Questions & Answers

What about when it rains hard. Does water leak in?

can this type vent be installed on a slanted roof?

Asked by: Tom
Yes, it is designed to adjust to the pitch of the roof allowing the spinning parts to operate on a level plane. Just make sure that the pitch/slant of your roof dosn't exceed the operating range of the unit. I know it will operate on roofs that have a pitch anywhere between zero and 12 on 12.

Sealed Bearings ?

Should be on your description. Screws included? Thanks
Asked by: Pic
Hi! It's customer support from Lomanco here. The Whirlybird's bearings permanently seal in lubricant to keep dirt and moisture out. These upper and lower ball bearings are the heart of the turbine and ensure long life and no maintenance.

I installed this on hip roof garage that had soffit vents but no ridge vent. The product was realively easy to install, an 8 on 12 pitch didn't help, using the instructions that came with the unit. Once you had the top leveled, attaching the pitch locking device and top was easy. The unit spins freely and silently. I knew this unit was going to cool down the garage just from the rush of hot air that came shooting up when I cut the hole in the roof. Note: I'm a little OCD when it comes to wildlife invading my domain, so I stretched a piece of screen over the opening before attaching the top.

The original vents that were installed 20+ years ago worked better. I only replaced them because I decided to replace my roof and wanted everything black. Not sure which brand the originals were but they were silver and spun freely no matter if there were any breeze or not. These lack ones by Whirlybird do not spin freely at all. Looks like it's struggling to spin. I had 2 installed. The one that does spin WOBBLES like crazy. The one that isn't spinning only spins when the wind is blowing 20+ mph or so. And that one also wobbles! These were installed by the roofer so I'm pretty sure they knew what they were doing. I contacted Whirlybird to see if I can get 1 replaced due to it not spinning. See the photo I have attached. They are installed perfectly level. Yet it's not spinning. I am hoping to get a repalcement before Winter as I don't want any water seeping through the defective unit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Whirlybird on metal roof Product arrived when promised, package was not damaged and instructions where easy to follow. only issue was the whirlybird whobbled a little once it started spinning. I could immediately feel the heat being pulled out of the attic. It was put to the test two days later with heavy rains with no apparent leaks or damage.

These were fairly easy to install and can barely be seen from the street yet help keep the house significantly cooler. So far they operate silently and there were no leaks during a recent rainfall. Installation videos on YouTube were very helpful.
