• Solar Star Solar Powered Attic Fans

No two houses are identical. Yours may have a different layout, a different square footage, or a different roof type than your neighbor’s. 

This is the reason we don’t have a standard pricing menu. Characteristics that are unique to your home—such as attic height, roof pitch and roof material—all have a bearing on the components needed for your Solar Star Attic Fan.

To give you a ballpark figure of what you might expect to pay, below we’ve provided an example of a common system configuration using national pricing averages. Prices in your local area may vary.



Project: Reduce utility costs by adding a ventilation system in a large attic.

Installation Considerations

Installation costs are usually listed separately, although some dealers combine the product and installation fees into one sum. In addition, the expense and time to perform an installation can vary based on a number of factors, including:

  • Roof type
  • Attic square footage and configuration
  • Installer experience and product knowledge
  • Installer licensing (versus non-licensed handyman)
  • Regional economy

While Solar Star attic ventilation systems are engineered for easy installation, you’ll get the best results when you hire a professional who has been factory-trained and certified to install our products. When arranging installation, we recommend you hire a Solatube Premier Dealer who is licensed, bonded and factory-trained on Solatube products to ensure a proper install and protection from unforeseen circumstances.
