Regular windows aren't always best. Depending on where they are in your home, they may not do a good job of lighting rooms. If you want to let as much light as possible get into a room, the best option is a roof window. They act almost as a light fitting would, and get more sunlight than a normal window.
The light that they let in is natural. So, of course, you don't have to pay for it. If you can light a room for longer without needing to actually put the lights on, your energy bills will drop. Using less electricity, you'll also be more green, doing your bit to reduce emissions into the environment.
Not only do you get the most of natural light with a roof window, you also get more ventilation. Opening your roof window allows you to cool your whole house in the warmer summer months. You get to enjoy the warmth of the sunlight, without making your home like a greenhouse. You could even get a tan without leaving your house!
Another advantage you'll get with a roof window is that of added privacy. Unless you have neighbours very dedicated to being nosy, it's very unlikely anyone will be able to see in. So you won't need to worry about ever covering your window up so people can't see in.
At Solway Slate and Tile we supply Ubbink and Roto Roof Windows for you to choose from.
