Essential Info

A room filled with natural sunlight just has a different, more relaxed feeling than that of those filled with electric incandescent, CFL, or LED lighting. Studies have even shown that natural sunlight can help aid with various types of anxiety disorders, such as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which can arise in anyone as a result of not receiving enough sunlight. The addition of an Electric Venting FVE Home Skylight from Fakro is a simple solution to adding more natural sunlight to just about any home. Installation of a Fakro Venting Skylight can be done in roughly an afternoon by an above average do-it-yourselfer, or trained professional, on a home with a roof pitch (angle) between 15° and 85°. The Venting Skylight can be opened/closed using the integrated control system, and a mosquito screen allows the window to be left open during the day or night without fear that bugs will be able to come and go as they desire. The leak-proof window also has built in sensor that will automatically close it starts to rain and double-glazing will let the light in while at the same time block out the heat. With a Venting Home Skylight owner's should also see a reduction in their electric bill as the addition of more natural lighting will help cut down on the dependency for electric lighting. It will also help a home receive more natural airflow throughout the day and give warm air a place to escape through the roof helping to keep a home cool during the summertime. The FVE Home Skylight is ideal for installation in areas where it is more sensible, or safer, to use natural light as opposed to electric lighting. Each Electric Venting Skylight includes an installation template to help ensure accurate cutting on the roof for the Skylight's opening. Either an ELA or EH/A-A flashing (both sold separately) is needed for correct installation of the FVE Electric Venting Skylight to provide protection against the elements and to ensure proper drainage away from the window. This Fakro Skylight is ENERGY STAR® qualified and comes with a 10 year warranty on the skylight, and 20 year warranty on the insulated glass unit.
