Commercial Skylights By Roofwerks in North Carolina
Roofwerks can help you plan and install the perfect skylights for your commercial building. That’s because we are the sister company of Solarwerks, A Velux Skylight contractor. We provide a number of different skylight options that are sure to fit your skylight project needs.
Why Should You Consider Commercial Skylights?
Artificial lighting is expensive and is one of the largest sources of energy consumption in commercial and industrial buildings. In any given year, the average cost of artificial lighting is about 40% of the building’s total energy consumption. When you hire Roofwerks to install your skylights, we’ll help reduce these costs by using natural light, which is free.
A properly designed skylit building can pay off the cost of the skylight installation in less than two years. This is because natural skylights can keep your artificial lighting off about 70-80% of the time. Speak to an expert at Roofwerks today and we can help you plan the perfect skylights for your building, so you can achieve the maximum energy savings, while obtaining your desired lighting levels.
Skylights For Office Buildings
Did you know that offices and manufacturing centers can help decrease absenteeism, while increasing employee productivity? According to The National Commission on Sleep Disorders Research, in the United States, businesses lose more than $150 billion annually as a result of employee fatigue. Cutting down on employee absenteeism, while increasing productivity is another way your skylights, by Roofwerks, will pay for themselves!
Skylights For Retail Locations
Natural light in your retail location can lead to increased sales. According to a study by HMG, stores without skylights could increase sales by up to 40% if they installed skylights. Not only were customers more likely to spend more money in stores with skylights, but they became more loyal customers. On top of an increase in spending, employees in naturally lit buildings were absent less, had better customer service scores, and worked harder. All of these effects are just another reason you should consider natural skylights by Roofwerks.
Skylights For Schools
Schools are always looking for ways to improve education for their students and teachers. The Pacific Gas & Electric Company conducted a student performance study and found that students, in naturally lit environments, were able to progress faster in both math and reading tests than students in artificially lit environments.
Aside from better student performance employee skylights can provide better work performance from school employees. Having skylights installed can also provide energy savings to school systems as well, allowing those school systems to free up more funds for educational needs.
Skylights For Hospitals
Natural light has positive health effects for patients in hospitals. Studies conducted by the Center for Health Design, in Concord, California, showed that better lighting and access to natural light can shorten hospital stays. In some cases, lack of daylight, along with other factors, can lead to Seasonal Affective Disorder. The good news is that skylights can increase natural light in your hospital, which will not only save your health system money on energy costs, but may help your patients get better sooner.
