Global Warming versus Metallic Rooftops and Skylights
Regular Skylights make it more difficult for your air conditioner to
cool your house;
a two-by-four-foot clear glass skylight requires 240 extra kilowatt hours of electricity every year, enough to power the average television.
The Department of Energy has introduced an initiative to encourage the installation of smarter solar energy systems on one million roofs by the year 2010.
If successful, it will reduce carbon emissions every year by an amount equal to that produced by 850,000 cars.
Metallic Roofs and Dome-like Skylights reflect solar light from the daylight sun without the excessive heat gain of traditional skylights.
This alternative lighting method brightens your interiors with free, renewable energy natural light.
As energy savers, they contribute to AC load reduction and reduce electrical consumption.
Whether you are building new construction or remodeling existing, you can use sun lighting to save on those power bills.
Natural solar lighting are a great choice for commercial and residential day lighting.
Reflective surfaces, like glaciers, reduce heat.
Scientists predict that if global warming continues at its present rate, by 2030 there will be no more glaciers in Montana's Glacier National Park.
Save our country's natural resources so we can become more self-sufficient and consider reflective solar lighting for your home ☆.
