Environmental Benefits Of Skylights

Skylights are essentially just large windows that are placed in the roof structure of a house or building. This can allow for large amounts of natural light to enter into the building or the house, making the space appear to be larger, as well-lit spaces are perceived to be larger by people. In addition to this, there are a large amount of environmental benefits of the installation of perfect skylights that are present. Furthermore, it can also help to increase the productivity of the residents of the building or the house, this is due to the indirect benefits of the positive psychological effects of natural light. The importance of the presence of natural light is also highlighted through various building design codes which necessitate the presence of a certain amount of natural light in buildings for the education institutions as the presence of natural light has been proven to increase the productivity of the people involved. 

Skylights are purely mechanical in nature which is why they do not need any power to operate and provide lighting to a large area of the house or a building without the need of electricity. Generation of electricity is a major cause of carbon emissions that are one of the main causes of climate change and associated phenomenon such as global warming. This means that reducing the usage of electricity can reduce the emissions associated with the production of electricity, thereby reducing the harmful effects of global warming and climate change. Skylights can help in this regard as they can provide a source of natural illumination inside buildings and homes and, in some cases can also provide ventilation as natural ventilation can be used as opposed to mechanical ventilation which requires the use of electricity. There is also a financial benefit to the users of the skylight as with the reduced amount of electrical usage, the utility bills will also be less thereby saving the budget for the operation of the home and increasing the savings that can be done. Since skylights are mechanical in nature, the maintenance requirements for these pieces of equipment are low. This is when they are compared to the maintenance requirements of large lighting installations, which have complex circuitry inside them which can ultimately lead to greater amount of maintenance.
