Reasons to add a skylight when upgrading your roof

When you are upgrading your roof, you will have the ability to add a skylight to your home. Skylights are a popular architectural feature for many homeowners. If you are looking to add light and spaciousness to your home’s interior, a skylight may be the right choice for your next home renovation project. Here are some great reasons to consider adding a skylight when you upgrade your roof.

Enhanced privacy

Skylights provide the air and light of a window, while also maintaining the privacy of your home. If you live close to your neighbors, a skylight may be a great option for you. For example, a skylight in a bathroom can add natural light, without compromising the privacy of the space.

Improved Ventilation

Fresh air is essential for the health and harmony of you and your family. When you install a electric venting skylight, your home will be provided with high-quality air that you will love to breathe. In addition, skylights on the roof can help to vent out hot air in the summer, which will help you keep cool during the warm months of the year.

Increased light

A skylight can increase the amount of light in darker spaces throughout your home. By bringing natural light into your home, you will experience a noticeable difference in the overall feel and quality of your interior spaces. By offering a great source of natural light, skylights are an effective way to make your house feel like a home.

Federal tax credit

Under two laws passed in 2008, residents can receive a 30% tax credit on qualifying products in renewable technologies. The Residential Energy Efficient Property Credit offers a discount for both the purchase and installation of these energy efficient products. Beyond solar panels and geothermal pumps, the credit applies to VELUX Solar Powered Skylights, a product that uses a solar panel to capture sunlight and recharge a battery-powered control system.
