Skylights and Sun Tunnels 101

If you have been looking for a way to bring more natural light into your home,skylights and sun-tunnels can make a fabulous addition to your house. Before you call in a contractor, however, it is important that you have all the facts about these lights so you can be sure that the job is done exactly as you had hoped.

In an article entitled Let There Be Light! The Facts about Skylights and Sun Tunnels, Brian Ciota of McClurg’s Home Remodeling Blog provides some very important facts and information. Read the full article to learn why the size of your skylight matters, what you need to know about glazings and coats, and how proper installation can save you money on energy costs.

One of the most important points Ciota makes is that skylights must be installed properly in order to prevent expensive energy losses, so it is important that you have the job done by an experienced professional rather than taking it on as a DIY job.
