Skylights are a great addition to any home. They provide natural light and fresh air in a way that normal windows just can’t compete with. However, skylight costs are often a major concern for customers who are thinking about investing in one.
After all, they’re pretty expensive, right?
Well actually, no. Although the initial price tag might make it appear that a skylight is out of your budget, it’s important to take into consideration how much money one could save you.
Data provided by the U.S government shows that, depending on where they live, the average homeowner spent anywhere from $98 to $130 on their electricity bill each month. For many of us, that’s simply too much!
Installing a residential skylight can help you to spend less on electricity every month. By allowing natural light into your home, you’ll avoid having to turn on the lights during the daytime. You can enjoy warm sunshine without jacking up your electricity bill.
Below, we’ve outlined some information on the cost of different Wasco skylight models and provided some tips on saving money when you buy one.
What’s the Average Cost of a Wasco Skylight?
Skylights come in a variety of different makes and models. Certain models operate manually while others are remote-controlled. The cost of each model depends on its features and dimensions.
Wasco sells a Fixed Mount model that will only cost a few hundred bucks (including installation). These skylights can’t be opened, but they are a fantastic source of natural light.
Wasco Deck Mounted Manual Venting and Curb Mounted Manual Venting skylights, on the other hand, can be opened and closed whenever you’d like. Although they cost a bit more than Fixed Mount skylights, they can save you money in the long run by helping you cut down on the costs of air conditioning.
If you have a bit more money in your budget, Wasco sells a number of Deck Mounted Solar Venting and Curb Mounted Solar Venting skylights. These models not only open and close but can be operated via a mobile device.
