The majority of homes built today are located on small lots with only a few feet separating one house from the next. Privacy can be difficult to find, and with areas such as bedrooms and bathrooms, privacy is necessary. The solution to your privacy matter is close… in fact, it is right above your head!
With venting skylights, homeowners can have not just privacy, but natural light from above. A constant stream of fresh air through passive ventilation is another added bonus.
Joe Patrick, who heads national product management for VELUX America, says that venting skylights provide those benefits and more. “In bathrooms especially,” Patrick says, “venting skylights, with their natural chimney effect, reduce condensation build-up while providing a beautiful view of the sky above, without affording anyone the opportunity to see in. Plus you get the use of wall space where a window isn’t necessary for decorating or another form of space utilization.”
According to several studies by American Standard, skylights are the number one option to include in “dream bathrooms.” And modern, ENERGY STAR® qualified skylights offer as many, or more features for managing light than standard windows.
For the ultimate in convenience, electric venting skylights are available with remote control, blinds, shades, awnings, insect screening and automatic rain sensors.
