Electric "Fresh Air" skylights

Curb mounted skylight

Designed for quick installation, the VCE electric-venting skylight is the perfect daylighting solution for your home. It lets abundant natural light flow into the room, while blocking heat. As a venting skylight, it reduces the need for air conditioning during the year, and, thanks to the chimney effect, improves indoor air quality when open by removing moisture, odors and other indoor pollutants. An insect screen is included.

Thanks to a pre-installed concealed motor and control system, you’ll enjoy the one-touch convenience of a remote control or mounted keypad, and can even connect your skylights to an existing home automation system. If you forget to close your skylights, however, the rain sensor closes the VCE skylight automatically, in case of inclement weather. The VCE skylight also comes with optional blinds that can help provide privacy, diffused light or complete darkness.

For added peace of mind, your VELUX warranty covers 20 years on insulating glass, 10 years on the skylight, and 5 years on the electronics.  See VELUX warranty brochure for complete details.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So glad we went with Velux! I had been talking about getting a large skylight in my kitchen for as long as we have had our house (going on 23yrs). My husband finally agreed and we went with the remote controlled Fresh Air Skylight with remote blind. What an amazing skylight! Not only does it let fresh air into our home, but it also lights up our kitchen during the day. We can even close the blind if we don't want too much sunlight coming through it. The only complaint we have is the remote sometimes doesn't hold a charge for very long. I think we should have gone with the solar powered remote. Other than that, we are extremely happy with our Velux skylight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright and breezy, one of our better home purchase We installed two skylights into our family room and are blown away with the look and light that they added to the room. The shades work smoothly and are a great addition for adjusting light levels. The control is very nice and easy to use. We wish we had added them sooner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade! I have two skylights in my home: one in the kitchen and one in a bathroom. I was struggling with the cost of getting 2 electric skylights, so the salesperson suggested I get a stationary skylight in the bathroom (where a fan is already installed) and then get an electric one for the kitchen (where I have a high ceiling). This was the perfect solution for me! I was able to get one of the newer, electric models, which I greatly enjoy, and yet not feel like I spent too much money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from How to convert electric skylights to solar powered My existing electric power skylights are no longer working. Do you have a replacement power module to switch the existing window to a solar powered power module without replacing the skylight? I love the units we have (8) but one set has a problem with the electric control unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Let There Be View We just had ten center-pivot Velux windows installed in our new attic living space. We now have views of both Mt. Rainier and Mt. Baker, the length of Lake Washington, the Cascade Mountains and downtown Bellevue, WA. It's breathtaking both day and night. Next year we'll be able to touch the Blue Angels when they fly over during Seafair!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE LOVE LOVE my skylights and shades I bought about 8 skylights for my full gut renovation. Love the skylights (both fixed and remote operated). The only complaints I have is with the remote. The UX software is a bit clunky, and I wish i could control it with an iphone app. Additionally my solar powered room darkening shades are awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sunlight! We purchased a condo in an old factory. There where no windows in two bedrooms. After adding the skylights the rooms where transformed! Not only do we get sunlight and ventilation but my condo now makes sense and I'm sure they will pay for themselves for resale. I want one in my foyer as well!
