Studies have shown that natural light and air are key ingredients in the recipe for a healthy home. Even if your house has plenty of well selected and thoughtfully placed windows, adding skylights in strategic areas can improve air circulation, increase natural light, and add beauty while bringing important benefits to your family.
VELUX skylights can be added to almost any roof, while SUN TUNNELTM light tubes and VELUX roof windows provide additional options. VELUX products have been featured in HGTV® Smart Home construction projects and now Chapman Windows Doors & Siding is pleased to offer them to your home.
The rewards of using VELUX skylights to increase the natural light and air in your home are numerous. While skylights add architectural interest to any room, they turn north-facing rooms, hallways, bathrooms, closets and loft conversions from dark, cramped or uninviting spaces into pleasant, open, and welcoming areas to enjoy. Exposure to natural light increases productivity, aids in regulating sleep cycles, improves mood, and boosts energy levels. Reading, working, or studying in a room that includes adequate natural light reduces eye strain. Light and air inhibit mold and bacterial build up, and the sunlight gives you essential vitamin D. To help you gain these benefits, VELUX provides a residential skylight portfolio that includes products to fit most applications and budgets.
Accessories and options available with VELUX include advanced manual and powered controls, trim kits, and manual, solar powered, or electric blinds in over 100 style and color choices. Pre-mounted Pick&Click!TM brackets make blind installation easy. Depending on your selected skylight, glass options include dual paned tempered LoE3 glass or Clean, Quiet & Safe Glass. This self-cleaning dual paned laminated glass can be upgraded with an additional white laminate coating to reduce UV penetration, and/or with snow and impact resistance built in. When used with VELUX installation materials, VELUX skylights offer a No Leak guarantee.
