Seasonal affective disorder and the milder, more common winter blues impact a lot of people in the South Shore, MA. These conditions crop up when the daylight hours start getting shorter and there’s less natural daylight in the home or workplace.
It’s entirely possible to spend a lot of money on wonderful lights that attempt to replicate full spectrum natural daylight. Technology is wonderful and we think these lights are great. But it’s also important that we look at the environments we live in with a critical eye and say how can we optimize this space to achieve a happier, healthier experience for everyone?
Let’s talk about window installation. Many South Shore homes, especially if you’re living in a relatively new development, share a tendency to have too few windows. In our role as a window and door company, we primarily hear about too few windows in the kitchen, too few windows in the family room, and, surprisingly, too few windows in the master bedroom.
Window installation involves having a new window – or several new windows – installed in your home. This is generally a relatively simple upgrade, although work will need to be done both on the interior and exterior of your home.
Benefits of New Window Installation
When installing windows with the goal of boosting the amount of natural daylight into the home, your local window contractor will work with you to determine the ideal location and type of window. If you’d like windows to let in ambient light without compromising your family’s privacy, there are special tinted and specialty glass options available.
There are additional benefits of new window installation. New windows boost a home’s curb appeal and resale value. Additionally, new windows are highly energy efficient, so they can create a beautiful home without unduly impacting home heating and cooling costs.
