Questions & Answers

What about when it rains hard. Does water leak in?

can this type vent be installed on a slanted roof?

Asked by: Tom
Yes, it is designed to adjust to the pitch of the roof allowing the spinning parts to operate on a level plane. Just make sure that the pitch/slant of your roof dosn't exceed the operating range of the unit. I know it will operate on roofs that have a pitch anywhere between zero and 12 on 12.

, can they be locked to prevent spinning in Winter

We live in Arizona.. Our humidity is extremely low in the winter. How does it lock so it doesn't remove winters warming effect in the attic during cold winters?

Sealed Bearings ?

Should be on your description. Screws included? Thanks
Asked by: Pic
Hi! It's customer support from Lomanco here. The Whirlybird's bearings permanently seal in lubricant to keep dirt and moisture out. These upper and lower ball bearings are the heart of the turbine and ensure long life and no maintenance.

This type of roof vent is very efficient but is has it's issues, the main flaw is that is made of really thin aluminum if you're lucky when you buy it you'll get it in good condition most of them are bent and damaged during transportation, I bought 3 of them and had to go back to exchange it 3 times installation is easy and like I said very efficient .....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cooling effect I already have three on my house. They really cool my house. The difference is very significant. I decided to put two in my garage because it gets really hot and it does not have any venting. So it gets too humid inside. I expect it will keep the garage cooler and dryer. For what it does, it is a great money saver.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Install However Installed really easy however I did not get any of hardware for mounting..... no screws or the locking clamp. That is why I only rated it 4 Stars. Just make sure when you buy it that it comes with the screws and locking clamp. Good thing I had some sheet metal screws, far as the clamp I used some thing I had laying around and made my own. Jury still out if it helps keep the house cool.

The original vents that were installed 20+ years ago worked better. I only replaced them because I decided to replace my roof and wanted everything black. Not sure which brand the originals were but they were silver and spun freely no matter if there were any breeze or not. These lack ones by Whirlybird do not spin freely at all. Looks like it's struggling to spin. I had 2 installed. The one that does spin WOBBLES like crazy. The one that isn't spinning only spins when the wind is blowing 20+ mph or so. And that one also wobbles! These were installed by the roofer so I'm pretty sure they knew what they were doing. I contacted Whirlybird to see if I can get 1 replaced due to it not spinning. See the photo I have attached. They are installed perfectly level. Yet it's not spinning. I am hoping to get a repalcement before Winter as I don't want any water seeping through the defective unit.
