Venting skylights are used to bring fresh air and circulation into a room and operate with the use of a continuous hinge, similar to a ridge vent's function. A venting skylight has a higher profile than that of a ridge vent and offers better air and water performance along with a higher thermal value. Like a ridge vent, venting skylights can be utilized in any glass structure, such as greenhouses and sunrooms. Whereas ridge vents are typically used in-system, an operable system can also be attached to an existing traditional construction roof as a standalone unit. If providing fresh air or extra daylight to a room is your objective, an operable skylight, whether manual or motorized, is a very good solution.
