There are many things you can do to go green, one of which involves taking advantage of skylights. While going green requires a lifestyle change, a lot of people don’t realize that something as mundane as roof work can have a positive impact on the environment. At the end of the day, every little bit helps, including installing skylights.
They Reduce Dependence on Artificial Lighting
By easing dependence on artificial lighting, skylights benefit the environment in two ways: first, by helping you cut back on energy use, which can aid in reducing strain on the grid, and, second, by letting you help cut back on trash that end up in landfills by allowing your light bulbs to last longer as they are not used as frequently.
They Harness Passive Heating
During the cooler months, skylights can help you cut back on your home’s heating load by letting in warmth from the sun. This can be so effective at heating up a room that you won’t need to use your heater for a bit, reducing energy and roof maintenance costs for you during the fall and winter months.
Bonus: These things are definitely good for the environment, but what’s even better is that they can help you save on costs down the line, providing you with the means to invest in your home in other ways.
