Now that the long British winter is finally coming to an end, many of us are craving the sunlight! A lack of natural light can have significant effects on our health, both emotional and physical. Having access to natural daylight when indoors – at home or in the office– can even have a big impact on the way we feel and how effectively we work. Solar tubes like Solarspot enable you to bring daylight into even the darkest room, providing the benefits of natural light in an affordable and energy-efficient way.
When a room lacks sufficient natural lighting, we rely on electrical light to compensate, resulting in a range of negative symptoms and outcomes, such as:
- an increase in energy bills
- a feeling of gloominess or depression
- increased likelihood of illness
- tiredness and fatigue
- a difficulty in telling the time of day
- anxiety or panic
- Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)
- headaches and poor concentration
- poor vision
Natural sunlight is so important for providing vitamin D during the winter months, or whenever the weather is dull and dark. Vitamin D is an essential vitamin which we need to stay healthy, helping the body to fight off illness and stave off depression. Brightening up dark areas of your home or office with sun tunnels can be a practical and affordable method of increasing the amount of daylight exposure you receive each day. Solarspot sun tubes work by filtering and reflecting natural light down through the roof of the building into individual rooms, providing up to 99.7% reflectivity, making them the most efficient solar tube in the world.
Solarspot is a high-performance tubular daylighting system which delivers the maximum amount of daylight possible, even on gloomy British wintry days. The effects of natural light in your workplace or home are immeasurable – bringing psychological and health benefits such as:
- alleviating depression and lifting mood
- improving the body’s ability to fight off ailments
- exposure to vitamin D which enables the body to absorb other vitamins and minerals
- decreasing symptoms of anxiety
- improving energy levels
- improving sleep
- increasing concentration and productivity
- reducing energy bills
- improving visibility
