Velux is the industry leading-manufacturing designer of roof windows and skylights. For over 70 years, the globally renowned company has been creating better living environments, using daylight and fresh air to improve the functionality, mood and feel of homes all around the world. So, it’s not a coincidence that the ‘VE’ in the company’s name stands for ventilation and the ‘LUX’ is the Latin word for light. The benefits of installing Velux windows are endless and this article is going to explore what makes them so beneficial to your home. 

Everyone knows that daylight and fresh air are good for the body, mind and soul. Past studies have shown that sunlight is a natural antidepressant and helps to improve our mood, comfort and general wellbeing. The frames of Velux roof windows are specially designed and engineered to be as narrow as physically possible, ensuring that the maximum amount of sunlight can pass through the glazing. 

The Sun Tunnels created by Velux are designed to provide natural lighting to areas that may be too small for a regular roof window, such as corridors, bathrooms or closets. They allow you to provide natural light to the most central parts of your home. To continue, the Modular Skylights not only act as a defining feature, but they are specially designed to let more natural light into your home. To continue, they also allow you to replace a dark ceiling with a more mesmerising, ever-changing view – you truly will have the best seat in the house. With a huge selection of designs, you will be sure to find your perfect Velux window. 

The installation of these roof windows helps to reduce the risk of condensation, which we all know can lead to a stuffy, damp or mouldy home. In addition to this, the lack of proper air ventilation could eventually result in serious health conditions for you and your family, such as asthma or allergies. Therefore, installing Velux windows will help to create a more refreshing and comfortable space. The Cabrio balcony fits snugly to the roof when closed, but becomes an instant balcony when opened. It allows you to add light and air to your home. So if you’re thinking of renovating your home, then these products will help to create a healthier indoor environment. 

Velux windows also help to bring a fresh and visually-pleasing aesthetic to any room. The extra natural light makes a space seem larger, airier and more open. The top hung window offered is the perfect choice if you want to place it in a high place or if you want to create a panoramic view. 

Velux skylights are proven to let in twice the amount of natural light compared to normal vertical windows, so with improved access to more natural light, the electric lights in your home will not need to be switched on for as long or as early. In addition to this, Velux roof windows have excellent insulating properties, so you will be able to efficiently heat your home. These products allow you to not only reduce your carbon footprint but also your energy bills.

With a passion for daylight, fresh air and better living environments, Velux has created the perfect way to buy more daylight into your home.
