Daylighting & Artificial Lighting

Daylighting & Artificial Lighting

A Chalk home makes the most of natural lighting and intelligently uses artificial light to help reduce your energy bills.

Typically, lighting makes up 11% of your energy bill. Poor lighting design, or not using daylight properly will cost you more money.

A Chalk home uses only CFLs and LEDs which are much more efficient and cheaper to operate than incandescent or halogen lights.

Your Chalk designed home will receive maximum daylight, reducing the need for artificial light, thereby cutting your energy use.



Increasing daylight into your home is not simply about adding windows.

A Chalk design will let in sunlight for visual comfort, but limit heat gain thereby maximizing your thermal control.

Thermal control will maximise comfort and reduce your utility costs.

CFL  - Compact Fluorescent Lamps

These light fittings are used in place of any incandescent pendant or globe lights. CFLs use 79% less energy to produce the same light as a similar incandescent bulb. CLF’s have eight times the life expectancy of an incandescent bulb.

LED – Light Emitting Diodes

The lifespan of LED lights is approximately 50,000 hours, that’s almost 50 times the expected lifespan of a standard incandescent bulb, and is 10 times less expensive to run.

CFLs and LEDs are just part of the standard building specification that saves you money whilst improving your home's comfort. Less energy use, less wasted heat from your bulbs and longer replacements times equate to substantial savings to you.
