Amplifying Natural Light in Your Home

At Lindus Construction, we’re a fan of natural light for a multitude of reasons such as lower energy bills (up to 40% of your home’s energy use comes from artificial lighting), boosting mood & energy and its ability to make everything look better.  With the weather turning colder and the days getting shorter, we thought we’d offer some ways to increase the natural light in your home.

Skylights: They come in a variety of sizes including square, triangle, oval, etc. They are a great way to evenly distribute natural light, eliminate direct sunlight & hot spots and add aesthetic appeal to your home.  The federal government is currently offering tax credits of up to 30% on skylights.  Companies such as VELUX even offer battery powered skylights that have rain sensors that automatically close the unit upon detection of rain.skylight

Room Layout:  Keep furniture away from windows to allow for maximum sun infiltration into your home.

Reflective Surfaces: The more reflective surfaces you have in your home, the greater the chances of sunlight boomeranging around the room.  This can mean adding mirrors, cabinets with glass fronts and white paint to your walls, cabinets and ceiling.  It’s surprising to know that matte paints do a better job of reflecting than glossy ones.

Windows: No one enjoys cleaning windows, but a little Windex can go a long way to brighten up a room!  Shear window treatments are better at allowing sunlight to filter through than opaque ones.

Explore Window Installation: 

Sun Room: Adding a sun room allows you to bring natural lighting and warmth into your home and you can’t go wrong with the additional space to relax & entertain.

Doors: If you have a front door that currently does not have a window, switching it out for one that does is an easy way to bring more natural light into your home.  French doors also allow for  sunlight to filter in between rooms.

Sun Tunnels: Located on your roof, they are optically engineered to capture light through a high impact dome on the roof.  Light rays travel through a highly reflective tunnel, transmitting a pure natural light with no color shift. The diffuser assembly at the ceiling distributes natural light evenly into the room while limiting bright spots and glare.

"Pete and I were extremely happy with the work and the quality of the windows. It was also reassuring to hear the building inspector state he would only consider 2 contractors to work on his house, and Lindus was one of them! In fact he has already contracted with you for new siding on his house next summer."

"First of all, the explanation given by the sales rep could not have been more thorough. He spoke well and was very professional and knowledgeable. The predicted date of construction was kept and the workers knew what they were doing paying attention to every detail. The quality of the windows and door is tops! The "porch" or 3-seasons room is now ready to heat and use."

"I just had a beautiful SeasonGuard bay window installed by Lindus and a bedroom window.  I have Chris coming out this coming week and he's going to measure for the other window in the living room.  I'm so pleased; I love both the interior and the exterior.  The main thing is that it's kept all of this cold air out this winter.  Thank you so much!"

"Everything went according to schedule---earlier, in fact. The window installers were respectful of our property, courteous, personable, and hard working. We are very happy with our results and would hire Lindus again in a minute!"

"We had a couple of our windows replaced with Lindus Construction. They were prompt and very quick. They sent out two crews to get the work done (it was a very cold day).  We also are doing more work with them, and we received a call from the scheduler to let us know they hadn't forgotten about us, but the work couldn't be done until the temps got warmer - good communication!"
