Everyone loves natural light. There’s nothing worse than being inside of a big department store or somewhere without access to windows because it can feel claustrophobic and suffocating. It feels so good once you exit and step outside to breathe in that refreshing air.

The benefits of adding a skylight to your home extend beyond your environment to your own personal well-being. Consider the advantages below.
Skylights Reduce Mildew and Mould
There are many diseases, especially chronic respiratory problems, which are often associated with fungal and bacterial build-up in damp areas such as bathrooms and basements.
A skylight (or several) in your home soaked in natural light, and this can naturally lessen the production of harmful organisms. Sunlight is considered to be one of the best natural disinfectants because of its ultraviolet rays.
Skylights Reduce Energy Consumption
With a skylight, there is less dependency on artificial lighting because of the beautiful, natural light that will flood throughout your house.
This can help to reduce the use of electricity by as much as 10% and it will lower the price of your heating bills.
Skylights Improve Work Performance
Do you work from home or have an office or studio that you occasionally work out of?
Many case studies have shown that significant improvements occur in work performance where natural lighting has been introduced. Natural light makes things brighter and there is also the critical dose of Vitamin D that we all need to make it through these winter months.
Skylights Give Us a Healthy Amount of Vitamin D
Skylights provide ample amounts of sunlight, which is full of Vitamin D. Without enough Vitamin D, people can develop diseases such as rickets and beriberi.
Vitamin D is made from cholesterol in your skin when it’s exposed to the sun. This is why it’s important that we get enough sunlight to maintain optimal levels of Vitamin D.
Many studies have also suggested that low levels of Vitamin D are linked to:
- Muscle Weakness
- And more
It’s difficult to get enough Vitamin D without natural light as it’s not commonly found in many foods. Only a handful of foods contain it, including salmon, cod liver oil, and egg yolks. In order to get a healthy amount of Vitamin D, you would have to eat these foods every single day.
You can beat the winter blues, stay healthy, and save money with a beautifully crafted and installed skylight, in any part of your home. Illuminate your home today with natural light!
