Insulated Skylights. Aerogel is an ultra-efficient translucent insulator that’s been used in commercial skylights since 2003. Now it’s available for the residential market. According to the maker, Wasco skylights with Lumira Aerogel deliver more than twice the thermal performance of a typical insulated glass skylight and reduce sound transmission while providing full-spectrum diffused light. Lumira Aerogel is available as an option on all of Wasco’s skylights in the E-Class, Curb-Mount, and Architectural Series. Prices for the treated skylights start at about $250.
