What is the difference between roof windows and roof skylights?
You may be feeling confused if you’ve seen both of these terms being used. After all, they certainly sound like they could be used interchangeably! Both serve the same purpose – allowing natural light into a room – and both are essentially made of glass or another glazed material.
The difference between the two is that roof windows are designed to be a little larger in size than roof skylights, possibly creating an exit point for people needing to get out of the premises in case of an emergency.
The benefits of installing roof skylights in your Melbourne home
There are numerous benefits to having roof skylights fitted to your home or place of business, and they all come from the increase in natural light.
You reduce your energy consumption due to being less reliant on artificial light sources. This is not only good for the environment, but good for your wallet too!
Natural sunlight is considered to be one of nature’s best disinfectants, and can stave off the growth and build-up of mould and mildew in rooms of the house that are typically damp and moist, such as the bathroom or laundry.
In a workplace environment, sunlight is regarded as one of the most effective mood enhancers. Allowing natural light in through roof skylights helps to elevate employees’ moods, which in turn increases productivity and improves workplace performance.
Roof windows can also improve the value of your property thanks to their visual and environmental appeal.
