Benefits of Skylights

Fixed skylights

The VELUX Fixed Skylight allows you to have natural light in areas of your home you’d never thought possible! Whether your space is set up as a work area, game room, man cave, or an art studio, you can add natural light and a sky view with fixed skylights.

Manual Fresh Air Skylights

The VELUX Manual “Fresh Air” Skylight is a simple, straightforward, and stunning as they come. Rather than using electric or solar-powered components, this skylight opens and closes by hand with a smooth turning handle for in-reach applications and a rod for out-of-reach ones. Like our other venting skylights, this one enables any home to embrace the very best of what nature has to offer: daylight and fresh air.

Electric Fresh Air Skylights

The VELUX Electric “Fresh Air” Skylight is designed for curb- and deck-mounted installations. It brings in abundant natural light and, with the touch of a button, opens to let stale air out and fresh air in. It’s compatible with VELUX skylight shades, which are available in a variety of styles and colors to create just the right look for your home.

Solar Powered Fresh Air Skylights

The Solar Powered “Fresh Air” Skylight features a solar panel that captures any available daylight and is the power source that opens and closes the skylight. A rain sensor is built in to close the unit in the event that inclement weather arises while you’re away.

Federal Solar Powered Tax Credit

When you install solar-powered skylights or solar shades, you instantly qualify for a 30% federal solar tax credit. This percentage is calculated based on the total cost of your project – that includes products and installation!

Large Span Skylights

Fill your home with bright, natural daylight! Spanning up to 10 feet, the dramatic SkyMax skylight doubles the square footage of standard flat glass skylights – without losing thermal efficiency. The SkyMax also incorporates a condensation channel to prevent leaking, eliminating the need for weep holes. For large, single light spans, the vinyl frame is structurally reinforced with aluminum. All SkyMax have a standard 2604 powdered coat finish in VELUX Neutral Grey. Additional designer colors, including copper cladding are available. Up to 35 sq feet – 10 feet at longest dimension

Sun Tunnel Skylights

VELUX Sun Tunnel® Skylights bring natural light into homes through a specially designed tunnel that passes from roof to ceiling and are a simple and cost-effective way to add natural light to all spaces.

Skylight Shades

Complete your VELUX skylight with a shade. VELUX skylight shades offer effective sun screening to suit every need. Choose from among a variety of colors with manual or electrically/solar powered operation.
