Skylights resemble a window but are placed in the roof of a home.
This allows sunlight to come through overhead. They enhance the aesthetics of a house and provide numerous benefits, including health benefits and cost reduction.
The sunlight coming through skylights can create a calming and relaxing environment and reduce energy costs. The increased natural lighting reduces the need for the use of artificial lights in a home, leading to lower electricity costs. This is a great way to reduce energy costs without having to put in too much effort. Statistically, after installing a skylight, energy cost reductions average as much as a ten percent decrease.
In regards to health benefits, natural lighting can lift your mood and even make you feel healthier. Sunlight acts as a natural disinfectant, killing mold, mildew and bacteria. With a skylight, you can may be able to breathe easier in your own home and have less sick days. You can even get your doctor-recommended 20 minutes of sunlight per day without having to go outside.
