East Coast Suspended Ceilings is now selling GREEN VENT SOLAR attic extractors - designed for NZ conditions. This quiet solar-powered vent uses a thermostat and humidistat to ensure it only runs when required. The vent will keep your home cooler during summer and drier during the winter...providing years of comfort at NO ENERGY COST!
During the summer, attic temperatures can exceed 50C making your home hot and uncomfortable.
During the winter, many homes (including modern airtight ones) experience condensation problems (which can permanently damage fibreglass insulation), dampness and toxic mould growth. GREEN VENT SOLAR is the perfect solution to this problem by switching on when the humidity is too high.
GREEN VENT SOLAR benefits 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 using cooling units in your home.
PLEASE VIEW THE INSTALL VIDEO BELOW
You can use the chart below to calculate the vents required for your installation.
ENVIRONMENT CONTROL SYSTEM
The Environment Control System (ECS) is an automated system for running the fan when environmental conditions demand it. A 12V solar panel powers the system, so if there is no sun, the unit will not operate.
However, you can plug the ECS into mains power (see below for information) using the transformer (included). The fan will run on solar power when it has sunlight. Otherwise, it will run on mains power and only run for eight minutes every half hour.
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS FOR MAINS POWER OPERATION (OPTIONAL)
To set up nighttime moisture control, you will need the services of a qualified electrician to install a 12V transformer (to be sourced in NZ). You can plug the ECS into mains power (separate transformer required), which will then allow the ECS unit to control the GREEN VENT SOLAR when there is not enough sunlight on the solar panel, such as at night.
The GREEN VENT SOLAR has a Manufacturer’s Warranty of 7 years against defects occurring in the manufacturing process. (Excludes motor, which includes a 12-month warranty) For all warranty information and enquiries, please call 0800 257 964 or visit www.alsynite.co.nz
