VELUX VCS solar powered "Fresh Air" skylights light up your home and provide ventilation using only the power of the sun. These premium solar skylights feature a solar panel that captures any available daylight and uses it to recharge a highly efficient battery-powered operator and control system.
The remotely controlled solar panel of the fresh air skylights does not have to be exposed to direct sunlight to function. Meaning the solar roof window skylight will work on cloudy days and with indirect light. The skylight window can be opened to create a chimney effect, drawing air upward to improve air quality within your home.
ROOM-DARKENING BLINDS INCLUDED
In addition, this skylight ceiling model includes a factory-installed solar-powered room darkening blind that utilizes a double-pleated honeycomb structure with an interior aluminum coating to block even the brightest sunlight, making it ideal for bedrooms, entertainment rooms, or any other space where light control is important. VCS residential skylights are ideal for replacing existing curb mount skylights, including old plastic bubble skylights. The Velux fixed skylight can be installed on a flat roof at 0° up to a 60° roof pitch on a site-built curb.

Fresh Air skylights are one of the most advanced skylights by the renowned skylights producer Velux. Not only do they feature the energy-saving solar-powered skylight which needs no wiring, but they are also expertly designed with advanced rain sensors that close the skylight automatically in cases of rain.
This curb mount skylight also comes with a “No Leak Promise” and one of the most premium glass designs seen in a skylight – the Neat® glass. The quiet and clean glass uses silicon dioxide resulting in a much smoother surface for even water dispersion and fast evaporation.
HOW IT WORKS
This Velux skylight design works through the small, yet efficient, solar panel. This advanced solar panel collects the daylight (no need for constant sunlight) to charge the internal battery which powers the operating system of the solar skylight. The result is easier control, simpler installation, and reduced electricity bills.
HOW TO CONTROL
Besides the standard remote control, this Velux ceiling model can be controlled via VELUX ACTIVE and NETATMO which are additional devices that feature smart sensors to monitor temperature, humidity, and CO2 levels. Based on predefined sensors, these remote devices then open/close your skylights and blinds. Additionally, the VELUX ACTIVE app allows you to control the skylights and binds via your smartphone.
