Skylights are a wonderful addition to any home. They provide a multitude of benefits for the homes that they are installed on. If you are interested in learning more about why so many homeowners opt to install skylights into their homes, take a look at our blog to explore the benefits!

Energy Efficiency

Skylights are a great way to reduce your home’s energy consumption, as they reduce the need for electricity and artificial lights. If you are allowing more natural light into your home during the day, you won’t need to use artificial lights as often, reducing your home’s energy use and lowering your bills!

Reduction of Mildew and Mold

Natural lighting is important for reducing the amount of harmful organisms in your home! Sunlight is a natural disinfectant, meaning if you suffer from any respiratory illnesses, skylights can help reduce the organisms in your home and reduce symptoms by cutting down on bacterial growth.

Vitamin D Consumption

Increasing the natural sunlight in your home can help increase your vitamin B and D1 intake, which can help reduce symptoms of seasonal depression, and improve your overall health as well.

Improved Workplace Performance

Studies have shown that increasing the natural light in a work space can help increase the productivity of workers. Help yourself be more productive in your home office by installing a skylight!

Increased Curb Appeal

Installing a skylight is a great way to increase your home’s curb appeal. Skylights look fantastic and they can increase your home’s value.

Extending Space

Skylights are also a wonderful way to increase your home’s space, or at least make it feel like it’s larger! Skylights can help make your rooms feel larger by expanding the space vertically. Even if you don’t have more room to use, simply installing the skylight will make your space feel larger! Consider this benefit especially useful in crowded spaces like the kitchen.

Solar Heating/Ventilation

Not only do skylights help reduce the energy use from your lights by flooding your home with natural light, skylights can also increase your home’s heat gain from solar energy. On sunny days, the heat from the sun will help warm your home.  In addition to the solar heat gain your skylight will provide, if you opt for a skylight that opens and closes, you can ventilate your home on particularly hot, sunny days.
