However, before you confirm installing a skylight, have a look at the common types of Velux skylights.

Common Types of Velux Skylights

Solar-powered ‘Fresh Air’ Skylight: This is a vented skylight that makes use of the sun’s power (sunlight) to open and close. Few things that the ‘fresh air’ solar-powered skylight would offer is the acoustic rain sensor that can detect the sound of rain. It would then automatically close the skylight if it is left open. The second would be the ability to open and close it from any location right from your smartphone. The skylight comes in with 10 years no leak warranty if you make use of the Velux flashing kit during the installation.

Manual ‘Fresh Air’ Skylight: This needs to be manually opened and closed with your hands. However, if you are unable to reach, you would be provided with an operator hook to open and close the same. This skylight comes with an insect screen that can prevent pests from entering your home. However, if you leave it open accidentally; you should physically lose it when you remember the same. The skylight comes with a 10 years no leak warranty if you make use of the Velux flashing kit during the installation.

Fixed Skylight: These skylights are sealed and do not open. However, they are a great way to provide natural light without obstructing the roofline. These can be considered as regular skylights as they only let in light. The skylights would let in natural light and offer you a view of the area. They are available in versatile sizing options for better flexibility and in choosing where you would like to place your skylight.

Flexible Sun Tunnel Skylight: This helps in adding some light in a room that is located right in the middle of your house, utility room, or bathroom. The sun tunnel won’t provide as much light as a normal skylight and it is less costly when compared to the other skylights. This skylight is made of an acrylic dome that can be mounted on the base of a flexible tube that goes through your roof. On the end of the flexible tube, there would be a light diffuser which would look like a mounted circle on the ceiling. Light is captured by the dome; it is then magnified and sent down into the light diffuser via the tube. A flexible sun tunnel can be the fastest and most cost effective way to give any room a makeover with natural light.
