Green Vent Solar
he Green-Vent Solar is a solar powered vent that is controlled using a humidistat and a thermostat to ensure it runs only when required. The vent does not require wind to operate, has a fully adjustable solar panel, is extremely quiet and will keep your home cooler in summer and drier in winter.
The Green-Vent Solar has been specifically designed for New Zealand’s climate.
During summer the temperatures inside New Zealand homes can exceed 50°C in roof spaces, resulting in elevated temperatures as high as 30°C in living areas. During winter the roof space temperatures can drop to 15°C with the internal temperature dropping even lower. This is when condensation and moisture start to form. Controlled by a humidistat and a thermostat, the Green-Vent Solar will automatically switch on when temperature in the ceiling space reaches 27°C and switch off when it reaches 25°C. It will also switch on if the roof space reaches 75% relative humidity and switch off when the roof space reaches 65% relative humidity. This will cool your home when it is warm and reduce the amount of moisture build-up in the winter. This will be beneficial to the life of your insulation and the health of your home by reducing the amount of moisture in the roof space.
The Green-Vent Solar will also reduce your power consumption by minimising the requirement for use of cooling units in your home.
