Rooftop Design / August 31, 2018 / Juan M. Tate.
As Ive stated in other sections of this website celebrities like Jay Leno and Ed Begley Jr. have decided to place rooftop wind turbines on their homes and garages. In both cases vertical axis magnetic wind turbines were chosen to fill the bill. Some homeowners state that vertical axis wind turbines in general are a little quieter than their horizontal axis counterparts. Rooftop wind turbines generally come with a kilowatt (kW) rating such as 5 kW 10 kW or 20 kW that reflects how much electricity one can expect it to generate for ones home or business. It is important to either have a large enough rooftop wind generator or several that add up to enough in order to provide the needed power.
One of the first things to consider when looking at roof venues is the environment around it. It is an outside wedding and you want to make sure that your little paradise will not be disrupted by the sounds of a busy highway below or a steady stream of airplanes above. Spend some time at each potential venue at the same time of day you would have your ceremony or reception start to get a good feel for what will be going on in the area at that time. Also take into consideration how windy the spot is and if there will be adequate shade on a hot sunny day.
With the presence of plants on your roof you can also expect these natural beings to help improve the quality of air around you. It will also be able to help lessen the release of carbon monoxide. All the more reason for you to go into gardening so that you may help contribute in helping save the environment. For those who are really not into creating a roof garden design on their own can provide job openings for a lot of people who can do such. This applies to those who are into landscaping construction etc.
Some rooftop wind turbines will work more favorably when on the edge of a rooftop such as one that is long and flat (sort of like being on the edge of a cliff with an updraft). Others however on roofs with more angle or pitch will work more favorably in a higher location. Finding the right spot on the rooftop can add 5 to 40-percent more efficiency in electricity generation. One of the most obvious points is for home and business owners in rather windless areas to not buy rooftop wind turbines but rather opt for other alternative energy resources. Wind maps may help some determine if there is enough regional wind to justify the purchase of building of a rooftop wind turbine. Buying an inexpensive anemometer and tracking results is also helpful before making a decision.
