We live in a home built in 1905 and in the summer the attic is hot as hades! In the winter, it is soooo cold. This is a dual question: What are the recommendations for the best solar power attic fan (what should I look for?)? Also have been told NOT to over insulate the attic as houses this age were built to "breathe" and closing them up will cause many a problem. All I know is there is old saw dust that was used as insulation under the attic floor-between the joists and this is the ONLY insulation up there. Please advise on what we can do.

There is not a best solar powered attic fan. Research has shown that attic fans are a waste of money and will never pay for themselves.

Typically these fans are oversized...
