Skylight windows are popular in homes throughout the Ft. Myers area, and are a stylish way to brighten up a room and give it a more open and airy feeling. Skylights have both pros and cons. While they let in a lot of natural light, that’s not always a good thing. Too much direct sunlight can let in too much heat, and the direct UV light can damage the interior of your home. Depending on the location of your skylight, they may work just fine without any covering on them. Sometimes, though, skylights allow way too much sunlight in and can decrease the energy efficiency of your home.
Skylight Shades Control Light
When you need a window covering for your skylights, look to the leaders in window treatment innovation — Hunter Douglas! The Hunter Douglas Window Treatments Simplicity™ skylight system is made specifically for honeycomb shades in skylights. Use this operating system with Duette® Architella® honeycomb shades, Duette® honeycomb shades and Applause® honeycomb shades. Choose from a large variety of colors and styles, as well as three hardware colors: Aspen White, Gardenia White, and Bronze
How to Operate Skylight Shades
Opening and closing your skylight shades is easy. Use the Duette Skylift operating system to manually open and close your shades with manual operation using a hand crank or telescoping pole. Or, for added convenience, use Duette Skylife with PowerRise® with Platinum™ technology. This remote control option allows you to raise or lower your hard-to-reach honeycomb shades from up to 40 feet away. Motorizing your skylight shades allows you to easily control natural lighting and dramatically reduce overheating from too much direct sunlight.
Skylight shades offer a solution to the problem of increased energy consumption and damaged flooring and furnishings. Skylight shades allow you to close the shade during the hottest parts of the day or during the time of year when you don’t want additional heat in your house. The double honeycomb cellular construction helps insulate your home against the sun’s heat and helps you lower your energy costs, which is an important consideration here in Florida.
