What are the Different Types of Standard Skylights We Install?
If you’re a homeowner starting the journey towards natural lighting there are many skylight options at your disposal. The term “standard skylight” encompasses a number of commonly installed skylights, all of which are perfectly suitable for residential homes. From vented skylights that allow fresh air into your home and close automatically at the first sign of rain, to more budget friendly and extremely effective sun tunnels. Let’s take a look below at some of the most popular standard skylight fixtures available.
Electric Venting Skylights
Electric venting skylights have built-in rain sensors that tell the electric skylight to close when it begins to rain. They also come fully equipped with a remote control, that means no more climbing up and cranking by hand! Electric venting skylight installers are setting the new standard for modern homes.
Manually Venting Skylights
Manually venting skylights are a wonderful way to vent any room. Manually venting skylight installers often install these units where moisture buildup can cause mold and mildew problems. Not surprisingly, manually venting skylights do have some advantages over their electric counterparts, such as a lower price.
Rounded skylights can give any area of your home that eye catching flair and beautiful sunlight it so desires. Often used to highlight kitchen, bathroom and office spaces, rounded skylights provide an aura of beauty and elegance to any application. Usually composed of acrylic, these round spherical skylights are becoming increasingly popular with homeowners with flat as well as pitched roofs.
Sun Tunnels provide a compact minimally intrusive solution to lighting needs anywhere in the home. Closets, hallways, kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms can all benefit from installing sun tunnels (also know as sun tubes). Sun tunnels are composed of a dome fitted to your roof that captures light and directs it down a tube and into your home. This Eco friendly lighting solution can be installed on pitched and flat roofs. Sun tunnels are a much lighter load on your wallet when compared to installing skylight windows. It’s safe to say they pack a big punch for a little price.
