Making your home beautiful and in line with your preferences is very important. Your home is the one space where you get to live without much care or pressure so do not shy from adding your personal touch. Skylights are an example of a home customisation. Many people install skylights because they want more sunshine in the house or they did not have space on the wall for a window. However, there are so many other benefits of skylights. Below is a list of unusual skylights benefits.
Indoor solar harvesting
You no longer have to pay the extra charge of having your solar harvesters installed on the roof of your house. With skylights, you can comfortably harvest sunlight from within your house. If you live in a place with high sunshine intensity, you just have to align your skylights with the direction of the sun.
With skylights, you no longer have to worry about having an outdoor garden. Your flowers and plants in general will get all the sunshine they need with properly fitted skylights. Whether they are scattered through your house or placed in one room, skylights will deliver the needed sunshine. This is especially beneficial for people who have not been able to grow certain plants because they were told they needed a lot of sunlight.
When you do not have a pool in your back yard and you do not feel comfortable sunbathing in your front yard, the beach or a public pool are your other options. But why bother yourself when you can have your own homemade sun bathing spa? All you need is a sunscreen, sunglasses, your swimsuit and a cold drink to keep yourself hydrated. Skylights will save you the time, energy, and money that you would have used to go for sunshine elsewhere.
No more dampness
Have you ever noticed a certain smell around your house and you later realize it is because of lack of aeration? However, when you open your windows, the smell does not completely disappear. This is because dampness is caused by an unhealthy amount of moisture in the air. This moisture gets absorbed by furniture and clothes giving them the smell of wet stored fabric. Opening the windows goes a long way in aerating the house, but without sufficient sunshine to dry the moisture off, the smell will not end. Skylights increase the amount of sunlight coming into your home. The warmer your house, the more the moisture evaporates, and your furniture and clothes will be drier.
