    Planning for 3 velux in our kitchen (room of about 25m2). We need the extra light but it's a north facing kitchen and Im a bit concerned about heat loss? What are people's experiences? Would 2 be better? Is it worth upgrading to a better heat retention spec?

    I have 4 in my north facing extension.
    The space was insulated well so haven’t noticed any negative heat loss and that extension space is still the warmest in the house.

    That's great to hear gumbo. Did you get standard spec velux or pay for superior glass?
