Skylight installers

The merits of installing a skylight in your home are numerous. Natural sunlight is healthier, more expressive, and more calming than artificial. However, it is not nearly as common to hear discussion on the benefits of skylights during the wee hours of the night. The impact is not as noticeable, but there are benefits to skylights when the sun goes down, as well.

Moonlight and starlight provides a number of key benefits. Not in the moon-tanning or mystic sense, we’ll leave that realm to itself for the moment, but purely for the psychological element. Moonlight is roughly 500 000 times …

The Whirlybird

In the hottest continent in the world, we are obliged to battle the heat for much of the season. The excessive summer temperatures don’t make for a particularly hospitable work environment, but at the very least, we should be able to count on a reasonable degree of relaxing coolness in our homes.

Circulation is absolutely vital for our houses. Heated air can be trapped in ceiling spaces, warmed by the roof shingles, leading to a crawlspace feeling more like a Turkish bath. This heat radiates through the ceiling and walls, and can make the house a sweatbox. This is felt especially …

Don’t vent if you haven’t got proper ventilation

The Australian climate is very unpredictable and at times unforgiving. With long, hot, dry summers and cool winters, you never know what the weather is going to be like. As a result of these conditions our homes can become extremely hot in the summer and unbearably cold during the winter.

As a homeowner, if you are fed up with the uncomfortable temperatures in your household, the most cost-effective way to solve this issue is to install a Solar Bright roof ventilation system . As the leading experts in roof ventilation, the team at Solar Bright know that people want to be …

Skylights Take off in Sydney

The architectural crowds, competing for space in Sydney’s red-hot housing and urban design industries, are often used as a litmus test for what is trending with new home builders today. They are sensitive to the needs and demands of their clients, and they need to be, to reach such a position as theirs as the gatekeeper of new housing trends.

 

Lately, the trend has been defined quite clearly: new home builders in Sydney these days are going wild over skylights. Natural light, soft and seasonally-aware, has been given a notable vote of confidence by designers of late, and has been invited …

The Health Benefits of Natural Sunlight: Pt. III

A healthy balance of your body’s hormone levels is clearly vital to good health, and having evolved to absorb sunlight and process it, our modern lifestyle – one which results in a large amount of time being spent indoors – has disrupted this natural process.

In Part III, we wrap up the series with a discussion on some of the detriments of indoor lighting, and the positive stress-relief measures provided by natural …

The Health Benefits of Natural Sunlight: Pt. II

In Part One, we discussed the nature of a solar exposure deficiency among modern urbanites, and its relation to mental health, specifically, in its ability to release endorphins and aid with mental alertness. But is that all that we gain with daily exposure to the sunlight you’re exposed to through your new solar tube or skylight?

The Health Benefits of Natural Sunlight: Pt. I

Australians, now more than ever, have busy schedules. The pace of the modern world has many of us operating at full capacity, and recent communication innovations have meant many of us find it difficult to extract ourselves and relax. There are reasons why stress-related illnesses have risen sharply in recent years.

 

One of the contributing factors to this decline in mental health has been attributed to a lack of sunlight. Over time, people evolved with daily exposure. We grew accustomed to it regulating our circadian rhythm and sleep cycles, among other body processes.
