3 Advantages For Adding A Skylight To Your Property
Why A Skylight Is Not Just For Increasing Natural Light
Skylights can be the simplest and cheapest way to convert a dingy and dark room into a usable space filled with natural light. The cost of skylights ranges from between £70 to £130. The installation cost starts at £800. These glazed units are fixed high on your roof, letting in as much light into a room as possible.
Aside from the apparent improvement in natural light, here are three advantages to installing a skylight in your home.
· Fresh air and better ventilation – Having a well-ventilated home can help remove indoor pollutants, moisture, cooking odours, and general household smells. Inadequate ventilation can be detrimental to your health, causing allergies, asthma, and headaches. Skylight ventilation provides added airflow by allowing the hot stale air that rises to the ceiling to escape through the open window. It also allows fresh, clean air to replace it.
· Saving on energy costs – Skylights are energy efficient all year round, reducing your energy bills. There are a variety of different manufacturing technologies used to make them as efficient as possible. Reducing the impact of winter heat loss and summer heat gain can be achieved through heat-absorbing tints, low-emissivity (Low-E) coatings and insulated glazing. Having more natural light in your home means less artificial light needed to brighten your rooms. The reduction in energy use will decrease your Co2 emissions.
· Increase in resale value – A skylight can dramatically increase the value of your property because it enhances the aesthetics and energy efficiency of your home. Potential buyers find homes that have undergone efficiency and environmentally sound improvements more appealing.
So whether you a looking to add value to your property, improve your living space or become more eco-conscious, skylights can revolutionise a room. Adding natural light is a commodity, and living in a brighter house will enhance your happiness.
