Since the beginning of time, people have always used the warmth and light produced by the sun. With the advancement of technology we are starting to realize the many benefits that natural light has on us. Many homes are built with many gloomy areas and let’s face it light being in a building or house full of light bulbs is depressing. You can now solve these issues by installing Sun Tubes in your home or office. At first it can be a couple hundred dollar investment but the countless benefits the come with it make it well worth your time.
Many of you probably have no clue what a sun tube even is, and how it can bring natural light in your home. Basically sun tubes can be installed by cutting a whole in your roof, this is where a flashing and dome are placed to prevent leaks and heat from entering your home. From there a reflective light tube goes through your attic and stops at your ceiling, where the ceiling kit that spreads light will be placed. Installation of these are super easy and takes a first timer only a couple hours with the right tools. If that sounds scary to you then you can hire a contractor in your location that can do the job for you. These work for flat, pitched, tile and aluminum roofs.
Solar Tube Skylights can help lower your energy bills because you won’t need to use your electric during the day hours, which adds up over the year. Another great benefit is the light produced by the sun tunnel doesn’t add annoying glare and doesn’t allow heat or cold air to enter your home. It’s a great way to add more light into the dark areas of your home right away at an investment that is affordable to everyone.
