Solazone Night Operation and daytime current booster for cloudy days

Now you can operate your solar ventilator at night, long after the sun has gone down, and also run at full power on hot, cloudy, muggy days.

 

Solazone ventilator night pack

This mains-power Night Operation Pack cuts in whenever the sun is not shining bright enough to run the fan.    It boosts the solar ventilator from the mains during the day whenever the sunlight is reduced or the day is cloudy.    And it will run the Solar Roof Ventilator at night, as well.    Ideal for very hot homes or workplaces, or stuffy or dusty environments, that you want to clear the air overnight so that they are nice and fresh by morning.

The top-up of power works completely automatically and will operate the fan from solar or from the mains power at any time, based only on the thermostat setting.   It is simple to install the Solazone Night Pack at any time by connecting to the terminal block underneath the Solazone roof ventilator.

Metal Eave Vents

Metal Eave Vents assist directing the flow of replacement cooler air inside the roof space, and ensure the cooler replacement air will remove heat from all of the ceiling area.  Encourage cool air to pass across the most important parts of the ceiling, that you want to keep the rooms below cool, by fitting the Metal Eave Vents nearest to there.   Make a simple air-flow diagram, showing air-flow from the eave vents to the solar ventilator, to properly locate the Metal Eave Vents.

Galvanised, white painted Eave Vent for solar roof ventilator

Galvanised, white painted Eave Vent

Eave vents are made from powder-coated, galvanized steel with 1.9mm holes, and are bushfire rated, to comply with Australian Standards.  

Metal Eave Vent Dimensions:   

Outside dimensions: 450mm x 250mm    Hole size required: 400mm x 200mm

Price:  $36 each, complete with mounting screw set.

We recommend installing Eave Vents when installing a solar ventilator to ensure sufficient airflow through the roof cavity.   A minimum of four eave vents should be used for each installation, one vent on each side of the house, to encourage even airflow into the roof cavity.

If the house has no eaves then an alternative needs to be found. You can use tile vents or cowls near the corners of the houses. Remember, air behaves like people – it takes the path of least resistance – meaning that the Solar Ventilator will draw the most air from the biggest or nearest vents.  Another alternative may be to use a gable vent (if the house has a gable) as a fresh air inlet.

Alternatively, ceiling vents draw replacement roofspace air from inside the house, and can also be used – and are especially effective for, double story houses – you can install a ceiling vent in the top floor ceiling.   Or if the house has a garage you can install a ceiling vent inside the garage to improve airflow, and to cool the garage.

 

Adjustable Ceiling Vents

Drawing the air directly from the ceiling of rooms within a house or building, can assist in cooling the rooms, as well as cooling the roof space above.   Ceiling vents are closeable, so that when the building is being heated, they may be closed to prevent loss of heat into the ceiling space.

Installing ceiling vents allows the Solar Roof Ventilator to also cool the rooms

The most common use of these ceiling vents is to remove the hottest air directly from uncomfortably hot rooms, or upstairs areas of larger houses.

Height (open) 97 mm 114 mm 140 mm 180 mm
 Price 2024 $48 $55 $65 $75

Ceiling vents can also used to reduce humidity, damp, mould or mildew problems within houses.  A ceiling vent installed in the top of a cupboard, or walk-in robe, or room that is badly affected by poor air circulation, will change the room entirely.   In bad cases, a ceiling vent may need to be installed in more than one room of the house, to provide good fresh air circulation, and remove all the damp or stale air.   Installing ceiling vents can also be in addition to installing eave vents.   When installing ceiling vents, it is recommended to use a larger model solar ventilator to allow for the extra space being ventilated, as the air may be drawn from both the roof space/eave vents and from the interior of the house.

 

As a guest, I would like to offer you a free copy of my ebook “Cooling your home for free” (usually $9.95) to help you understand the simple principles to be followed to get the most effective performance from fitting these devices.  Enjoy the read, and any helpful comments would be appreciated.
