Wind Turbines

 

A non-electric alternative to ventilation, these vents use the natural force of wind and air pressure to spin and vent out stale attic air. They do it with a series of specially shaped vanes that catch the wind and provide rotary motion. This pulls hot, humid air from the attic. Turbine vents provide a low-cost ventilation alternative in areas where wind speeds of at least 5 mph are typical.

 

Miami-Dade Approved

 

Description

Wind TurbineA non-electric alternative to ventilation, these vents use the natural force of wind and air pressure to spin and vent out stale attic air. They do it with a series of specially shaped vanes that catch the wind and provide rotary motion. This pulls hot, humid air from the attic. Turbine vents provide a low-cost ventilation alternative in areas where wind speeds of at least 5 mph are typical.

  • Air Vent's wind turbines are available in both internally and externally braced styles
  • Patented Delrin® bearings assure long-lasting, quiet operation with no metal parts to squeak
  • Two-piece base fits roof pitches from 3/12 up to 12/12
  • Large flashing allows for easy installation
  • Galvanized steel or aluminum construction in 12- and 14-inch sizes
  • Colors: Mill, Black, Brown and Weatherwood

Wind Turbine
Benefits:

  • Provide year-round ventilation
  • Low cost and high efficiency make them an extremely popular ventilation component


Design Considerations:

  • Like roof vents, turbines must always be used with adequate soffit venting to meet minimum ventilation code requirements
  • Homeowners should not be instructed to cover turbines in winter weather because that would prevent ventilation
  • You'll need to replace your turbine vent when it stops spinning, because properly functioning turbine vents spin with the slightest wind

Air Vent reserves the right to discontinue or modify any of its products including color, and shall not be liable as a result of such discontinuation or modification, nor shall Air Vent be liable in the event replacement material may vary in color in comparison to the original product as a result of normal weathering. If Air Vent replaces any product under this warranty, it may substitute products designated by Air Vent to be of comparable quality or price range in the event the product initially installed has been discontinued or modified.

 

Replacement Plus™ Protection
Products are covered by Replacement Plus™ protection (see attached for applicable products) for a period of time (varies by product) provided that the product has been installed in strict accordance with Air Vent’s written installation instructions.
