Fall in Love with Your Home: Skylights vs Traditional Windows

When it comes to brightening and enhancing your home, there's one option that truly stands out: VELUX Skylights. Our innovative skylights offer a host of advantages that make them the ideal choice for homeowners. In this blog post, we'll explore why VELUX Skylights are the superior option compared to traditional windows for your home.

Energy Efficiency: Keeping the Cold at Bay

In the Canadian climate, where winters can be harsh and energy costs can soar, energy efficiency is a top priority for homeowners. VELUX Skylights are designed with energy efficiency in mind, making them the clear winner in this category.

Traditional windows can be a source of drafts and heat loss, leading to increased heating bills during the colder months. VELUX Skylights, on the other hand, offer advanced glazing options, which provides superior insulation. This insulation helps regulate indoor temperatures, keeping your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. For homeowners, this means significant energy savings and increased comfort year-round!

Capturing Natural Light Year-Round

Fall is approaching meaning the amount of daylight we get each day is getting shorter which makes maximizing natural light in your home is even more important. Traditional windows do provide natural light, but their effectiveness can be limited by factors such as the orientation of your home and the changing angle of the sun throughout the year.

VELUX Skylights, however, excel at capturing natural light year-round. Placed strategically in your roof, they capture sunlight from above, evenly distributing it throughout your living spaces. This not only reduces your reliance on artificial lighting but also creates a bright and inviting atmosphere in your home, regardless of the season.


Aesthetics and Modern Design

When it comes to aesthetics and modern design, VELUX Skylights truly shine. They add a contemporary and unique touch to your home's architecture. The sleek, unobtrusive design of skylights blends seamlessly with various architectural styles, enhancing your home's appeal.

Traditional windows, while classic, may not always offer the same level of design flexibility. Skylights create a sense of openness and spaciousness, making your living spaces feel larger and more inviting. Plus, VELUX Skylights can be equipped with shades and VELUX Active to control the amount of light and maintain your privacy, offering a level of customization that traditional windows can't match.

Low-Maintenance Durability

Maintenance is a consideration for any homeowner, and here again, VELUX Skylights have the edge. Once professionally installed, they are designed to be low-maintenance and highly durable. Their construction is robust, ensuring they can withstand the Canadian climate, from heavy snowfalls to rain and wind.

Traditional windows, while easier to install, may require more maintenance over time. They can be prone to issues like rot, condensation, and air leaks, which can lead to costly repairs and replacements.


VELUX Skylights Are the Ideal Choice for Your Home

When it comes to choosing between skylights and traditional windows for your  home, the benefits of skylights clearly outweigh the alternatives. They offer superior energy efficiency, year-round natural light, modern aesthetics, and low-maintenance durability.

Skylights not only enhance the beauty of your home but also improve its functionality and energy performance, making them the top choice for homeowners who want to brighten their lives and save on energy costs. Don't just settle for ordinary windows; elevate your home with VELUX Skylights.
