3 Helpful Tips to Increase Natural Lighting in Your Home

As most of us spend more time indoors staring at laptops and mobile phones, experts have proven that being outside has a positive effect on you. The more sunlight we are exposed to, the more serotonin we produce. This is proof that making the most of daylight from our homes is essential. Here are a few ways to effectively increase natural lighting.

3 Helpful Tips to Increase Natural Lighting in Your Home

1. Make Use of Sun Tunnels

Sun tunnels are a great addition to areas of your home where minimal to no light is visible. These are ideal as they channel sunlight from your roof, down a highly reflective tube into the specific room below. Note that these can be installed on a pitched roof or a flat roof to welcome daylight into rooms where it’s most beneficial.

2. Skylights Installation

The biggest benefit of skylights is how they let natural light into your space. And with that light comes solar heat. Heating your place with sunlight can save on your heating costs during the winter months. This can also let the fresh air in so you won’t have to worry about opening all your doors and windows when it’s too warm.

3. Try Changing Your Windows

Increase the natural illumination by utilizing larger windows like bay or casement windows. You may also consider custom windows to match your home. This makeover would allow you to let in a greater amount of light as well as ventilation inside your place.To learn more about our replacement windows or to start a conversation with an experienced design team for your future projects, call Renewal by Andersen® of St Louis at (314) 332-2364, or fill out our contact form.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
