Skylights bring a unique character to any home or business. They bring a sense of the magnificent to the everyday and connect structures to the outside world. Skylights also showcase natural light, providing you with an eco-friendly way to illuminate your space. We rely on Solatube’s masterful tubular skylights to bring the glory of outdoor light into your indoor environment.
Tubular skylights can deliver all the benefits and beauty of natural light into areas where it was previously impossible, such as interior spaces like closets, bathrooms, or offices. Solar tubes (also known as sun tubes or sun tunnels) filter natural light into spaces to offset traditional lighting. Solar tubes capture the sun’s rays and transmit them indoors. Tubular skylights harness this light through an acrylic dome that reflects low angle illumination through the reflective tubing, which then maximizes the light’s impact. The light is taken through the diffuser, providing illumination through the home or office space.
Benefits of Tubular Skylights
Why do we believe in tubular skylights? For one thing, their design means that you’ll get more illumination with a solar tube than with a traditional skylight. Another benefit is that interior rooms will finally be able to receive natural light. Due to their small size, these energy efficient skylights maximize light while effectively protecting your home or business from the heat of summer or the cold of winter. This green approach to lighting can drastically cut down on the need for traditional electric lighting; after all, sunlight costs nothing. Tubular skylights can also greatly reduce noise pollution and are often more cost effective than traditional skylights.
Not only are there significant green benefits to energy efficient skylights, but there are also excellent emotional benefits. Human beings were meant to live in the light. When we lack exposure to natural light, we may feel physiologically impacted with depression or even with seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Simply put, sunlight makes us feel joyful by triggering serotonin production. The light of the sun also helps us sleep regularly and be able to focus.
