It’s a well-known fact that natural light has many positive effects on your health, so it makes sense to include it when you’re planning a windows installation project for your home. With daytime hours getting shorter as we approach the winter season, it pays to find ways of maximizing what limited sunlight we get every day.——————————————– CONTINUE READING ——————————————–Read on as our window specialists at Renewal by Andersen® of Long Island explain the advantages of good natural lighting and show you ways how our replacement window products can help.Improving Health and Well-beingSunlight stimulates your body’s production of Vitamin D, which has been linked to healthier bones and skin. It’s also known to reduce risks of heart disease and certain cancers. The good news is it doesn’t matter whether you’re getting your daily dose of sunshine by being outdoors or through replacement windows in your home. The amount of sunlight you get also helps ward off the effects of SAD, or Seasonal Affective Disorder, which is caused by the decrease in daylight around wintertime.How Windows Can HelpIf you’re due for some replacement windows, consider moving them to more optimal positions. Living room windows are best positioned facing west to help brighten it up in the afternoons when this room is most active. You also want your bedroom windows facing east. Sunlight helps with balancing your body’s internal clock, waking you up in the mornings and promoting healthier sleeping habits.Maximizing Your SunshineKeep your windows clean and free of any obstruction to allow as much light from the sun. Choose styles that have large glass areas like picture, casement, and sliding windows to get the most benefits. Make sure your windows are protected by a low-E coating, which allows light to pass through but keeps the heat out.Our professionals at Renewal By Andersen of Long Island can help you plan out your replacement windows to maximize the amount of sunshine your home gets.
