Sustainable living

VELUX, the world leader in skylights and roof windows, puts to excellent use our most abundant natural resource – light from above – by developing, manufacturing and marketing environmentally friendly products that provide and control daylight and fresh air in buildings, and products that heat water with solar energy.

High quality, energy efficient skylights are an important part of building today's green friendly homes and buildings. The effect that natural light has on you physically, emotionally and psychologically is well documented. The benefits of natural light can have a profound impact on you personally, while the stewardship of VELUX will positively affect our environment for future generations.

That is why we are proud to be the nation's leading manufacturer of quality skylights. Using the most modern technologies to make our products energy efficient is a top priority. To reap the green benefits associated with top lighting, it is essential to minimize the heat gain associated with UV penetration, while preserving the conditioned air inside your home. To accomplish these goals, we incorporate argon gas between the insulated panes of all our glass products and use low emissivity coatings (Low-E) to make our products some of the most energy efficient in the industry.
