Can VELUX Skylights Be Installed In The Winter?
3 minute read
As this year draws to its climactic close-and quite rightly given the turbulence this new decade has brought to our lives. It is time to turn our attention to the winter that lies ahead. The brisk breeze can often see us enter a state of hibernation for days on end.
Fewer hours in the day make it hard to find the momentum to embrace the elements. It is important to expose ourselves to sunlight so we can soak in that all-important vitamin D. Lack of vitamin D can lead to a drop in morale, imperative during these unprecedented times we find ourselves in.
Well, this year we are doing away with the doom and gloom of 2020. We plan to enter the new year full of hope and prosperity, and we would like to help you do the same! Our VELUX skylight installations are the gift that keeps on giving.
With a versatile design, they can be installed efficiently almost anywhere in your home. Whether you would like to brighten up your hallway or give a new lease of life to old rooms. You can be sure our VELUX windows will continue to shine light into yours and the lives of others.
So to answer the question, can VELUX skylights be installed in the winter? The answer is yes. Not only is it possible, but it is also hugely beneficial to your home over the winter months.
VELUX Skylights Save You Money
Installing a VELUX skylight can save you money on several of your bills, some you may not have even expected. The first is the cost saved on your lighting bills, not forgetting the price point of the lightbulbs themselves.
You can opt for a VELUX installation that reflects the sunlight into your house. Bathing your rooms with beautifully bright natural lighting, eliminating the need to flick that switch. This is great news for the planet as less artificial lighting will decrease your CO2 emissions, reducing your carbon footprint.
In addition to this, the VELUX widows special glazing option will save you money on your heating bills.
The triple glazing feature filters the heat from the sun and locks it inside your home. This will trap the heat in for longer, keeping you and your family toasty during these cold winter months.
To maximise this, a 5-glaze VELUX skylight has been developed to meet the requirements of Passive House. This window offers the absolute best in thermal performance and is the most energy-efficient VELUX window yet!
VELUX Skylights Eliminate Noise
Velux installations also offer the highest noise cancelling technology on the market. Whichever special glazing option you choose, the VELUX skylight guarantees up to 44db of sound reduction to your home.
Busy roads, noisy pedestrians, the sound of the morning birds whose tweets aren’t quite so sweet at 6 am. All of this will become a thing of the past. The Velux skylight will provide you with all the joys of nature, without it disrupting your lifestyle. No distractions allow you to revel in peace and tranquillity, away from the hustle and bustle of the outside world.
VELUX Skylights Keep You Safe
You may be thinking about installing a VELUX skylight because you’re taking the plunge and building the extension of your dreams. Or perhaps your children have flown the nest and the rooms are feeling a little emptier than you’re used to. Though your circumstances may differ, there is one constant: the importance of feeling safe in our own homes.
We know how crucial this is to all of our clients. Because of this, we ensure to use the highest quality security measures that the VELUX window range offers. The special glazing options of the VELUX skylight improves the security of the window itself.
In addition to this, VELUX security locks can be added to strengthen the protection… better to be safe than sorry. It is a simple lock that supports the shutting device. It can also be fitted with a restrictor, so you can control how far your VELUX skylight opens. The certified window offers the highest security on the market, deterring potential threats to your property.
VELUX Skylights Add Money To Your Home
Not only does the VELUX skylight add these benefits to your home, but it adds monetary value too. Skylights are not only pragmatic, but they transform the feel of a room whilst increasing the appearance of its size too.
By using the light as a feature piece, you can draw people in by making it a focal selling point. It is great to consider if you are thinking of selling or renovating your property. Opening the VELUX skylight instantly gives a grander, more free and larger feel to any room you are in.
As the light beams to every corner of the room, it will give a more relaxed and vibrant feel to your home. Leaving guests with a positive impression of your property, and more likely to put in an offer.

Thank you for the windows installation organisation. The windows are really smart and we now usually press the correct open/close switches for the different items. Kevin was very organised with the work, neat, clean and tidy throughout all. Our house is small and the access was a bit tight for them to work. He explained how to operate everything. We were also blessed with dry, all be it very cold weather, for the two installation days.

Lisa - Southampton
Over the last couple of years I have replaced 4 unsuitable roof windows (which wouldn’t pass planning nowadays) with VELUX windows and each time asked Kevin to carry out the works. I am very pleased with the results and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to undertake similar home improvements.
