6 Things to Consider When Buying A Solar Skylight Alternative

Are you considering a solar skylight alternative? These are the things you need to consider to ensure you are making the right choice for your needs.

Redilight’s vast experience with manufacturing, installing and servicing solar skylight alternatives means we have learned a thing or two about the potential pitfalls that can face home owners.

Read on to discover how you can avoid inferior products, dodgy warranties and safety concerns that might affect your decision-making process when purchasing a solar skylight alternative.

But first a quick spoiler alert – Redilight excels in every aspect of providing cost-effective, solar-powered lighting for your home.

1. Performance Matters – Understanding the right light for your needs.

The primary consideration when installing a solar powered skylight alternative is will it deliver the level of lighting you need?

You should be wary of companies that do not provide the detailed information you need to compare their products with their competitors to make the right choice in your home.

At Redilight, we provide you with the tools and assistance to make an informed choice with lighting any space in your home – including our easy-reference lighting guides across our wide range of Skyfixtures.

3. Adaptability and installation – will it grow with your family and needs?

Investing in your home lighting raises plenty of questions – some of which you may not know the answer to right away.

Perhaps you are unsure if a solar skylight alternative is the right choice for all your problem areas in the home, or maybe you want to build your system in stages in line with your budget.

At Redilight, we often find that following an initial installation our customers want to install even more of our Skyfixtures in other areas of their home.

Thankfully Redilight installation kits make this process simple and can be easily expanded by linking additional Skyfixtures to the existing solar panel or upgrading the existing solar panel to cater for extra lights.

The easy-to-install Redilight system means that unlike our competitors this can be achieved for a fraction of the cost of a full installation.

We can even add smart options like our remote control or day-night kits after the initial installation.

4. Safety certifications – protecting your home and family

When it comes to electricity – even if it is extra low voltage – safety should always be one of your concerns.

Not all solar skylight alternatives and LED lighting are designed to the same standards resulting in vast differences in the safety of their installation and operation.

At Redilight, we have worked rigorously with our designers and independent authorities to ensure our products are of the highest possible safety standards – and we have the certifications to prove it.

Our range of solar skylight alternatives all boast IC4 Certifications that ensure it can be safely installed with the existing insulation in your roof space. And our UL Listing means our products meet the highest independent safety standards around the world.

5. Warranties Matter – be sure to read the fine print.

When you invest in your home lighting you want to be assured that it will continue to perform for years on end.

Homeowners should be wary of products with limited, short-term warranties or companies that do not prominently provide their warranty information on their websites and marketing materials.

At Redilight, we stand behind our solar skylight alternative with a 7 year Skyfixture warranty that in today’s market simply cannot be matched by any of our competitors.

Further, Redilight also delivers peace of mind with our local after-sales service to promptly address any concerns or issues that may rise from your installation.

6. Read customer reviews – trust what others have to say.

When choosing your solar skylight alternative, it is important to learn from those that have done it before.

Online review websites provide a wealth of information to help you with your investment – with people just like you cutting through the marketing hype and technical jargon.

At Redilight, we are proud of the high-quality reviews our products and installations regularly receive from our satisfied customers.

We advise homeowners considering installing a solar skylight alternative to be wary of products and companies that do not publish customer reviews. Ask yourself, ‘what are they hiding?’

  • Brendan Barnes says:

    Would the solar light still work all day if the solar panel was mounted on a 25 degree East facing roof dawn till dusk?

    • Joel Mulvenney says:

      Hi Brendan. Yes the light will still work if the panel is mounted on the Eastern roof. You will just get better light performance in the morning and slightly less in the afternoon. Please phone us on 1300 214 981 if you have any more questions.
