Should I cover my wind turbines in the winter?


Hello,
I have two wind turbines on my roof. I notice some people cover theirs in the winter. What is best, uncovered or covered?
Thanks,
Shannon

No need to cover them. Attic needs ventilation year-round.
If you're worried about heat loss, add insulation to the ceiling. Once the heat passes the ceiling, it's gone and blocking the vents won't help, and may cause condensation and mold issues.

As well as ice damming.
