Why You Need a Skylight for your Canberra Home

Posted on 25th Sep 2017

Most people are aware of how skylights can increase the amount of natural light in a room when windows aren't an option. However, many homeowners are now choosing to install skylights because of their transformative properties. There are so many different types of skylights now on the market that almost any room can be perfectly balanced and brightened with natural light. In fact, installing skylights in Canberra is on the rise. Here are just a few reasons why.

Skylights are Energy Efficient

The most obvious way that a skylight will lower your energy bill, is by reducing the need for electric lighting. But did you know that skylights can also operate as a natural air conditioning system? When opened, an electric venting  skylight draws warm air up, so the air below feels much cooler.

Enjoy Privacy & Natural Light

Want more natural light but concerned about privacy? You’re not alone. Homes aren’t being built on big blocks of land anymore and we are closer to our neighbours than ever before. This is where a skylight can provide the perfect balance of natural light and privacy. In Canberra, skylights in bathrooms are becoming more and more popular as privacy is a must, but natural light is also a priority.


Bring Small Spaces to Life

Small spaces can often be dark due to small windows, or no windows at all. While there is always the option of adding extra lighting, the unnatural glow of artificial light can sometimes make a small space feel even more claustrophobic because of increased heat. What’s the solution?  A skylight of course!
