Homeowners may initially feel unsure about adding skylights and whether they are worth the value. This is why it is a good idea to learn about all the excellent advantages that come from installing these amazing sources of light.
By adding a skylight to their homes, residents can benefit from:
- A natural source of light and heat – Although artificial light serves its purpose, many studies have shown that it is essential that people get enough natural light. Not only does a skylight provide this advantage but it also is a great way to take in solar heat. This allows residents to cut costs on account of reduced amounts of electricity.
- Increased health – Access to natural light means that residents can also benefit from increased Vitamin D and B. Skylights also improve ventilation, which stops unpleasant odors or harmful fumes from infiltrating the home. Most importantly, better air quality also reduces the chances of mold or mildew growing.
- More space – Having more natural light is a great way to instantly make rooms feel more open and spacious without having to completely restructure the house.

Both skylights and sun tunnels are excellent sources of natural light, but they look and act in very different ways. A skylight is installed right into the decking of the roof or mounted on a wall that faces outside. No matter its location, the window will offer an extensive amount of light. In contrast, a sun tunnel works by taking sunlight into an acrylic dome. The beams are magnified before being transferred through the tunnel and then into a diffuser. Although the tube does not directly let in the sunshine like a window, it still offers a good deal of natural light.
When it comes to using these forms of light sources, homeowners do not have to choose between them but can install both in different locations. Skylights are great for larger areas that have space to add a full window. However, sun tunnels work well for places that have no access to natural light. For example, bathrooms, utility rooms, laundry rooms, hallways, bedrooms, and even storage closets can benefit from these tunnels. To start planning which rooms would work well with skylights or tunnels, schedule a detailed consultation with our team at New Heights Roofing.
