Light Up a Dark Room with Skylights

Do you have a room in your home that feels a little gloomy or lacks natural light? If you live in an older home, you probably know that feeling. Houses did not always have windows in every room, and natural light was a commodity. 

At Rusco, we believe every room in your house deserves to shine, and installing skylights is one way to add natural light to any room. 

Why Choose Skylights?

Skylights are more than just windows; they bring the sky indoors for a flood of natural light from above. If you aren’t convinced, here are some reasons that skylights are a great choice for lighting up a dark room:

  1. Natural Light: Skylights provide an abundant source of natural light.  Rooms feel larger and more inviting with natural lighting.
  2. Energy Efficiency: Natural daylight decreases the need for lighting in an otherwise dark room. This, in turn, can decrease your energy bill. Further, depending on the type of skylight, there are thermal benefits like warmth in the winter and hot air escape in the summer.
  3. Improved Ventilation: Some skylights open to allow fresh air to circulate through your home. These skylights are beneficial in kitchens and bathrooms where humidity can be high. Air quality is improved and the risk of mold is lessened.
  4. Enhanced Well-being: Exposure to natural light boosts mood and has been shown to improve health by regulating natural circadian rhythms.
  5. Visual Appeal: Skylights add a dramatic touch to any room, creating visual interest and potentially increasing the value of your home. An ordinary room suddenly becomes an observatory for the stars.

Choosing the Right Skylights for Your Home

At Rusco, we offer various skylight options, and choosing the right one depends on several factors such as the room’s layout, your home’s architecture, and your design ideas. Here are a few types you might consider:

  • Fixed Skylights: These are sealed to the roof and do not open. These are used when the sole purpose is natural lighting.
  • Vented Skylights: These open manually or with a motor, allowing for ventilation and light. They’re perfect for kitchens and bathrooms where airflow is essential.
  • Tubular Skylights: If your area is small and traditional skylights won’t fit, a tubular skylight is the answer.
