Expert Installation of Skylights, Solar Tubes & Attic Fans
Although the majority of work we do involves roofing, JTI Roofing also offers skylights, solar tubes and attic fans. Because all impact the roof when installed, it’s essential that these installations be done by a company well-versed in roofing. If you’re considering adding any of these accessories to your home, let JTI Roofing ensure they’re properly installed and maintained.
Skylights & Solar Tubes
Skylights and solar tubes both admit more light into your home, but they differ in a few ways. A skylight can open and close, providing ventilation as well as light. It is also directly installed on a roof. A solar tube only allows light into your home and goes through an attic.
There are four main benefits of skylights:
- Reduced reliance on artificial lighting, which can lead to lower utility bills.
- Opening a skylight can provide increased ventilation in your home.
- Natural sunlight is a proven mood enhancer. It’s been shown to lower blood pressure and help people recover from illness more quickly.
- Sunlight kills harmful organisms, reducing bacterial and fungal build-up.
Solar tubes offer the same benefits except ventilation as they cannot be opened. When you choose an ENERGY STAR® product installed by a professional company like JTI Roofing, you may even see an increase in your home’s value. Natural light is something many homeowners look for in a new home.
Although your attic has ventilation (or should), adding an attic fan provides additional benefits. Your attic is vented to allow the hot air out, but if you’ve ever been in your attic in the middle of the summer, you’ve likely noticed how extremely hot it is. The hotter the inside of your attic, the faster your shingles age, the higher your utility bills and the more moisture build-up your home experiences.
An attic fan reduces the heat in your attic by forcing the hot air out more quickly than a ridge vent or box vent does. Either solar-powered or wired into your home’s electricity, attic fans can lower your home’s cooling costs. Although there is debate on how much can be saved, choosing JTI Roofing for your attic fan installation will help ensure your home is properly sealed to maximized the attic fan’s benefits.
