Skylights and Their Benefit to the Environment

Skylights are widely used in designing daylighting for residential and commercial buildings. It provides homeowners with healthier, more enjoyable, and more attractive living spaces. The installation and practical use of skylights can provide a number of environmental benefits. 

The use of natural light in buildings is a practical way to provide an environment that is more appealing to most. In industrial settings, the use of natural light has been shown to increase production and provide a workplace that is perceived as much more positive and much more comfortable for those working in it. This promotes a reduction in the use of electricity and helps the environment in that way as well as helping the structure owner save some money!

Professional skylight installation can be a significant contributing factor in the reduction of heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment used. The skylights can be open to allow the hot air that naturally accumulates in the upper area of rooms to escape and cooler exterior air to enter.

Natural light is a big selling point for homebuyers as well. Installing Energy Star-qualified, no-leak skylights can increase the home’s efficiency and appeal to potential buyers in the future.
