Practicing sustainable lifestyles is a part of living. This lifestyle would be impossible without skylights.

Adding skylights to a home is a long-term investment that pays off. Over three times more light is emitted by a skylight than by a vertical window of the same size. Because of this, skylights save you money on heating and cooling, improve the health and cleanliness of your home, and reduce the amount of energy you use in the process.

Energy Efficiency

Using skylights to heat and cool your home is a great way to save money on your energy bills. Skylights can be a great way to naturally add warmth to a room during the colder months. Because skylights let in direct sunlight, leaving your skylight curtains open is a great way to warm up a space. If the sun is shining and it’s cold outside, the heat from the sun’s rays entering your home through your skylight will help warm it up. This will save you money in both seasons and make your home more environmentally friendly.

Nonrenewable Resources Can Be Avoided By Using Natural Daylighting

Our internal spaces can benefit from natural light, which enters through windows and skylights, at a low cost.

Increase your home’s sustainability by making use of natural light. You’ll save money and reduce your carbon footprint if you don’t have to rely on energy-intensive cooling and heating equipment. Using skylights will allow you to provide more natural light in specific sections of your home and reduce the need to use artificial lighting. 

Mold And Mildew Are Eliminated

Mold and mildew thrive in places where there are no windows.

Mold and mildew are kept at bay by the natural antifungal and antibacterial properties of skylights. Also, they raise the temperature, which lowers the amount of mold-friendly moisture in the environment. Skylights can save money by preventing mold and mildew from forming in the first place, which can cost up to $200 for a single ceiling when getting it professionally removed. 

The Sky And The Surrounding Trees Can Be Seen Through Skylights

If we’ve learned anything in the last two years, it’s that we have a strong affinity for nature. Each and every day, you can have the sensation of being connected to the outside world when you have skylights. Skylights can provide a touch of nature for everyday wellbeing in a variety of ways, including providing views of the sky, stars, and treetops as well as creating a mild wind within.

Skylights Can Be Opened To Allow For Fresh Airflow, Which Contributes To A Healthier Home

People spend 90% of their time indoors, and because buildings are built under strict energy regulations, the air inside our homes can be five times more toxic than the air outdoors. Skylights can be regulated remotely to produce natural ventilation as part of a healthy home design.
