Benefits Of Owning A Skylight

skylight in a homeHave you ever considered having a skylight installed in your home? You probably like the idea, if just because they add a certain aesthetic value and we could all use a little more sun. In fact, they come with a host of other benefits. If you’d like to know more about them, we’ve listed a few here.



Obviously, when you have natural sunlight entering your house, you won’t have to waste energy on electrical lights. Not only does this reduce pollution, but it will even lower your energy bills to save you cash.


Did you know that when you reach age 60, you require more light to see as well as you did when younger? Sometimes electrical light just doesn’t cut it, but sunlight always will.


Our population has skyrocketed in recent times. Homes get built closer and closer together. Because of this, privacy becomes a big issue. The perfect way to retain it without losing access to sunlight involves building a skylight instead of windows. 


Did these pique your interest in skylights? If so, you might want to consider having one installed. If you do have one, but need repair services, Armstrong’s Glass & Mirror can help. To find out more about us, please give us a call at (817) 937-6267.

About Low E-Glass

low e-glassMost glass probably seems the same to the layman. In reality, this doesn’t hold true. Glass making proves an extremely intricate discipline. One of the relatively recent innovations in the field includes low e-glass (low emissivity glass). We’ll tell you a little bit more about how it works and some of its benefits here.


How it works:

Low e-glass has one big difference from traditional glass; it has an extremely thin (microscopic) layer, usually made of a metal material, coated on it that reflects certain wavelengths of light. This gives it a few different advantages over a regular glass window.


The reason most people choose low-e glass involves the lower energy costs in their home. They help reduce midday heat gain by reflecting certain wavelengths.


If you want to experience these benefits for yourself, Armstrong’s Glass & Mirror offers low-e glass window installation. We also have a host of other services available. If you’d like to learn more about this, don’t hesitate to give us a call at (817) 937-6267.
