The Advantages of Skylights

Skylights aren’t right for every commercial building, but they have many advantages. Check out these five reasons why installing a skylight in your building can benefit you:

· Cost Savings – Operating a building can be expensive, and heat and electricity are often the most significant expenses. Skylights allow free light and heat into the building which cuts costs. Buildings featuring skylights need less light and heat than those without them.

· Environmental Impact – Buildings emit as much as 40% of total greenhouse gasses, so anything you can do to reduce them is important. You can lower your carbon footprint by reducing heating and electricity thanks to skylights.

· Improved Aesthetics – Buildings with natural light are more welcoming. They create a pleasant atmosphere to work in, and visitors appreciate the glow they provide.

· Increased Productivity – Natural lighting in the workplace can make employees more productive. Natural light produces Vitamin D. The vitamin can ease depression and chronic pain. Natural light can also make employees more engaged and reduce sick days.

· Building Value – Skylights can increase the value of your building. In fact, some buildings with natural light are leased for about $4 more per square foot.

The Disadvantages of Commercial Skylights

The advantages of commercial skylights outweigh the disadvantages, but you should still consider:

· Excessive Light – Too much direct sun isn’t always a good thing, but skylights can be installed in a way that they provide the perfect amount of light.

· Heat Production – Buildings that are too hot can be uncomfortable. We can install window films or glazing on your new skylights for optimal temperature control.

· Roof Space – You’ll want to dedicate 7 to 10% of your total roof space to your skylight(s). This can be tough if you have a small roof or one with lots of equipment, vents, or an HVAC system. Our team can check your roof to ensure you’ll have enough space.

· Leak Risks – If skylights are not properly installed, they may allow water to seep inside the building. The same can be true for snow, but our experienced professionals will install appropriate skylights for your climate.

· Breakage Risks – The Maryland weather can be tough on roofs, and the glass in skylights can be vulnerable. We can solve this issue by installing the right skylights for your building and location.
