Most skylights were not built for energy efficiency. Learn how an energy-efficient skylight insert from LeafGuard by Midlands Home Solutions can reduce energy loss, while bringing more light into the space.
Skylights are great features, providing natural light and beautiful skyscape views in rooms that would otherwise feel dark and cramped. But they do impose comfort and energy penalties in exchange for these benefits. In the winter, the skylight's broad expanse of cold glass cools the interior air, making you feel chilly enough to turn up the heat.
On a sunny summer day, the opposite effect occurs, making you wish for a shade to cut down on heat gain. A skylight that has a deep "well" or tunnel will often have even greater comfort and energy issues, since these wells usually have little or no insulation to protect you from uncomfortable attic temperatures.

Avoid an energy penalty. By installing a low-e glass insert in a skylight well, you can avoid heat loss in winter and unwanted heat gain during the summer.
If you want to enjoy the benefits of your skylights without enduring the discomfort they cause, LeafGuard by Midlands Home Solutions has the solution you're looking for. We install high-performance window panels along with the proper trim and weather stripping to hold the glass in place beneath skylights. In effect, you're getting a "storm window" for your skylight.
Our treatment doesn't diminish the light or views coming from the skylight; it just makes the installation much more comfortable and energy efficient. The low-e coating on our glass inserts reflects heat, helping you stay warmer in winter and cooler in hot, summer weather.
If your skylight is installed at the top of a skylight well that extends from a flat ceiling, we'll install the insulating glass panel flush with the flat ceiling. Otherwise (in a cathedral ceiling, for example), the new glass panel is installed as close as possible to the bottom of the rafter level. We carefully choose the right trim and weather stripping for an attractive, well-functioning installation.
Don't let winter chills or excessive summer heat gain prevent you from enjoying your skylights. Call LeafGuard by Midlands Home Solutions for a free estimate on this affordable energy-saving upgrade. We are your resource for proper skylight installation throughout Nebraska and Iowa, including Sioux City, Lincoln, Omaha, Grand Island, Bellevue, Council Bluffs, Fremont, Hastings, La Vista, Kearney, and more!
