Are you looking for a way to brighten your home with natural light and save money on your electric bill? Skylights and sun tunnels may be the answer. They also add an attractive element to your home.
Skylights vs. Sun Tunnels: What’s the Difference?
A skylight is a window that mounts directly on the roof to bring in natural light and ventilation to areas that may need it. It can be vented to release hot air and humidity from the home. They are easier to install than a window into enclosed areas of your home, but it is important to carefully consider where you install the skylight. Adding one to a roof that faces south can overheat a room, while north facing skylights release a softer light throughout the day.
A sun tunnel is a tubular skylight which extends from the roof through the ceiling to deliver natural light in any area of your home. With a roof-mounted ultraviolet dome, the sunlight is collected, reflected off the tunnel and guided down into the room. They are perfect for dark areas in the home that cannot utilize standard windows or skylights, such as closets, hallways, and bathrooms.
When it comes to the cost to install your skylight, the price isn’t as expensive as you may think. Most of the cost relates to the installation, not the skylight itself.
Not only does natural lighting affect your mood in many positive ways, but skylights can also save money on your monthly electric bill. Using natural lighting can reduce your need to use lamps, ceiling lights and other artificial lighting.
Installing skylights or sun tunnels during the cooler months of the year can save you money. A skylight can help warm a room due to the exposure to natural sunlight throughout the day. It can also insulate your home from the outside so there is no hot or cold air leaking into your home.
Not only do skylights and sun tunnels help you save money, but they can also add a special design touch to your home. It adds an attractive element that draws attention and can increase the overall value of your home.
