A home wind power system can be operational for 15-20 years. The maintenance of the system is estimated to cost only $0.01kWh Oscar Klefbom Womens Jersey , and this is partly due to the sleek design of the system, which includes few moving parts. Still, the turbines do need maintenance to keep the system operating efficiently and to make sure it's safe.

There are a few areas which succumb to wear and tear most readily, and which require regular maintenance. First, the turbines should be oiled and greased frequently to keep the few moving parts turning smoothly. The tower and rotor blades should be checked for corrosion and loose bolts Kailer Yamamoto Womens Jersey , two common issues that stem from constant use over the years. Also, electrical connections can cause problems, and should receive an annual check from an electrician.

In regards to the electrical connection between the turbine and the home, safety measures should be in effect. On-grid systems have a detection mechanism which shuts down the system if an outage occurs. It's important to make sure the mechanism is in place to protect utility employees who work on power lines. In addition, regular safety inspections should be conducted to prevent problems with the electrical system.

Over time Mark Letestu Womens Jersey , turbine blades can corrode. This is more common in wood blades, but most today are fiberglass, and can last longer before repairs are necessary. The blades may crack, requiring replacement, and the lead blade may require additional maintenance to keep the system moving efficiently. The climate Cam Talbot Womens Jersey , degree of turbulence, and age of the system all factor into maintenance of the blades.

One area of maintenance on older models is de-icing. On new models, the problem of ice collecting on the blades and then being flung off, creating a potentially dangerous situation for anyone on the ground, has been eliminated through technological improvements. New turbines will still collect ice Milan Lucic Womens Jersey , and the ice will slow the blades, but the ice slides down the blades toward the tower, rather than flying off as the blades spin.

Bearings, gearboxes, and rotor blades do require occasional replacement. Old or worn equipment can negatively affect the system's efficiency Darnell Nurse Womens Jersey , which means less energy for the household to use. Generally, parts need replacing every 10 years to keep the system running as smoothly as possible.

There are ways that homeowners can check the equipment on their own, and many times such checking is impossible to ignore. Grinding bolts or malfunctioning rotor blades can be seen and heard readily. Once the homeowner becomes accustomed to the normal functioning turbine, any problems are usually easy to spot. Also, an unusually high utility bill can be a clue as to a malfunctioning wind power system. If the system was installed by a company Patrick Maroon Womens Jersey , the installer usually offers a service period in which they'll come out to make repairs on the turbine.

With few moving parts and long life spans, wind power systems should be low maintenance. Annual inspections and normal observation by the homeowner ensure the system works properly, and keeps repair expenses to a minimum.Author's Resource BoxResidential Wind Energy

http:  Horse riding is an exhilarating experience and one which has been practiced for many centuries. Horses themselves have served us loyally as working animals, pets and even at war. Now, they're appreciated more for competitive sport where both man and animal display an understanding of one another.

For riders Ryan Strome Womens Jersey , safety is of paramount importance no matter how experienced they may be. A horse can be exceptionally well-trained but there may be instances where a failure in communication, environmental conditions or health problems can pose a risk to safety.


Similar to the use of helmets in motorcycle riding, horse riding too requires riders to protect their heads from falls and bumps. Even minor jarring can cause injury to the head and brain. Unfortunately, some percentage of riders still avoids wearing helmets on the premise that they're too 'hot' and heavy. This simply isn't true as modern helmets are very light and are actually up to 80 percent lighter than old models.

As for the lack of ventilation, it couldn't be further from the truth. Like motorcycle helmets which have undergone huge changes in design Adam Larsson Womens Jersey , equestrian helmets have also evolved to become very airy and according to studies, you actually feel cooler in a helmet than without one.

When purchasing helmets, look for one that's FEI or Standards Australia-approved. You'll come across models that don't feature a safety standards stamp but have labels like 'for dress only' instead. Know that they're not meant for proper riding. There are cases where consumers have unwittingly bought head gear not designed with safety standards and have ended up paying the ultimate price.

Safety vest

The spine, ribs and inner organs will all take a hard knock if you fall. As bulky and awkward as it feels at first, wearing a safety vest can greatly reduce the risk of serious injury. It's padded for protection and ventilated to prevent the buildup of excessive heat. For occasional riders who don't jump or race Kris Russell Womens Jersey , vests are not seen as a necessity. However, more pleasure riders are wearing them than before so you should also consider the same.

An appreciated trait of vests is that the bulk doesn't hinder the body or the arms and some wearers report being able to maintain their posture better when wearing one.

At a higher cost, you can purchase vests that come with air canisters which inflate them if you need to suddenly dismount.
