Here at Service Villa we are always looking for innovative products that can make all our lives better. I recently went to a party and noticed a skylight over the kitchen area where the party was held. I couldn't help but notice how much this device helped without anyone even noticing what it was doing.
The use of a skylight provides natural light without the use of any electricity. Since the sun is a free source of energy it will not only reduce your electrical usage but also the strain on your utility to generate the power for you. Studies have found that natural light has a positive effect on humans emotions and psychologically. These same studies also show that people living in well-lit homes tend to be generally healthier.
is one of the big players when it comes to skylights, roof windows, and sun tunnels. They make different styles and shapes to allow you to get creative. Velux skylights block out heat gain associated with UV penetration, while minimizing air leakage, keeping in place the conditioned air inside your home. They injects argon gas between the panes of all their glass and use low emissivity coatings to make sure their products are the most energy efficient and environmentally supportive in the industry.
Velux also features venting skylights. The venting skylights reduce the need for air conditioning throughout certain periods of the year, and when installed in bathrooms or places that can have moisture, they remove moisture and foul odors from the air. This in turn removes the need to have a bathroom fan installed, making it an even greener product.
One of our favorite features of the skylights in general is the privacy you get. You can have all your windows closed yet still get that much needed natural light. If it is nice and cool outside, and you purchase one of their vented units you could open the manual or electric vent and have some fresh air from outside minimizing your cooling costs.
If we all had skylight's at home just imagine the savings we could have and the carbon footprint that we could relieve.
The benefits of the skylight clearly outweigh their price. Specially when it eventually pays for itself after the money you will save on electric utility.
