The Benefits of Natural Lighting
We all learned in health class that sunlight is our body’s number one source of Vitamin D. Well technically, this isn’t entirely true because our body can produce this vitamin naturally. However, it’s important to note that sunlight is needed to catalyze this process. Vitamin D is essential for healthy bones and has been proven to reduce the risk of certain cancers. Sunlight has also been linked to healthier mental states and improved sleeping habits.
Maximizing Natural Lighting
Daylighting is an industry term that refers to planning the placement of windows so that more natural light is allowed to enter a particular room. The whole process includes choosing the type and style of both your windows and its glazing.
Different types of glass and window treatments are all major factors in controlling the amount of sunlight that penetrates your home. You also want to choose the right positioning so that the healthiest rays of the morning help warm and illuminate your home while keeping you protected against the harsh afternoon sun.
