What could be better than a skylight or roof window bringing natural light into your living space? A skylight or roof window that also brings in fresh air! Most manufacturers offer skylights and roof windows that also open to let in fresh air (or let out hot, smoke-filled or malodorous air).
A venting skylight costs more than a fixed skylight, but it’s worth the extra cost to be able to ventilate a room quickly by opening the skylight. Manufacturers offer both manually operated windows (opened with an extension pole) and motorized units that allow you to open or close the window with the flick of a switch.
