Natural light has been the focal point of many home improvement projects, and for good reason. Numerous studies have shown that it is beneficial to health and mental well-being, as well as a free source of illumination that does not require consuming electricity. The amount of natural light a home has is actually one of the top selling points in the real estate industry.
With all its advantages, it’s natural to let as much daylight in your home as possible. Choosing the right kind of windows and doors, therefore, is an essential step toward this direction. Read on as our window experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Kansas City show you the benefits of natural lighting and the role replacement windows and doors play in maximizing this resource.
Vitamin D Production
Stepping outside your doors and into the sunlight has been known to boost vitamin D levels in your body. Sunlight doesn’t actually give you this vitamin but it does trigger its production in your body. Vitamin D has been linked to stronger bones and reduced risks of cholesterol and cancer.
“Winter blues” is actually an observed phenomenon known as seasonal affective disorder. It’s mostly prevalent in winter and fall when people experience less sunshine everyday. Increasing natural lighting in your home through the right kind of replacement windows can help stave off the effects of this disorder.
Improved Energy Efficiency
The glazing used in many Renewal by Andersen® replacement windows and doors are designed to allow as much healthy sunlight as possible. Normally, this means heating up your interiors but a special Low-E® coating prevents solar heat gain without sacrificing natural lighting.
