Let in natural light into your homes by adding windows and save money on artificial lighting costs. Daylight optimization can lower your electricity use by 15%. North- and south-facing windows are your best daylighting bet, since they let in lots of even daylight. East- and west-facing windows provide more daylight in the morning and evening, but cause more glare. They don’t help with temperature regulation during the hot and cold months. Open shades and curtains during sunny periods and close them at night for heat insulation.—Ideal Bite
