Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice windows, on-line support could be better They are beautiful and the shades option is amazing! However, I'm having trouble programming two controllers for 2 rooms, and can't get help. I went on-line and after 2 weeks of getting wrong instruction (the instruction may have been correct, but not for my model) I still haven't received proper instruction. After following the incorrect instruction I can't get the controllers to open any of the 4 windows I have......

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 5 out of 5 by from Feature Packed and Easy To Use We recently installed 3 each, Electric Opening 48" x 48" skylights in our new sunroom. One of the shades was broken, and Velux promptly sent us a new one! This is the 3rd home over the last 32 years that we have installed Velux skylights in. They allow the excess heat to vent at the top, which allows the cooler air to enter through the home's windows. Having "natural light" in areas without windows really makes the space much more livable.

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 4 out of 5 by from I had 4 installed about 10 years ago, 2 electric and 2 manual. I'm happy with them. The operators supplied don't bounce well so I had to get a new one. Also, the shade operator on one malfunctioned and Velux indicated that I can't get a direct replacement. I'm considering the option of replacing the shade with a newer model but it's a costly solution.

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.
