The benefits to have skylights installed in your home in Melbourne weather
Reduce energy bills
Skylights provide you with natural light, helping you reduce energy costs, saving you a significant amount of money monthly.
Plus, you can get even more savings if you pay attention to some other areas. We often install light bulbs in dark halls or walk-in closets. With tubular skylights, you no longer need bulbs in these places.
Skylights mean health improvement. Compare a home with only light bulbs and a home bathed in natural light – which one does you more good? The obvious answer lies in the latter one. It’s undeniable that a strong connection with nature is perfect for your well-being. It brings you positive energy and high spirits.
Minimizing the amount of light bulbs in your home contributes to a reduction in the likelihood of eye strain. Also, natural light from skylights helps prevent mould or fungus growing in your home because these little beasts prefer darkness. In one way or another, a home with a skylight results in happier and healthier occupants.
Increase your home’s resale value
Skylights play a role as a sustainable feature because they help save energy. Thus, when home buyers look for homes, they will be more impressed with those that have a skylight installed. Researchers have found that if a home has a skylight, its resale value will increase up to 10% of its original value.
Besides natural sunlight, letting in fresh air is the second benefit of skylights. However, this does not mean they allow all types of air. They will also expel hot air for you.
For example, a skylight installed in a bathroom can do you some good because it pushes steam out through the bathroom window. Moreover, are you tired of cooking odours where you cook? Skylights come in useful here too, resulting in a clean and odourless kitchen.
Also, if you intend to install a skylight in your attic room, you can keep the air in the attic fresh with roof windows that are manually or remotely operated.
Immerse your home in natural light
The most important function of a skylight is to allow natural light into your living space. This is the most obvious reason to install one – or more! By filling your living space with natural light, skylights connect you with nature in a simple and beautiful way. What is more wonderful than standing right in your room and looking up to see a clear blue sky above?
And don’t let the thought of exposure to direct sunlight worry you, because there are many ways to install skylights in the best positions to avoid direct sunlight.
A magical Interior Design hack
Believe it or not, apart from air, sunlight, health and economical savings, skylights can seemingly add more space to a small room. Almost everybody has this feeling on entering a room with a skylight.
Thanks to the presence of natural light, skylights make room decor more visible. That little enhancement of everything you see helps give the illusion of more space. But it is a helpful and health giving illusion, because the feeling of more space is like a feeling of freedom, not being closed in or smothered.
Wherever you are, in your own room, your bathroom, or your kitchen, installing a skylight means you can engage more with outdoors nature on a regular basis, and get to love deeply this engagement. A space filled with love is a space worth your time.
