    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello, Gennifer from Lomanco here. A well vented attic with turbines will drop attic temperature 15-20 degrees. We have specific metal roof installation instructions on our website at www.lomanco.com. These instructions are for standing seam metal roofs or rolled profile metal roofs. The 14" Big Whirly moves up to 37% more air than the 12". The air being exhausted through the turbine MUST be replaced by outside air drawn in through intake vents located near the lower part of the attic space to properly ventilate the total attic area and eliminate weather infiltration. Lack of intake vents results in extreme heat buildup in the summer and severe moisture problems in the winter. You must have a continuous supply of fresh air to “feed” the exhaust vents.The intake system must provide as much or more than the exhaust system in net free area. Each 14” turbine requires 345 square inches of intake ventilation. If you have any additional questions, feel free to call and speak to customer service at 1-800-643-5596.

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello, Gennifer from Lomanco here. Yes, our turbines turn on American-made polymer ball bearings for silent operation and no maintenance. Each turbine is factory tested to turn in a breeze of less than two miles per hour. If you have any additional questions, feel free to call and speak to customer service at 1-800-643-5596.

          Q:Whirlybird not turn it properly
          by|Sep 1, 2018
          1 Answer
          Answer This Question

          A:  Hello, Gennifer from Lomanco here. There are a few things to consider regarding the just-installed Whirlybird turbine and why it may not be spinning. First, for hot air to exhaust through the turbine there must be adequate intake air provided to the attic area via intake vents located lower in the attic space. If there is not enough intake air, this may be restricting the amount of air exiting through the turbine. Second, the bearings are lubricated with grease and it may take a few weeks for the bearing to "break in". It is likely that within a few weeks, the turbine will turn freely. For optimal operation, the turbine should be installed level to the ground. The turbine head may have shifted slightly during transportation and minor adjustments may need to be made. The top can be adjusted by using a flat head screwdriver to pry the lowest point of the turbine upward. If the base is not level, it may be necessary to make some adjustments. The pitch setting may need to be changed. The base (elbow) may be made level by adjusting the pitch to a different setting. The bottom of the elbow will turn clockwise (the elbow will move along the "seam") to align roof pitch number with the indicator line on the flashing. If you have any additional questions, feel free to call and speak to customer service at 1-800-643-5596.

            I had two turbines on the roof probably from 1974 when the house was built. Suddenly, I started hearing this loud, obnoxious banging on the roof at various times most especially in the middle of the night. A neighborhood contact took a look a look and let me know both turbines needed replacement. Went over to Lowe's first who did not have any 14" in stock then tried Home Depot whom also did not have the 14". However, this came up via search and reviews lead me to making the purchase for two of these. The boxes are good sized which made having it shipped a better idea. The gentleman that installed these said they seemed awesome, well-made and may last forever. Turns out, they are WARRANTED forever!! In the warranty, "Lomanco, Inc., guarantees our turbine vents against defects due to workmanship, parts, or mechanical failure forever." How amazing is that? They have been on the roof now for about 3 weeks and so far have performed above and beyond. While slightly pricey (I wish I had known about the internal vs. external bracing difference and price), the color is good, looks good on the roof and have been very successful. Very satisfied with these!!

              Watch placement but phenomenal product and company
              Don't place where wind flow impaired. I had 2 - one alone and another about 6 feet from a swamp cooler. After many years up and in a large storm, I went into attic and confirmed water passing thru where wind flow blocked. Other was Perfect. Love them.
