of Tubular Daylighting Devices (TDDs), has a complete line of highly effective solar –powered attic fans. Solar Star Attic Fans feature a discreet and clean design while utilizing the sun’s energy to power the high-performance motor.

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 models with two solar panel wattage capacities to fit the needs of different roof types. Interior-mount models can be placed on existing vents to maximize air flow without adding an additional element on the roof. All fans can be installed in two hours or less.
