Fixed Skylight and Flat Roof Skylight
Fixed Skylight windows are the easiest way to add natural light to your home. Fixed skylights can be used for pitched and flat roofs. The fixed skylights are available in up to 9 sizes to suit any shape or look you are after, with a beautiful white interior wood frame, which blends seamlessly into your white ceiling. Velux fixed skylight can block up to 75% of the heat typically transferred through other branded skylight windows and plain glass windows.
Manual Skylight and Flat Roof Skylight
Manual Skylight windows are a simple skylight that is openable manually with a rod or extension rod or simply by hand, depending on the height of the skylight window.
The manual skylight and flat roof skylight are a great alternative from the electrical or solar if you're looking for a more budget friendly skylight. The skylight is easily openable and takes no time at all. However the manual powered skylight will not sensor any rainfall. In comparison the solar powered skylight and electrical skylight do, and therefore close themselves automatically.
Electrical Skylight and Flat Roof Skylight
Electric Skylight windows consist of power cable which is installed with the skylight window itself. This allows you to use your own energy to power your skylight or flat roof skylight. The cable is installed by our trusted installers, where they will show you where you can physically turn the skylight off whilst away on holidays. As mentioned above, this electrical skylight also sensors rain to which will automatically shut.
Solar Powered Skylight and Flat Roof Skylight
Solar Skylight windows consist of a solar panel system which reduces energy consumption by 100% during the day. Channeling natural light throughout possibly every room in any building. The Velux solar powered skylight is the most preferred skylight out of the full range. Eco Sustainable House like to look at this specific skylight as an investment, rather than a liability. The solar powered skylight is an asset for future energy savings on your bill.
Roof Window (all roof windows are manual)
Roof Windows are a way to utilize not only the natural light but also the cool natural breeze. Depending on which roof window you purchase, you can maneuver the roof window to allow a breeze to flow through your home effortlessly. Velux have designed these roof windows for ease of use as well as simplistic modern look.
Velux roof windows are made from a cool toned steel, with laminated double glazing glass. Velux roof windows are available in 5 different sizes for your attic, lofts, bedroom, or anywhere in your home that need the Velux roof window ventilation.
