Sunlight can provide a variety of benefits. Unfortunately, many people spend the majority of their time indoors. That’s why our energy-efficient replacement windows in Tigard are important. Our products allow you to enjoy the benefits of sunlight without having to deal with the heat or increased energy bills.
Renewal by Andersen® of Portland explains the benefits of daylighting and the ways our products can help:
Benefits of Sunlight
Sunlight can improve the productivity of building occupants. In the study, “Daylighting in Schools: An Investigation into the Relationship between Daylighting and Human Performance”, researchers found a high correlation between increased test performance and increased daylight. Surgery patients also recovered quicker in rooms with a view and sunlight according to the Science article, “View through a Window may Influence Recovery from Surgery.”
Researchers from the National Institutes of Health noted that exposure to sunlight can boost serotonin levels. Sunlight can improve your mood, increase your productivity, and boost your creativity. To make the most of sunlight properly, have us install our replacement windows in West Linn. Our windows all come standard with High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. This glass can reflect a significant amount of heat away from your home. This means you can enjoy the benefits of sunlight without worrying about discomfort or increased energy bills.
Strategies to Improve Daylighting
Aside from using our windows, you can consider other daylighting strategies. Create balance by placing windows in two different directions, allowing sunlight to reach all corners of the room. Placing your windows higher on the wall also leads to more even light. In addition, control glare by choosing our High-Performance Low-E4 Sun™ glass and by using window treatments. You can also use mirrors to diffuse sunlight around the room strategically.
Daylighting can brighten your interior, improve your mood and productivity, and save you money on energy bills.
