A: Hello, Gennifer from Lomanco here. We do recommend using intake for all of our exhaust vents for them to work properly. Our turbines are designed to be used as exhaust only. Proper ventilation consists of 50% intake ventilation (near the lower part of the attic space) and 50% exhaust ventilation (near or at the roof peak) at least 3 feet higher than the intake system. Intake vents allow fresh air in and exhaust vents let heat and moisture out of the attic. If you have any additional questions, feel free to call and speak to Customer Service at 1-800-643-5596.
A: I live in the southwest where is hot . I installed 2 wind turbines on the roof and have vents on the side of the house to help with ventilation cause the roof gets pretty hot , and seems to work well . Check the houses in your neighborhood to see how they vent their roofs and ask a vell reputed roof contractor. Proper roof ventilation is very important. Hope this helps .
A: Hello, Gennifer from Lomanco here. We do not recommend the turbine as a bathroom fan, it is designed to be installed over the attic space to exhaust heat and air from the attic space. Here is a link to the bathroom vent we offer: https://www.lomanco.com/vents/roof-jacks. If you have any additional questions, feel free to call and speak to Customer Service at 1-800-643-5596.
A: Hello, Gennifer from Lomanco here. The BEB12 turbine can be installed on a standing seam metal roof or a rolled profiled metal roof. Please refer to our website: http://media.lomancovents.com/all_access/sales_literature/lo465_turbine_metal_roof.pdf to locate metal roof installation instructions. If you have any additional questions, feel free to call and speak to Customer Service at 1-800-643-5596.
A: I wish you could! Mine (2) only last about 7-8 years here in AZ. Lifetime warranty is useless because manufacturer requires you to send the old one back to them, which costs as much, or over what a new unit costs making the warranty useless!!!
