Install a Solatube Daylighting System to Brighten Your Home

June 2, 2011

Sun tunnelHow do you light the rooms in your home? A Solatube Daylighting System is one functional design option to consider, especially if you have a tight area in which a standard skylight isn’t an option.

What is a Solatube Daylighting System? This eco-friendly, maintenance-free solar tube captures light through a dome on the roof and channels it into the home through an internal reflective system.

Here at CAGE Design Build, we work with Sunlight Concepts when clients want a Solatube Daylighting System. More efficient than a traditional drywall skylight shaft, the Solatube fits between rafters and can be installed without structural modification. On the ceiling inside the home, a diffuser spreads the light evenly throughout the room.

Benefits to a Solatube Daylighting System include:

  • Exceptional lighting.
  • Cost-effective product and installation costs.
  • Installation is fast, clean and easy – professionals can install the product in two hours.
  • It doesn’t require structural reframing, drywalling or painting.
  • It can be installed almost anywhere – the leakproof design fits all roof types.
  • It’s an eco-friendly option – you can turn off electric lights during the day, which saves your pocketbook in addition to helping the environment.
  • It’s good for you – increasing daily exposure to natural light can enhance mental and physical well-being, boost concentration and energy levels and more.
