Along with the abundant light of a skylight, comes a need to balance the amount of warm/cool air entering your home. Let’s talk about some options that help balance room temperature while providing just the right amount of natural lighting.
Thermal glazer skylights – Making the choice from the beginning to install polycarbonate thermal glazer skylights is one way to create a substantial energy savings in any air-conditioned/heated building, no matter what the season is. As a bonus, polycarbonate thermal glazer skylights are built to filter out 99.9% of ultraviolet light, protecting your home and family. And did we mention they have excellent fire resistant properties?
Skylight Heat Blockers – These custom covers are a good way to prevent a spike in your utility bills during the hottest times of the year. Designed to cover your skylight externally, they “block” the amount of light and heat that passes through. Don’t worry, they are transparent enough not to overly darken a room, but are not as easily adjustable as most blinds.
Skylight Blinds – If the look of your skylight as well as the ability to change lighting during the day means a great deal to you, then skylight blinds are a very stylish way of filtering out direct sunlight. They do prevent fading of carpets and pillows and reduce heating and cooling costs and being adjustable, skylight blinds grant a greater sense of privacy and cut down on external noise.
