If you’re keen on bringing more natural light into your home, a tubular skylight would be a good addition to consider. Designed to look like a tunnel that passes from the roof to the ceiling, it is ideal for adding natural light to small spaces.
1. Zero Glare and Heat Gain
Tubular skylights are similar to how spotlights look, and they work great for smaller rooms or spaces that don’t require as much light as others. Typically, they are completely closed off and can’t be opened. Because of this, they can provide good insulation for your home and keep the summer heat and winter cold out.
2. Easy to Install
A tubular skylight is typically composed of three parts:
A light-collecting dome mounted on the roofing;
A diffusing lens mounted on or recessed in the ceiling; and
A mirrored pipe that connects the two.
However, unlike traditional skylights, tubular skylights don’t require the construction of a light well. Moreover, they only need minimal drywall work and roof cutting – which makes the installation of a tubular skylight easier and faster. According to experts, tubular skylight installation can usually be done in a couple of hours.
Tubular skylights are usually less expensive than other daylighting options in terms of material and installation costs. And, since they have insulating properties too, they can contribute in the energy efficiency of your home and help lower heating and cooling expenses.
