Welcome to part 4 of 4 (for now) of our skylight parts series! Today we're talking about the VELUX Fixed Skylight.
About the Skylight
The VELUX Fixed Skylight allows you to have natural light in areas of your home you'd never thought possible! Whether your space is set up as a work area, game room, man cave, or an art studio, you can add natural light and a sky view with fixed skylights.
The VELUX Fixed Skylight can also be eligible for our Go Solar program when you pair it with any of our factory-installed, solar-powered blinds. This gives you a 30% federal tax credit based on the entire cost of product and installation - but only this year! After 2019, the credit goes down to 26% in 2020 and 22% in 20201 before going away altogether.
The Different Parts of Your Skylight
Time to take on the different parts of your Fixed Skylight, which looks like this:
Now, here's what those numbers mean:
- Clean, Quiet & Safe Glass: The VELUX Fixed Skylight comes standard with our Clean, Quiet & Safe Glass. Made with Neat® glass, a silicon dioxide coating makes it exceptionally smooth so water sheets off and evaporates quickly, greatly reducing water spotting. Since this glass is thicker than other glass types, it also reduces unwanted noise by up to 25% less than standard double pane glass and up to 50% less than a plastic skylight.
- Daylight: Fixed skylights offer a great opportunity to incorporate more daylight and sky views into your home. They're also compatible with VELUX blinds so you can control the amount of daylight coming in at any time.
- Skylight Frame & Flashing: Our Fixed Skylights qualify for our No Leak Warranty, thanks to their frame and VELUX flashing. The warranty offers 10 years of protection on installation, plus 20 years on glass, 10 years on product, and 5 years on blinds.
