Why are skylight windows an essential element of your home or office in the Chicago area? We might be a little biased, but here are a few reasons:
- If you want to brighten up your life, skylight windows are a great way to do it. Also known as daylighting, they are a more efficient way to let natural light into a room or interior area. Windows, or side-lighting, only selectively allow light in depending on the times of day and year and placement. Skylight windows can be between three to ten times more efficient, even on cloudy days.
- With huge leaps in technology, modern skylight windows can be made from a wide variety of glass and plastics. Plastic skylight windows can boost thermal properties, acrylics are commonly used for domed skylights, and glass can increase views and thermal performance.
- Ever feel like your electrical bills only ever go up? You can slow, or even reverse that annoying trend with skylight windows. Through passive solar building design, sunlight naturally warms indoor spaces. The added heat means there’s less of a need to use electrical heating systems.
