Wind turbines for homes can be the perfect addition for the person intent on saving money on their electricity costs every month. With all the new options out there that are available, there will likely be an option that fits perfectly into your budget and unique conditions at home.
With that being said, wind turbines for homes are not always a perfect fit though. You need to dive in to the details on a project like this and look before you leap or you could end up with a not so attractive roof ornament instead of a power producer.
These are the areas that you need to cover before you start to look seriously at wind turbines for homes&hellip;
Wind attributes at your home - The first thing that you must always come to grips with is how much energy can you actually produce with a wind turbine at your home. Many people would like to avoid this step because it is a lot of trouble and takes quite a lot of time. As a matter of fact though, taking the proper data collection will slow your project down by 6 to 12 months - that is, if you do it right. If you choose not to take this step you are simply guessing. You may get it right and then again you may not get it right. But, in any case it will be pure happenstance if you are successful. Therefore, you need to quell your exuberance for the moment and take some data to understand where you have wind energy and where you do not have it around your house.
Available space to put one - While the roof can be an excellent place to install a turbine in these usually the first choice for most people due to Roof Effect, there are other places as well that need to be seriously considered if you're trying to extract the most wind energy that you can from a given property. Mounting a wind turbine on top of a tower will always give you the best results, but it basically doubles the cost of the project because the tower is quite expensive. However, if you are up high on the tower you are going to be above all of the disturbance the trees and buildings can cause to the airflow.
Rules and regulations - You need to take these into account because the permitting process can shut down a wind turbine at your house very quickly. The rules limiting local installation of wind turbines in some places can be very strict. However, in some places like Oklahoma, there are no restrictions at all and everyone is very glad to see home wind turbines put up almost anywhere.
Wind turbines for home can at least partially solve the problem of high power costs at your house. But, the devil is in the details and you should study before you start.
