Achieve Energy Savings with Skylights

Energy Saving with SkylightsArtificial 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.
