Solar Powered "Fresh Air" skylights

Deck mounted skylight

Letting natural light and fresh air into your home has never been easier. The revolutionary No Leak Solar Powered "Fresh Air" skylight features a solar panel that captures any available daylight and uses it to recharge a highly efficient battery that opens and closes the skylight. The VSS model is designed for deck mounted installations.

  • Now you can enjoy the fresh air and natural light it brings into your home for less. With a 30% federal tax credit, homeowners could receive up to $850* with tax credit eligibility
  • The remote-controlled solar powered skylight requires no wiring. So it's easier and cost effective to install.
  • The solar panel works on cloudy days and with indirect light. It does not need to be in direct sunlight to function.
  • It also comes with the No Leak Promise - a 10-year installation warranty. Plus 20 years on insulating glass, 10 years on the skylight and 5 years on blinds and controls. See VELUX warranty brochure for complete details.
  • Forget to close your skylights? The rain sensor closes the skylight automatically, in case of inclement weather.
  • For light control, choose one of ten factory-installed blinds, or you can choose from more than 100 special order blinds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our home is transformed we have a medium-sized single-level home in between two 30foot high homes. Our only sunlight came in to the front of the house in the afternoon, on sunny days. The rest of the house stayed dark, especially on cloudy days. Last month we had 5 (yes, 5) Velux solar powered fresh air skylights installed in the darkest parts of the house, each one in a different room. What an incredible difference!! Diffused light pours in from dawn to twilight, totally changing the feel of our home. My husband had been a skeptic but he loves having them now. He loves the air flow, the light, and the fact that they did not leak when we had a freak rainstorm right after they were installed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best! Replaced an old "builder grade" skylight with the Velux in our Master Bath. WOW! Before it was either hot or cold depending on the outside temp. Now we have a far greater control. The solar-powered skylight with shade has made us love our bathroom again! Thanks Velux for such a great product. We found our installer through the Velux website and everything went perfect from our 1st call. Friendly, professional and efficient! I highly recommend Velux to anyone looking for a skylight. Don't settle for anything less!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new skylight I had one of the solar powered skylights installed last fall in the Master Bathroom to replace a manual one that was 28 years old. I love having the remote control that hangs on the wall instead of having to open and close it with a long pole. My unit also has rain sensors, so I can leave it open all day long and not worry about it raining.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality workmanship I bought this unit a month ago. Since it arrived in the package, all parts looked high-end quality and very well-built. Our kitchen used to get very hot with the afternoon sun; noticed 10-20 degrees cooler difference. Amazing solar mechanism for skylight and blinds. I reviewed other brands but all look flimsy and cheap. Not looking forward to replace skylights very often. I would definitely recommend these to others looking into quality and reliability. Worth the extra money and tax return. Only reason I am not providing 5 stars is because we have not had it long enough. Only time will tell. So far very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazingly Versital Love our new Solar Powered Skylights, they are so versital and easy to use. Great to show them off to all our friends. We just built a new cottage behind our main house and added three of them along with a sun tunnel for the bath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, and no heat issues! We installed three of these and loved them, so we ordered another one and had it installed too. They work like magic! Also love that they do not require electricity and qualify for the solar tax credit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Remote craps outs The skylights are great - when they work. We have four, and one of them stopped interfacing with the remote after about a month, and then, about four months, the remote completely stopped working and just flashed the Velux ad screen when one turned it on. I assume its a software issue (as it just flashes the Velux screen saver for a few seconds and then cycles), but its totally annoying and the lack of any information on the website or in the warranty documents regarding troubleshooting is likewise annoying. Hopefully my contractor can get some information out of Velux to fix it so I don't have to sue them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality in all regards! We bought this solar powered Velux skylight to replace a leaking non-Velux fixed acrylic skylight that had cracked when a tree limb fell on it. This solution is perfect. Love having fresh air for ventilating a room that can really heat up! And it auto-closes when it rains! We're confident this will be a great long term solution. One installation "gotcha"... We had trouble finding the "on" switch on the skylight itself. There was no cover over the hole that you must use a paperclip to "press on" and we weren't sure we had the right spot. Just when we were ready to give Velux a call, it started working... We searched for YouTube videos for confirmation we were on the right track.
