Daylighting is one of the best ways homeowners can allow natural light to enter their homes. In fact, the right daylighting methods can help you improve your home’s energy efficiency by reducing your reliance on artificial lighting. Unfortunately, daylighting does have its own drawbacks: it can increase your home’s solar heat gain and glare, driving up your cooling bills as a result. Luckily, by properly incorporating daylighting into your home with your windows, you can get around this fairly easily.
In this post, Renewal by Andersen® of Atlanta, the experts to approach if you want to install casement windows in your home, shares a few daylighting tips.
Eliminate Glare and Redirect Light
As stated before, one of the issues that daylighting can bring to your home is excessive glare and this can make watching TV or using the computer difficult for homeowners. Once excessive glare enters a home, homeowners will be forced to close the blinds, eliminating the benefits of daylighting entirely. Thankfully, it is possible to eliminate the glare that enters your windows when incorporating daylighting; simply add an upper and lower glazing on your windows. That way, you can control the amount of sunlight that enters your home.

Install Quality Windows
Apart from eliminating glare and redirecting light, consider replacing your old windows with quality ones to efficiently incorporate daylighting into your home. However, when picking a new window, don’t just choose the first one you see; instead, take a good look at the visual light transmittance values of the product first and pick the one that allows an ample amount of light through while still controlling glare and solar heat gain at the same time.
