Skylight Shades Provide Light Control

Skylight ShadesAs a stylish way to bring more light into a room, skylights are popular in homes throughout the Baltimore area. While the extra light can brighten up your decor, too much light can be a bad thing for both the interior of your home and energy usage. Too much direct sunlight can let in too much heat, and the direct UV light can damage the interior of your home. When this becomes a problem, skylight shades can help you enjoy the benefits of your skylight while mitigating UV damage and energy loss.

Skylight shades offer a solution to the problem of increased energy consumption and damaged flooring and furnishings by allowing you to close the shade during the hottest parts of the day or during the time of year when you don’t want additional heat in your house. The double honeycomb cellular construction helps insulate your home against the sun’s heat and helps you lower your energy costs, which is an important consideration here in Maryland.
