As the weather gets warmer, it seems like the sun only shines brighter. Spring is the best time of the year to open your windows, let in some fresh air, and watch the flowers bloom. One of the best ways to enjoy the views of the outdoors is a skylight. You get to enjoy the sunlight during the day and watch the stars at night. Skylights are most common in beach towns and vacation homes, but with Romero Roofing and Siding, we help bring that elegance and vacation feel to your home every day with a skylight installation. Skylights are not only great visual appeal, but they also provide numerous benefits to you and your home.
The most obvious benefit of a skylight is that it is one of the best natural light sources. The addition of natural light can liven any room and provide a balance of light to parts of your room that windows can’t always reach. The natural light from above delivers added depth to your room and a new aesthetic.
You probably know that heat rises. So on those warm spring days, the best way to quickly ventilate your home and cool things down is by opening up your skylight. This allows fresh air to circulate in your home and excess heat to escape. The ventilation is also great in bathrooms to help moisture and steam escape, or in kitchens to remove any cooking odors or smoke.
Natural light sources mean less need for electric lights. Ventilation means less need for air conditioning. A skylight installation can help reduce your need for electricity and HVAC expenses, resulting in energy savings on your utility bills.
Increased Resale Value
When it comes time to sell your home, a skylight can help to increase the resale value. Skylights provide a feeling of elegance and create a bright and attractive atmosphere that will increase the price that you can get in return.
A skylight can also be a source of solar heat for your home in the winter. The sunlight shining into your home will provide additional heat to a room, allowing you to set your thermostat a little lower.
Sunlight is a proven way to help elevate your mood. Skylights provide great natural sunlight to increase your vitamin B and D levels. Vented models are also great for improving the air quality in your home to make sure you are breathing in clean air. A skylight allows moisture to escape your home, preventing mold and fungus growth as well.
If you live in a congested area, opening your windows to let in the light or fresh air can also allow passersby to see into your home. A skylight gives you natural light while you maintain your privacy and do not have to worry about anybody peering through your window.
