NOT ALL PRODUCTS ARE EQUAL SO IT PAYS TO DO YOUR HOMEWORK. HERE’S WHAT TO LOOK FOR:

Buy The Brand Name Solatube® International Inc. has consistently been at the forefront of technology, with copycat products simply following on its coattails. With its long reputation for quality and innovation, “Solatube” is the brand name in the market. Installing a Solatube Daylighting System ensures that you have a product that utilizes the most advanced technology available. Lesser brands simply fail to perform to the same standard.

Seek The Best Light Quality Technology makes a tremendous difference in the lighting performance. The Solatube Daylighting System is the only product line with Spectralight® Infinity, a revolutionary reflective tubing material that can transfer up to 500 percent more daylight than any other material currently used in the industry. With Solatube Daylighting Systems, all you see is the brightest, cleanest and whitest natural light possible.

Look for the ENERGY STAR® Label This widely-recognized, enhanced energy-efficiency rating means that the product has met the stringent requirements of the Energy Star program through the U.S. Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Think Long-Term Cutting corners may save a few bucks on the front end, but it could put you at risk for expensive repairs down the road. The Solatube Daylighting System includes an innovative moisture control system that ensures the most air- and water-tight installation ever for ultimate peace of mind.
Consider Adaptability A Tubular Daylighting Device can be installed almost anywhere, in tight spaces, and in rooms without direct roof access. Solatube International takes this flexibility further by offering a zero-to-90-degree extension tube that can accommodate even the trickiest of installation challenges without compromising lighting performance.

Factor in Function The Solatube Daylighting System can be “accessorized” with a Light Add-On Kit for night, a Ventilation Add-On Kit for damp locations, and an exclusive Daylight Dimmer to control the level of daylight at the flip of the switch.

Remember that Beauty Counts Too Don’t settle for one-size-fits-all models. Our Designer Touches feature a variety of ceiling diffuser options, which offer not only a unique look at the ceiling level, but also allow you to customize your daylighting experience.

What Every Homeowner Should Know Before Buying a Tubular Daylighting Device

Why Purchase A Tubular Daylighting Device?

It provides exceptional lighting. The light output is incredible, providing as much light as you would expect from a skylight many times its size.

It is cost-effective. Tubular Daylighting Devices cost considerably less than other daylighting options, such as windows and skylights, including both product and installation costs.

Installing it is fast, clean and easy. They require no structural reframing, tunneling, drywalling or painting. Build-It Green can usually install the product in less than two hours.

It can go almost anywhere. The compact and flexible design of TDDs allow them to be installed in just about any room, including rooms without direct roof access and smaller spaces where daylighting would usually not be an option.

It is “Green.” TDDs allow you to switch off electric lights during the day, which provides savings on energy bills and also reduces environmental pollution.

It is actually good for you. It has been shown in several prominent studies that increasing daily exposure to natural light can enhance mental and physical well-being, boost concentration and energy levels and a variety of other unexpected perks

How does a Solatube Daylighting System work?

The Solatube Daylighting System captures light through a dome on the roof and channels it down through our internal reflective system. This tubing is far more efficient than a traditional drywall skylight shaft, which can lose over half of the potential light. The tubing will fit between rafters and will install easily with no structural modification. At the ceiling level, a diffuser that resembles a recessed light fixture spreads the light evenly throughout the room.

Are Solatube Daylighting Systems maintenance free?

The Solatube Daylighting System is designed to be a sealed unit. All assemblies (dome, flashing, tubing, diffuser) have seals to stop bug and dirt infiltration. The maintenance free design and shape of the dome and flashing eliminates debris build-up. Unlike traditional skylights, there is no open drywall shaft that requires cleaning and re-painting.

What if the light is too bright or bluish?

We offer a suite of Effect Lenses to adjust the light to soften or warm the light color. For those who prefer less light, we offer the Softening Effect Lens that creates a subtle, softer natural lighting effect. The optional Solatube Daylight Dimmer can also be installed to allow control of the light output.

The Warm Effect Lens enhances natural daylight by warming the light creating a color comparable to incandescent bulbs. Never use standard window tinting or any flammable material to block the incoming light. This is an extreme fire hazard.

The Warm Softening Effect Lens is similar to the Warm Effect Lens, but with a softer effect.
