The Health Benefits of Natural Daylight

As soon as the nation enjoys a spate of pleasant weather, it is clear to see the positive impact that the sunshine has on our moods.

With countless data supporting the advantages of natural daylight, we delve in and take a closer look at why natural light is proven to be more beneficial than artificial lighting.

Increase Efficiency

Ensuring the right level and quality of light can have an impact on mood and performance.

There is a significant amount of evidence linking the levels of natural lighting to improved eye and brain function. This better response to natural light leads to an improvement in performance and an increase in individuals’ success.

Staying In Synch

Our bodies require an appropriate amount of light at the correct intensity and at the right time of day to act as cues for our internal body clocks.

Whether it is light in the morning to assist us to wake up and feel energised or dimmer light in the evening to help us wind down, natural light helps our bodies stay in synch and keep our internal body.

Well-being

Exposure to sunlight has a proven ability to impact upon our well-being, making us feel a lot happier. This is due to the resulting release of the hormone serotonin.

Known as the “happy hormone”, serotonin is regarded by many health professionals as something which helps maintain mood balance. It is also thought that the hormone affects numerous other physical and mental functions including social behaviour, appetite and digestion, sleep and memory.

The Impact of Vitamin D

The main source of Vitamin D is the sun, and it is crucial for good health and well-being.

It is produced in the skin with the help of daylight and has many functions, including reducing the risk and improving resistance to disease and helping keep your immune system functioning properly.

It is also a vital hormone for growth.

Health

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a clinically diagnosed condition whereby a lack of natural daylight makes people feel unwell.

Flooding the environment with as much natural daylight as possible helps to reduce the likelihood of an onset of this condition.

The Pitfalls Of Artificial Lighting

Too much artificial light can have a negative impact on individuals and is linked to a decrease in the hormone melatonin.

Melatonin is produced in the brain between approximately 9pm and 8am, depending on the individual’s sleep patterns. It is crucial in helping to regulate our daily body clock, and when levels of the hormone are disrupted they can affect an individual both physically and mentally.

Examples of this can include:

  • Our ability to have a good night’s sleep
  • How clear we’re able to think
  • The timing and release of various hormones throughout the body
  • The regulation of glucose and blood pressure levels

A consistent lack of sleep also increases the risk of developing more long-lasting (chronic) health conditions such as diabetes and depression.

Eco-friendly

Natural sunlight is a brighter, far cleaner and more eco-friendly source of power.

Securing a large amount of natural daylight in your homes guarantees you are not only saving money but also reducing energy consumption.

Maximising natural lighting creates a much more pleasant environment and is closely linked to health and other benefits: a sense of well-being has been proven to be related to exposure to natural daylight, as have increased productivity levels.

Bring The Outside In

Not only does the installation of rooflights in your home or workplace offer the broad scope to add style and a contemporary feel to your space; maximising natural light also has countless benefits of its own.

EOS Rooflights have the ability to capture light no matter where the sun is positioned and what time of day it is, unlike windows or vertical glazing.

Filling spaces with natural lighting certainly looks attractive, but it will also have a positive impact on the individual enjoying that space.

Recently purchased an electric roof light from EOS. Very happy with the finished product, study and functions very well. It also looks very stylish. I received excellent customer service from EOS at all stages, they couldn't have been more helpful. Highly recommended.

Very professional customer support / sales team. Dealt with our roof light enquiry quickly and kept me updated on transit and delivery. Will be purchasing roof lights from them again when our projects require them.

EOS Rooflights were knowledgable in their field, very helpful and the products (Roof Lantern and Flat glass roof lights) were of a good quality. The Roof lights were easily installed and full installation instructions were supplied for those who are installing for the first time. Would recommend.

Very efficient with processing my order and delivery. I ordered a 3M roof lantern and a smaller flat roof light. Both were simple to install on my own upstands and they both look great. My only negative was the cost was a lot for what they are but I don’t think eos are excessively expensive, I think the roof lanterns themselves are what’s pricey. Anyhow I’m happy 😃

EOS were brilliant all through the consultation/sales process and delivery. The skylight looks great and works a treat with the electronic switch. Their after-care support was also very helpful and patient when we mistakenly thought we had an issue. Would highly recommend them.

As a company we have used EOS for some time. We use the EOS Rooflight Flexi Lid product a lot and also the EOS Smoke Vent Rooflight AOV on our projects. We cannot fault the company for the service, communication and value for money.

Excellent products, great customer service and post sales support! Unfortunately the courier damaged our roof lights slightly, however EOS went above and beyond to rectify! Special mention to Natalie O’Hara in ops, she was so helpful, prompt and a real pleasure to deal with! Highly recommend EOS!

The rooflights are a key feature externally of the property as they are prominent on the flat roof. They are angled by 15 degrees to allow the south facing sun to enter the house maximising natural light and also utilising any solar gain. The majority are triple glazed, with a couple of larger opening lights being double glazed. Internally they provide so much light and the light shafts are a characteristic of the internal architecture given that there are 15 within the house. The ordering and supply process was straightforward and installing them worked well with the pre-made upstands. All in all a very satisfactory and successful decision to select Eos rooflights.

I was after rooflights with laminated glass and of good quality! I contacted EOS after seeing and viewing their products. They fitted the requirements. The service was first rate, nothing was a problem and the drawings to work before delivery excellent. Would highly recommend.

The team at ESO's are really helpful and friendly. The customer service is excellent, with prompt replies and a wealth of knowledge. The delivery was tricky with restricted space and a lot of rooflights, EOS's made this process run smoothly. Would definitely recommend ESO. Very happy with the product and the company.
