How to winterize skylights?
Hello....... My 23-y-o house in NJ is supposedly a passive solar house, but I believe it's situated incorrectly on the lot. . Therefore, I have a huge atrium facing east and another north. There is not one window on the south side.
We have 3 doors and 4 windows facing full west.
Anyway, every winter it's the same thing....cold air dropping from the skylights onto the sofa in the living room and cold air dropping into our bedroom. I lower the shades, but it definitely is not enough.
I don't want to totally block the light because the sun coming in during a winter day is wonderful. Can anyone suggest a method to trap the cold night air. For that matter, stop the hot summer air too!
The predicted gas prices for this winter are too scary to not address this and I'm tired of wearing multiple sweaters and blankets while watching tv!
