    The Benefits of Daylight

    Daylighting is the process of bringing natural light into interior spaces through the use of skylights, reflective tubes, and other technologies. The benefits of daylight are enormous—not only does the use of daylighting technology reduce energy costs and carbon emissions, the lasting impact on human health, wellness, and productivity are incredibly significant.

    Daylighting Can Improve Well-Being

    Numerous studies have shown the positive impact of increased exposure to natural light on the health and well-being of the general public. Our body’s circadian system is directly linked to our exposure to light, with bright light suppressing melatonin production and increasing alertness. Our circadian rhythms play a critical role in regulating our body’s mood, hormones, sleep function, and our ability to heal ourselves and fight disease.

    Daylighting Will Increase Productivity and Customer Experiences

    By bringing natural daylight to interior spaces, Daylight Specialists can help clients enhance employee productivity, improve customer experiences, and support the health and well-being of anyone living, working, studying, shopping, or being treated in those spaces. From schools and offices to healthcare clinics and retail outlets, introducing daylight to interior spaces benefits everyone.

    Daylighting Can Increase the Value of Your Commercial Property

    Daylighting also reduces a building’s carbon footprint and lowers energy expenses related to lighting and electricity. Furthermore, buildings with green technologies like daylighting boast higher real estate and rental values and have less vacant spaces, overall.

    “LEED” By Example with Daylighting

    Green buildings are the way of the future, and daylighting solutions can help meet the needs of LEED certification, B3 building standards, and other green structure requirements. Our team is well versed in the complex codes and requirements for these standards, so you don’t have to be. Contact us today and tell us your needs and goals – let us figure out the best solutions for you.

    Consultation + Design

    At Daylight Specialists, our process begins with an initial consultation, during which you will learn about multiple daylighting solutions, pricing, and design options. Our experts will listen to your vision, offering ideas and feedback to support your goals.

    Through the consultation stage, we will answer your questions, provide opinions and solutions, and an honest and detailed estimate of costs. When you’re ready to move into design, our specialists use proprietary software to create an accurate model that guides us in recommending the best products for optimal daylighting, based on your site location, as well as its size and orientation.

    As a collaborative process, the design phase involves working with you to plan layout, performance calculations, building and energy code support, and budgeting assistance.

    Project Management + Installation

    Once your products have been selected and the design phase is complete, we can begin installation. Our certified installation experts will assist you with all aspects of the process with an emphasis on expert project management to ensure that every aspect of your project goes smoothly.

    We pride ourselves on providing timely, quality installations in a safe, professional manner. In addition to installing beautiful, affordable, highly effective daylighting systems, our aim is to create the most seamless process possible for every person involved.
