Brightening up your home and letting sun into your home has never been so easy. Even those who have a flat roof can now benefit from the warmth of natural light with Solatube sun tunnel kits. Solatube sun tunnel kits are an eco-friendly, low maintenance and skylight alternative that can bring up to 13m2 of bright, natural sunlight to a room. Solatube International are the best-known brand in the industry for these sun tunnel kits, and their products offer unrivalled performance, quality and innovation. Solatube daylighting systems are also known as Tubular Daylighting Devices (TDD) which capture sunlight using a rooftop dome, once the sunlight has been captured it is then transferred indoors through a reflective tube that runs from the roof to the ceiling. The natural light is then evenly dispersed throughout your interior using a diffuser. Using a sun tunnel kit is one of the best methods of transferring natural light into your home, especially when you have limited windows and are looking for a cost effective or 'green alternative'.

Solatube daylighting systems have developed the future of room lighting, and it's likely that as the world becomes more proactive about looking after the environment that they will eventually phase out electric lights, and even energy efficient bulbs.  With the arrival of the Light Emitting Diode, a semiconductor that gives off light, Solatube jumped at the opportunity of creating the worlds most efficient 24/7 lighting fixture by incorporating the light emitting diode into their ingenious daylighting products. As a result, the company Solatube Limited launched their Solatube smart LED system, which is an automated and energy efficient lighting solution which can cut your energy usage by up to 94%.

There are many benefits to installing a solatube sun tunnel kit in your home that can help your life in many more aspects than just saving money. Here are some of the main reasons why a tubular daylighting device will enhance your home;

  • Installation is incredibly fast, clean and easy, with no structural re-framing, tunnelling or drywalling required. The product can be installed  in less than 2 hours, with little mess or disruption.
  • Using a sun tunnel kit is the 'green' way to go, you can still benefit from natural light during the day without having to switch on electric lights during the day, hence helping you to lower energy bills and environmental pollution.
  • The light output of sun tunnel kits offers exceptional lighting in your home, providing the same amount of light that you would expect from a skylight.
  • Due to their compact and flexible design, these can be placed anywhere in your interior, even in the smallest places or basement rooms where daylighting would never normally be an option.
  • Several studies have actually shown that the sun tunnel kits are good for your well being, especially for those who suffer from S.A.D. The daily exposure to the natural light can enhance mental and physical well-being, energy levels and boost your concentration throughout the day.
That's only just the beginning of the many benefits that you can reap from installing a solatube sun tunnel in your home.
