According to the recent estimates of the Energy Information Administration, 14% of all residential electricity consumption is used for lighting. Have you considered doing house upgrades that can bring in more natural light into your home? Because with more natural light coming in, you will likely rely less on electricity for lighting.
You may ask the help of an expert on roofing in Virginia Beach about adding skylights. We recommend this practical option because, aside from energy efficiency, you can also expect to get these benefits:
You can improve your home’s aesthetic appeal and natural lighting is a great way to accentuate your interiors, especially if you have guests coming over.
At no expense to your wallet or to the environment, you can enjoy ventilation or natural heating, when you need it most.
Since skylights are installed directly onto the roof, you can free up wall space that is otherwise consumed by lamps. You can then use the space for home fixtures like cabinets, paintings, etc.
Furthermore, energy efficiency and aesthetic appeal that comes from installing a skylight can increase your property’s value—great news if you are thinking of selling your home.
