VELUX Skylights and Energy Savings

When it comes to harnessing natural light and reducing energy consumption, VELUX skylights stand out as a beacon of efficiency and sustainability. In a country as diverse as Canada, with its varying climates and energy demands, finding ways to lower energy bills while maintaining a comfortable living environment is paramount. VELUX skylights offer a smart solution that can make a significant difference.

Harnessing Natural Light

Canadian winters are known for their long nights and reduced daylight hours. This makes lighting a home a significant portion of the energy bill. VELUX skylights are strategically designed to capture and distribute natural light effectively. They act as a conduit for sunlight to flood your living spaces, reducing the need for artificial lighting during the day. This not only cuts down on electricity consumption but also enhances the ambiance of your home.


Enhancing Thermal Comfort

Maintaining a comfortable indoor temperature year-round is a challenge. VELUX skylights, especially those with energy-efficient glazing, contribute to better insulation. They help regulate indoor temperatures by minimizing heat loss during the winter and preventing excessive heat gain during the summer. This leads to reduced reliance on heating and cooling systems, translating into lower energy bills.


Ventilation and Fresh Air

Proper ventilation is crucial for maintaining indoor air quality and temperature control. VELUX skylights come equipped with smart ventilation options that allow you to bring in fresh air without relying on mechanical systems. In the warmer months, you can use skylights to release hot air, while in colder seasons, they can help with passive ventilation, reducing the need for air conditioning and heating, respectively.


Energy-Efficient Shades

We offer a range of energy-efficient shades that complement skylights perfectly. These accessories allow you to control the amount of light and heat entering your home, further enhancing energy savings. They can be programmed to open and close automatically, maximizing the efficiency of your skylights.





VELUX skylights offer a solution to lower energy bills and create a more comfortable, sustainable living environment. Their innovative design, energy efficiency features, and commitment to eco-friendly materials align with the values of many Canadians seeking to reduce their carbon footprint and save on energy costs. By investing in VELUX skylights, you're not only brightening your home but also making a positive impact on your wallet and the planet!
