It requires no specialist tools or trade skills. Simply mount the solar collector on the roof, cut out the templated hole in the ceiling plaster, connect the cable and you’re done! Unlike a traditional skylight, room temperature is not compromised by a shaft breaking the integrity of insulation against external conditions, reducing heat transfer. This makes illume more energy efficient adding to utility cost savings and less emissions. Also there is no need to regularly clean as illume removes common issues experienced with skylights such as mould, bugs and dust.
