SKYLIGHTS AND DAYLIGHTING SYSTEMS

Skylights and daylighting can save building owners thousands of dollars on energy costs for electric lighting in a building.

Since significant daylight is often available during utility peak demand hours, daylighting can reduce these demands, lower your energy costs and lower our impact on the planet.

There are a wide array of daylighting products and solutions available to assist building owners with adding natural light to their building envelope, thereby cutting energy costs. Many of these products come with warranties as long as 20 years, covering any incident of leakage in the skylight, curb or flashing installation.

DAYLIGHTING FAQs

Doesn't daylighting allow too much heat into a building?

Actually no. In fact, the light-to-heat ratio for daylighting is actually cooler than that of electric lights. Properly designed daylighting screens out 99% of the sun’s heat while providing excellent lighting.

For daylighting to be effective don't you need constant sunny weather?

False! Even an overcast sky provides a hundred times more light than is needed for daylighting.
