Solatube Canberra has been servicing Canberra and the surrounding region since 2011. They have provided daylight to over 4000 homes, and have installed more than 6000 daylighting systems.
Solatube is a worldwide leader in tubular daylighting systems which provide daylight as part of a design movement in eco-friendly buildings, also known as green building.
Solatube Canberra can help cut energy consumption so that there is no need to have lights on through the day. Director Ben Potter said his goal was to provide daylight to as many homes as possible to stop the use of electric lighting through the day.
The most common area of the house for installation is the kitchen. Ben said this is part of the house is where most light is needed during the day and the addition of a double-glazed Solatube achieves this. The systems are installed in under two hours by qualified trades people, with no mess or fuss.
“It’s a simple installation.The results are unbelievable and our customers are blown away by the outcome” Ben said.
Replacing older, poor performing skylights with Solatubes is very popular. This improves a homes energy rating by stopping heat transfer and cold leaks.
“Our business is focused on improving the year-round comfort of your home, making sure your gas and electricity bills are reduced. If your home is airtight and draft free, it stays warmer in winter, and cooler in summer.”
Solatube is a dominating force when it comes to roof ventilation too. The roof space in a home is often overlooked yet maintaining a regulated temperature can have far-reaching benefits for the entire home. Many customers are seeing the advantages of installing roof ventilation but with a range of products on the market, it is often difficult to know which product is perfect for your needs.
Roof ventilation is important during both the hot and cold months and encourages a healthier environment. Moisture, as well as heat, can cause structural damage to roof trusses, creating a perfect environment for the growth of mould, and encourage creepy crawlies.
Active roof ventilation will continually circulate the air in your roof space. This exchange of fresh outside air will help maintain an ambient temperature and remove the damaging conditions. This has a dramatic effect on your air-conditioning system in summer, as the cool air pumped into your home passes through the ductwork in the ceiling.
It takes extra effort (and expense) for your system to cool that air if the roof space is hot.
