New Ways VELUX® Can Save You Money

By Gordon Correia,

I received a call from an architect who has a home in the summer months in Wellfleet and in the winter months in sunny California. He expressed to me that he does not believe in using heat or air conditioning and that he designed both houses around that belief. He used the stack effect in both homes by installing several Velux skylights. I got a call from the architect and he asked me if I could swing by and help him program the remotes because he wasn’t as tech savvy as he thought. It was in the middle of June and the temperature was about 70 degrees outside and the temperature inside of the house was about 85 degrees due to all the glass and being a bright, sunny day. I opened the sliding glass door on the north side facing the ocean and as soon as I programmed the remote to open all the skylights at the same time and pushed the “open” button, it was like an instant rush of cool air and brought the temperature inside down to a cool 68 degrees in less than 10 minutes.

Velux Fresh Air Skylights have energy performance and tax savings ALL IN ONE BOX.
