Ciralight's Smart Skylights take daylighting to a new level. Most skylight solutions are passive in nature meaning they have reduced effectiveness based on various sun angles throughout the day which creates uneven lighting, hot spots and glare in the building interior.
The ideal daylighting system does not contribute unwanted heat gain and will help to minimize heat loss in winter. Ciralight products lower heating and cooling loads plus maximize efficiency of internally load-dominated air conditioned buildings.
LaFontaine Chevrolet, well known for its environmentally friendly dealerships, selected the Ciralight Smart Skylights to be part of its new showroom. The active skylights provided a way to provide abundant light at no cost. Says Jason Bloom, of Bloom Engineering, who helped to specify in the lights, the Ciralights offered us a way to provide a balanced level of lighting with little or no heat gain or glare for more hours per day than any of the alternatives. Even though they are only providing sunlight, they appear almost like a strong electric light. They are a subtle reinforcement to LaFontaine’s strong commitment to energy conservation.
