Wonderful solar powered skylights!
We finally have the amazing solar powered "fresh air" skylights up and running and we couldn't be happier. We love everything about them. The remotes are great! They are smooth & quiet when operating which is great. Having the black out shades is a bonus on sunny or hot days. Being able to see the sky, birds, and the stars is divine. We love the rain as well so we can not wait for the rain this year. Overall, they brighten my day up literally and figuratively! Very satisfied and pleased. Thank you Velux!!

    Beautiful upgrade to our home
    I purchased two of the solar powered skylights for our bathroom remodel. It added a depth of elegance sitting above the soaking tub.

      Love these two skylights! Vents the cooking moisture and heat out of the kitchen. Brings in fresh air without the bugs. I added diffuser and grid support made from fluorescent lighting plastic. Pure sunlight was too harsh.

      Such an upgrade from the old solar tube
      We just had this skylight installed to replace an old leaking solar tube in our bonus room that isn’t connected to our central air. As soon as we opened it, all the hot air in the room got sucked out and a nice breeze came in its place. So happy with it, and now I want two more in my kitchen.

        The skylight fits like a glove on the flashing.
        The skylight fits like a glove on the flashing. Well designed and engineered, NO hassle with alignment or fitting, not often you'll find that the flashing kits fits exact with the skylight. I bought the 22 1/2 x 34 1/2, my review doesn't seem to go under the size of window I bought, anyways, great buy. I'm not a contractor, just a handy DIY guy. Thanks.

          Solar operated Blinds will be A BIG ENERGY SAVER
          These things are great! Never thought blinds in our skylights would add so much to our home. Control with Phone APP Timer and wall switch.

            Just tested the hook.When I started to turn it by the rod, then it broke into 3 pieces right away. The hook is made by plastic which can not bear the twisting. Now I need to climb a ladder and use my hand to twist the hook manually every time I want to open the sky window.

              We had 2 cracked dome plastic skylights that were over 25 years old. Now buying the domed type costs more than the flat glass, so we ended up buying 4 to make them all match. These VELUX Fixed Curb-Mount Skylights fit perfectly over our existing curbs! Installation was super easy. The flat profile looks so much better from the outside. And the clear glass really brightens the room!
