For a larger scale green renovations, skylights for homes provide another great energy saving feature.  When building an eco friendly house remember to utilize a passive solar design in which strategically place windows, skylights, sun tunnels and overhangs take advantage of the sun’s heat and light.  In these house plans windows, walls and floors are designed to collect, store and distribute solar energy through heat in the winter and reject it in the summer to keep the spaces cool. To bring this energy efficient building technique into your own home, consider investing in eco friendly solutions such as popular evacuated solar tubes.  These energy saving devices are cylinders installed in the roof to bring natural light through the ceiling into spaces below rather than relying on normal bulbs.  For even more tips on saving energy at home, check out our solar skylight reviews to find the most cost effective and environmentally efficient products for your space.
