It’s easy for people to overlook the value of skylights. They’re on the ceiling, not in your direct line-of-sight like a window, so we often forget that they’re even there. A good skylight can really transform the room, though.
Any homeowner who has invested in one can tell you that it’s been a great addition to their life.
And we want to share those reasons with you! This is the first of a three-part series to educate you on the many ways in which Wasco skylights can improve your home and your life.
So let’s dive in – here are a few ways in which skylights can make your life much more enjoyable.
Dynamic Natural Lighting
Normal windows are great but they simply can’t provide the same amount of natural light that a Wasco Skylight can. Even on an overcast day, these skylights will help to maximize the amount of light coming into your home. Simply draw the blinds back and let the light in.
With sun pouring in from the roof, your room will be soaked in warm, natural lighting. You’ll be amazed at how the colors of your walls, tiles, and furniture truly pop under some well-balanced light.
Save Money on Electricity
We all love air-conditioning, but the costs add up quite quickly. A skylight is a fantastic alternative to A/C, providing you with natural fresh air whenever you want it. While A/C units are far from eco-friendly, a skylight is a great energy efficient way to cool your house.
One thing that many people don’t realize is that skylights actually drag warm air outwards as they bring cool air in. Because heat tends to rise upwards, your Wasco Skylight will quickly replace it with cooler air. This air is then evenly distributed downward, helping you to circulate a fresh breeze through the entire floor or your home.
Open Up Some Space
Thinking about a renovation? You may want to consider investing in a skylight! The problem with regular old windows is that they take up a lot of wall space. This means less room for shelves, cabinets, and appliances.
With a skylight, you can save your wall space for other things. It will ultimately help you to reduce clutter and be more organized. With more shelf space, you’ll find yourself transforming into the neat and tidy person you always knew you could be.
Air Out Your Environment
You’d be shocked at how much dust, lint, and other grimy material accumulates in your home every day. Even if you vacuum and mop obsessively, there’s no way that anyone can possibly get to everything. Dirt piles up in cracks, grease gathers behind the stove and dust gathers along the edges of the ceiling. In time, this stuff can be harmful to you and your family.
If fact, the Environmental Protection Agency has found that we spend 90% of our time indoors and indoor concentrations of some pollutants are up to 5 times higher than they are outdoors! These indoor pollutants can affect your health, causing irritation, headaches, and respiratory disease.
Wasco Skylights can help you to tackle this problem – by airing out your home and facilitating healthy air circulation. Not only will you be able to air out nasty smells and fumes, but you and your children will be much healthier.
There’s no better way to provide your family with the clean environment they deserve.
