VELUX VCS solar powered "Fresh Air" skylights light up your home and provide ventilation using only the power of the sun. They feature a solar panel that captures any available daylight and uses it to recharge a highly efficient battery powered operator and control system. The solar panel does not have to be exposed to direct sunlight to function, so it will work on cloudy days and with indirect light. The skylight can be opened to create a chimney effect, drawing air upward to improve air quality within your home. VCS skylights are ideal for replacing existing curb mount skylights, including old plastic bubble skylights. They can be installed on a flat roof at 0° up to a 60° roof pitch on a site-built curb. Bringing natural light into a home through a skylight decreases the need for artificial light while maintaining privacy.
