SolarStar Roof Fan - RM1600
Description

Heat and moisture can harm houses. Solar Star Roof Fans reduce these effects, helping to keep the house cool in summer and protecting it from harm during winter.

Harnessing the sun’s energy, these fans use no electricity to effectively ventilate your roof space. Solar Star Fans cost nothing to operate and are virtually maintenance-free.  Since Solar Star Fans prevent heat and moisture from reaching critical levels, the roof space stays cool and dry. The result is greater comfort, lower air conditioning costs, and prolonged roof life.

SolarStar can be installed by Hometech's nationwide Certified Installers.
