There are multiple ways in which we can save energy in our homes and offices, from something as simple as switching lights and televisions off to insulating cavity walls and the loft. Measures such as draught-proofing, having proper insulation on your hot water tank, and installing double glazing can save you a lot of money in the long term.
Buying energy-efficient appliances will save a large amount of electricity and switching from standard light bulbs to energy-efficient bulbs will also help to reduce your carbon footprint. You can also buy Velux skylights, roof windows, & sun tunnels online via JR Store.

Lighting our homes and office buildings is something we all need to do and something we just take for granted. Switch the light on and hey presto you have light. By installing skylights, you can make full use of nature’s free gift of light.
The use of skylights in rooms such as offices and in the home, the kitchen, bathroom, and hall will decrease your electricity consumption and also allow you to have natural daylight ‘streaming in’.
The position of your home/office and how you wish to make use of daylighting will influence how many and where you will position the skylights. Modern roof lights and skylights are very energy efficient and are leak and drought-proof.
You can have skylights that open to allow ventilation and this can help prevent condensation build-up. Skylights come in a variety of shapes and sizes and are made from different materials. Glass is the most common and if you are choosing glass, always make sure it is tempered or laminated.
