Bringing Nature Inside
Solar Powered “Fresh Air” Skylights
The Solar Powered “Fresh Air” Skylight (available for both deck and curb mount installations) features a solar panel that captures available daylight and uses it to recharge a highly efficient, fully concealed battery powered operator and control system. This operator is the power source that opens and closes the skylight, negating the need for electrical wiring during installation.
Electric “Fresh Air” Skylights
Designed for both deck and curb mount installations, the VELUX Electric “Fresh Air” skylight is the perfect daylighting solution for overhead applications. It allows for abundant natural light, and with the touch of a button, opens to let in fresh air. And if you forget to close it, a rain sensor will shut the skylight during inclement weather.
Manual “Fresh Air” Skylights
Designed for both deck and curb mount installations, the VELUX Manual “Fresh Air” skylight enables any home to embrace the best of what nature has to offer. Opening for maximum fresh air, this venting skylight contributes to a home’s proper moisture balance and comfort level by allowing stale, humid air to be released.
VELUX fixed skylights, designed for deck mounted installations, are perfect for visually expanding areas such as hallways, stairwells, and other closed-in, dark spaces that can be transformed with light and sky views. They provides an economical choice in creating a spacious home that is filled with natural light.
Why skylights in your kitchen is essential?
Kitchens are the heart of our home, where memories are made, recipes are attempted, and smiles are shared across the table. We depend on our kitchen to be bright and full of light to help us prepare meals and to enjoy them. Yet with our kitchens needing all the cabinets and storage available, we often times sacrifice natural light for space. Well, not anymore! Positioned on your roof to let light shine down, skylights add plentiful, bright, natural light to your kitchen without costing you any space.
Daylight and fresh air for your bathroom
Unlike other rooms in our homes, our bathrooms tend to be our most private spaces, where we depend more on artificial light than we do windows to light our way. But what if we could add natural light to our bathroom without sacrificing privacy? As a window on your roof, skylights bathe your bathroom with the uninhibited natural, bright light from above, keeping your bathroom’s privacy down below.
More natural light in your bedroom
Oftentimes, we believe that the less light you have in your bedroom, the better you’ll sleep. But it’s just the opposite! Natural light helps to balance our circadian rhythm (our sleep cycle) to give us a more restful night sleep and a more productive day. One of the easiest ways to add more natural light to your bedroom, without sacrificing any privacy, is to add skylights.
Skylights in your living room is essential
The place where you spend most of your time should be the place that provides you the most comfort and convenience. Bring your living room to life with natural light and fresh air from above. Skylights splash your living room in bright, uninhibited light to make your living room décor pop with color and life.
