Skylights to Bring in Sunlight

Skylights to Bring in Sunlight

Natural light lifts spirits, makes spaces appear larger, and reveals our world in its true colors. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, it also reduces eyestrain, increases our productivity and lessens electricity consumption. Skylights are available in a variety of sizes that will easily integrate into your ceiling and roofing construction. Introducing more natural light into your home from one or more skylights will make your rooms feel more spacious, expansive and more beautiful. The increase in natural light can help decrease your overall energy costs. Skylights that open up can also provide ventilation in rooms that may not be well-ventilate.

Skylights must be located where the sun can shine on them directly. A skylight foe not produces a useful amount of daylight if it is shaded by adjacent structures or foliage. Similarly, skylights are not worthwhile in areas that have heavy cloud cover for a large period of time. In single-floor buildings, skylights may provide a large fraction of illumination requirements. Sunlight is so intense that skylights can provide virtually any illumination level that is required. There are agencies which specialize in skylights. You can even get them custom fabricated. Skylights are commonly made from glass, glass composites, plastics and plastic composites. All these materials can be treated to reduce light transmission and cooling load, either by adding dyes that absorb light or by adding a reflective surface. The advantages of glass include unlimited life, high light transmission, hardness and rigidity.
