To help Kiwis efficiently combat the sweltering heat that this summer has brought, as well as to keep wallets and the environment safe from harm, Hometech has the perfect ventilation system solution: the SolarStar Roof Fan. This solar-powered fan extracts hot air from the roof space to keep homes cool and dry.
The SolarStar Roof Fan only runs on solar power, requiring no electricity at all. This helps combat greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. Sunlight is sustainable and virtually inexhaustible, unlike other common resources, making it a clean and green alternative source of energy.
It Cools Homes Efficiently
The roof is like a hat for homes: it protects us from the sun’s rays, but it also collects this heat inside the roof space. This collected heat builds up and saturates, and is then pushed down making homes stuffy and uncomfortable. The SolarStar works to efficiently cool homes right from the problem’s source — the roof space.
It Protects Homes
Heat and moisture that is trapped in the roof space can cause severe damage to a home over time. Roof structures deteriorate, wooden materials rot, and mould and mildew can collect in the roof space. Proper roof space ventilation helps to reduce excess heat and moisture, keeping the roof space cool and dry. This effectively protects homes from these potentially dangerous and costly damages.
Installation is Quick and Easy
Installing a SolarStar is extremely quick and easy — taking an hour or even less to install. It doesn’t require any wiring work since it is 100% run by solar power. It also comes in different models and sizes, allowing application for all types of roofs. With a sleek, unobtrusive design, the SolarStar can be installed hassle-free and even has a five year warranty on the solar panel and motor.
It Saves Money
The SolarStar Roof Fan offers savings on all fronts. It prevents expensive roof damage while also saving money on power bills. Installing a SolarStar will save homeowners approximately 25% on their monthly electrical bills if they're currently using artificial cooling solutions like air conditioning and fans. Additionally, preserving the roof structure and the roof space helps avoid all sorts of expensive repairs, or worse, entire roof replacements.
