Add Natural Light With Skylights
Is your home or office dark, and no matter how many curtains you open, the light just doesn’t come through? Have you considered installing skylights?
A skylight can completely change the character of a room, adding light, and a sense of space and style. The main benefit of installing a sky light is the cost savings associated with increased natural light. Rooms with a skylight require less artificial lighting, resulting in a decrease in energy costs
Types of Skylight
- Roof windows – Roof windows are a popular choice for cathedral ceilings and flat roofs where there is little roof space. Roof windows allow you to see directly outside and are usually openable, allowing heat to escape.
- Traditional skylights – Traditional skylights are square or round in shape and they consist of a roof dome and ceiling diffuser. Sky lights typically have long white, coloured or flexible light wells, a diffuser panel fitted at ceiling level and can be vented or non-vented, fixed or operable.
- Tubular skylights – Like traditional sky lights, tubular skylights consist of a roof dome and a ceiling diffuser but the dome and the diffuser are joined by highly reflective tubing. Tubular skylights transmit sunlight down a highly reflective light well and diffuse it at ceiling level around the room.
