Velux Windows, Skylights & Sun Tunnels
Adding light to a room can be hugely beneficial. It can greatly improve the atmosphere of the room and even help improve mood. The best way to add light to a room is to add a window, skylight and or sun tunnel into the roof. This will allow light to pass through from directly above the room. This will increase the aesthetics and improve how your property is viewed. To have a Velux window, skylight or sun tunnel installed on your property today give us a call or send us an email.

Improves Ventilation in Your Home
The air quality in your home is important. If you have poor air quality in your home it can result in poor health for you and your family and it can also result in stale air. If this happens your home may feel stuffy and unwelcoming. To avoid this from happening you should consider installing a Velux window or skylights in roof rooms. These are a great way to supply a good air flow in your home. This will lead to a happier and more enjoyable space to use in your loft.
Quality Installed Velux Windows - Energy Efficiency
One of the key considerations when adding Velux windows, or skylights to your home is to ensure you maintain energy efficient. Whilst more natural light can reach your room it means that less electricity is required to light up your home. However, a poorly installed skylight or cheap skylight will have a detrimental affect on heating. The combination of these two aspects should be a major factor in deciding who and what you have installed. Done correctly you will need less power to light up your home, which in turn leads to lower electricity bills for you and less damage done to the environment as less harmful fuels are used to produce the electricity. Done incorrectly can have the opposite effect if extra heating is required in colder months to maintain a comfortable room temperature. Only having Velux windows, skylights and sun tunnels installed correctly can lead to a much more efficient home.
Skylight Installation - What to consider
Whilst one great benefit to having Velux windows, skylights and sun tunnels in your home is the money that you save in the long run. However, whilst having a light source in the roof will greatly reduce your need for lights in that room, you could end up having too much direct sunlight and heat as a result of poor positioning of a Velux window. Granted you can open your window and close blinds but that will undo some of the benefits of installing a skylight in the first place. The ability to do these things will depend on exactly what you have chosen, so think about the specification. Consider the path of the sun and how you intend to use the room first before deciding on where you want to position your skylight or Velux installation. Another important aspect to consider is whether or not to chose laminated glass which prevents your glass from shattering should an object impact and break your window, or tinting to limit sun damage of internal items. Are you subjected to noise, if so you may want to choose 'noise pollution glass'. We are happy to discuss the options on skylights, rooflights and sun lanterns and what type of glass may be best for your specific needs.
