We continue our solar attic fan ratings with an alphabetical list of manufacturers and reviews of their products.
The SAF-20G model is a gable mounted unit that has an integrated thermostat and stainless steel hardware for durability. The solar panel is not integrated into the unit and the warranty is not very good when compared to other brands.
This brand is a part of GIBRALTAR INDUSTRIES and offers both roof mount and gable mounted models. The units do not use a thermostat which means that, whenever the sun is out, the units are running. This would be acceptable in very warm areas but not in areas where a portion of the year requires heating the home. They offer three sizes of roof mounted units with integrated panels where the panel can be tilted and rotated to maximize the solar gain. The guarantee on the units is not very good when compared to other brands.
The ZEPHYR series of attic fans are available in two sizes to match the requirements of the size of the home. They feature stainless steel mounting hardware and a powder coat finish for durability. The units are sold through dealers and are backed by a lifetime warranty.
This brand offers a variety of models including curb mount, flush mount, gable, and remote mounted units. The roof mounted units have a low profile and a compact footprint for better looks and all of the units have stainless steel hardware for durability. The warranty on the units is not very good when compared to other brands and the thermostat is an option instead of being a standard feature of the units.
