Benefits of Skylights
Skylights offer several benefits, such as:
- Better lighting – Skylights add more natural light and ventilation to your rooms, helping to freshen up a stuffy home.
- More open feel – A skylight opens up your ceiling to the outdoors, creating an illusion of more space. Plus you get to look at the sky day and night!
- Improved energy efficiency – The natural light lessens the need for keeping the lights on, lets cool air in, and can help heat your home. All of this helps you save you money on your energy bills.
Types of Skylights Allstate Exteriors Installs
Ventilating skylights are the most popular skylight option. They are capable of providing a significant amount of natural light to any room in your home. Its more like adding a new window in your roof, giving a nice view of the night sky. Additionally, these skylights provide ventilation for rooms with high moisture content, such as the bathroom, washroom, or kitchen.
Fixed skylights are the base level of skylights. They cannot be opened, but are considered to be the best at protecting your home from leaks.
A curb-mount is a wooden frame built to house the skylight. Curb-mounted skylights have a simple design but are very effective. They are relatively affordable and work well for a wide range of roofs. However, you will need to buy a flashing kit to make the skylight completely waterproof.
Some ventilating skylights are solar-powered to operate various devices and save money on energy bills. These skylights will always have plenty of power stored in their concealed batteries. A built-in rain sensor even closes the skylight if it starts raining.
Automatic Ventilating Skylights
Automatic skylights have the ability to be operated electronically. Instead of climbing a ladder to open up the skylight, you’ll only need to press a button. The skylights open quickly, allowing you to enjoy the fresh air whenever you want.
