Solar Room Ventilators
New ways to ventilate rooms and living spaces, using solar-powered, low energy fans to silently transfer heat, remove humidity or bad smells, moisture and dust.
1. Remove hot, stuffy air from the ceiling, directly to outside.
Simple, silent, quality Solar Heat Extractor kits make a huge difference.
- Remove hot air from inside the home, living areas or bedrooms, from the highest part of the ceiling to outside.
- The hottest air in the room is up near the ceiling, extract it and dump it outside.
- Choose somewhere central, or far from open windows or doors, to draw fresh replacement air across the living area.
- In double story houses, if you ventilate upstairs (eg. the landing) the whole house becomes more livable.
- You will be surprised at the difference it makes, as the air is drawn upstairs, and the heat expelled outside.
Good quality solar ventilation systems are relatively inexpensive to buy, and cost nothing to run at all.
You can cut household air-conditioning costs to just a small fraction, because air conditioners will run more efficiently, and on most days, won’t even be needed!
From the ceiling of the room, out to the eaves – automatically dispose of heat, without making any holes in the roof itself !
- Remove the heat from the ceiling of the living area and gently exhaust it all day, every day, through a neat diffuser mounted in the eaves outside.
- Control your environment by means of a variable thermostat, for completely automatic operation – you just set your desired comfort level.
- The very quiet inline fan operates from a solar panel on the roof.
- Sound-insulating flexible duct is included for strong, silent operation.
- Automatic check valve stops drafts.
- Optional plug-in night pack for after-dark operation.
- Closable ceiling and eave vents are included in every installation kit, along with easy-to-follow installation instructions.

2. Transfer cool air from outside the house to inside.
Solar-powered in-line fans transfer cool air from outside, under the house, or any other cool, convenient place.
They are easily installed using a solar panel to run the inline fan.
We recommend using insulated ducting to keep the air cool and fresh, and the sound to a minimum.
Be comfortable during those hot summer days.
- Transfer cool air from under the house into the living area, running all day, every day.
- Controlled by a variable thermostat fitted in the house, for completely automatic operation, so you can set your own comfort level.
- Alternatively, you can install the wall-mounted ducted transfer fan, to pump fresh air into your living space all day.
- Control by the thermostat, which also has an on-off switch.
- Night pack, and battery packs are available with these ventilating fan kits, as optional add-ons.

4. Mini Whiz for ventilating small spaces, shipping containers, pantry, dog kennel, etc.
Ideal for Cabins, Granny flats, Shacks, Sheds, Kitchens, Bathrooms, Toilets, Dog kennel, etc.
There are two models available – one has the solar panel built-in, and is suited to installation on sunny walls. There is no additional wiring required
The other model has the solar panel separate from the ventilator unit, giving the flexibility of mounting the ventilator in a position that is out of the sun.
Two methods of operation – sucks air our, or blows air in.
Mini Whiz units are capable of ventilation either through air extraction or by introducing fresh air.
By combining extraction and introduction of fresh air, superior cross flow ventilation can be achieved when multiple units operate together.
Supplied with a re-chargeable battery – enabling the unit to run day and night to optimise the air quality in your chosen location.
No wiring, no plugs, no noise, and once installed no running cost whatsoever, and at a low competitive price – Mini Whiz could be the ideal solution to your ventilation problem.
Dimensions are 215mm wide, 235mm high, and 125mm out from the wall.
Hole size needed is 110mm, and depth of penetration into the hole is 50mm.

5. Solar Boat Ventilator
Applications include Boats (unit is waterproof), Caravans, Trailers and Vans etc.
If you own a boat – you know how difficult it is to keep it fresh and free of musty smells. You probably try to keep port-holes open to get a bit of air flowing through the cabin – or you may even have a small heater running constantly. Leaving hatches open when you are not using the boat may help – but exposes you to other risks.
The key to avoiding musty smells and prevent mould and mildew from developing is ventilation – ideally cross flow ventilation. The specially designed low profile Micro Whiz from Solar Whiz can be installed on any boat to ensure you have a ventilated and mould free environment.
The Micro Whiz is elegantly designed to prevent water entering the boat through the fan, which will only happen if the fan is completely submerged. To ensure maximum performance the micro Whiz is equipped with a rechargeable battery that enables the fan to run constantly to ensure the boat is ventilated around the clock.
The Micro Whiz is also whisper quiet.
Try this compact solar air ventilation system in your boat – you will be amazed how much more effective a small active ventilation system is than relying on a passive system of vents – and wonder why you didn’t do it earlier!
This solar ventilator has inbuilt battery so that it can run day and night, removing hot and stuffy air all the time.
Switch inside can turn off the unit when not required to run.

6. Solar Car Ventilator
– mounts in the window of your car, and keeps it cool while you are out shopping.
Simple to install and remove, this solar powered fan will reduce the inside temperature of your car when parked in the sun.
It blows the hot air out of the car and makes the task of cooling it down much faster. Although the car may still be warm when you enter it– the car will not be nearly as hot as without the Car Whiz.

7. Solar In-ground Cooling System
This cooling system uses the cooling effect of lower ground temperature to reduce the temperature indoors.
The In-Ground Cooling System cools your house or office by drawing fresh cooled air in through a series of pipes burried underground.
Ideally the air intake should be in a cool, shaded area outside, and the pipes installed in slightly damp ground e.g. where a garden is watered, as the evaporation of any moisture helps the performance of the cooling system. The Ground cooling system has proved very effective in Australian conditions, not only helping you to keep cool, but also ensuring good ventilation throughout summer.
Every installation is different, however based on customer feedback, the average system on a hot 35 degrees day supplies about 21 degrees cool air into your home without any running cost or carbon emissions.
