Standard skylights are a great addition to any room in order to capture more natural light and to illuminate a room’s features.
However, I have noticed that they are not without their drawbacks. Two problems that are frequently encountered are: lack of
control of the amount of light that enters or exits your living space and consequently the amount of heat lost or gained
through them. I have found the perfect solution to combat both these problems. It is the installation of a skylight Shades!
During those long, hot summer days, the temperatures outside and hence inside rise rapidly. Sometime during the day and into
the evening, we find that the temperatures inside can become just as unbearable outside. We end up turning on the air
conditioner, if we are blessed to have one, only to incur higher energy costs to cool our homes. The other result is to leave
windows open and hope that a nice gentle breeze will filter in without inviting pesky insects along. A skylight Shades provides
an ideal solution. It helps to control that unwanted rise in temperature and thus helping to maintain a cooler climate in your
Conversely, during those long, cold wintery nights, the area around a skylight can drop approximately 5 to 10 degrees below
ambient temperatures. A skylight Shades works as a perfect insulator to minimize the valuable heat loss from your room due to
Another problem encountered is the amount of excess light that your skylight allows in. During the night, your skylight allows
extraneous light into your room, thus preventing you from trying to sleep. This is especially the case when trying to put a
small child or baby down for a nap during the day. Skylight Black out Shade literally allow you to turn day into night.
In addition to the light that enters, your home or office through your skylight is the unwanted UV rays. These damaging rays
have a profound effect on your floors, carpet and home furnishings causing them to dull or fade well before their time. The use
of a skylight Shade is a great protector against the sun’s harmful rays and their damaging effects.
The added bonus is that skylight screens come with a variety of options to make their use simple and trouble free.
Retractable skylight Shades:
These Shades are ideal for convenience, style and functionality. Their profiles subtly integrate with their surroundings and
blend effortlessly with exterior and interior surroundings of your home or office. Most retractable skylight Shades can be
matched to almost any color scheme.
Motorized Skylight Shades
This is one of the best features because it allows you greatest amount of ease when retracting your Shades. Literally with the
touch of a button on your own TV remote you can adjust your motorized skylight Shade the perfect amount.
This feature is ingenious because in the controls it has a built in digital temperature sensor. Thus, when the temperature
drops below or above your ambient control, the Shade will automatically open or close to allow more or less heat in. This
design of temperature sensor motorization is the latest in new technology in the retractable Shade market.
