Are you ready to go green? If you have made the eco friendly decision to light up your home with energy efficient products, then a daylighting system is what you need. When choosing a daylighting system and before installing it, you should consider certain factors. Get one of the daylighting system technicians or staff to take a look at your home. They will be the best people to advice you on how to go about buying your daylighting system and advising you on how to get it installed.
Factors to consider when choosing your daylighting system
There are straight roofs and pitched roofs. There are roofs that are covered with shingles, roofs with eaves, and roofs that are tiled. The type of roof you have is an important factor when it comes to buying your daylighting system. Daylighting systems can be fixed on any type of roof, but there are different fixtures to help install them, depending on the type of roof.
Where you place the daylighting system’s reflecting dome is important. It should be placed in a position that receives the most sunlight. It should be angled towards the sun’s rays and should be in a spot that is not shadowed by neighboring buildings or trees
Your daylighting system should be able to withstand weather conditions. It should have some kind of protection to face rough weather.
The tubing for your daylighting systems should be of good quality, and should lend itself to angles. Only then can it be used to reach light to the hard to reach spaces, like hallways and closets.
Requires low maintenance
A good daylighting system should require very little maintenance. It should come with a good guarantee, and the dealer from whom you are purchasing the system should have people who will respond immediately, in case you have any problems.
The daylighting system should have good add on fixtures, like light fixtures, dimmer switches, flashings etc. This makes it even more efficient, and enhances the system and the look of the house.
