Skylights and Lightning ProtectionIf you love natural daylight, there’s no better way to get it than through a window in your roof.
Conventional skylights are as small as two feet by two feet and as large as eight feet by eight feet. You can put them in any room that connects to your roof, although kitchens are by far the most popular place for them.
A big skylight in your ceiling can have a dramatic effect on the room. If you choose clear glass, you can look out the skylight and see the clouds. If you prefer a softer, diffused light, go with white glass. You also can choose acrylic, although glass is more energy efficient.
And keep energy efficiency in mind when you choose your skylights. Where there’s light, there’s heat, so the larger the skylight, the more hot sunshine gets into your room. Beat the heat by investing in a manual or motorized shade or a heat blocker that you attach like a shower cap to the outside of the skylight during the summer.
