How do you bring natural light into interior or North-facing rooms? That dilemma has a solution via the installation of high-tech solar tube skylights. Rather than switching on a light every time you enter an interior room, you can enjoy the benefits of natural light from outside – literally coming in through the roof.
A solar tube skylight is one of the best, most unique and rapidly growing options available in Madison WI. They have become the most logical and affordable option to many in existing homes and condominiums. Readily available, they take very little time to install and can be added to both flat and sloped roofs.
The design and decorating trend to brighter, more open rooms is well-established in Madison WI and a solar tube skylight can enhance the effect even in older neighborhoods where stately homes often have fewer windows. Rather than a large remodeling project, adding a sun tunnel skylight or two can brighten even a small interior space.
Solar tubes, often call a “sun tunnel” can be positioned to direct natural light to a specific spot. A 10-inch diameter sun tunnel can funnel enough sunlight to brighten a 10- by 10-foot area. A 14-inch diameter solar tube skylight can brighten a 14- by 14-foot area.
Adding Solar Tube Skylight Technology
Solar tube skylights have been created specifically to be retro-fit into existing homes. A sun tunnel can usually be installed in about two hours. Costs vary with style, size and design.
While literature may say they are “easy to install,” the professionals at Sims Exteriors and Remodeling caution homeowners not to be “penny-wise and pound foolish.” Easy for a professional with all the correct tools and years of experience, yes. As a DIY project…maybe not. Factory-certified and trained installers make the job look easy and they can protect you from potential problems like water leaks, condensation and related issues down the road. When you choose quality product like Sim’s VELUX sun tunnels, you also get a reliable warranted from both the manufacturer and the installer.
Sun Tunnel skylights have come a long way since the early designs. Now, some models provide interior lights so you can switch your solar tube on at night, too. Some offer exhaust fans and even daylight dimming options. The rooms sun tunnel tubes enhance is a long list…bathrooms, mudrooms, laundry rooms, hallways, kitchens, family room, walk-in closets.
