Energy renovation: replace your roof windows

The energy renovation of houses involves various interventions on the building, after an analysis of the thermal weaknesses of the house. Attics, especially when they are convertible, are a particularly sensitive part of it. In addition to the need to insulate the roof panels from the inside or the outside, we must look at openings with roof windows. Their replacement is often a necessity.

The new VELUX® roof windows benefit from technological advances that allow them to benefit from excellent thermal insulation. A glazing construction with an insulating blade filled with 15 mm thick argon suppresses the cold wall phenomenon. This glazing, essential to protect itself from the cold, also avoids the summer overheating: it stops indeed 77% of the heat in summer, without harming the passage of the light. Insulating blocks placed in the nerve areas of the window contribute to a better airtightness.
