One of the greatest benefits of putting a skylight in your home is the decreased use of energy and electricity in lighting. Electric lighting for buildings consumes 15% of all energy usage and is a significant cost to both individuals and the environment.
Using a skylight makes your home more energy efficient and environmentally friendly, which not only saves you money, but also makes your home more striking to buyers if you’re planning to sell in the future. Sun tunnel skylights provide a natural and sustainable alternative to conventional lighting.
Any interior designer knows that lighting can make or break a good space. Installing a tubular skylight not only helps you to tie together the natural daylight to illuminate your home, it also helps to efficiently disperse the light for a bright, warm and welcoming atmosphere that pervades each corner of the room.
There are scientific studies that show an increase in the benefits of natural sunlight on health and wellbeing. Suitable daylight reduces eyestrain while reading or working on a computer, and effectively stimulates the human visual system. If truth be told, humans have an inherent need for natural sunlight, and skylights allow you to experience the gentle fluctuations in sunlight that stimulates the human circadian system, controlling sleep and wakefulness.
Studies have shown that people who are regularly exposed to sunlight are more optimistic, sleep better at night and have a higher sense of health and well-being.
Getting a good dose of daylight can boost your mental function and memory by 10-25%, according to most studies conducted. In a range of studies, students were found to perform around 20% better on their tests after a year in rooms with higher levels of daylight. Natural sunlight stimulates your mind, boosting alertness, concentration and focus on the tasks at hand.
With the effective use of skylights, you can reduce your energy bill by 15-40% savings that can really make a difference to your family budget. Tubular skylights allow you to lower costs by reducing electricity use, as well as saving on light fixtures and bulbs that break and regularly need replacement. Sky lighting is by far the more environmentally and pocket friendly option.
Skylights not only bring beauty and radiance to your home, but a natural sense of wellbeing and productivity, while helping you save your money and the environment. Visit Sundowners Skylight and become part of an eco friendly family.
