Meeting H1 Requirements with Skylights

With the new H1 changes just around the corner, many of us have been trying to determine how our designs and products selections will be affected. VELUX have been working with BRANZ to take the guess work out when it comes to VELUX skylights.

Despite the upcoming changes, if you’re using the calculation method, it’s business as usual when choosing VELUX skylights, as they have BRANZ verified R-Values calculated for the horizontal pitch, meaning you shouldn’t notice a difference to what you’re doing today.

For those of you looking to use the schedule method, it’s not until May next year that you’ll see significant changes in required R-Values. To keep things as simple as possible, VELUX has been working with BRANZ to submit a CodeMark Certified alternative solution to MBIE. Subject to review by MBIE, the VELUX schedule method (alternative solution) will be an option for homes meeting the modest criteria; depending on the size of the skylights used, generally allowing the use of up to 3-4 VELUX skylights in a standard NZ home before requiring use of the calculation method.

Whether you use the calculation method or the VELUX schedule method (subject to MBIE review), H1 doesn’t need to be difficult. To learn more, please contact VELUX via email; [email protected].
