A preference for spaces to be in well lit and well ventilated have considerably increased the use of glazing products. More and more people are getting conscious about the side-effects of global warming and are trying to reduce the consumption of energy. Not only in groceries or fuel, you can now go green even inside your home! A VELUX skylight breathes new life to your home and saves power consumption to a great extent. The positivity of skylights has impact on both the environment and your home, by cutting down on carbon dioxide emissions caused by electricity consumption from lights.
Difference between skylights and roof windows
Both of these are technically the same term. Roof windows are usually smaller than skylights and come only in standard shapes and sizes. These need to be waterproofed with flashings. Skylights range from small-scale domestic units to much larger bespoke glazed units. Be it on terraces, on traditional pitched roofs or on flat roofs, the skylights can be installed effectively and can light up your home in no time.
Benefits of installing VELUX skylights
Roof windows provide you with privacy benefits, if your house is attached to that of your neighbour. VELUX roof windows have a variety of designs that you can choose from and adds life to your small spaces.
