The No Leak Solar Skylight

Through 2019, you can receive a 30% tax credit for installing solar skylights and solar blinds in your home. This makes for the perfect time to add this incredible feature to your home. Let's talk about some of the perks of having a solar skylight.

Fresh Air

In door air can be five times more polluted than outdoor air. Respiratory problems and allergies can be caused or aggravated by poor indoor air quality. For example, living in damp and moldy homes increases the risk of asthma by 40%. Children are particularly vulnerable to the impact of poor indoor

climate because their lungs and brains are not fully developed. Toxic particles from toys and electronics make kid's rooms the most susceptible to harmful emissions and cause health problems like headache, trouble sleeping and fatigue. The best way to create a healthy indoor climate is to freshen the air with multiple ventilated windows. It's recommended to air out your home up to four times a day for ten minutes.

Energy Savings

VELUX Solar Skylights meet all the ENERGY STAR requirements. Triple LoE, dual-sealed, argon filled glass helps create a more energy-efficient window in all climate zones. Just make sure you get a 5-star professional installer for an air-tight, energy saving experience. Room-darkening blinds can boost energy performance in your home by up to 40%. And with smartphone technology, you can set your blinds to automatically open and close based on the weather conditions. Sounds like we're living in the future!


According to recent studies, we spend 90% of our time indoors which has caused various health problems. For example, Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to tiredness, fatigue, increased vulnerability to disease especially mental health. Even the brightest artificial lights cannot match the health benefits of natural sunlight. We recommend you light your home with as much natural light as possible and only use artificial light when necessary. In addition to health benefits, natural light enhances every room for a more open and warm aesthetic.

Easy Control

Control over 200 skylights from your phone? Yes, please. You can also set automatic times for your skylights to ventilate your house everyday. "What about the rain?"

It's never been so easy to control Skylights and with solar technology you don't have to worry about tedious and difficult installation. No wires, no worries.
