When properly installed, a skylight can provide both natural air and daylight for your home. If you’re considering installing one for your home but not sure whether it’s worth the investment, you can always consult a trusted roofing contractor on what your best options are. Edward Klecka Construction Company explains what you can benefit from installing a skylight:
More Natural Air
Skylights can provide good ventilation for your home. When you ventilate your home with a skylight, the hot air that naturally accumulates near the ceiling gets released. Most skylights are usually designed to open outward at the bottom, but you can also get one that vents through a small, hinged panel. These units may be opened manually with either a pole, chain, or crank.
If you want a little more convenience, you can hire a trusted roofing company to install an automated skylight with electric motors or pneumatic devices. They incorporate moisture sensors to automatically close the skylight when it rains. And with our services, you can even choose to have larger skylights installed that can double as emergency exits in case something happens. These types of skylights are often called “roof windows” since they’re located within a few feet of the floor.
More Natural Light
Modern skylights are capable of providing enough natural light in your home without daytime heat gain or nighttime heat loss. And with the recent advancements in skylight design, you now have a range of options to choose from, including one that uses sun-tracking and open-sided cylinders, large lens-like elements, and even mirrored reflectors that are mounted adjacent to a conventional skylight!
