Achieve energy savings with skylights. Artificial lighting is one of the largest sources of energy consumption in commercial and industrial applications. On average, artificial lighting accounts for 40% of a building’s total energy. Installing skylights allows artificial lighting to be turned off on average 70% - 80% of the time. With rapidly rising electricity prices, the installation of skylights makes sound business sense. Retail: Skylights in retail applications have been found to be positively and significantly correlated to higher sales. Studies have shown that non sky-lit stores increase sales by 40% by incorporating skylights. Customers report that they frequent the sky-lit stores because of positive environmental feelings, such as stores feeling cleaner, more spacious or brighter. Offices & manufacturing: Natural light can boost a person’s energy levels by up to 24%, according to scientific experts. This has been shown to decrease absenteeism and increase productivity. The National Commission on Sleep Disorders Research estimates that, in the United States alone, businesses lose more than $150 billion a year in productivity as a result of employee fatigue due to lack of daylight. One such company reported that after day-lighting its facility they achieved 15% higher worker productivity. As an added bonus, the company saved $300,000 to $400,000 a year on energy bills. Schools: Skylights in schools have been positively correlated to better student performance. Studies conducted in the US found that those students in classrooms with the most daylight progressed 20% faster on math tests and 26% faster on reading tests in one year than those with the least amount of daylight. 72% of the cost of energy in education buildings goes towards electricity, with the majority (56%) going toward lighting. School spending on annual energy costs is second only to salaries and exceeds that of computers, supplies and books. Properly applying skylights into educational buildings can provide energy savings over time whilst improving student performance. With proper design, the cost of skylights is often paid back in less than two years. Greenup Australia offers a wide range of high quality double glazed skylights that let the natural light in whilst keeping the heat and UV out – saving you money, increasing sales and improving productivity.
