Hi Danae, I live in South Carolina and have had two Turbine Boss installed for over 6 years and it gets as hot as 115 F and as cold as 14 F. I have not had an issue with these. Mine are installed on an asphalt shingle roof. Advantage to being plastic, it's easier to manufacture in China. Although I like these and they saved us about $30 - $40 per month, I don't see them in stock anywhere.

A related Question to the Reply given, please: Does anyone know whether-or-not the actual 'physical-operation' (of 'opening and/or closing') of the Turbine Boss' "automatic-damper" ('louvers') is 'affected and/or restricted' (in ANY WAY WHATSOEVER!)... by the placement (positioning) of the "No Moving Parts Retrofit Wind Turbine" 'on-top' of the "Turbine Boss"???

Asked by VA August 2, 2018

Answer

Attempting to adjust the thermostat is discouraged. When installing you can choose your Winter Air-Flow Selector setting number. Across the country, installers are encouraged to select setting #3 for their 12-inch turbine ventilator since this allows a 20% ventilation during winter. If you wish to select setting #1, the louvers completely close during winter. However, if your roof develops a leak due to its age or other reasons, you may regret not having this ventilation during winter to exhaust your attic's moisture.

When will it be available?

Easy Installation, & Works In The 'Frig... LOL
I got 2 Turbine Boss', put them in the frig, they closed & I let them warm up, they opened as advertized. I have 16" turbines so I plugged the gap with insulation. I've checked them in the morning & they're closed, checked them later & they opened all the way. So that saves me from bagging & un-bagging the turbines, good to go.

Oh, these jacked up pieces of crap will make a preacher curse! They say they are made for 12" or 14" turbines. They lie. They supply you with these pathetic little stick in braces that are supposed to bridge the gap on 14" turbines. Guess what? They don't. They won't even stay in place. I tried to silicone mine in so they wouldn't move, and let em dry real good. As soon as I tried to fit them in the turbine base, I realized that they might just BARELY catch the edges if I was lucky. In the process of trying to use some liquid nails to glue em down, I watched two of the braces fall into my attic. Now there is NO WAY IN HECK it's gonna stay in there. That's ok. I have two. I grab the second one and the same thing happens. Three out of the four useless piece of garbage braces fall down into my attic. This is where I scared the neighbor's dog. I bounced both of those $20 pieces of %*&@ off the roof while screaming at the top of my lungs. Of course they came apart when they hit the ground, so I helped them a little with my right foot and made a bunch of little pieces. I already had to buy the wrong color turbine heads for my house, and now these pieces of crap don't wanna work right. These might work for a 12" head, but they won't for a 14" Great idea, but pure junk.

It’s working as described so far. Has only been installed a few weeks & it’s cold out so the fins are closed. Had to go to building supply to get the adhesive, so that delayed installation for a few days. Would be nice if they included a small tube of silicone adhesive with it.
