There are few things that are as comforting and calming as walking into a room with splendid natural light. Skylights not only increase the beauty of a room; they actually also have several documented physical and psychological benefits, not to mention adding value and energy efficiency to your home.
If you are a bit on the fence about letting your roofing company install a skylight in your home, here are four excellent reasons why it is a worthwhile investment.
1. Natural Light and Heating
The extra light is, of course, the most obvious benefit of adding a skylight. But with all the extra light comes extra heat as well. Adding a skylight is a great way to cut down on heating costs especially during the chilly winter months.
2. Physical Benefits
Exposure to natural light is the most natural way to get enough Vitamin D into our bodies. Most physicians recommend exposure to midday sunlight for about 10 to 30 minutes at least several times a week. A deficiency in Vitamin D can cause fatigue, muscle weakness and cramps.
3. Psychological Benefits
It is a well-known fact that natural lighting helps regulate our mood and energy levels. Inadequate exposure to natural light can cause you to feel depressed and lethargic. Natural light is also a proven way to boost productivity so it is perfect for workplaces and home offices.
With more and more homes being built so closely together, there is a premium for privacy. When installing a window isn’t an option, most roofers will recommend installing a skylight. Skylights are a popular choice especially for bedrooms and bathrooms where natural light and privacy are extremely important.
