Solar-Powered Attic Fans
APEX Thermal Services is pleased to announce another service to help lower your bills! APEX Thermal Services has begun installing Solar Powered Attic Fans. The use air conditioning and even fans, during the hot summer months can cause a noticeable spike in your electrical bills. A solar-powered attic fan consists of an attic fan with a DC-powered motor and a dedicated solar electric (photo-voltaic or PV) panel, to supply free power during the hot sunny days of summer. We are proudly installing solar powered attic fans manufactured in the USA, by "Attic Breeze", providing a lifetime warranty for residential applications (the best warranty of manufacturers in this category). These units can operate standalone or in conjunction with existing ventilation systems. The best utility savings will come from taking your attic ventilation off-grid, because the energy these fans use is totally free!
If you don't already have AC powered attic ventilation, you stand to save in three ways:
1) there is no need to run expensive electrical lines to power solar-powered attic fans
2) the power to run your solar-powered attic ventilator is totally free
3) by cooling down your attic during peak sunny conditions, your fans/air conditioning system(s) serving your living space wont have to work as hard, saving you even more on your electric bill
If you do have an AC powered attic fan, installing a solar powered fan removes that energy usage and associated costs directly from your electric bill.
The average solar attic fan installation will cost roughly $1,100-$1,200 per unit. Your attic may require a larger fan, multiple fans, and/or ventilation improvements, so our assessment and final installation cost will be based on your exact situation. What you gain with this type of investment is a more comfortable home, with lower air-conditioning costs and a properly ventilated attic, resulting in no operating costs. Remember, it is totally off-the-grid!
Solar-Powered Attic Fans are eligible for 55% Solar Tax Credits in NY (30% Federal, 25% NY State)! If you install this equipment on your primary residence, you should be eligible to recoup 55% of the total installed cost, on your next tax return.
