Getting some air in here. Just as natural sun is good for your mood, ventilation is good for your health. An Energy Star qualified venting skylight is a great way to passively vent stale, moist air from inside the home, especially from baths and kitchens. While some skylights are fixed those that do open can be controlled by a remote to open when you want fresh air and close when you to retain warmth. They can also close automatically in case of rain. In addition, they introduce free light into your home. Adding blinds, also remote controlled, can help better control the amount of light coming into the home. Compared to other venting solutions a skylight is a relatively low-cost, great-looking way to address ventilation issues while adding drama to space.
