What Should I Know About Velux Skylights?

Four Seasons Roofing utilizes only the leading companies for the materials we use on your home. For skylights we choose Velux. They are a globally recognized brand known for their high-quality skylights and roof windows. Established in Denmark in 1941, Velux has grown to become a leading provider of daylighting solutions, offering a range of products that enhance the natural light and ventilation in residential and commercial buildings. Here’s what you should know about Velux skylights:

  1. Product Range

Velux offers a wide variety of skylight products, including:

  • Fixed Skylights: These are non-opening skylights that provide extra light but no ventilation. They are ideal for rooms where sufficient ventilation is already present.
  • Vented Skylights: These skylights can be opened to allow for air circulation, helping to reduce moisture and improve air quality inside the building. They can be manually operated or fitted with an electric or solar-powered mechanism that allows for automatic opening and closing.
  • Sun Tunnels: Velux Sun Tunnels are designed for spaces where traditional skylights cannot be installed. These tunnels channel natural light from the roof through a reflective tube, illuminating smaller or more enclosed areas like hallways or bathrooms.
  • Roof Windows: Perfect for attic spaces, these are designed to be within reach and can be opened completely to allow access to the roof or to provide significant ventilation.
  1. Innovation and Technology

Velux is known for its innovative designs and use of technology. Some key features include:

  • Solar Powered Skylights: These skylights use solar power to operate, opening and closing for ventilation without the need for electrical wiring. They come with a built-in rain sensor that automatically closes the skylight when it detects rain.
  • Smart Home Integration: Some Velux skylight models can be connected to home automation systems, allowing you to control them with a smartphone or even through voice-activated devices.
  • Advanced Glass Technology: Velux skylights use high-performance glass that offers better energy efficiency, reducing heat gain in summer and heat loss in winter. The glass also provides UV protection to prevent fading of furniture and carpets.
  1. Installation Flexibility

Velux skylights can be installed on different roof pitches and types, offering flexibility in design and placement. The company also offers accessories like blinds and remote controls to enhance functionality and aesthetic appeal.

  1. Energy Efficiency

Velux places a strong emphasis on energy efficiency. Their products are designed to maximize daylight and passive solar heating, which can help reduce reliance on artificial lighting and heating. This not only cuts down on energy costs but also reduces the environmental impact.

  1. Warranty and Support

Velux skylights are backed by a substantial warranty, which can be up to 20 years for the glass, 10 years for the skylight, and 5 years for the electronics. This demonstrates the company’s confidence in the durability and performance of its products.

  1. Health and Well-being

By increasing the amount of natural light in a space, Velux skylights contribute to improved mental and physical well-being. Natural light helps regulate circadian rhythms, boosts mood, and increases productivity.

When considering skylights, it’s important to evaluate the specific needs of your space, including the desired amount of light, the need for ventilation, and energy efficiency considerations. With their combination of quality, technology, and design, Velux skylights are a robust option for bringing natural light into any space.

I absolutely LOVE my new roof. Recent windstorm did some damage to my house and I needed new roof installed fast, otherwise I was facing more damage to the inside. Alex, the owner of 4 Seasons Roofing was very professional and courtesy from day 1. Their estimator did a great job explaining me what needed to be done and what was not necessary, unlike the other guys from Thumbtack I had to come over for an estimate. They finished my project last week and I am very grateful for what they did for me on a short notice.

From the very start we knew that 4 Seasons Roofing were going to carry out our roofing project seamless. Consultation, professional advice, communication, their bid with materials and labor in detail, and execution were all solid. We we extremely satisfied with them that we also hired them to replace our windows, which was another project done well, within the budget discussed and on time! I can recommend this company without any reservations.
