We have had the opportunity to do our fair share of roofing projects here in Albany and surrounding area. We have been finding that more people are considering installing skylights as part of their homes to core for a multitude of reasons.
Skylights are a great way to reduce your power consumption and your overall utility bill. There are a great source of natural light and an excellent alternative to using electricity either for your home or your place of business. Natural light is far more inviting than fluorescent lights and will go along way to brighten up your home.
With more homes being designed to have an open concept, the idea of enhancing your lighting to bring natural light and sunshine is the most effective way to transform any space in your house.
Skylights are cost-effective and able to help you reduce your reliance on the electric company which will naturally lower your electric bill. Sometimes there are ways for you to qualify for tax benefits. The best type of skylight is what is called a ventilating skylight which will help to improve the condition of your air in your home especially during the summer months where it gets hot towards your ceilings.
This concept of ventilation can be accomplished by using electrically powered skylights which will help to introduce fresh air in your home and provide a healthy space where warm air is creating more balance in your home.
This is one not many people think about. It is the idea of more privacy by having skylights. If the goal is to have more lighting in your home you would normally have to add more windows which reduces your amount of privacy. Skylights allow you to add light vertically without sacrificing privacy.
