  • Moderate changing temperatures.

    The installation of VELUX skylights can help your home moderate changing temperatures with seasonal automation. In warmer temperatures, open skylights and closed blinds keep your home cool by bringing in fresh air and keeping out the heat. When it's cold out, closed skylights and open blinds add the warmth of natural daylight while preventing heat from escaping.

  • Energy-efficient daylight from above.

    Most VELUX skylights are ENERGY STAR® certified and many of them include an Intelligent Touch Remote Control, helping you save money on electrical lighting. With our Energy Performance Model, you can program your skylights to optimize sunlight in every season. By selecting a “Fresh Air” model, your skylights can help cool your home during the spring and fall while reducing the load on your air conditioner.
