Hawaii’s abundant sunshine makes it ideal to have skylights in the home. If you drive around your neighborhood, you’ll probably see dozens of homes with skylights installed. You may even have some in your home already. But chances are, they are closed.
Why? It’s possible your skylights were not designed to open, which is known as fixed skylights, or maybe they were designed to open (articulating skylights), but it’s a hassle to manually open and close them. RevoluSun Smart Home has found that Velux skylights and sun tunnels are the solution to getting the most out of your natural lighting options with energy-efficient technology and ventilation.
“Natural lighting is the obvious benefit of skylights, but many people overlook the benefit of the fresh air you could be receiving from an articulating skylight,” stated RevoluSun Smart Home general manager David Gorman. “The Velux ‘Fresh Air’ skylight is a wireless, solar-powered and remote-controlled skylight. With the push of a button, you can control every skylight in your home, and with their built-in rain sensor, you never have to worry about moisture getting into your home because the skylight will automatically close. With this innovative solution, homeowners can now receive the full benefit of skylights: fresh air and natural light, which of course results in lower electricity bills.”
Velux PV-powered fresh air skylights are eligible for a 30-percent federal tax credit due to their integrated PV technology. Velux PV-powered fresh air skylights are suitable for new installations and retrofitting existing skylights.
Velux sun tunnels capture daylight at the roof and carry it through a silver-infused tunnel to deliver light into the home where skylights won’t work. Velux sun tunnels provide an economical approach to bringing the benefits of natural light into any area of the home. It can take the darkest rooms and illuminate them with the beauty of natural light. Sun tunnel accessories include an electric light kit that makes them functional at night.
“Both of these products are very easy to incorporate into your home, either by retrofitting an existing skylight or having one of our certified professionals design and install a new skylight for you,” said Gorman.
