The Benefits of a Professionally Installed Sky Light
A skylight is a fixed window made of tempered glass that’s located on a roof to let in natural daylight and improve ventilation. There are many ways that homeowners can benefit from installing a skylight:
● Natural Light
Natural light is a great selling factor when presenting your home to homebuyers, and also makes for relaxing living. Natural sunlight has been proven to improve your mood and also saves you the cost of heating in the winter.
● Increased Home Value
Skylights provide a natural light source and aesthetic impact that, when paired together, make for a great selling feature when looking to sell your home.
● Provide Ventilation
Skylight improves ventilation by letting warm air out and cool air in. When skylights are opened, they create an airflow that can improve the ventilation of your attic and home as a whole.
● Vitamin D
Natural light comes with a lot of health benefits. When the skin is exposed to natural light, it absorbs vitamin D; a nutrient with many health impacts of its own. Vitamin D helps to reduce the risk of heart disease and is great for your body in general.
● Improved sleep
Exposure to natural light is believed to have positive effects on one’s sleep schedule. In fact, a 2014 study by the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine found that individuals exposed to natural light throughout the day sleep better in the evening.
● Reduced Heating Costs
Due to the fact that skylights bring in natural light, they reduce the need for heating. This results in lower heating costs for a homeowner.
● Reduced Electrical Bills
Skylights reduce the need to use electricity to heat or air condition your home. The tool’s ventilation capabilities maintain airflow that keeps warm air out, and cool air in.
Work With Experienced Skylight Installers
An improperly installed skylight can damage your roof and home, increase energy costs, and cause water damage and mould. This is why it’s important to hire professionals like Professional Roofers.
An improperly installed skylight can result in:
Increased Energy Costs: A properly installed skylight will help to improve the ventilation of your home, but a poorly installed one can actually impair this ventilation and hike up your energy bills.
Wear & Tear: Hire a professional to install your skylight to ensure the materials and equipment are high quality and won’t wear and tear on you.
Repair: Repairing or even replacing your skylight are added costs that can arise if your skylight is not installed by an expert to begin.
Water damage: Skylights are meant to let out the warm air to reduce the chances of moisture and the subsequent risk of damage and mould. If not working properly, your skylight won’t be able to let out this warm air, which puts your attic at risk.
