Do you have a skylight? Is it a single layer glass skylight or the “bubble” shaped acrylic skylight? Hopefully, it’s holding up against the extreme climate of your roof. But chances are you may have noticed leaks after heavy rains or a “yellowed” effect on the acrylic. These are some sure-tell signs that a skylight replacement is in your future.
But here is another important reason why upgrading your home with a new skylight makes sense. Heat build up. This is happening because older acrylic “bubble” type or single pane glass skylights allow heat to come into the home and once that heat has entered the home it can’t escape. That heat then radiates down into your living space, making hot days seem hotter. The solution? A SMART skylight from RevoluSun.
We are proud to offer the Velux PV powered skylights. These skylights are manufactured to minimize heat gain and come with a remote control that allows you to open the skylight to provide an escape for hot air. But what about the rain? These are SMART skylights like we mentioned before, that have a built in rain sensor that will automatically close themselves if it starts to rain. They can also be outfitted with shades for times when you want less light. These shades are also controlled by the remote. A 30% federal tax credit for the PV-powered version makes this upgrade a no-brainer.
