Your windows are a valuable asset to your home. After all, they enhance your home’s energy efficiency, add to your home’s character, and let in natural light into your home for comfort which can be achieved through the use of daylighting. While it looks like a simple concept on paper, it requires a considerable amount of planning to be executed perfectly. In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Phoenix, the top window replacement expert shares three tips to maximize your home’s daylighting.
Organize Your Living Room
When you can’t maximize daylighting in your home, you might assume that the problem lies in your windows. However, there are times it can be solved by simply rearranging the way your furniture is placed. Take a look at your windows and see if there’s anything obstructing the light from passing through. Make sure that you move them out of the way, including tall appliances such as televisions or air conditioning units, and even plants. Afterwards, you might even notice you’ll have more space than you initially realized.
Use High-Quality Windows
Just because your windows let in a tremendous amount of sunlight doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ve succeeded at daylighting. Remember that too much sunlight can be uncomfortable as this can cause glare and too much heat in your home, which will make it uncomfortable. When getting a window replacement, make sure that they have the proper treatments and coatings to diffuse the light that passes through them and ensure that your living space is comfortable.
Another important factor to consider is your local climate, home’s design and orientation as this can make or break daylighting. To improve daylighting you can split the position of your windows to let light through the top glazing, and use the bottom half to view the outside.
