Sharon: Through-roof natural lighting products with focus on Velux offerings
Through-roof natural lighting products with focus on Velux offerings
by: Gabriel Fiorini
Velux Group offers three categories of products: skylights, roof windows, and sun tunnels. There are options and accessories available with most options. There are other manufactures who sell similar products but Almar most often installs Velux.
The main function of through-roof natural lighting products is to allow more natural light into the home. Skylights and roof windows also provide a view which can help a room feel larger and more open. Natural light is desirable because it’s very high quality, free, energy-efficient, and helps keep the inside of a house connected to the rhythms of the outside world.
Skylights and related products are often a good choice when one wants to bring natural light into a room but there is not sufficient space for windows (as in a bathroom or a room with sloping walls), when a homeowner wants to make a space feel especially airy and open, or when a homeowner wants to reduce energy consumption by reducing the need for electric lighting. Some of these products can also provide ventilation.
In general, all of these products are available in either deck-mounted or curb-mounted versions. Deck-mounted products provide a sleeker profile on the roof, whereas curb-mounted products are more suitable for flatter roofs. When installed in an appropriate location with manufacturer-recommended flashing, all Velux skylights, roof windows, and sun tunnels come with a 10-year warranty.
According to Velux’s website (http://www.whyskylights.com/why) some the of the main reasons to consider a Skylight are:
- Making Home Smarter: By utilizing the “power of the sun to bring natural light and fresh air in.”
- Providing natural balanced light makes color appear truer.
- Healthier environment
- Help reduce dependence on air conditioning.
- Provide daylight without sacrificing privacy
- Ultimate light control with blinds.
- In kitchens, using skylights for natural light and fresh air frees up wall space for additional cabinets.
