The Eneref Report discusses the benefits of using operable skylights in residential sunrooms to decrease HVAC energy usage during summer and lighting energy consumption during winter. It highlights how venting skylights can improve indoor air quality by expelling heat and toxins, while also maximizing natural daylight capture. The study examines the advantages and challenges of employing ventilating skylights in sunrooms as a measure to mitigate global warming. The residential sunroom market, valued at over $2 billion annually in the United States, experienced a boost due to increased demand during the Covid-19 pandemic. The use of operable skylights in sunrooms enhances energy efficiency, lowers energy costs, and promotes better air quality, with potential benefits to resale value and sustainability efforts. The report also dispels misconceptions about leaks associated with properly installed operable skylights and emphasizes their positive impact in mitigating climate change.
