New VELUX Energy Performance Model Skylights Combine Energy Efficiency with Cost Savings for Homeowners
Homeowners can maximize energy efficiency and take advantage of a 30 percent federal tax credit with the new VELUX Energy Performance Model skylight featuring automated energy performance.
“When closed, the double pleated blind boots the overall energy performance of the Energy Star-certified skylight by 40 percent,” said Ross Vandermark, national product manager for VELUX. “And the blinds are fully automated when the room is not in use, closing during the warm summer days and cold winter nights to block light and insulate.”
With a 30 percent federal tax credit, homeowners will receive an average of $730 in federal tax credit eligibility.
“The federal tax credit makes this product very affordable for homeowners looking to make a big impact on their home decor as well as their utility bills,” Vandermark said.
VELUX is an Energy Star partner and has been recognized as a Partner of the Year. For more information, visit www.whyskylights.com or naturalightsolar.com.
A newly purchased Marin County home was in need of a new roof and brighter interior spaces. While it had existing traditional VELUX Skylights in good condition, the homeowners wanted to add four VELUX SUN TUNNELs.
When our work was complete, Wedge Roofing returned to install the white vinyl roofing, sealing the vinyl up the sides of the Sun Tunnel curbs for a seamless waterproofing.
If it’s time for a new roof on your home and you think you might want to add skylights, give us a call for a free estimate at 707-527-5330. Likewise, if you want to add skylights and it’s nearing time for a new roof, consider having both done at the same time. New roofs and skylights are happier together.
When the tube seams are connected and aligned properly with screws and tape, there are no places for bugs to enter, no pieces shifting down from the ceiling, and lots of natural light.
If you are experiencing a problem with your old tube skylight, give us a call to schedule a service appointment at 707-527-5330.
