Today, people spend more time than ever indoors, away from nature and under artificial lighting, including light from TV and electronics. Lack of natural light can affect our well-being, from influencing our level of fatigue to increasing our risk for asthma and seasonal affective disorder (SAD).
The good news is that you can let nature and fresh air back in with VELUX® skylights and Sun Tunnels®. Roofworks Roofing & Solar is proud to be Halifax’s #1 VELUX Certified Installer. VELUX’s modern skylight options come with the ability to open and close your skylights, including an integrated rain sensor, so you’re never left worrying that you forgot to close your skylight when a storm blows in.
Skylights allow you to release stale air with the simple touch of a button, so you can enjoy a fresh, cool breeze along with natural light and views, all while protected inside your home.
You also have the option to add a solar-powered blind to enhance the energy performance and light control of your skylight, helping you create the ideal indoor environment. With VELUX ACTIVE smart home technology, your skylights do all the work for you. They can be programmed to work with your home assistant and set parameters.
The system will alert you when it senses poor air quality and you can choose to open your skylight. Solar-powered blinds operate proactively as the system is connected to local weather networks—you don’t even have to think about it!
