Did you know that ‘lux’ is the Latin word for light?

We’ve put together our top four benefits of having Velux windows installed. If you’re considering them in your home, check out Stuart & Moffat Roofing.
Benefit number one: Improved air quality
The ‘Ve’ in Velux stands for ‘ventilation’. The installation of roof windows can greatly improve the circulation of air around your home.
Having this free-flowing air means that the quality of your indoor atmosphere is noticeably improved after installation.
As well as the air being more refreshing and healthy to breathe, the improved ventilation helps to reduce condensation and risks of damp.
Benefit number two: Natural light
The frames of Velux roof windows are designed to be as narrow as is physically possible, ensuring that the maximum amount of sunlight can pass through the glazing.
Studies show that increased exposure to natural light, as opposed to artificial light, improves both mental and physical health.
Benefit number three: Beautiful aesthetics
Velux windows bring a fresh and visually appealing look to your room and home. There are many styles and design options available to coordinate with the existing look and feel of your home.
Natural light makes rooms appear larger, airier, and more spacious.
Benefit number four: Reduced energy bills
Improved access to natural light means that your electric lights can be switched off for longer, meaning that you can preserve a lot more energy.
Velux roof windows bring with them excellent insulating properties that can help to cut down on your energy bills.
