With natural light streaming in from above, skylights can significantly change the entire feel of your home, making it warmer and brighter without compromising privacy. Since they deliver more light than traditional windows, skylights also reduce the need for artificial lighting and save energy.

Plus, with the added exposure to natural light shown to have powerful mood boosting benefits, skylights are especially beneficial during our long winter months when getting outdoors is not always a top priority.

Now, thanks to the No Leak Solar Powered "Fresh Air" Skylight by VELUX USA, they offer even more benefits. Proclaimed the most revolutionary skylight on the market in a number of different references, this new product’s solar power means there is no wiring needed to open it up and let fresh air into your home. So, beyond providing free natural light, these skylights are energy contributors, according to the manufacturer.

“Placed at strategic locations, they allow for solar heat gain and optimum natural ventilation,” VELUX reports. “The combined effect of these two factors can be enhanced with blackout blinds or light filtering blinds that provide a flexible home envelope to keep heat in on cold winter nights and out in summer.”

No Leak Skylights by VELUX are available in three main styles - fixed cut down on the use of artificial lighting, ventilating provide the ability to open and sun tunnel low profile, the most economical and efficient way to add natural light in almost any room. Skylight blinds by VELUX control the light and heat that enters a room and come in more than 85 styles and colors, including solar powered.

Both solar skylights and solar blinds qualify for a 30% federal tax credit. Try the VELUX Skylight Planner smartphone/iPad app that allows you to see the dramatic difference a skylight can make in in your home and go to for more information.
