Although everyone knows that it helps cut down the cost of your household power usage, most people don’t realize that, in some cases, it can make your house entirely energy neutral.Even though it’s the middle of winter, it’s not a bad idea to start planning to install a new wind turbine in the spring. Although everyone knows that it helps cut down the cost of your household power usage, most people don’t realize that, in some cases, it can make your house entirely energy neutral. So what do you need to know about setting one of these up on your property? Well, first you need to find a very windy area on your property (obviously). Secondly, the turbine should be very high – it’s better to attach it on the end of a pole rather than directly on your roof. And lastly, keep in mind that you do need a permit to ensure the noise level is kept low, it is out of neighbours’ sights, but hiring a skilled installer can help with this process.

  1. Hey There Greenerideal,
    Along the same lines, I have cleaned it before and it was successful, nevertheless this time I removed the grid, cleaned it, and when I reinserted it the lights came on along with a blinking red light came on plus lit up the “cleaning overdue” switch, that is normally yellow. I cut it off plus today it won’t like up or pretend to function at all… I hope someone has a trick considering I reside inside an apartment without circulated air plus I require it!
    Catch you again soon!
