do you make this in 8"

Asked by: tomb
No. We make only the 12-inch size. It fits both the 12 and 14-inch turbine vent.

I was wondering where I can buy it I'm in Canada (Calgary) and I can't find any available around here

Asked by: Vincent
If you live in Calgary you should not even consider one of these! Cold climates like Calgary , it is very important to have adequate ventilation to prevent condensation and frost from forming in the attic. As well , to prevent ice damming around the perimeter of the roof. The attic needs to breath, especially in the cold winter months. This product will not save money on heating.

12 in. Automatic Damper for Turbine Vent is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 33.

During the cold winter months is when it is most important to have adequate ventilation to prevent condensation and frost from accumulating in the attic space. Don't buy into the claim that it will help keep your home warmer, as the attic space is intended to be an unconditioned/outdoor part of the home. If you have heat getting into the attic from inside the home, there is big problem with the home itself. In colder climates you do not want to try to keep warm air inside the attic, unless the home was designed to have the attic as conditioned living space. This product will cause more harm than than good over the long term, ask any roofer or contractor or home builder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Installation, & Works In The 'Frig... LOL I got 2 Turbine Boss', put them in the frig, they closed & I let them warm up, they opened as advertized. I have 16" turbines so I plugged the gap with insulation. I've checked them in the morning & they're closed, checked them later & they opened all the way. So that saves me from bagging & un-bagging the turbines, good to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing idea! This is an amazing idea! Put the little coil in it's pocket CORRECTLY and it opens in heat and closes in cold. Just put it inside the turbine frame, put the turbine on the frame and you're done. No more covering your turbines in the winter and taking them off in summer. Manufacturer VERY responsive. Within minutes of emailing a question I received a phone call with the answer. AMAZING customer support! Unlike many companies today. Don't hesitate to try this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It DOES ventilate in winter. Respnding to: PJinSoCal.... Please see the 'Energy Guide". Notice that Turbine Boss DOES vent attic moisture during winter. You choose the 'Winter Ventilation Rate' when installing. It's easy. Also don't try to stop the turbine from spinning...rain will come into the attic. This is a great way to save energy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth a try I had a roofer help me install two of these Turbine Boss vents along with two new 12' Whirlybird Turbines. Initially the roofer was sceptical that they would perform as indicated on the box, but after we assembled and inserted them into the turbines, he asked me where I got them. When I told him homedepot.com he said he was going to start recommending them to his other customers. Based on his endorsemnet, I feel good about trying them out on my own roof. I'll need to wait until it gets cooler to confirm the vents fully close but the box says you can test them in your freezer if you doubt their claims. Pros: Fair price Easy assembly Cons: Only available online at homedepot.com. Constructed of plastic. I thought they'd be sheetmetal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Damper These things really work! Put it in a separate garage, open in warm, closed when cold. Keeps garage about 5-8 degrees warmer in cold weather, silent operation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Turbine Boss Appears to Work as Described. Anyone who can get on a roof can install this product. Instructions were simple and was simple to install. Tried it out in the refrigerator prior to installation to make sure it really worked and it did! The product is only plastic so hopefully it lasts a long time through the Texas summers up on the roof. So far this winter, my house has stayed at least 3-5 degrees warmer than previous winters. Not sure it is from the Turbine Boss or my new windows. I believe a little of both. So I believe having this installed is better than having the turbines wide open or not having a ventilated attic by bagging the turbines. So for the price, I believe it is worth purchasing. Plus it appears the product is made in Dallas and I believe in supporting local companies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised. My attic during the recent Dallas Ice Storm was tolerably warm not freezing like it used to be in 18 degree weather. I looked at them they were both closed. The assembly was a little silly. There were things that could have been done before packaging. Fairly easy to install for the most basic of DIY'ers. It is a one time install for those who climb on their roof to put trash bags on their vents.
