Skylights are considered a luxury item and they bring comfort to a home. They allow natural sunlight to enter the home which provides the homeowner with a healthier, more enjoyable and more attractive living space.
The natural light that enters the home will heat your home during the colder seasons reducing your energy bill. It will also reduce lighting cost during the daytime.
There are rooms in a house that can be damp and cause mildew and mold build up such as a bathroom or a basement. Natural sunlight can reduce the dampness. Sunlight is considered to be one of the best natural disinfectants.
Good health is another benefit you gain from skylights. The natural light that a skylight provides is prone to reduce stress and anxiety and helps our bodies to produce vitamin D. Natural light can also help in reducing blood pressure. Bright lighting can stimulate the mind, where as dim lighting can cause one to feel sluggish and drowsy. Natural light can help us to recover faster from illness.
Skylights offer privacy. Because they are located on the roof, you can take advantage of the natural sunlight without giving up on privacy.
