I'd like to add a reflective shade (insulated would be even better but
reflection is primary) on the interior of my existing horizontal
skylights ranging from about 2x2' to 2'x6'. I have at least 6" of
vertical mounting room in the skylight wells.
I live in Philadelphia where the summer heat buildup is a real killer.
Does anyone have recommendations for a specific brand that would be
Also, are there any gotchas for this kind of retrofit? The one I'm
aware of is that an interior shade could build up a LARGE amount of
heat and thus high temperature in the space between the shade and the
skylight, presumably leading to potential damage. I'd plan to deal
with this aspect by cracking the skylight open during the day.
Thanks for any recommendations.
