Stay Happy & Healthy – With Skylights!

Long before Edison’s 1879 invention of the electric light bulb, our ancestors rose with the sun and slept at dark. Our bodies are attuned to this rhythm, and crave daylight. A skylight or sun tunnel for your Naples home can do more than provide a little reading light—it can lower your electricity usage, decrease your carbon footprint, and help you feel healthier.

Benefits of Skylights

The U.S. Department of Energy’s website,, points out that “A skylight can provide your home with daylighting and ventilation. When properly selected and installed, an energy-efficient skylight can help minimize your heating, cooling, and lighting costs.”

Specific benefits:

  • According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, we spend about 14 percent of our electricity budget on lighting; a skylight can significantly lower your electric bill by keeping lights off and letting daylight in
  • Ventilating skylights can allow heat to escape your Naples home naturally, by convection, which helps to lower cooling costs
  • Options on skylights, such as shades, solar trackers and blinds, can prevent glare and soften indoor light naturally
  • Increased exposure to natural sunlight helps your body produce Vitamin D, essential for many body processes from bone strengthening to organ function
  • Your body’s suprachiasmatic nucleus, the region of your brain that sets your sleeping and waking rhythm, receives cues from natural daylight and is disrupted by artificial light; this disruption can lead to poor memory and ruined sleep

Professional Installation of Skylights

Many Floridians remember with disgust the shoddy skylights of decades past, when materials were poor, installation was quick, and leaks were frequent. Those days are long gone thanks to modern, energy-efficient, weather-tight skylights professionally installed by Kelly Roofing.

Skylight products are manufactured today to be leakproof and to meet the federal Energy Star performance guidelines. When the expert technicians at Kelly Roofing install either a sun tunnel or a full skylight in the roof of your Naples home, you will see plenty of daylight—and no water—coming in. You will not lose heat or cooling through the skylight thanks to glazing techniques and insulation.

Naples receives more than 13 hours of daylight at the summer solstice, June 20, but still receives 10.5 hours on the shortest day, December 21.  That is a lot of free indoor light!
