Why install Skylights
Lower your energy bills
Solar is a free, renewable resource that never runs out, and will enable you to avoid switching on your electric lights until after the sun has set. With gas and power bills continuing to skyrocket across the country, investing in a system that harnesses natural light is a no-brainer.
Create a sustainable home
Like any window, the right skylight system has the potential to help increase energy efficiency in your home or office (and reduce energy costs), especially when it comes eliminating heat transfer and making the most of passive solar heating.
“Solatube’ s Daylighting Systems incorporate a wide variety of technological features, including advanced optical technology in the dome, patented protective coatings on the tubing, and dual lens systems to greatly reduce temperature exchanges between the interior and exterior of the home.
Also, with modern house blocks shrinking, which means homes are being built closer to one another, skylights provide a natural light source without compromising on privacy.
Boost wellbeing and workplace productivity
There are numerous studies outlining the detrimental effects that come with too much exposure to artificial light. Everything from deteriorating vision and sleep disorders to low energy levels have been attributed to compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and light emitting diodes (LEDs) emitted from our televisions, tablets, computer screens, and light bulbs.
“Exposure to natural sunlight, on the other hand, is known to boost mood, overall health, and even workplace productivity. Installing a skylight is a great way to increase your exposure to pure, natural light without having to spend more time outdoors.
Harness the sun to use as a night light
Perfect for families with young children and those all too frequent middle-of-the-night wake-up calls, solar electric night lights harvest daylight during the day and then emit a soft ambient light during the night.
During the day, our Solar Electric Nightlight captures electricity by solar panels inside the Spectralight Infinity Tubes and stores it in two AA NiMH 1500 mAh 1.2V rechargeable batteries, which are commonly available in supermarkets and hardware stores. “One full day’s charge will power two LEDs during the night.
So, if you’re an early bird who gets up at the crack of dawn, or a night owl who is always the last to go to bed, solar electric night lights mean you’ll no longer wake up the rest of the household.
“We are so happy with the skylight that Peter installed. He was helpful and, professional. It was a difficult job due to problems with the roof. The result is amazing” Martin and Rose (Arncliffe NSW).
