Getting the right amount of daylight is essential for health and well being; it improves moods and helps fight SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). We may not have to worry about SAD while living in Canada’s sunniest province, but all the more reason to take full advantage of this natural mood booster!
The vertical windows on your home are wonderful, but a window on the roof can deliver 2x more natural light and are a great option for homes with houses on either side, or that face north. Enter skylights, roof windows and sun tunnels.
