Australian temperatures can get quite high during the summer months. As a result, over 4.9 million Australians have at least one air conditioner in their home or business. But of course, air conditioners can increase your utility bills and your carbon footprint. That’s why you should consider installing a VELUX roof window.
Decreasing your utility bill every month is not the only perk of having a roof window. Today we’re giving you 4 reasons why you should install a roof window or a VELUX fixed skylight for your business or home.
Keep reading to find out more about why roof windows could be the ideal installation for your space.
1. A Roof Window is Energy Efficient
Electric lighting and air cons use up a lot of energy & as a result, will increase your carbon footprint. During the day the sun will light up your room reducing your need to use electrical lighting fixtures that impact on your energy consumption and utility costs.
With glass made from innovative materials, there is also no solar heat gain so you will save on air conditioning costs and reduce your carbon footprint.
2. Cleaner Air from Above
AC/HV systems may work to allow air from outside to enter a room. However, if you don’t change air filters regularly it can push dirty air into your house or workspace. Mould, dust and other contaminants will make their way through the AC system which can cause major health problems. Natural ventilation from an open skylight or roof window will allow clean fresh air to flow into your space.
3. Allows Natural Light to Flow into Your Space
As mentioned before, a roof window is the perfect installation if you want to allow natural light to shine into your space during the day. Even on cloudy days, the natural light will still illuminate your room.
4. A Roof Window is Aesthetically Pleasing
Roof windows come in all different shapes and sizes, so if you want to change up the aesthetics of your space, then it’s the ideal installation for you. Installing an open skylight is perfect for office foyers or home sunrooms. A roof window can also provide you with spectacular views of the sky.
