The benefits of Skylights and Natural light in your home

There are many benefits to having skylights and solar tubes installed in your home. High quality, energy efficient skylights allow natural sunlight to enter your home, reducing your lighting and utility bill throughout the year. Sun tunnels, or solar tubes, can be installed in dark areas such as laundry, mud rooms, hallways and other areas that do not have any windows nearby to allow in sunlight. Having a vented skylight can allow warm air to escape during hot summer months and help with air circulation within your home. Installing a skylight in your bathroom can also allow for privacy without having to sacrifice natural light from lighting up the room. Both skylights and solar tubes are an important accessory in your home if your are trying to make your home a green home or simply trying to cut down on utility and heating/cooling costs throughout the year.

How long do installed skylights last for on your home?

Most skylights are manufactured to last 15-20 years. There are some skylights that are manufactured from acrylic material which tends to break down faster than tempered glass. That is another key reason why we chose to use Velux brand skylights. They are manufactured using tempered glass to ensure the longevity of the skylight itself. It is always a good idea to check on your skylights periodically, especially when you are inspecting your roof. Often times, skylights are improperly installed at the time of the roof installation which causes them to fail much quicker than the roof shingles. If you feel that your skylights have failed and are leaking, give us a call to examine them.
