Home Plans With Skylights

Natural light is becoming increasingly popular among those building their homes. That's the reason so many home designs feature large windows and open floor plans. If you are looking to add natural light to your newly built home, then it's time to consider a home skylight. With a skylight design for your home plans, you can have even more natural light, especially to areas far from windows, making your home feel warmer and more inviting.

What Is a Skylight?

A skylight for your house is an opening somewhere in your roof or ceiling that is covered by a glazed glass panel. These lights let additional light into the home; some are also designed to improve ventilation. Skylights can be small, such as a sun tunnel that lets in a little light; or large, such as an extravagant light that takes much of the ceiling space in a room.Fixed skylights are held tightly in place, without the ability to open. These provide natural light while ensuring the home's envelope remains sealed and the home stays energy efficient. On the other hand, retractable skylights allow for the homeowner to open the light and let in fresh air, when desired. Both are beneficial, depending on the homeowner's goal for the home.

Benefits of Skylights

Skylights are an excellent aesthetic option for your home, but they also offer benefits for the occupants of your home. Natural lighting has been connected to better moods, increased Vitamin D levels and reduced eye strain. Natural ventilation helps keep fresh air in the home circulating, improving comfort and health for the home's occupants. Skylights can also reduce energy consumption by adding natural light and allowing for natural cooling during summer.
