Sun Solutions: Your Skylight Experts
You can really feel the difference when you walk into a room filled with sunlight. Skylights, roof windows and Sun Tunnels have a dramatic effect on living spaces. Not only do they improve your quality of life, they add value to your home!
Skylights allow you to take advantage of outdoor beauty and energy savings in almost any room in your home. They are great for bathrooms, hallways, laundry rooms, and even walk-in closets.
Six Great Reasons to Install Skylights
Skylights cut down on the earth’s emissions and the need for electric lighting naturally. Using daylight not only reduces energy costs and consumption, but also reduces the demand for unsustainable power that is currently challenging the health of the world’s environment.
- Solar energy is an unlimited resource.
- Solar energy does not produce harmful emissions or require transportation or pipelines like electric energy does.
- Solar water heating systems installed in the U.S. help reduce our household energy consumption, and the nation’s reliance on toxic fossil fuels.
Most of us are looking for homes with a lot of light, because we require two-to-three times more light to see by age 60 as we did in our twenties. Skylights help balance the light in the room, reducing glare and transforming living areas in more open, safer spaces.
With skylights, you will save money through lower energy bills. You also may have potential tax advantages and credits by installing ENERGY STAR® qualified products.
High quality, energy efficient skylights are an important part of building today’s green homes. Skylights, roof windows and Sun Tunnels reduce lighting costs and energy consumptions. Venting skylights minimize the need for air conditions and fans during warmer months.
An electric venting skylight will open to produce a “passive air conditioner.” Through the chimney or exhaust effect they create, the warm air is drawn up through the venting skylight, providing a cooling effect and fresh air throughout the house.
Homes are being built closer to one another and the balance of providing sufficient natural light and privacy has become an issue. That’s why 65 percent of homebuyers request light from above through skylights in their bathroom, a room where privacy and light is of the utmost importance.
Add Life To Small Spaces
While conventional incandescent bulbs create an unnatural yellow glow, Sun Tunnel skylights bring bright, white, healthy daylight into rooms where traditional skylights are not an option. The reflective property of tubular skylights also reduces your HVAC load by utilizing the natural power of the sun to bring passive light, light without the heat emitted by electrical sources.
