      Well folks,

       

      Consider this a submission of a third party’s results.

       

      In brief, it would seem that while pv vent fans can lower attic air temperatures, there are better ways to achieve the effects of this reduction, some of which would also have positive winter-time ramifications.

      Another report which touches on this matter (although dealing specifically with AC powered vent fans, does address attic cooling in general):
