FAQs – Skylights

Does heat come through a skylight?

Some heat may want to come through the skylight because heat and light are directly related. CALIDADs experience indicates there is no appreciable Heat Gain or Loss in normal circumstances. In extreme climates, CALIDAD can provide an opal or double glazed dome to meet BCA requirements.

How much extra light will a skylight give me?

There is no standard answer because of the variables that affect the performance of any skylight, such as the time of year, time of day, throat size, length of shaft, dome orientation on the roof, room size, wall colours and general décor. Plus general weather & ambient light conditions always affect the end result.

What Warranty will my skylight have?

This depends on the particular model purchased. For warranty information, see our catalogue.

What is the best shape/size for a Skylight?

Round skylights provide more light per unit of area, and one of our representatives can recommend the right size skylight to give the best light for the area of concern in your home. A personal preference for a square ceiling from can be achieved by using a conversion box.

How important is the skylight duct?

Very important as it transmits the outside light into your room. Key factors are the open area of the tubing, and that the tubing should be “shiny” and, in the case of a flexible tube, quite taunt. The tubing, like the shape and size of a skylight is a major factor in transmitting the most efficient light.
