VELUX skylights helped transform my sunroom from a troublesome home-maintenance headache to a beautiful four-season escape. I know the skylights are properly flashed, so I won't need to worry about wood rot or leakage. Plus, my skylights include electric and solar-powered blinds, as well as manual and electric venting, allowing me to control daylight and air flow with a single remote. The sunroom had previously been too hot for summer use, now I can vent the skylights to create a cool breeze that makes summer use not only possible, but inviting.
More than any other element, light, with its many moods and variations, can transform dark rooms into uplifting spaces and help make a house a home. In fact, not only does natural light create better ambiance, it is an essential component of a safe, healthy environment and can actually improve the way we feel about our living spaces, our time spent at home, and the world around us.
Because rooms filled with sunlight and fresh air invariably appear more spacious and inviting, installing skylights can add value and quality to your home as well as your life.
Studies have found significant advantages to a home saturated in beautiful natural daylight:
- Using daylight reduces energy costs, energy consumption, and the demand for unsustainable power that is currently challenging the health of earth’s environment.
- Skylights increase a home’s sales appeal.
- Daylight helps keep our internal clock on schedule and prevents sleep disorders caused by a circadian rhythm imbalance.
- Students in a well-lighted environment not only learn better but grow faster.
- As you age, you are less likely to fall in well-lighted areas.
To help you take advantage of the many benefits that sunlight has to offer, VELUX has created a wide range of daylighting solutions. From The No Leak skylight and other residential skylights to SUN TUNNEL skylights, we offer a more energy-efficient alternative to lighting dark interior rooms that have, in the past, relied on artificial sources of illumination. Thanks to VELUX, any room, including hallways, utility rooms and interior bathrooms, can easily be transformed into a bright, cheerful, welcoming space.
