Increasing natural light into a room seems to be an ever growing trend for home owners and one of the best ways to get the sunlight into an interior room of the house is with a skylight. But what do you do when you wish to diminish the light coming in? The sun does not have a remote that you can turn on and off. In many cases a skylight is too high to reach to open or close the blinds.

What are the benefits to Remote Skylight shades?
The obvious benefit to installing motorized skylight shades is to have control over the amount of light that is let into the room. But one benefit that many do not recognize is the heating and cooling efficiency lost from a skylight. It is proven that much more heat is lost from a roof with a skylight.
With the addition of shades over the skylight you will add a barrier to keep the hot sun’s rays out when trying to keep your house cool or restrict the flow of air movement over the skylight on a cold winter’s day. The final benefit to shading your skylight is to add protection to your room and flooring. This is especially the case for single layered or thin plated skylight windows.
The increasingly harsh suns rays can damage your flooring and furniture with prolonged sun exposure. Just like you or I can get a sunburn with too much sun, our furnishing can become discolored or even burnt.
With the addition of a skylight window treatment you can ensure your rooms belongings will be protected from the magnifying suns rays.
