About This Product

VELUX VCE electric "Fresh Air" Skylights can be opened to create a chimney effect that draws air upward to improve air circulation and air quality within your home. It can be installed on a flat roof at 0° up to a 60° roof pitch on a site-built curb. Bringing natural light into a home through a skylight decreases the need for artificial light while maintaining privacy. Installing a skylight is one of the most impactful ways to enhance the brightness and beauty of a room.

Highlights

  • Features clean, quiet and safe Low-E3 laminated glass with a Neat glass coating that keeps your skylight cleaner, reduces unwanted outside noise and comes with a 10-year hail warranty against glass breakage
  • Consists of double paned argon gas filled low-E3 glass that provides excellent energy performance for year round comfort, plus the added safety of laminated glass, which building codes require for out of reach applications
  • Easy to use remote control and insect screen are included

        Q:Can you put a reflective film on the inside glass?
        by|May 25, 2024
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Please do not put reflective film onto VELUX Skylights as this can create a "heat sink" which can crack the glass. If you need to reduce heat gain and light, choose a VELUX solar powered shade instead. It will include a remote control and is eligible for a 30% Federal Tax Credit too!

            Velux will NOT honor warranty!
            I had two of these installed by a Velux contractor. In year five--last year--one leaked above the LR. Velux sent out the same installer, who blamed the fire prinkler system---which is not even near the skylights, and was found in perfect condition by my insurance adjuster! Despite the ten-year warranty, and it being only year 5, Velux refuses to fix it! Lots of complaints on BBB re this. I guess they'll next blame aliens! I'll be suing them when the rain stops.

            VELUX is committed to quality and excellence so you can rest assured that our technical solutions team has managed your warranty claim with due diligence. Neither the technician nor the department head found any indication of defects with your skylights during their inspections. It’s my understanding that we are waiting for you to provide some information that was requested in order for your warranty claim to receive further consideration, so please refer back to the communications you received. Thank you. Velux

              Fantastic skylight
              This skylight makes the room! It really does. Only complaint is the separate flashing kit that is needed to install and isn’t included. And it’s $115. Meaning this window costs $365 overall, not $250. So that part was disappointing - but in no way regretting the window - Fantastic light sourch and outlook.

                Great product
                Installed my skylight 10 years ago and no need for maintenance. Till this day no leaks. Absolutely beautiful addition for my dining area. I definitely recommend it. The only thing I regret was not getting the ones with built in shades. But I added powered shades with remote control and solar panels for the batteries.

                  20 yr old skylight
                  Velux say lifetime warranty. Not true. I have 5 20 yr old skylights velux. All but on started to leak. Pro installer, no issue with anything but the garbage skylights. I do not recommend velux. Stay away. Second set in my lifetime. Leaking again. 20 yr max.

                  VELUX deck and curb mounted skylights have a 10 year product warranty as well as a 10 year No Leak Warranty when installed properly with VELUX flashing. These skylights also have a 20 year hermetic seal warranty for the glass. I'm afraid that we have never offered a Lifetime warranty on any of our products.
                    Check them first!
                    Of course I meant to check each skylight before installation, but it's easy to get behind when you're getting a new roof and managing an entire upstairs renovation. 3 of the skylights were perfect, but the fourth was the worst caulking job I've ever seen- black caulk smeared across the skylight. I have no idea how this got past quality control, so I'm left assuming that there is no quality control. I've cleaned it up as best I can but it still sucks.

                    Thank you very much for your feedback and the photos. I’m sorry to hear that you had a negative experience with one of the skylights you received, and for the inconvenience it caused. There are quality control checks that occur at multiple points during the manufacturing process, so I’m passing along this information to our Product Management team and they will look into it. It would be very helpful if you could please call the VELUX Customer Service phone number at 800-888-3589 to report the issue directly to us and provide your contact information. Thank you for choosing VELUX!
