The many benefits of using daylight in buildings

Daylight has been used for centuries as the primary source of light in interiors and has been an implicit part of architecture for as long as buildings have existed. Not only does it replace electric light during daytime, reducing energy use for lighting, it also influences both heating and cooling loads, which makes it an important parameter of an energy efficient design. Additionally, recent research has proved that daylight provides an array of health and comfort benefits that make it essential for buildings’ occupants.
