At MARVA, we bet on natural light and we always strive to make the most of natural light in our constructions and renovations projects. This inspiration probably comes from Moraira’s breath-taking panorama, its Mediterranean atmosphere or the 300 days of sunshine per year that offers our beautiful Alicante region.
The light that emanates from the sun is special in every respect: it highlights colors and brings us well-being. Scientific studies demonstrate that people who are exposed frequently to natural light are more productive at work and more positive in their daily life.
Despite the fact that we always try to take advantage of natural light and that we promote its advantages, in certain occasions it is impossible and we have to turn to artificial elements like solar tubes of natural lights.
It is a very high quality solution and accessible to all budgets. It allows natural light to enter indoor spaces whose traditional windows cannot fulfill their function. We rely in Solatube, leader on the market of natural illumination. With this material it is possible to build light tunnels which will allow your home to enjoy a natural light. The installation is very easy and fast.
With this system we take care of the environment and we reduce our electricity consumption up to 40%, an important element considering the increase of the electricity prices.
If you want to reduce your electricity bill, start by:
– Making the most of the natural light: take advantage of your windows, shutters and curtains to enjoy daylight to the full.
– Keep your artificial light consumption under control: Switch the light off when you leave a room and check the watts of every socket.
-Maintain a reasonable level of illumination: Make sure the lightbulbs are clean and save money using a focal light. Don’t illuminate the whole room if not necessary, for example for a reading corner.
-The windows: if you are about to build or to renovate a house, make sure that the orientation, size and protection of the windows are ideal to make the most of natural light.
– Interior finishing: Light colors wall help reducing the need for artificial light and the materials (transparent or translucent) and distribution of the walls will highly influence the natural illumination of the rooms.
Making the most of natural light is our field of expertise. Ask us for some advice, without any commitments 😉
