FORT MILL, S.C., June 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Homeowners can maximize energy efficiency and take advantage of a 30 percent federal tax credit with the new VELUX Energy Performance Model skylight featuring automated energy performance.
The Energy Performance Model combines an ENERGY STAR®-certified VELUX fixed or manual fresh air skylight with a factory-installed, double-pleated, solar-powered, blackout blind and a preprogrammed Intelligent Touch Remote Control in one box.
"When closed, the double pleated blind boosts the overall energy performance of the ENERGY STAR-certified skylight by 40 percent," said Ross Vandermark, national product manager for VELUX. "And the blinds are fully automated when the room is not in use, closing during warm summer days and cold winter nights to block light and insulate."
With a 30 percent federal tax credit, homeowners will receive an average of $730 in federal tax credit eligibility.
"The federal tax credit makes this product very affordable for homeowners looking to make a big impact on their home décor as well as their utility bills," Vandermark said.
