5 Reasons You Should Have a Skylight In Your Home

5 Reasons You Should Have a Skylight In Your Home - skylight contractors - Mares & Dow

You wake every morning to a dark room, with shades drawn over each window to ensure you enjoy plenty of privacy. What if the skylight contractors at Mares & Dow told you there is a way to protect your privacy and welcome the sun into your bedroom every morning that it shines.

As one of the most popular trends for home remodeling projects, installing one or more skylights in your home can brighten up your day even if the sun remains obscured by clouds. Just the glow of each day can produce a more energetic living environment.

Do you have one or more rooms that can use a little more natural light? Take a look at our completed skylight installation projects to learn more about how Mares & Dow can add more value to your home, while at the same time making it much more aesthetically pleasing. 

Let’s review the five benefits of installing one or more skylights in your home.

More Natural Light

Welcoming more natural light into your home brightens the mood of everyone living in or visiting your house. Since many neighborhood construction projects involve building houses close to each other, the only way to invite more sunlight into a home might be to install a skylight at roof level.

It is not just your mental health that benefits from a boost of sunlight. You also benefit from several physical attributes, such as an increase in vitamin D and a much-improved sleep cycle.

Energy Efficient

The more sunlight that enters your home, the less you have to rely on your HVAC system to keep your house warm. This means you reduce your energy consumption, which is a plus for the environment. Less energy consumption also lowers your monthly energy bills. Skylights do not eliminate your dependence on artificial light sources such as task lighting, but when installed at the right spots, they can dramatically reduce your energy usage. 

Enhances Airflow

Although much of the attention on the benefits of skylights focuses on natural light, adding one or more skylights also enhances the flow of air in your home. If you have air circulation issues inside your house, installing a few skylights over several rooms removes some of the warm air and in its place allows cooler air to draw in when you open the lower level windows.

Enlarge the Space Inside Your Home

Allowing more natural light to enter your home creates a kind of illusion that makes a room in your house seem bigger. If you have to deal with limited space in one or more rooms, consider installing a skylight to expand the amount of space you have to work, sleep, or entertain.

Increase in Home Value

Installing one or more skylights increases the visual appeal of the interior, as well as delivers several tangible financial benefits. We already discussed saving money on energy bills, but did you know that skylights also increase the value of houses? The increase in value is because of improved curb appeal and a functional improvement by letting more natural light into your home.

Working with an experienced team of residential general contractors can help you to create a more energetic ambiance, without having to dig deep into your pockets.
