The ancients understood the value of skylights and built them into the roof of many public buildings, the most obvious example being the 2,000 year old Pantheon in Rome, which is still standing. What the ancients didn't have was glass to cover those skylights with so they were open to the elements. Fortunately, today's skylights come with double and triple-glazing that not only keeps the rain and snow out it keeps the heat in. If you're looking for a way to open up a perpetually gloomy space consider 600mm skylights from Rooflights & Roof Lanterns.
600mm Skylights: The Practical Upgrade
People often go to great lengths and great expense to enhance the energy efficiency of their home but such effort and expense is not always necessary. 600mm skylights installed in the right places can greatly reduce dependence on electric lighting while at the same time allowing you to bask in the warmth produced by natural light and give your boiler a break. And they’ll do so for just a fraction of the cost of a renovation.
More Skylight Benefits
Skylights provide something for just about everyone. For cost-conscious businesses, they can reduce lighting and heating costs. For style-conscious homeowners, they can add an unmistakable air of sophistication. But that's not all. Here are some more benefits of installing 600mm skylights:
1. Reduced carbon footprint - By allowing you to turn down the thermostat and turn off lights, skylights will reduce the carbon footprint of your home or business.
2. Enhanced kerb appeal - The fact that your home will look better from the street is more than a nicety. Enhanced kerb appeal can produce a quantifiable bump in your home’s value.
3. Greater levels of privacy - If you’re getting light through the ceiling you do not need to leave the blinds or curtains open all the time.
4. Enhanced ventilation - Skylights that open can create air movement through your house on a level you probably never imagined. This can significantly reduce your air conditioning bills while making your house more liveable all year round.
