Lomanco 14" Roof Turbines - Black
on July 9, 2012
7/9/12 - 1pm
First I have to say that the shipping and delivery took exactly 12 days, Amazon estimated delivery was saying 3 weeks???
When the 2 boxes came ( I bought 2, my place is 1428sqf ), they were all banged up very very bad and
I was scared that they were damaged.
When my roofer opened the boxes this morning at 7am the head of the turbines were perfect but the bottoms were indeed very curved and banged by the bad UPS job.( UPS has been very bad for me the last 3 big purchases that I made, they either dropped the boxes too many times and broke the content or didn't know my address and delivered it to a different address. after multiple calls I ended up knowing the real address UPS delivered it to and it was a block away from my house?????????).
To come back to the turbines, my roofer said that, as they were in aluminum they were easy "foldable" and can be fix easy.
I think Lomanco should be more careful on their packaging and change the way they ship their stuff, it may be broken easy.
So it took 3 hours to install 2 14" Turbines Black.
(And from the roof of the building the 14" were the biggest one of all, when everybody else used 12"...)
One turbine head did not turn very easy when I was pushing it with my hand and the other one was very loose and was turning forever... which is good. more they turn more they do the job.
I was concerned and added some special lifetime grease from Germany named "Wurth" that I had and it got better.
Once installed, they are at +1 foot from the roof so they can catch the wind very easy and both were turning like crazy...
At this time I was very happy and could not wait to take the temperature under my roof to see what my investment brought me!
Yesterday in San Diego at 3pm, peak heat, it was under my roof = 105.2F (82F out) and now it went down to 85F !!!!!!
Now I am very very happy, my roof does not feel congested and heavy air as before...( I did not have any ventilation before, and my roof is flat).
I looked online for roof turbines reviews thinking somebody is going to say how many degrees I can save after install and nobody says anything about it? why? it is the main point of having a turbine.... To have a cooler place...
So please Amazon customers... tell us how many degrees you have saved, so other people can purchase those great turbines.
