Solar Roof Ventilator Installation

Solar Roof Ventilator

Solar roof vents are an innovative solution designed to enhance the ventilation of your home. These eco-friendly systems offer a range of advantages that cater to the comfort and energy efficiency needs of Australian households.

If your roof has sarking these won’t work as well, as the roof space is sealed, but there are still plenty of gaps in a roof where air can flow through. You can always call us at AllCoast Roofing for advice.

Main advantage of Solar Vents

The advantage of solar vents over standard is that on a hot windless day these are still spinning removing heat where a standard vent almost completely stops.

Can Solar Roof Vents Work At Night?

Solar roof vents are only functional during daylight hours when the sun is shining.

How much does a solar ventilator cost?

The price of a solar roof ventilator is $990 inc. GST. When compared to the recommended 2-4 quality whirly birds ($495 each for our wind-driven WindMaster Whirlybirds) for a standard home, a single solar roof ventilator is more cost effective.

Solar Vent Applications

  • Removal of heat and moisture in roof spaces
  • Suitable for metal and tiled roofs and most roof colours
  • Residential homes and commercial/public buildings
  • SolarKing is ideal for areas with direct contact with sea spray

Features & Benefits of Solar Roof Vents


  • Energy Efficiency: Solar roof vents operate using solar energy, significantly reducing electricity usage and contributing to a greener home.
  • Automatic Temperature Regulation: Many models come with built-in thermostats that automatically adjust the roof ventilation rate based on the roof void's temperature.
  • Low Maintenance: Designed to withstand Australia's harsh weather conditions, solar roof vents require minimal maintenance.
  • Easy Installation: Solar roof vents can be installed on various roofing materials without the need for complex wiring or electrical work for new and existing homes.


  • Reduces Cooling Costs: By efficiently removing hot air from the roof void, solar roof vents help lower the temperature inside the home. Save energy by relying less on your airconditioner.
  • Improves Indoor Air Quality: These vents help to expel pollutants, moisture, and stale air from the home, improving indoor air quality.
  • Increases Roof Longevity: By preventing extreme heat buildup in the roof, solar roof vents reduce the risk of damage to roof materials and structures.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Utilising renewable solar energy, solar roof vents reduce the carbon footprint of the home.

Reviews of Solar Vents installed by AllCoast

Had a whirlybird removed and a new one installed by Allcoast Roofing Service - very happy with their service and workmanship. They replied to me quickly with a quote, suggested whirlybird colours to match my roof, and provided a timeframe for installation (which was met!). Installation was a breeze and the new whirlybird looks great. Thanks Wayne, appreciate your great service

Wayne and his expert roofing team are the ideal trades team. From the initial call for a quote to the follow up after the job was complete Wayne and AllCoast roofing were a delight to deal with. The quote was not the cheapest or the most expensive but the finished product I have no doubt is the best possible. Our roof was checked over, an accurate assessment made, and value-for money quote provided. Then the very thorough cleaning, repointing and renovation work, and finally painting were all carried out by their respective tradesmen in a thorough and professional way. After dealing with a few other trades for other services I can honestly say AllCoast roofing is the best in the business! Thank you Wayne and team, I love my updated roof!
