Why choose VELUX windows for your Surrey home?

As the original roof window brand established in 1941, VELUX windows has remained the most trusted and well-known by consumers and industry professionals alike. This, together with the quality of the product is why we choose to offer VELUX to our customers.

There are a number of reasons why VELUX has earned this reputation and continued to outshine its competitors. Below are some key examples on why you should choose VELUX windows to be installed by Sheerwater in your Surrey home and beyond.

How secure are VELUX windows?

When it comes to roof windows, security is often one of our customers’ main concerns. Although competitor brands such as Fakro may have deterrent systems in place, the way in which modern materials used by VELUX have been strengthened and the stronglocks used in the design, make it the most secure roof window currently on the market.

The addition of safety glazing means that not only are VELUX windows secure against potential intruders, but also weather resistant, with options to add specialised glazing for additional privacy and noise reduction. Though VELUX isn’t alone in offering a range of glazing options, competitors like Keylight are unable to match the combinations we can offer to customers.

Are VELUX windows energy efficient?

With rising energy prices and the cost of living on everyone’s mind, energy efficiency is at the heart of VELUX’s design, with its latest models being 115% more efficient than their predecessors. Competitor brand Keylight employs an integrated thermal collar to improve efficiency, whilst U-values for both glazing units and the rest of the window are available from Fakro. However, neither brand is as focused on improving against its own models.

Specialised VELUX ThermoTechnology ensures minimal energy usage, with a basic U-value of 1.3 W/m 2 K, whilst additional glazing for extra insulation is also available.

The health benefits of VELUX windows

One of the huge bonuses of installing VELUX windows in your home is the associated health benefits they bring. Not only will they allow more daylight to enter the property, increasing mood and productivity, but the ventilation bar which comes as standard with VELUX allows a constant stream of fresh air in and out of the room.

Whilst competitors stop here, with VELUX you can opt to add a VELUX ACTIVE home kit, which monitors the humidity, temperature and CO2 in your home using an automated sensor-based ventilation system.

Are VELUX windows environmentally friendly?

Sustainability is a core focus for the VELUX brand, making it the market leader against competitors in this field too. Current models only incorporate certified wood and, looking to the future, VELUX will become Lifetime Carbon Neutral by 2041, with all windows due to contain 50% less CO2 and packaging to use 100% recyclable, single materials by 2030.
