It boils down to the basics of heat: more natural light leads to warmer temperatures, thanks to the sun’s energy. That being said, good lighting is essential for any home to feel comfortable and, well, like ‘home’. Balancing function, comfort, and style is often a top priority for the homeowners we work with, and not only offers a pick-me-up for resident’s moods, but also added health benefits. But, too much light can counteract your HVAC system’s constant mission to adequately heat or cool your space, which is why zoning your system may be the best option based on how you prioritize natural light in your home.
If an area of your home receives more natural light than another, it may be a good idea to consult with our heating and cooling experts at JM Heating & Cooling to see if zoning your HVAC system is feasible and would be advantageous to your efficiency goals. A room well-lit via sunlight will more easily reach a proper heat temperature and therefore require less airflow in the space overall, whereas heating a basement that lacks natural light would take more work on behalf of your HVAC system.
