No leak solar powered fresh air skylights are "godfathered"

FORT MILL, SC, June 08, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- How often is a top-of-the line home improvement product less expensive than the entry-level model? Not every day, but once in a while homeowners, like some characters in The Godfather series, are offered a deal they can't refuse.

That could be the case with Energy Star-qualified no leak solar powered fresh air skylights from VELUX America. A combination of a 30 percent federal tax credit, plus a $200 cash rebate direct from Velux from now until August 15, 2014, make the numbers favor homebuyers. A venting fresh air model, with all the bells and whistles, including rain sensor and remote control, can be less expensive than a fixed skylight for either replacement purposes or for a new installation. Remote controlled solar powered blinds, as well as installation costs for both products, are also eligible for the federal tax credit.

"A national trade publication selected these skylights as the most innovative window from a large manufacturer in 2013, while leading consumer magazines picked them for a 2013 innovation award and as one of the top 100 building products of 2013," says Ross Vandermark, national product manager for Velux America.

The skylights carry a ten-year no leak warranty and feature Clean, Quite and Safe glass plus a touchpad remote unit that controls both the skylights and blinds. The highly energy efficient glass keeps the skylights cleaner and reduces outside noise.

Increase Energy Performance Ratings with Solar Powered Blinds

Adding solar powered blinds, available in designer colors and patterns, to the skylights further increases energy efficiency to reduce power bills. A blackout blind can improve the energy performance rating as much as 45 percent, a light filtering blind by as much as 39 percent, and a Venetian blind by as much as 34 percent.

To illustrate how skylights and blinds would look, room by room, in your home, there's a Skylight Planner App available. Just download it, take pictures of your rooms, and overlay skylight/blind combinations until you've found the perfect fit.
