#1 SKYLIGHTS ARE COST-EFFECTIVE AND ECO-FRIENDLY
In 2016, the U.S. government found that the average electric bill for American homeowners ranged from around $98 to $130 per month (based on where they lived).
Residential skylights can greatly reduce this amount by providing a natural source of light and fresh air, decreasing the need for electricity during the daytime. With residential skylights, homeowners enjoy the sunshine all day without ever hitting the light switch.
And skylights may not be as expensive as you might think!
VELUX solar-powered products qualify for a 26% tax credit. In some cases, the tax credit can cover the solar powered blind, or a fixed skylight model.
And in the long-run, skylights will enable you to cut down on the cost of electricity and air-conditioning. With sunshine beaming down into the home, there won't be any need to have the lights on during the day and an open skylight will provide all of the cool, fresh air you need. This, of course, is a benefit to homeowners and to the environment itself
