Skylights, roof windows and sun tunnels let the sun into your home. Skylights are windows in the roof that bring a bit of blue sky into your home. New skylights in your home will provide the interior rooms with the warmth and brightness of natural daylight making your space feel larger and brighter. Skylight’s are beneficial in so many ways they cut down on the earth’s emissions and the need for electric lighting naturally. When installed properly, they don’t let water in. Skylights are installed in a metal frame with flashing around them. Skylight options have come a long way. Today we have skylights that have blinds built in with a remote control, so you can con- when you don’t.
Skylights also have the potential to cause drafts, making a room uncomfortable. They can leak in rainy weather. While they can reduce the amount of energy you might use for artificial light inside your home, they can let in extra, unwanted heat that will make your air conditioner work harder in the summer. In the winter they can allow precious heat to escape. That is why you need to have a professional that understands the whole installation process to make sure the proper techniques are being used.
