Installing these wind turbines on a roof with cement tile shingles ?

Our home in Huntington Beach, CA has cement roof tiles. I am concerned about doing the installation of two turbines working with this type of roof tile. Does HomeDepot have installation service available for these turbines ? Also, how would I know how many turbines to install ? Is there a formula used to calculate the number of turbines based on the attic's area ? Thank you.
Asked by: Battlechief
Doubt HD would have install services. I built & installed my own. Sizing can be determined from (manufacturere) web pages. All the details for sizing are on their site. I believe a 12" vent will service 1,500-1,600 SF with 100 sq in of inflow vent. I actually talked to someone in their engineering department about these vents. Oh, my riser box is 22" x 22" sq and 18" high. Width determined by base of vent (20"). My entire cost <$200 complete. Hope this helps you! Dave

Replacement for Roof Mount Ventilator

Hello, my garage currently has a roof mount ventilator, and I plan to replace with the turbine. The ventilator is 15-inch diameter. Will the turbine (12-in dia.) fit the ventilator location? Thanks.
Asked by: hcemc
Hi hcemc, A 12 inch ventilator will have a smaller base and will not cover the opening for the 15 inch unit. Mike,

12 in. Galvanized Steel Internally Braced Wind Turbine is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install, serves its purpose. It seems to be decent quality construction and was really easy to install, just follow the included directions (don't forget to buy flashing sealant as is required).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wind turbine works! Was easy to install, works well - cooler in the carriage house now with the ventilation it provides.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Picked one of these up at the Surprise, Az store. Had to drill new holes to mount it to the old ... Picked one of these up at the Surprise, Az store. Had to drill new holes to mount it to the old base. It seemed to turn OK but after watching it on the roof along with the other two wind turbines it seems very reluctant to turn while the existing turbines were busy spinning away. Going to take it back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product Bought 4 of this wind turbine, and installed on my newly expanded roof. Works well, and the design is flexible for optimum adjustment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DIY wind Turbine Installation on Flat Roof I bought this Lomanco whirlybird wind turbine after talking to Lomanco's engineering department. The engineer assured me it would work very good for our 16' x 22' flat roof garage in Green Valley, AZ. In fact, he said there was no need for us to spend $400 on their solar unit. Today 5-21-15 I built an 18" riser and installed the entire unit on our garage. The top extends about 6" above the Parepet wall, so it does get good air. Tomorrow I will apply roof coating. Entire cost $150.
