Why is “hay” not used.
In this sentence:
We are using the verb "entrar" (to enter/to get in) because when we talk about light we sometimes use it in order to express how much light there is in a house or how much light "gets in" the house. It is something I believe would sound odd in English but it is used in Spanish.
You could also use "hay" with pretty much the same meaning:
We can also use it to say that there is a lot of dust in a house:
En esta casa entra mucho polvo.
In this house there is a lot of dust.
I hope it helps,
