Home Living : October 5th 2010
HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, October 5, 2010 5 Do the light fantastic » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING We've heard it all before -- rising cost of living, paying more for energy, and that carbon footprint. But we are still not doing enough to lessen our carbon footprint and, as a result, forking out for higher energy bills. But there is good news. Solatube has created a system that utilises daylight to light interior spaces, and no, it's not an inefficient skylight. Quickly installed, Solatube's system uses no electricity for operation and negates the need for artificial lighting during the day, thus significantly reducing energy costs and environmental impact. And if you consider that 10 per cent of a family home's energy bill is just for lighting, the consumption benefits of Solatube are outstanding. The system is called a Solatube tubular daylighting device and, by installing just one 160 model, you can expect to save about 8 kg of carbon emissions annually. In addition to saving on energy costs and reducing environmental impact, Solatube's tubular daylighting devices block out UVB and UVC radiation, and more than 95 per cent of UVA rays, so your family and treasured household items are protected. So how does it work? A rooftop dome captures daylight from pre-dawn to post-dusk and it then travels down patented reflective tubing in the roof. A diffuser sits flush with the ceiling inside and reflected daylight shines through the diffuser into the room below. The exterior dome is unobtrusive and interior fixtures look just like an artificial light fixture, with a variety of styles to suit your lighting preferences and decor. So combat ever-increasing energy costs and protect your family from harsh UV rays -- and do your bit for the environment.
