Solarking Roof Ventilation Fan NEW MODEL with DC INPUT
Purchased Feb 23 and only installed it Oct 23 as it started to get unbearable hot as the shed is not insulated (shed is 72m2). I honestly cannot believe how much cooler the shed is now, the difference is day and night.
I am now considering to hold off on installing insulation until after summer as it may not be needed at all
Great item. Works well. I can install if required.
Fantastic Product. Fast Delivery.
This isn't a story about everything going well. It didn't. I installed the vent in July. Great pulling huge amounts of hot air out of the roof space. By listening carefully in the toilet, you knew when it was going. And then , in November it wasn't. Enquired about warranty, Lesley came back with an OK. I removed the fan motor and tested it on the bench, it didn't work, then it did then it didn't again. Rotten intermittent fault. In the middle of the Covid Pandemic, I didn't expect things to move quickly, but with some prodding from Lesley, Solar King delivered a replacement motor on 23 December, just 24 hours after I was advised it might take some time. I replaced the motor after bench testing it AND (fanfare) NOTHING HAPPENED. Tested the Solar panel output. 5 volts, not 18volts. Dud panel too. Called Lesley again. She organised a replacement panel from Solar King. They came good after some prodding (from Lesley again). Finally, on February 4, it was all go. Not an ideal installation, but Lesley at Satplus was persistent in following up the problem with Solar King and making sure they (slowly, but without resistance) provided the necessary parts for a successful recovery. You can best judge an organisation by how it handles adversity and Satplus got 10 out of 10 on that count. I highly recommend Satplus, although I'm not so sure about Solar King. Time will tell if I was just unlucky, or there is a quality problem.
