The venting skylight Difference

If you are looking for an economical and healthy way to ventilate your home or building, then venting skylights are your answer. Venting skylights are skylights and roof windows that can be opened to give admission to natural air and light. Aside from providing a flow of fresh air to your room, venting skylights also contribute to temperature control and proper moisture balance by releasing stale and humid air. The overall result is an increased level of comfort for minimal cost.

Venting skylights can be installed on roofs with slopes between 15 and 85 degrees (3:12 – 137:12), and all flat roof surfaces. Venting skylights are suitable to practically all kinds of areas in your house or office, especially the bathrooms and kitchens where ventilation is frequently required. There are also many flashing systems that can be installed with your venting skylight, to ensure waterproofing quality and efficiency. Most of these systems are suitable to shingles and shakes, metal roofing, and high profile roofing. A venting skylight system is usually available with several safety glass options for added protection, UV and weather resistant coatings, and a scope of sizes to suit your needs.

Manual or Electric Venting Skylights

Many companies, such as Velux Skylights, are now offering venting skylights with electric control. Most skylights and roof windows are placed in areas that can be easily accessed for manual ventilation purposes, and electric control eliminates this issue. Electrically controlled venting skylights also provide you with the option of having them installed in virtually any area on your roof’s surface, even in out of reach places.
