FLAT BASE UNIT INSTALLATION
NOTE: For best operation, install solar fan where it will receive direct sunlight. South or West facing roof slopes will work best.
- Cut a 14 1/2" diameter hole between rafters approximately 24”-30" down from roof peak to center of hole.
- Trim away top rows of shingles an additional 2" to allow base flashing to slip under top rows of shingles and over bottom rows.
- Slip the flat base under the top rows of shingles and center unit over opening with the SRS Logo on the bottom.
- Gently lift the unit and apply sealant under lower edge and sides of base flashing.
- Pre-drill (4) mounting holes along the bottom edge of the base flashing, and (1) hole on each side approximately 2" up from the bottom edge.
- Use exterior-grade screws to secure unit to roof deck. Apply sealant to screw heads.

Fixed Thermostat Information
This fan has been factory equipped with a thermal on/off switch. This switch is designed to turn the fan:
ON: 80° F
OFF: 65° F
Example: Attic temperature rises to 80° and fan turns on. Once it cools to 65° the fan will shut off. If evening comes and temp does not fall below 65° to reset the switch, then the unit will start the next morning at sunrise and continue to cool the attic. However, if the attic temp falls below 65° at night, then the switch will shut off and will not turn the unit on again until attic temp reaches 80°.
INSTALLER: THIS FAN WILL NOT RUN UNLESS THE AMBIENT (AIR) TEMPERATURE IS AT OR NEAR 80°. YOU MAY TEST OPERATION OF THE THERMOSTAT BY BLOWING WARM AIR DIRECTLY ON THE THERMOSTAT TO HEAT IT TO 80°, MAKING SURE SOLAR PANEL IS EXPOSED TO SUNLIGHT AT THE SAME TIME.
