Good reasons to get one installed:
- Light in Dark Places
Skylights allow light into interior places that can’t otherwise get light. For example, the bathroom in the middle of your house that has no window.
- Aesthetically Pleasing A skylight provides a beautiful window to the sky and can change the entire atmosphere of your room.
- Fresh Air
A venting skylight can provide fresh air to a room – again, like a bathroom – that doesn’t get much fresh air. They can help with natural cooling through venting in summer months or in places that stay warm all year round.---It is important to make sure if you opt for a venting skylight that you can reach it easily. Otherwise, many people don’t bother and then the venting function goes to waste.
- Indirect Solar Light
Skylights installed in the proper place in your home can provide indirect solar energy. A skylight on the northern side of your house can provide cool, indirect sunlight. A skylight on the southern side can provide indirect solar heat in the winter. However, it must be shaded in summer to prevent overheating. East and west placed skylights provide either morning or afternoon heat.
