As a South Florida resident, your body is probably used to craving Vitamin D regularly. We often look for ways to absorb more sunlight throughout the day, especially from the comfort of our homes. How can owners of residential properties maximize natural light while elevating the home’s interior? By adding a skylight to your South Florida roofing system, you will be able to improve your home’s aesthetic and enjoy a sunlit environment each day.
What is a skylight?
A skylight is a type of light-transmitting structure that provides natural light, ventilation, views of the outdoors and energy efficiency. This “roof window” structure can be installed as a smaller part of the roof’s area or as a complete roofing structure. Skylights come in a range of shapes, like arched, domed, or pyramid, and structural forms, like vented, fixed, and tubular. A homeowner might opt for a skylight if he or she wants to add natural light to a dim area of the house.
What are the benefits of a skylight?
Skylights bring about many benefits to South Florida homeowners. Here are a few advantages to installing a skylight in your home noted by All American Roofing:
Skylights are energy efficient. These structures eliminate the need for excess electricity, minimizing your ecological footprint as a residential property owner.
Skylights can improve your overall mood. Natural sunlight triggers the release of serotonin, a hormone that can enhance feelings of happiness, peace, and tranquility. Serotonin can help keep you active and productive throughout the day.
Skylights can save you money as a residential property owner. By using less electricity, you are more likely to save on utility costs once a skylight is installed.
Skylights elevate your home interior’s overall aesthetic. These structures are known to make a space feel open and comfortable. Additionally, skylights can add a unique design aesthetic depending on which size, shape, and form of structure you choose for your roof.
Skylights can add value to your South Florida residential property. Although unconventional, skylights can contribute to the resale value of your home. When a skylight is installed to brighten up a dark and otherwise worthless space, a sense of purpose is added to the area. Top-notch skylights are also visually pleasing and perform well as cosmetic additions during open houses or real estate showings.
