About This Product

Whirlybird turbines offer all of the essentials for energy savings and are geared towards going green while maximizing ventilation capacity. The Whirlybird's large flashing makes installation easy. An exclusive vari-pitch base adjusts to a 12/12 roof pitch for use on many roof applications. When installed with adequate intake ventilation, the Whirlybird turbine reduces energy bills and the likelihood of winter ice buildup.

Q:Can I have to much ventilation?
by|May 2, 2023
2 Answers
Answer This Question

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.

      Answer This Question

      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.

        Q:Will water leak into my attic, through the vent's openings, when it isn't spinning?
        by|Aug 3, 2021
        2 Answers
        Answer This Question

        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.

            Easy to install and works great. It’s made of aluminum so it is lighter and easy to adjust the shape if bending happened during the shipping. My attic is now cooler than before. The negative thing about the product is that it isn’t as rigid as the galvanized version. It can get bend out of shape and alignment easily and will caused it to wobble as it spins. Some pulling of the parts is necessary to reshape and rebalance.

            Great Product, Great Company
            So I picked this part up for our roofers to install. It is very light and spins like a dream, paint was nice. Came with great installation "Must Do's" right on the top flaps of the box, so I couldn't help but see them when I was tearing the box open, thankfully. Roofers were about to install this part in an incorrect location - as in, cutting a hole in my roof in the wrong spot, that would then have to be repaired, likely on my dime. Big thanks for saving us from that whole ordeal, Lomanco. Then, the roofers misplaced the hardware so I called Lomanco. Wow. What a nice surprise. This company is one you can trust. Took great care of us. Thank you Lomanco, for being a bright spot in my week and for running such an excellent company. I don't take that kind of thing for granted anymore. Always glad to do business with a Made-In-The-USA product by a great American company. This review is my thank you to them. P.S. Kids had fun watching it spin for a really long time even after they stopped using the blower. "How is it spinning by itself?!? When is it going to stop?!?"

              We are very pleased with this product, and the fact they're aluminum is great. We hired a handyman to put up the two we just bought, and he commented how light they are. They've made a HUGE difference in the temperature in our garage! We found one fin bent when opening the box, but it hasn't affected its performance. We love the brown color too, as it matches the trim on our buildings.

                These things are awesome. I have ridge vents and they weren't getting the job done. I added three 14" Lomanco Whirlybirds and wow what a difference in the attic. Dad had to do the same thing to his house. His dormer blinds were melting, so he added whirlybirds. It made a huge difference to his attic temperature also. Don't listen to people who say you can't add them when you already have ridge vents. My ridge vents and dad's we're not getting the job done.

                Going on day 3 with these installed, and our upstairs bedroom is already 3-5 degrees cooler in the evening - First time that we haven't had to use the ceiling fan in order to sleep comfortably! I was hesitant to install these, as I had to cut (2) 14" ventilation holes through the roof (and asphalt tiles) - Once you start cutting those, you are committed to completing the project so I had to be sure! Initially, the boss was resistant to having these installed, as she thought they would make the roof look 'ugly' - I temporarily placed them on the roof just so she could get a full visual, and eventually got the OK to proceed. She is very impressed with how much cooler our bedroom is now, so that's a win. I will be watching for leaks when we get our first significant rain, just to make sure I sealed everything properly with the roofing cement (Henry 10.1 oz. 209XR Elastomeric Sealant, Internet #100001308 Model # HE209004 Store SKU #100902). I have easy access to these in my attic, in case I need to add more sealant. The last items that I need to do is close off the ridge vent and double-check the inlet vents to make sure they are clear from blown-in insulation - These should help the turbines to run and cool more effectively. A little pricey, but a fair trade-off for more comfort and better A/C efficiency.

                Too early to tell if they will effect my electric bill. But when I installed them I could feel hot air rise up out of my attic. I watched a video on you tube and install both whirlybirds in one morning by myself. I'm over 60 and a female. if that matters. Probably took more time getting ladder & tool out ,then climbing up and down the ladder, then it actually took to cut holes and install whirlybirds. Just need to find caulk gun and I'm all done. I live in the southwest desert so heat is more of a factor than rain or cold.

                I had some passive 14" round roof vents but this summer was extraordinarily hot and I needed better ventilation. These provided that and being 14" also, they went directly onto the existing roof mounts which made installation a snap. Finally, the brown color is perfect.

                Super easy to install and use
                These whirly birds are so amazing. They are a breeze to install , and the slightest breeze these things spin. They really help pull the hot air out of the attic space. Made a huge difference in the house temperature especially the summer . Its a cheep no brainer!
