Winter is here. And the battle begins with your thermostat to maintain that perfect comfort level inside when the weather outside drops. Heating bills over the winter months can really add up and any help you can get to lower those costs and not over-run your furnace will make your holiday season easier.
Installing skylights allows for natural warmth from the sun
Our homes are insulated to keep in warm air and block the cold air outside. But even on the coldest days, sunlight can provide immense warmth. Skylights positioned on the roof will let the sun’s rays enter the home in various rooms all day long. This “all-natural” heat source will keep the interiors of your home warm and help as a sidekick to your furnace and heating system.
Skylights trap in heat
When skylights allow the sun’s rays to enter your home, the warmth not only spreads through the interior but will continue to heat your living space long after it enters. During the peak sunlight hours, your skylights could allow enough solar warmth to keep your thermostat from running at all. This equates to huge savings at the end of each month.
Solar energy helps the environment
Not only will skylights allow for utility cost cuts in your home, but using solar energy for warmth is also very environmentally friendly. The U.S. Department of Energy created a consumer resource website to explain the benefits of solar energy and offer tips for homes during the different seasons.
