Abundant daylighting is the benefit of energy-efficient windows and patio doors that doesn’t get talked about enough. The availability of natural light may be unpredictable sometimes, but the right products can help you catch as much sun as you can.
For starters, Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas shares some of the advantages of getting more sunlight inside your home:
Lowering Energy Bills
If your indoor spaces are naturally airy because of windows and patio doors, then use artificial lighting that much. Although slashing your energy consumption for heating and cooling would reduce your utility bills on a bigger scale, the savings you could gain from keeping your bulbs off shouldn’t be taken for granted.
Making Vitamin D
It’s no secret that sunlight exposure at optimum times of the day is healthy to your body. One of its many health benefits is vitamin D production. When sunshine touches your bare skin, the contact activates your body to create this essential mineral, which you could otherwise only get from taking supplements.
Adequate vitamin D is vital for developing strong bones and teeth. It also useful in immune system regulation, body weight maintenance, brain function, asthma symptom control, and diabetes management.
Setting the Mood
Window size, location, and orientation are critical in producing the mood of each room. Depending on light intensity, you can make certain home areas energizing or calming. Either way, controlling the amount of natural light you get through your windows and patio doors lets you create an ideal indoor environment.
Keeping Indoors Mold-Free
Did you know that mold hates sunlight? Letting more sun in naturally discourages mold growth to make your rooms healthier.
At Renewal by Andersen of Kansas, our windows and patio doors use an advanced glazing to filter out unwanted solar rays and let in visible light. Despite the excellent energy ratings of our glass options, they don’t affect the clarity and color of the light. In turn, you can enjoy clearer views and brighter light.
