PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Model # VCS 2246 2004

Internet # 204463795

The new solar powered fresh air skylight Lights up your home and provides proper ventilation using only the power of the sun. It features a solar panel that captures any available daylight, and uses it to recharge a highly efficient battery powered operator and control system. The solar panel does not have to be exposed to direct sunlight to function, so it will work on cloudy days and with indirect light.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good product I brought this product last week and it works more than what I expected. Worth for paid money November 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by superb design and construction These newest skylights from Velux are amazing: they can be operated without an electrical supply, instead being powered from their own solar panels. A built-in rain sensor will close the window automatically. The quality of the construction and design is first rate, and they are easy to install (caveat: well built in this case means heavy). The remote is easy to program and can control many skylights with tons of options. One worry, which I hope isn't a problem in the long run: there's an internal battery charged from the solar panel, but I don't see any way to replace it if it goes bad. October 5, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WOW this skylight is amazing I have 4 of the older ones that are hard wired and was a little apprehensive ordering this one but was certainly impressed. It's been installeda couple months now and it's spectacular. The operation in smooth and quiet, the controller is easy and impressive. October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Our home is transformed we have a medium-sized single-level home in between two 30foot high homes. Our only sunlight came in to the front of the house in the afternoon, on sunny days. The rest of the house stayed dark, especially on cloudy days. Last month we had 5 (yes, 5) Velux solar powered fresh air skylights installed in the darkest parts of the house, each one in a different room. What an incredible difference!! Diffused light pours in from dawn to twilight, totally changing the feel of our home. My husband had been a skeptic but he loves having them now. He loves the air flow, the light, and the fact that they did not leak when we had a freak rainstorm right after they were installed! June 23, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Solar! No wiring. Although I had my skylight installed by a professional, it went in easy. Not having to get to the spot with an electric feed made for less work. Although all the features work, the control didn't want to behave. A Velux repair person came to my house free of charge and set things up. It works great now and living in the mountain/desert, having a "hole" in my ceiling when I want it cools the house down quickly at night. Great design, Velux. June 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love my new skylight I had one of the solar powered skylights installed last fall in the Master Bathroom to replace a manual one that was 28 years old. I love having the remote control that hangs on the wall instead of having to open and close it with a long pole. My unit also has rain sensors, so I can leave it open all day long and not worry about it raining. June 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it.. I love this sky light, is heavy duty or cheap, more light comes into the bathroom and when its raining it closes on it own, one less window for me to close when it starts to rain. I bought this skylight about one year ago and I haven't had any issues to date...great buy June 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worry free! I installed this Skylight last year. It has been flawless. It does exactly what I bought it to do. I leave it open in the hot weather because at of the top of the stairway is where all the heat rises to the open Skylight allows it to exit like a chimney. If it rains it closes and no wet floors. Love it! June 23, 2015
