There is a lot to love about having a skylight in your home. The natural light it offers and extra warmth in the winter time are just a couple of the great advantages that quickly come to mind.
However, in the summer time, especially in warm climates, a skylight can be a portal of extra heat and light that can not only make your house hotter, but the UV rays from the sun shining through the skylight can damage flooring, furniture and more.
Here at SolarScreenOutlet.com, we often get customers looking for a way to solve their skylight problem. Often, people want the benefits of the skylight (ie natural light, reduced power bill), but want to eliminate the drawbacks. A skylight solar screen is a great way to go.
Here’s how you can make it happen. If you have a way to measure your skylight, measure the width and height of the glass portion only. Jot down those measurements and head over to our Custom Size Solar Screen Fabric page. Choose 80% or 90% (most customers like the added heat blocking that comes with the 90% solar screen fabric).
On that page, enter in your width and height measurements. Then, choose your screen color. Below that, you’ll choose your mounting option. We recommend using suction cups to mount the solar screen directly to the glass on your skylight.
The installation is quick and easy and when you’re done, you’ll still have some natural light coming through the skylight, but the heat and glare will be virtually eliminated.
