Rooflights have been around for many years and can bring light, spaciousness and a better ambience into a room. However, they can also let in lots of cold air along with all that extra natural light, making them bad for saving energy. In the modern day home where everyone is trying to save energy and reduce electricity and gas usage, this is a major flaw in their design. It’s advisable to get old rooflights replaced to overcome this problem.
If you have a rooflight that is old and ill fitting, then it might even let in rainwater and start to leak. You should look to get this replaced as soon as possible. Replacing an old rooflight will be one of the best decisions you can make, allowing you to have a better quality of light – and to reduce your carbon footprint as you reduce your reliance on electricity and central heating.
