A: Hello, Gennifer from Lomanco here. One 14" turbine will cover approximately 1,028 square feet of attic space. I would recommend using our vent calculator on our website to calculate how many vents needed to ventilate your attic properly, here is the link: https://www.lomanco.com/vent-resources/vent-calculator. If you put more turbines on your home than recommended, you want to make sure to compensate with more intake as well, you will need your intake and exhaust to both be 50% to balance the air flow in and out and ventilate properly. If you have any additional questions, feel free to call and speak to Customer Service at 1-800-643-5596.
A: in summer, the more air you move the better. In winter you want enough ventilation to keep the attic dry. I have two turbines, in winter I do cover one of them but thats probably not necessary.
A: Hello, Gennifer from Lomanco here. You are able to purchase our Lomanco turbine top only by contacting a local distributor nearby. If you believe your top is defective, our turbines are covered under warranty against any manufacturer defects (example: turbine making noises due to bearings going out or the top worn through from the bearings going out). If you need to process a warranty you will need the identification marking from the inside of the turbine top. You will also need the color, exact size and style to process a warranty. If you need additional help with warranty information or need help with local distributors, feel free to call and speak to our Customer Service team at 1-800-643-5596.
A: Hello, Gennifer from Lomanco here. When turbines are properly installed with a balanced system of intake and exhaust, they should not allow any weather infiltration. The turbine has twenty-one air-foil curved vanes with rolled edges to deflect water. The rolled edges are designed to force the water to run down the vanes and not into the attic. Air-foil means a body designed to provide a desired reaction force when in motion relative to the surrounding area. To summarize, the turbine should be turning at all times when there is outside air movement. The centrifugal force of the turbine also prevents leakage. Centrifugal force is the force that tends to impel a thing or parts of a thing, such as rain, outward from a center of rotation, such as the bearing/shaft assembly in the turbine. Seal with roofing cement around all seams, nails, and under the flashing. The part of the flashing that is facing the roof peak should be installed underneath the shingles and the bottom part should be overlapping the shingles. Sealing in this manner prevents water from entering the attic under the flashing. Hope this information is helpful. If you have any additional questions, feel free to call and speak to Customer Service at 1-800-643-5596.
A: All worked well, hope it reduces temp in attic? Thanks
