2012 didn’t bring any good news about climate change. Financially with still much debate filling Australian Media Channels about Climate Tax, the only thing Australian Home Owners know for certain is that for the foreseeable future we all have to work hard on cutting our energy output and making use of the sun as a carbon neutral, not to mention free, energy source. One problem with the sun beating down almost constantly on our roofs is that this makes a constant source of heat in our homes, with many of us looking for ways to effectively get rid of this excess heat with roof ventilation. The usual answer is to use a whirlybird roof vent but we all know how noisy these can be, not to mention that on calmer days they provide no more ventilation than a passive hole in your roof. Well the good news is there is a now a much more effective and quieter method of ventilating that space which has no running costs, is up to fifteen times more effective and with the optional thermostat can automatically switch off when not needed. The Solar Star Roof Ventilation unit by Solatube saves condensation from building up in the roof space without letting in any moisture from outside and can be fitted in less than thirty minutes. Our roofs also block out much needed natural daylight and we often-fit roof window skylights to lighten dimly lit rooms below. But what if you don’t have direct roof access above? There is a solution with a Solatube Skylight or otherwise know as a 'Daylighting System', which is designed to work over long distances to channel that much needed natural light up to 9m, to brighten WIR, Bathrooms, your work surfaces, reading area or where ever extra light is needed. Tubular skylights have health benefits as well as saving on energy, natural light is far better for us but they also benefit our pets: fish, birds, dogs and any other animals will be happier and healthier when they are resting and playing in natural sunlight. Our roofs and our ceilings don’t have to be cluttered with ugly practical fittings either, both our Solar Star roof ventilators and Solatube skylights will sit snugly and unobtrusively on your roof, while inside, the Solatube ‘light’ comes in enough different designs to suit any decorative style.
