Adding natural light to a home has a lot of great benefits. Sunlight can make your home feel more welcoming and appealing. Studies have also shown that natural light can improve your mood and boost your productivity. One of the best ways to get more sunlight for your home is by using solar tubes and skylights. In this article, JTI Roofing, one of the top residential roofers in our local area, will discuss the features and benefits of skylights and solar tubes.
Solar tubes are a modern approach to providing a home with sunlight. They have a durable and impact-resistant one piece design that requires virtually no repairs or maintenance. Solar tubes are also designed to maximize the amount of sunlight they collect while minimizing the amount of glare and heat. Solar tubes are a good source of natural daylight, but they also can’t be opened and they don’t provide views of the sky.
Skylights are the traditional way to add more natural light to a home. As one of the top roofing contractors in our area, we can install beautiful and durable skylights for our customers. Skylights look similar to windows because they are sheets of glass that are encased in frames. Unlike solar tubes, skylights can also be opened and closed. This allows them to provide natural ventilation and unfiltered sunlight for your home.There are many different kinds of skylights available on the market as well.
There are motorized skylights that can be opened and closed using a remote and there are skylights that are designed to be incredibly energy-efficient. Skylights take more time to install than solar tubes because of their more complicated design.
