When you think of solar fans, it doesn’t refer to a single piece of an entity, but rather two. One is the usual fan consisting of wings and motor, and the other is the solar panel. The second component is used to capture solar energy from the sun and is placed outdoors, usually in the roof. Fan, on the other hand, is set indoors, in your room and functions just like any other electrical equipment. You can turn it on and off at any given moment. The fan and solar panel have to work together to function correctly. So when you’re buying a solar fan, you’re essentially buying two separate pieces of components.

Generally, Battery Not Included

Batteries are what keep your fans running when you’re out of power. While you’d expect solar fans to have batteries in them, which are not incorporated. And to use them, you need to buy them separately. But when purchasing a cell for the fan, please read the product manual or documentation for proper guidance. Some fans will operate on a 12V battery, while others on 16V or whatever. It would help if you used the exact voltage to avoid causing damage to your solar fan.

Save You Energy!

One of the significant perks of investing in a solar fan is its energy-saving bonus. You’ll save hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars every year. Even though that’s not significant, that’s at least something worth considering. Once you install one of these, the power it derives is from the sun, which falls on your rooftop free of cost. So you don’t have to pay anyone to provide the ability to run your fan. All of that saved money goes into your pocket. After all, every penny saved is every penny earned.

But Don’t Expect them to Work Round The Clock.

These fans are great value for money. But they have their intrinsic limitations. One of them is they won’t work all the time of the day. Since these types of fans depend on the sun to derive their energy, they cannot work during the night hours when there’s no sun. The performance will also likely be low during cloudy days and foggy days. So when you’re considering investing in a solar fan, please take into account all of their limitations and prepare yourself accordingly.
