Many homeowners are already aware of the benefits that natural light can contribute to their home’s energy efficiency and general ambiance. What makes utilizing natural light even better is that it can also help boost your productivity, regulate your mood and improve the quality of your sleep too. Here are some notes on how letting natural light into your home, through windows and doors from Renewal by Andersen® of Atlanta, can help you improve your daily life.
Productivity at Home
More and more businesses are taking note of the importance of natural light in increasing the productivity of their employees. They are implementing changes in their workplace environments to ensure that constant reliance on artificial lighting can be lessened. If you work out of your home, you can do the same by setting up your work area by a bay window or replacing your small home office windows with double-hung windows instead.
Regulate Your Mood
You can be more energetic and less likely to be affected by hormonal changes brought about by a decrease in sunlight exposure when your home is regularly filled with natural light. One way you can achieve this is by having French doors from Renewal by Andersen of Atlanta installed as patio doors. French patio doors can open your home up to promote natural ventilation and increase your exposure to natural sunlight at the same time.
Increase Sleep Quality
Regular exposure to natural light helps your body achieve a good circadian rhythm. What this means is that your body will learn to shut down at night so you can get a good night’s sleep. Artificial light does the opposite and confuses your body about when it should or shouldn’t rest. As sleep deprivation is a serious concern, prevent it by installing a casement or picture window, big enough to allow a good amount of sunlight in your bedroom.
