Posted By on Jun 5, 2019 |


Tubular SkylightsTubular skylights, also known as sun tunnels, are great energy solutions for both residential and commercial properties. Simply explained, a window or opening sealed by very strong clear material will be placed on the roof of your property. This lets the natural sunlight in.

By choosing to have tubular skylights installed, you can expect the following benefits and advantages:

  • Get more energy savings for your household. You don’t have to turn on all the lights during the daytime.
  • Tubular skylights, when made by a great contractor, looks beautiful.
  • You are contributing to saving the environment because by using less energy, you are also lessening your carbon footprint.
  • Tubular skylights can be positioned in a way that even hard-to-reach areas by natural sunlight can be accessed such as closet spaces.

This is not a DIY project. It is absolutely necessary for you to call for expert assistance if you want to install tubular skylights. This is because:

  • A part of your roof will be opened. One small mistake can cause very expensive roof damages.
  • When a tubular skylight is not properly installed, you may not get the amount of sunlight you need.
  • There’s also the chance for roof leaks especially during the rainy season with improper installation of tubular skylights.

If you are planning to install sun tunnels or tubular skylights for your home, call for assistance from licensed experts. More often than not, local solar power contractors offer this great service. Consult with them and know more about your options. Ask them for free estimates!
