There’s a lot to be enjoyed when you have natural light. Aside from simply having sufficient illumination during the day, it can also make your home feel more spacious and inviting, as well as let you enjoy some health benefits. Windows are the primary choice for letting in natural light but what if you can’t add one?
That’s where skylights and solar tubes come in.
To help you decide between the two, expert roofing contractors Roofmasters Roofing and Metal Sheet Company suggest taking into consideration these things:
Skylights can add to a room’s appearance because it provides a view of the sky. This also helps bump up property values, which is important to note if you are looking to sell down the line. Solar tubes, on the other hand, offer little improvement in interior visual interest on top of offering more natural light.
If you are looking for ways to improve ventilation in your home naturally, you can count on skylights to help. Just make sure you’re getting an operable unit from experts in roofing and gutters. Solar tubes don’t open so they can’t help with letting in the fresh air and letting out the stale air from a home.
Want to harness the heat that comes with sunlight to ease your home’s heating requirements? You can expect that from skylights because they are essentially windows, especially if you have them installed over your home’s south side. Solar tubes are best for those who want to avoid passive heating.
