Can I reduce my energy bills by using Skylight Shades?
The cells of Graber Blackout Cellular Skylight Shades trap air in them to form an effective barrier between the temperature outside the window and the temperature in the room, thus maintaining a stable, comfortable thermal environment for your family and guests. Can you imagine how much you’d save on energy bills if your air conditioning didn’t have to work as hard to combat the scorching hot weather?
The layer of air also dampens sound waves, helping to create a peaceful interior environment conducive to privacy, work, and sound sleep.

If a skylight shade is installed improperly, it may leak light or not insulate properly. But at ZebraBlinds, you will get the best products, and we guarantee our products against any manufacturer defects.
What does a new skylight cost?

Can I block out light through Skylight Window Coverings?
Yes, you can block out the excess light through your skylight window coverings. The shades are available in both light filtering and blackout options. The light filtering fabrics will help you control the light that enters your home, blocking direct sunlight but still allowing it to softly illuminate your room. The blackout shades will restrict the light completely and give you complete privacy and darkness for yourself. All skylight shades will give you greater control over the light, so it doesn’t overwhelm you with direct sun, glare, and harmful UV rays.
Use sky poles to help you open and close these window treatments, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the sunlight whenever you want to.
How to Operate Skylight Window Coverings?
The answer depends on where your skylights are and how often you plan to make adjustments. If you want the filtered light to fill your spaces with a warm glow, then you may leave your shades in the same position most of the time.

For rooms where you’ll want to adjust your skylight shades on a more regular basis, then motorized blinds are a perfect choice. You can operate them from anywhere in your room. You can even program your shades to operate on a schedule. And you can enjoy the benefits of your skylights without even thinking about them.
Are Skylight window coverings safe for kids and pets?
A motorized skylight blind does not have any cords, so it is safe for the home with children and the pets. That is the reason we strongly recommend motorized products.
Does a skylight shade block heat in the summer?
A skylight shade that has the proper fabric and is sized correctly will never let too much heat into the home. Many light filtering products are designed to let the light in but block the harmful UV rays that can cause heat gain and interior damage.
According to the Department of Energy, a typical roof skylight loses 35 -40% more heat than a comparable vertical window or a window that is installed on the side of a house. Skylight shades can help with this as well by adding insulation to your skylights
