Servicing Brisbane for over 24 years
Brisbane Skylights and Ventilation systems have been servicing the wider Brisbane region since 1994. Offering a complete range of Solatube Daylighting Systems and Home ventilation products.
Tubular skylights are not just skylights: they are high-performance daylighting systems that use advanced optical technologies to significantly improve the way daylight is harnessed. Solatube’ s patented Raybender® 3000 technology captures a steady stream of light, meaning a consistent amount of light – regardless of the time of day or weather conditions. Each Solatube is lined with Spectra Light Infinity, the most reflective material available. It helps the light ‘bounce’ down the tube, retaining 99.7 per cent of entering light, before being directed to the area below. When it reaches room height, a diffuser assists in delivering an even spread of light to the room.
It means that because you aren’t actually using any electricity during the day, you aren’t paying a thing. The light is then evenly distributed into a room via the diffuser, which can be dimmed or blocked depending on your needs.
Solatube is completely passive, so you can save the environment while you save money on your lighting bills.
The light can also be boosted by using optional electric light kits. One complements the other, providing householders with all the light they need and saving money on utility bills.
How can I save money with a Skylight from Brisbane Skylights
Lighting in Australian homes accounts for up to 15 per cent of the average household electricity budget (and about 6 per cent of its energy use) – and with electricity prices surging, that’s a huge impost. But one of the easiest – and healthiest – ways to reduce costs is all around us. Natural light.
Solatube, the Australian company that pioneered tubular Skylighting technology, provides systems that use solar energy to light the inside of a home – and that means you’ll save money immediately, plus you’ll be benefiting from natural light.
Australian householders pay the highest electricity prices in the world – and by harnessing natural light, it can make a huge difference.
One of the things that people don’t pay enough attention to about electric lights is that they don’t stop paying for them after they make their initial purchase. The more you use your lights, the higher your utility bills. While switching to LED downlights will save you hundreds each year, they still use expensive electricity – especially as most households have scores of downlights to operate.
Not only are householders, commercial operators and government bodies looking to offset artificial lighting costs, they’re also opting for natural light because of the myriad ‘human’ benefits – from helping with better sleep, boosting Vitamin D storage, enhancing productivity, to improving mood.
By effectively capturing and bringing daylight into your interiors from the early morning until late afternoon, Solatube’ s solutions can improve your health while reducing your need to rely on other traditional sources of lighting. It’s easy to create a happy, safe environment through daylight.
Solatube Daylighting Systems are an economical solution for lighting hallways, ensuites, study nooks, walk-in wardrobes and pantries, storerooms or any room that has small-sized windows, windows shaded by buildings and trees, or a south-facing aspect. Not only will ample light hinder the growth of mould, you will no longer have to fumble in the dark for the light switch or remember to turn it off.
Solatube systems are easy to install and can be installed on just about any type of roof, regardless of the slope or orientation towards the sun.
