I've used turbines,the bird's could'nt care less about them.I got rid of them as they only work if the wind is blowing.I'm sure they helped somewhat, but I wanted a constant flow of fresh air through the loft. I ended up installing those 24"x 24'' fan's you can get at walmart. They worked great. Just an idea.i was wondering if any of you use turbines on the roofs of your lofts and if it spooks your birds?
This would mean, by design, turbines would NOT work in a pigeon loft. because the temp inside the loft is the same temp outside the loft. Fan or open loft is the way to go. Just watch out for drafts!!!the wind has nothing to do with how a turbine works. Hot air rises and makes the turbine work. It's a design thing.
It's about getting a cross flow. You'll have to check the fan out in various positions. I made a frame for mine, where I could take it out easily to clean. As far as draft's, I think it's much like that irritating gap in the door. Wether you have the heat or the AC on.Where do you place your fans? Also, when refering to drafts, don't the fans create a draft? I know that like in Georgia where Big T lives, here in Tennessee it gets pretty dang hot in the summer so I want to ventilate the loft well. I'm a newbie so I want to do it right. Thanks
I looked up draft's and you are correct. Draft mean's air flow, or a good pint of Guinness. However, the point is to get air flow relative to the outside temperature.Stagment air is neither good for the bird's or human's.To Clarify it, a "Draft" IS Ventilation, MOVING air.Drafts are the Last thing i worry about, and i Live in Illinois.
