SolarXVENT - Solar Powered Ventilator

Introducing Bradford's new solar powered ventilator SolarXVENT.

SolarXVENT is a solar roof ventilator that helps reduce the temperature and humidity in the roof cavity. When SolarXVENT’s panel is exposed to the sun light the fan is activated, exhausting heat and humidity. This can help:

  • Reduce summer temperatures inside the roof which can reach temperatures of up to 70°C
  • Reduce the cost of running air conditioning
  • Maintain the performance of ceiling insulation

In cooler months, damp air rises into the roof space which could cause potentially damaging condensation. SolarXVENT can help by removing this hot and damp air to: 

  • Reduce the risk of condensation formation to help prevent mould and its effects on allergy and asthma sufferers 
  • Reduce the risk of moisture damage to plasterboard and timber 

Recommended Ventilation Levels

If your roof is a regular shape, one vent is sufficient for around 10 squares (90m2)
