Let the Daylight Shine In

Now that it’s spring, you’re likely excited by the abundance of daylight. Whether inside or out, daylight has a way of enchanting the mind, soul and body. From the moment you wake up in the morning to the moment you retire in the evening, you experience the mental and physical benefits of daylight.

Solatube Tubular Daylighting Devices can help you reap these benefits in the spring and every season. By engineering daylighting systems to improve the quality of home lighting by integrating natural light, Solatube makes living better.

Why Is Spring a Time of Renewal?

Beginning on the vernal equinox, spring is a time of renewal, rebirth and rejuvenation. It’s the time when we do our spring cleaning, clearing away the clutter from our homes. It’s the season when the Northern Hemisphere gets more light from the sun. So, we do more indoor and outdoor activities, as we enjoy the weather and reap the benefits of longer days.

The ritual of springing forward one hour for daylight saving time heralds the coming of the spring and summer months for many of us. Our love of nature and the great outdoors seems to increase when we’re out in the sun. Gardening, spring cleaning, shopping and playing sports are just a few of ways we rejuvenate ourselves after a long winter.

What Are Some Benefits of Daylight?

The sun gives us the life-sustaining properties of  light. When indoors, we can see the full range of light through windows and tubular daylight devices (TDDs), designed for distributing natural light in residences and commercial buildings. Because daylight triggers the production of serotonin, we experience calming mood effects as a result. These euphoric feelings help us avoid seasonal affective disorder (SAD), which is a form of depression attributed to less exposure to sunlight.

Our exposure to daylight can also help control the debilitating effects of non-seasonal depression and premenstrual dysphoric disorder. Other benefits of daylight include soaking up vitamin D, which is great for bone health, reducing stress for mental health, and providing therapy for healthy skin. Adding sunlight to daily activities improves our quality of life and appreciation of natural light.

How Is Natural Daylight Helpful in Our Homes?

Daylight can boost our comfort and productivity levels at home. Due to its mental and visual stimulation, daylight regulates our circadian rhythms for better sleep. A naturally lit home also establishes a positive mood by minimizing energy demand. Studies show that the integration of natural lighting into our homes lowers total energy consumption and makes us happier and healthier. Interior daylighting not only helps our home decorating by optimizing visual effects but also gives therapeutic benefits. Some popular ideas for your home include daylighting kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, staircases and hallways.

How Do Solatube Products Connect Us to Nature on a Daily Basis?

Solatube, a manufacturer of TDDs, commands authority in energy-efficiency solutions around the globe. Solatube leverages its patent for daylighting systems by channeling sunlight from rooftops through reflective tubing for diffusion near ceilings. In this way, Solatube products link us to nature in the places where we need it most — in our homes and our workplaces. We bring the life-giving energy of the sun to communities.

Why Is Daylighting Essential to Our Needs?

Many of us reap the rewards of daylight, especially during the spring and summer months. We notice the changes in our activities, moods and feelings. When you use daylighting systems, you can spend more time basking in the sun in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Thus, getting daylight on a daily basis can renew the spirit, heal the body and rejuvenate the soul.
