Achieve Energy Savings with Skylights
Artificial lighting is one of the biggest sources of energy consumption in commercial and industrial applications. Typically artificial lighting accounts for an average of 40% of the building‚Äôs total energy. Utilizing the high visible light transmittance from a skylight has been shown to reduce these energy costs through the benefits of daylighting. Proper design, installation and placement of a skylight results in a skylight-to-floor ratio (SFR) of between 4% – 6%. With proper design, the cost of a skylight is paid back in an average of less than two years. The high visible light transmittance skylights allow means artificial lights can be turned off on average of 70% – 80% of the time.
Energy savings achieved from reducing your buildings dependency on electric lighting far exceeds any heat gain or heat loss in the vast majority of applications.
Maximize Energy Efficieny
Skylights typically provide less heat than electric lighting when you choose a skylight that has superior visible light transmittance. Skylights that come with features like thermal breaks, weep systems and a high haze factor will maximize energy¬†efficiency making them ideal for all commercial and industrial applications. Skylight Installers.ca will help you determine the ideal number of skylights to achieve maximum energy savings or obtain a desired lighting level.
