    I built a fram of 2X6 around the Skylight and staple the 90% Solar screen I got from Lowes. Works like a charm. Cheap and effective. I remove the frame in fall

      I built a fram of 2X6 around the Skylight and staple the 90% Solar screen I got from Lowes. Works like a charm.
      Cheap and effective. I remove the frame in fall before leaves start piling in the back of the frame.
      Hope it helps.

      Thank you Robert, it seems a very practical solution.

      Aerogels are translucent yet good insulators.  They have been used in commercial skylights.  Google it.  Here is one example link:  http://www.wascosky lights.com/ commercial/ lumira_aerogel

      I like the skylight in the dining room.. It illuminates the place real well.  Can anybody suggest a way to insulated it in the summer?   Are there any products such as skylight shades?  Would the mesh tarps they use to shade swimming pools do the job?  Betina

      Thank you.  I found www.skylightheatblo ckers.com   Perhaps it is cheaper than replacing the skylight with an aerogel...

      It's best if the sun can be blocked before it hits the skylight, rather than a block inside the skylight.  So, some kind of reflector over the skylight [with some air flow] clamped to the skylight frame would minimize the problem.
