Condenser Question – Who Do You Go To?

Today’s condenser question is as follows: I have been learning how to wind a turbine for quite some time now, but I am starting to wonder if I should learn from the experts. Is it wiser to go to a professional? Or maybe I can do it on my own and save money in the process? Here are the pros and cons of doing this on your own, and why I say that it might be better to go to the experts.

First, you will not be able to get all the answers if you’re learning by yourself. This means you may have to spend a lot of time studying rather than getting the answers. While it is more convenient for some people, this could be the most dangerous decision to make when you’re learning how to build a wind turbine, because it could mean missing out on some important information. Next, if you decide to build your own, you’ll be at the mercy of whoever provides the tools for you. If they give you a high quality product, then you won’t have to worry about being out hundreds of dollars, but they could be giving you a low quality product that could eventually end up in your garbage. Finally, while it is certainly a possibility that you could save money on your investment, the more time you take to build it, the less time you will have to spend testing it.

Here is a condensed version of the question, though it has more to do with “who” you should go to for help and not with “what” you should be doing. Should you take the easiest way out? Should you go to the most expensive place? Should you take the risk of having a defective product? The answer is neither and both, so I would advise against either.
