Upgrade your home and save up to $180 per year through the use of the Broan Solar Powered Attic Ventilator. As a green product requirng only energy from the sun and no additional electricity, you can put the money you might have spent on powering an electrical ventilator back into your pocket.

Product Features

  • 28-watt solar panel captures sunlight from dawn to dusk and efficiently converts it into electric power to keep your attic cool and dry all day long, providing 537 Maximum CFM and year round protection for the structure of your home
  • 12” diameter, one-piece aluminum 5-blade fan is pitched for maximum air flow to keep your living area cooler, extend the life of your air conditioner and save energy and money
  • Compact base footprint means fewer shingles to cut for easier, faster installation
  • Low profile, integrated design for an attractive, unobtrusive addition to your roof without the need for props or pivoting stands used by some manufacturers
  • Rugged, tempered glass solar panel withstands large hail and won’t delaminate so you can be confident in its reliability, functionality and attractive appearance
  • Housing is a molded design of UV-stabilized, color-dyed, rugged ABS plastic that withstands hail and resists fading to remain attractive for years; may also be painted to match your roof color
  • Housing frame features positive stops to “seat” the dome for fast, easy installation
  • Direct-current, variable voltage motor is dynamically balanced for superior performance and silent operation for years of worry-free operation
  • Includes stainless steel fasteners and galvanized steel brackets for durability and corrosion resistance, and aluminum, heavy-gauge screen to keep out insects, animals or birds without impeding airflow
  • Optional thermostat is easy to install and disables the motor when the temperature dips below 50-degrees, to extend motor life; recommended for climates where cold weather condensation isn’t a concern

In addition to your energy savings throughout the year, you save even more with a 30% Federal Tax Credit on both the purchase price and installation costs of your Solar Powered Attic Ventilator. Section 25D of the Internal Revenue Code provides a 30% tax credit to individuals for "qualified solar electric property expenditures" made by the taxpayer during taxable years beginning after December 31, 2008.

Broan 345SO Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solar power attic ventilator The product was easily installed, while installing a new shingle roof, and both units appear to be working great. The only negative issue about this product is it should include the CWT45 Thermostat, which is sold separately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Easy to install and working like a charm. Haven't had a chance to evaluate the thermostat yet because the weather has been over 50 degrees in the daytime.

  • How does the unit operate differently without a thermostat?
