Overcoming Too Much Heat from Skylights
As much as we love the sun and its warmth, too much of it is uncomfortable to endure in an enclosed room. If your home has air conditioning, rooms overheated by older skylights can increase your energy costs more than necessary to keep a room enjoyable to use.
Why are rooms with older skylights too warm or too cold?
Every skylight is sized to fit a particular room according to many different factors. First, understand that most people, being disappointed with a dark room, oversize their skylight, causing too much heat loss in the winter and too much heat gain in the summer. Many contractors install a standard 2x4 skylight, without considering all the different factors.
What has VELUX done to moderate the heat produced through a skylight?
VELUX developed an entirely new line of skylights called the A21 series. The deck-mounted A21 skylights feature a No-Leak Promise from VELUX. These new from top to bottom skylights feature 3 layers of leak protection, an entirely new method of installation, pre-painted interior frames and insulated LoE3 (low emissivity) glass that provides more daylight with superior heat control. And now blinds and shades will fit virtually every skylight application.
