Creating a Healthy and Comfortable Indoor Climate with Vario by VELUX

When it comes to our homes, creating a comfortable and healthy indoor climate is vital. We're talking about temperature, air quality, and daylight significantly affecting our well-being and overall living experience. In this article, we will dig a little deeper into the importance of the indoor climate, ways to improve it, and how Vario by VELUX products can help you achieve an optimal indoor environment in your renovation, extension or newly built home.

What is indoor climate?

The indoor climate is the conditions within a building that affect the comfort and health of its residents. It involves maintaining appropriate temperature levels, ensuring good air quality, and providing sufficient daylight. A well-designed indoor climate creates a harmonious, pleasant living space, promoting well-being and a happier home.

Why is Indoor Climate and Temperature Important?

The average person spends 90% of their time indoors and 2/3 of that time in their homes! The significance of having plenty of natural daylight and well-ventilated living spaces couldn’t be greater. Read on to learn more about why maintaining a suitable indoor climate is crucial:

  1. Comfort: A comfortable indoor temperature promotes relaxation, productivity, and well-being. It plays a significant role in our overall well-being. When we're too hot or cold, our bodies can become stressed, affecting our sleep quality, concentration, and immune function. Maintaining a comfortable indoor climate is essential to support our physical and mental health.
  2. Energy Efficiency: Proper temperature control helps optimise energy usage and reduces utility bills. By keeping a handle on your indoor temperature, you can enjoy a cosy space and cut down on costs, helping both your wallet and the planet breathe a sigh of relief.
  3. Health and Sleep Quality: It's no secret that a good night's sleep is vital for our well-being. Ensuring proper temperature control and ventilation in your home can create a comfortable environment that promotes restful sleep and supports your well-being.
  4. Odours, allergens and pollutants: Poor indoor climate and temperature can lead to unpleasant odours, allergens, and pollutants lingering in your home. Inadequate ventilation and high humidity levels can cause odours to accumulate, while allergens like dust mites and mould thrive in such conditions, triggering allergies and possible respiratory issues.  

How can you improve your indoor climate?

Temperature Control and Air Quality:

Maintaining good indoor air quality and optimal indoor temperature is crucial for a comfortable and healthy home. With Vario by VELUX opening rooflights,  you can regulate the temperature inside via natural ventilation, ensuring a pleasant living environment. They allow fresh air to circulate, reducing the accumulation of pollutants and odours and creating a cleaner and healthier indoor atmosphere.

Take it to the next level and ensure comfortable temperatures and air quality with automated ventilation at your fingertips. Whether on the go or in the home, operate our opening roof windows and electric smart roller blinds  with your smartphone via VELUX Active for a fully automated and sensor-based experience. 

Daylight Optimisation:

Daylight plays a vital role in our well-being and comfort. Bespoke skylights by Vario by VELUX maximise the influx of natural light, transforming your space into a bright and inviting sanctuary. Natural light not only enhances the aesthetics of your home but also has numerous benefits for your physical and mental health. Roof lights allow twice the amount of light in compared to façade windows of the same size. So, you can only imagine the wonders a Vario skylight can do for darker and cooler north-facing rooms.

With our custom-made rooflights, you can optimise insulation, minimise heat loss, and reduce energy consumption by reducing the need for artificial light during daylight hours, resulting in a more sustainable and cost-effective home.
