As with any decision you make about remodelling your home, you must balance the pros and cons. A new kitchen could cost you a vacation, and a new bathroom could mean the difference between that new truck, or another year on the old warhorse. But in the case of skylights, the price must incorporate the notable benefits to be offered by its installation on your home. The quote and price of your Melbourne skylight might be less than you think.
First, and most clearly, added illumination to your home means your energy bill will automatically decrease. Using natural illumination from out of doors in to areas that were formerly only lit with interior lights can make a real difference to your total at the end of the month.
Secondly, the benefits of natural sunlight are not only measured on your energy bill. Skylight quotes and prices in Melbourne won’t necessarily quantify the benefits to one’s health that can be provided by added exposure to natural sunlight, but they can include:
- A heightened mood
- More energy
- More virility
- A better circadian rhythm, leading to improved sleep patterns
- Less chance to develop Seasonal Affective Disorder in the winter months
It is difficult to quantify the value of these things directly, but then, quality of life is a difficult thing to gauge. Different people value different things. All we know is that natural sunlight, through a top-quality skylight, can improve yours.
