U.S. Sunlight Wins Final Best of Show Competition for the 2011 National Hardware Show

August 5, 2011

Among the 20 finalists for Best of Show, the Solar Attic Fan and Solar Controller̢Ң come out on top.

Incline Village, NV (PRWEB) August 04, 2011

Over 100,000 products among 9 product categories were showcased at the 2011 National Hardware Show. More than 2,300 vendors, and thousands of attendees came out looking for new products in the home improvement industry. Over 20 products were awarded the “Best of Show” products, from outdoor living, tailgating products, to plumbing, storage, housewares, and energy efficient products. In the end, both the Solar Attic Fan and Solar Controllerâ“¢ from U.S. Sunlight won the Best of Show competition, for their innovative design, ease of use, and their benefits for today’s homeowners.

U.S. Sunlight’s Solar Attic Fans have gained public recognition and praise for its tremendous benefits to the overall efficiency and comfort of homes. Active attic ventilation is essential for home maintenance to provide these following benefits:

  •     Remove the trapped heat and moisture in the attic
  •     Enhance the comfort of the living space
  •     Extend the life of roofing materials

Along with these benefits, a well-ventilated attic extends the life of the roof and drastically reduces run time of the air-conditioner unit. Attic temperatures easily reach up to 165ËšF and will penetrate the living spaces below, forcing the air conditioner to fight the attic heat as well. A well ventilated attic allows the air conditioner to be more effective without having to run as long, especially on hot summer days, further reducing the home’s overall energy consumption and energy bill. The Solar Attic Fan is truly a “green” product that also saves you “green”.

Here is what people say about the Solar Attic Fan:

“This product cooled down my interior a good 10 degrees. I believe the money I spent will be paid back within the first year of use.”

“What a wonderful difference the solar fan has made in our house. We installed 4 fans and AC run time is greatly reduced.”

“This attic fan was extremely easy to install. If you are handy around the home, you likely can install this product. Its operation is very quiet.”

Solar Attic Fan and Solar Controllerâ“¢ ““ Attic DUO

Along with Solar Attic Fan, the SolarControllerâ“¢ is named the “Best of Show” product for its innovation in allowing a solar fan runs after dark. With the optional house power connection, the SolarControllerâ“¢ can connect the Solar Attic Fan to a house electricity source and enable the fan to run with minimal electricity usage after dark or when solar power is not available, at an annual electrical cost of under $5. This allows the solar attic fan to continue ventilating the hot attic space after sunset. It is pre-programmed to monitor temperature and relative humidity conditions and adjusts the fan’s operation as needed. This hybrid functionality, along with current temperature, relative humidity, and fan operating status are also available on the Solar Controllerâ“¢’s remote control unit, which can be mounted and operated within the living space of the home.

U.S. Sunlight Corp designs and manufactures products that make it possible for all homeowners to participate in the exploding trend in alternative energies. We are focused on “Alternative Energy for Everyday Life.” Visit us at http://www.ussunlight.com or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
