How to stop mould moving in
Unlike prospective buyers or tenants, mould isn’t too fussy about where it resides – on walls, ceilings, rugs, carpets, tiles, furniture and clothing – as long as it’s damp and lacking in natural light.
The key to keeping a home free of this harmful fungus is proper ventilation and natural light. NSW Health recommends using exhaust fans while bathing, operating a clothes dryer and cooking and to open windows when the weather permits.
Solatube’ s solar-powered Solar Star helps reduce the chance of mould occurring in roof cavities. Substantially different to a wind vent, it’s designed to create a cooler, drier home by removing heat and moisture from the roof cavity without adding to your energy bill or compromising your security and letting in dust, rain or pollution. The Solar Star is also whisper quiet and easy to install.
Many older homes have bathroom ventilation that goes into the roof cavity, which can lead to even greater moisture – and thus mould build up.
More energy efficient homes with less temperature fluctuations and better-quality insulation are likely to have less mould incidents. You may be running your fans, dehumidifier and air-conditioning unit to cool and dry your home to reduce mould growth, but heat and moisture continues to come down from your ceiling, which hinders your efforts and costs you money.
How Solatube Skylights Work
If you’re looking for a way to brighten your home or commercial building with natural light that won’t cost you a cent in electricity, a skylight is the way to go. Traditional skylights are simply windows in the roof or a slightly more sophisticated tubular affair, but they all rely on having a direct line from the sky to the room. Solatube skylights, Australia’s most technologically sophisticated skylights, have no such limitation.
Solatube’ s advanced, patented technologies are making Solatube skylight systems so effective. Our Raybender 3000 technology takes in an incredible amount of ambient daylight, absorbing only visible spectrum light while reflecting away infrared light that can add heat to your home and ultraviolet light that can harm your skin. Once the light has gone inside, our Spectralight Infinity tubing transports it to the building interior. It’s made from the world’s most reflective material, transmitting 99.7% of the light each time it bounces off the wall of the tube.
Are you getting the most out of natural light in your home
The Benefits of natural light on human bodies are numerous, we work better, we feel better, we even think better but the most important aspect of natural light is how it regulates our circadian rhythm (our body cycles and how well we sleep at night). A substantial impact on these aspects is caused by the different sunlight wave length during the day that can been seen though the colour of the sky, sun set, mid-day to sun rise. We see these changes because sunlight passes through more air at sunset and sunrise than during the day
