Energy Efficiency Consultation

Natural light is an unparalleled source of illumination, but in our pursuit of brightness, it’s essential to consider our home’s energy efficiency. At Skylights NZ, we’re dedicated to helping Kiwis find the perfect balance. Our Energy Efficiency Consultation provides insights into how you can harness the sun’s brilliance while ensuring your home remains energy-efficient and comfortable throughout the year.

The Importance of Energy Efficiency

  • Environmental Responsibility: Reducing energy consumption means a lower carbon footprint, aligning with New Zealand’s goals for a greener future.
  • Cost Savings: Energy-efficient homes often lead to reduced energy bills, offering long-term financial benefits.
  • Comfort: Properly designed skylights can prevent unwanted heat gain during summer and heat loss during winter, maintaining a comfortable indoor temperature.

Skylights & Energy Efficiency

Several factors determine a skylight’s energy efficiency:

  • Glazing: Double or triple glazing can provide better insulation than single-glazed skylights.
  • Tints and Coatings: Certain tints and coatings can reduce UV radiation and infrared light, preventing excessive heat while letting in visible light.
  • Placement: The position of a skylight affects its energy efficiency. For instance, north-facing skylights in New Zealand can offer consistent illumination without excessive heat.
  • Operable Skylights: Skylights that open can aid in natural ventilation, reducing the need for air conditioning in warmer months.

Making the Right Choice

While skylights can be a boon for natural lighting, their impact on energy efficiency largely depends on the choices made during selection and installation. Here’s how Skylights NZ can guide you:

  • Information Resources: Our extensive library offers articles and resources on the energy efficiency of different skylight types.
  • Expert Insights: Engage with experts through our platform to ask specific questions or get personalised advice.
  • Installer Recommendations: If you decide to proceed with an installation, we can connect you with professionals who have a track record of prioritising energy efficiency.

The beauty of skylights isn’t just in the light they bring in but also in their potential to make homes more energy-efficient. At Skylights NZ, we’re passionate about helping New Zealanders make informed decisions, ensuring that every beam of sunlight entering your home does so in the most responsible and efficient manner possible.
