What is a Solar Tube?
Installing a solar tube is one of the more exciting ways and most affordable ways to bring natural light into any dark area in your home. Solar tubes have a variety of names from tubular skylight, sun tube and sun tunnel. Solar tubes have different diameters with a mirror like interior. The interior acts like a mirror which brings light down the tube and into your room. Solar tubes are installed through your roof and have a weather-proof plastic globe cap on the roof. The light from a solar tube is all natural, offers warm indirect light which is the equivalent light of two to three 100 watt bulbs. Solar tubes are relatively inexpensive when compared to a sky light and there is no new paint, drywall and alterations to the roof or roof trusses.
