Solar Whiz - Solar Powered Roof Ventilator
The Solar Whiz is a powerful solar ventilator & heat extractor fan that operates completely without mains electricity. Keeps your house cooler in summer by extracting hot air from your roof cavity.
* Important: Delivery Costs to be confirmed after order placement
Due to the size of SolarWhiz systems, delivery costs vary depending on system components and delivery address. If delivery is required, you will be provided with an estimated delivery cost after order confirmation (or call us for a chat before ordering).
At least 15 times more effective than standard whirlybirds
The Solar Whiz is like a super-charged Whirly-Bird. The solar panel powers a fan that actively pumps hot air out of your roof 15 times faster than a traditional Whirly-Bird.
The Solar Whiz can significantly reduce your cooling costs by using solar power to actively pump the hot air out of your ceiling, replacing it with cooler air.
Amazingly simple and incredibly effective. Don't spend another summer without it!
Turns On Automatically
The Solar Whiz will automatically turn on whenever there is enough sun on the solar panel, synchronising perfectly with when heat is building up in your roof cavity. With the optional (but highly recommended) fixed thermostat it will only switch on when the temperature in your roof exceeds 30 degrees Celsius, meaning it won't operate in winter, helping to keep your home warmer.
You also have the option of installing a fully adjustable thermostat and/or a Night-Time Operation Kit, which allows Solar Whiz to operate during those hot summer nights even after the sun goes down.These options are perfect if you are installing the Solar Whiz in a habitable roof space, such as a loft room.
The Solar Whiz is robustly built and highly efficient. All parts are made from the highest quality components so you can be confident that your Solar Whiz will tick away for years and years to come with little or no maintenance.
How Does The SolarWhiz Work?
What are Eave Vents?
Venting hot air from the top of your roof only works efficiently if you have an inlet for cooler outside air. Older tile roofs are often OK, with plenty of gaps between the tiles and no sarking, some tin roofs are OK, but to ensure optimal performance of your Solar Roof Ventilation System, we strongly recommend the installation of Eave Vents. The number of Vents required depends on the size of the Solar Whiz unit installed. Recommended number of Vents is provided below:
- SW-RAF900 = 4 Vents
- SW-RAF1400 = 6 Vents
- SW-RAF2100 = 8 Vents
It is recommended that you include the specified number of Vents in your online order. All eave vents are bushfire rated as standard.
The SW-RAF900 extractor fan will provide enough roof ventilation for a standard pitched home up to around 16 squares or 150 square metres.
The SW-RAF1400 extractor fan would be suitable for those who want extra roof ventilation power and improved results or people with larger homes up to about 25 squares or about 225 square metres.
The more powerful SW-RAF2100 extractor fan is suitable for extra large homes up to about 33 squares or 300 square meters – it is also ideal for smaller commercial applications where significant amounts of air need to be moved. For example warehouses, factories, office buildings, sheds, stables, etc.
The Solar Whiz currently has four different sized roof ventilators:
- SW-RAF700 – Moves 700 m3/h (Cubic Metres of Air Per Hour)
- SW-RAF900 – Moves 900 m3/h (Cubic Metres of Air Per Hour)
- SW-RAF1400 – Moves 1400 m3/h (Cubic Metres of Air Per Hour)
- SW-RAF2100 – Moves 2100 m3/h (Cubic Metres of Air Per Hour)
Your average whirlybird moves approximately 100 m3/h, so as you can see the Solar Whiz roof ventilator moves 7 to 21 times more air.
We have experienced installers available in the Melbourne Metro and Castlemaine areas. Please contact us to arrange an installation quote.
Standard installation includes supply and installation of flashing. It is against company policy to install any unit on Asbestos roofs. Installation on flat roofs, multi story premises or roofs with poor access will incur an additional fee.
