When it comes to bringing natural light into your home or workspace, skylights have long been the go-to choice.

They provide an excellent solution for illuminating interiors with sunlight, reducing energy consumption, and creating a bright, inviting atmosphere.

However, there are situations where installing a traditional skylight may not be feasible or desirable.

That’s where Redilight comes into play as an innovative alternative.

What is a Skylight?

Before we delve into Redilight, let’s briefly explore what a skylight is.

A skylight is a window or tunnel installed in the roof of a building, designed to admit natural light into interior spaces.

It typically consists of a transparent or translucent glazing material and is positioned in such a way that it captures sunlight and directs it into the room below.

The Limitations of Traditional Skylights

While skylights offer numerous benefits, such as reducing electricity costs, improving mood and productivity, and enhancing the aesthetic appeal of a space, they do come with certain limitations:

  1. Installation Complexity

Installing a traditional skylight can be a complex and costly endeavor. It often involves cutting a hole in the roof, which, if not done correctly, can lead to leaks and structural issues.

  1. Weather Dependence

Skylights are highly dependent on weather conditions. They can lead to excessive heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter, potentially impacting energy efficiency.

  1. Maintenance Challenges

Traditional skylights require periodic cleaning, and they may accumulate dirt and debris over time, reducing the amount of light they can transmit.

Introducing Redilight: A Skylight Alternative

Redilight offers a brilliant solution for those situations where installing a traditional skylight is not feasible or desirable. Here’s how it works and why it’s a game-changer:

What Is Redilight?

Redilight is an advanced solar powered lighting system that uses innovative solar-powered LED technology to mimic the effects of the outdoor conditions.

It consists of a series of energy-efficient LED light fittings and a solar panel that captures sunlight from your rooftop. These lights are installed discreetly in or on your ceiling, providing a similar ambiance to what you’d get with a skylight.

The Benefits of Redilight Over Skylights

When considering Redilight as an alternative to traditional skylights, you’ll discover a range of advantages:

  1. Minimal Roof Penetration

Unlike skylights, Redilight doesn’t require a large roof penetration. Redilight only requires a small 10mm hole for the solar panel cable to be fed through, this is then covered by a roof dektite to seal the hole (on metal roof).

This means no risk of leaks, structural damage, or costly installation. View our handy Redilight installation videos here.

  1. Energy Efficiency

Redilight’s LED solar panels are highly energy-efficient, reducing your electricity consumption. You can enjoy the benefits of free light without the weather-dependent drawbacks.

  1. Minimal Maintenance

Maintaining Redilight is a breeze. The solar panels are easy to clean and maintain, ensuring a consistent and pleasant lighting experience.

  1. Customisable Lighting

Redilight allows you to dim the light intensity and choose your colour temperature before installation, creating the perfect ambiance for your space, whether it’s a cozy living room or a productive home office.

  1. Year-Round Performance

Redilight’s performance remains brilliant year-round, often outperforming traditional skylights

Redilight – Your Skylight Alternative

While traditional skylights have their merits, they are not always the best solution for every situation. When you can’t install a skylight or prefer to avoid roof penetrations, Redilight steps in as a smart, energy-efficient, and cost-effective alternative.

Say goodbye to worries about leaks and maintenance, and embrace the brilliance of Redilight in illuminating your living or workspaces with natural-looking light.
