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’s 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.
