Asked by: BobA
In a hard rain a few drops make it through, but nothing significant. I have one in my garage with no ceiling and I may see a few drops on my car.

12 in. Mill Finish Aluminum Internally Braced Wind Turbine is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would give 5 stars but it's only been 3 weeks I started having a lot of moisture build up inside my attic to a point that my ceiling was sweating. On a bi level roof I installed a 14 in on top and 12 in on bottom roof. As soon as I cut a whole in the roof I could feel the heat blasting from my Attic. After 3 weeks these things work excellent. No more sweating and definitely no leaks

The instructions for ensuring there is proper airflow that were included with the product were followed and the other existing passive vents were blocked. My attic temperature doesn't get as high and my electric bill dropped $20 last month, even though my power bill said the average temperature was 2 degrees hotter than last year and there was an extra day in the cycle. That is what I was hoping for! The turbine turns freely and there is no noise at all, even when I was right next to it.

Aluminum base was easy to set flat on the new plywood; the only issue was the instruction's #7 fuzzy photo image of the Set screw - it took a couple of tries...this unit replaced a 20 year old one, am looking forward to many years of service from this new Turbine!

Compare with a Turbine Aire WTI12X 12-in turbine vent that we picked up from Lowes in town. Summer time, Albuquerque. Maybe it was just the heat, but that model from Lowes stopped spinning freely in about a day (nothing against Lowes, they're fine too, it's just the truth). We tried another of the same model that stopped spinning freely also in about a day. We purchased this 12-in Whirlybird online from Home Depot and it installed right on the same flange base (not recommended but a quick test), and has been spinning freely ever since - a very clear improvement. It would be more ideal if could install the flange base that came with this Whirlybird as it is sturdier and would fit better. Anyway, this Whirlybird was a little more expensive but worth it. The aluminum thickness of this product is also greater and overall construction sturdier. Photo shows the old flange base with the new turbine on top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 12 in whirlyburd Turbine The product was ok n what I needed. This was a replacement for my existing one that was making noise while turning. I just used the head but noticed that the base was slightly dented. It operates fine with no noise. It has a lifetime warranty if it ever fails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great warranty I have had 3 of these since 1979 and the top bearing started going out on all three of them so I called the company and they are going to send me three new ones. They are easy to replace as well. The top part has three screws that hold them onto the base part that is attached to the roof.
