Why skylights or whirly birds?

Skylights perform a number of key functions. Firstly, they help the warming and cooling in a home. In the summer they allow hot air to escape (if they can be opened) and insulate in the winter time. Skylights also provide a source of natural light to a home, reducing the energy costs of lighting.

Whirly birds are a type of semi-mechanical vent that can be installed on the roof to help remove heat from the ceiling cavity. Thus, cooling down your roof cavity and allowing air to flow through.

Skylights can save you energy by lighting up darker rooms.

If you’re thinking about getting a skylight installed in your home, but you’re not sure if it’s the right investment. Just like getting your roof replaced or choosing new gutters, there are several considerations.

As professionals, we understand the pros and cons of having skylights and how to avoid the pitfalls — particularly by choosing the right equipment and approaching each situation with the homeowner’s best interests in mind.

Adding natural light (and solar heating) to your spaces

One of the biggest benefits of skylights is how they allow natural light to enter your space. And with that light comes solar heat. Why does that matter for you? Natural light is known to improve mood and even help with performance in workplaces. Heating your home with sunlight can save on heating costs during the chilly seasons.

Letting in fresh air and better ventilation

Skylight windows can open to let in the fresh air. This helps with cross ventilation in stuffy rooms, freshens up the air and cools down your living spaces without turning on the air conditioner.

Saving on energy costs (electric and heating)

How do you prevent clogged gutters and downspouts in the first place? The easiest way is to have mesh gutter guards professionally installed; this diverts the majority of rubbish away from your gutters, falling harmlessly on the ground.
