There are three types of skylights: fixed, tubular, and vented. [pictures of types of skylights]
But what are the advantages and disadvantages of skylights versus traditional lighting?
Fixed skylights are ideal for rooms needing additional light. They can provide dramatic views of the landscape depending on the placement of the light. One downside of these is that they don't provide any ventilation, which can cause condensation to build up on the fixture.
Tubular skylights are great, because they can fit into areas that otherwise wouldn't be accessible. They are fairly easy to install compared to the fixed skylights. Furthermore, they come with an adjustable tube that can be moved, allowing for light to be directed wherever needed. There is a downside, though: you can't see very well out of them due to the angles, as well as looking a bit weird on your roof line.
Vented skylights are a little different. They look just like fixed skylights, but they can be opened either manually or electrically, which allows air to get in and circulate. This also prevents condensation from forming. This is a big advantage over fixed skylights, but leaving them open is always a risk due to weather changing constantly.
So then, what are the advantages and disadvantages of skylights versus using traditional lighting?
