Skylights are a popular addition to homes, as they bring in natural light, can reduce energy costs, and add a touch of style and luxury. Here are a few of the benefits of having skylights on your roof:
- Increased Natural Light: Skylights allow natural light to enter a room, reducing the need for artificial lighting. This can help improve mood and overall health.
- Improved Energy Efficiency: Skylights can reduce energy costs by reducing the need for artificial lighting. New skylights are designed to be energy-efficient and keep out unwanted hot or cold air.
- Ventilation: Some skylights can vent to provide a source of fresh air, especially in bathrooms or kitchens where moisture is common.
- Style and Aesthetics: Skylights can add a touch of style and luxury to any room, and are available in a variety of sizes and types to fit any size or kind of roof.
However, it is important to make sure that skylights are installed properly and do not leak. Leaks can cause water damage to the roof and interior of a home. To avoid leaks, it is recommended to have skylights installed by a certified professional, and to have them inspected regularly for any signs of damage.
Some new skylights also utilize solar power to provide additional benefits, which, if eligible, there may be a solar tax credit available for you in your area. For example, motorized shades can be controlled to allow just the right amount of light into a room, and to prevent overheating or fading of furnishings. Venting solar-powered skylights can also be opened or closed to allow for better ventilation without needing an electrician.
Skylights can offer numerous advantages to homeowners such as enhanced natural light, improved energy efficiency, ventilation and an added touch of style.
