Wind Chimes FAQ

We get a lot of questions about wind chimes from our customers so we thought we’d gather them together here in one easy-to-find location for you! 

Where Should Wind Chimes Be Placed?

You’ll need to place your wind chimes in an area that has enough of a breeze to help them make some noise. According to feng shui, wind chimes help bring in new healthy energy where old collected energy is stuck. The placement of the wind chimes when considering feng shui is as follows; metal wind chimes should be placed in the west, northwest and north, while wood or bamboo chimes can be set up in the south, east and southeast areas. 

How Do They Work?

The vibrations of the pipes in the wind chimes radiate the sound you hear after they’re struck by something. This usually involves the clapper in the center of the wind chime striking the pipes after the wind moves its position. 

How Are They Made?

Traditional wind chimes are made using a combination of aluminum tubes, wood, braided nylon string, and metal fasteners. The process involves cutting the wood top into the desired shape and treating that wood to withstand the elements. Holes are drilled into the wood so the strings can pass through to hold the pipes. The pipes are cut and computer tuned to provide the pitches you hear when they’re struck. Holes are then drilled into the pipes so they can be suspended from the top.  The entire wind chime is then assembled by hand by stringing the line through the pipes and top which is linked to the hanger and clapper. The last step is attaching the hang tie.  

Are Wind Chimes Good Luck?

Wind chimes are said to attract happiness, good fortune, prosperity and good luck. According to feng shui, where you place your wind chime depends on the type of luck you can expect from them. For example, if you hang your wind chime in the West you can expect good luck for your loved ones. 

Can Chimes Keep Birds Away?

While unusual or unexpected noises can keep birds away for a short time, once they get used to the sounds they’ll return. It’s a good temporary solution but shouldn’t be relied on as a way to keep birds off your property for the long term.

Can They Get Wet?

While wind chimes are treated to withstand different weather conditions, they should be brought inside during the winter or before a big storm rolls in. You don’t want violent winds to bang your wind chimes together too hard or they could break. Also, if wooden chimes are always wet you could have a mold or algae problem.

What Are They Made Of?

Wind chimes are available in a number of different materials depending on your preference. While the most popular choices are metal or wood, you can also get them in glass, bamboo, stone, shell, beads, porcelain, keys, stoneware, and earthenware. Each of these produces a different sound when struck.

When To Hang Wind Chimes?

You should hang your wind chimes when the weather is nice. This means not hanging them out during a wind, rain, or snow storm. Instead, put them outside when the breeze is blowing or the weather is clear. This will help you avoid damaging the chimes and make them last longer. 

Will They Keep Animals Out of Your Garden?

Like birds, animals will get used to the noise of wind chimes over time. This means they won’t be as effective as investing in fencing or plants that act as deterrents.
