If you’re wondering how your roof can be better insulated and have more daylight, the solution is the latest generation of Velux roof windows..
"After they’re installed, the Velux windows will let the sun’s warmth fill your room and will keep it there, leading to lower energy consumption and improved daylight. The new generation of windows provides excellent insulation, as well as passive solar gain, the design using the sun’s energy for heating and cooling your living space."
Velux roof windows are seen as a valuable contributor to providing low-energy housing, thus reducing global energy consumption. In addition, they produce an estimated 18% more natural daylight than conventional windows, decreasing the need for electric lights and producing further energy-savings. In terms of the industry standards for energy-efficiency, Velux roof windows offer a low U-value of 1.2, an excellent score.This is thanks to the elegant new design of the latest Velux roof windows, boasting a larger pane space, with slimmer frames and sashes. The addition of the windows to your loft conversion can completely transform your room, making it appear more spacious. The natural light is easy on the eye and creates a changing environment for your room, enabling you to enjoy sunrise and sunset. It’s a fact that natural sunlight can actually improve your physical and mental well-being, particularly if you suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder, caused by a lack of daylight. Your body is designed to get the vitamin D it requires for healthy teeth, immune system and bones by producing it when your skin is exposed to the sunlight. The latest generation of Velux roof windows offer a background ventilation system that can be set to allow fresh air into the room even if the window is shut. The larger pane allows more heat into your room through solar gain, while heat loss is decreased by the windows’ insulation. These features allow you to create your own personal comfort level for your room.
Personalise and manage your energy consumption
If you choose to add blinds, you can further personalise and manage your energy consumption by providing shade to keep your room cooler in the hot summer months and a further layer of insulation in the winter.
