Brighten Up Your Dark Home

Discover how Solatube tubular skylights can deliver natural light into every room

Are you, like many Arizonans, wanting to brighten up your dark home with natural light? In Arizona, many older homes were built with fewer windows to mitigate the intense heat, resulting in dim and sometimes oppressive interiors. While effective for temperature control, this architectural approach often leaves residents craving natural light and a connection to the outdoors

Why Solatube?

Solatube tubular skylights offer a modern solution to a common dilemma: bringing natural light into your home without compromising insulation or increasing heat transfer. Highly effective and simple to install, Solatube skylights harness sunlight from the roof and direct it into interior spaces.

You may wonder how a Solatube tubular skylight prevents the unwanted heat often associated with skylights. Let’s break it down: Solatube skylights are equipped with Spectralight® Infinity Tubing, which allows in the visible spectrum of light while effectively blocking out infrared wavelengths over 900 nm, notorious for causing solar heat gain.

But that’s not all. Our skylights also feature Raybender® 3000 Technology, designed to manage intense sunlight by deflecting excessive light and heat. With these advanced technologies working together, Solatube ensures maximum light output with minimal thermal impact, keeping your home comfortable and bright all year round.

With Solatube, filling your home with daylight can be one of the fastest and easiest home improvement projects. Interested in learning more? Continue reading to explore five areas of your home that could benefit from adding a Solatube tubular skylight in your Arizona home.

1. Kitchen:

The kitchen is often the heart of the home, where families gather, and memories are made. Adding a Solatube tubular skylight to your kitchen can transform the space, making it feel more inviting and spacious. Did you know that natural light enhances the colors of your countertops and cabinetry, creating a bright and welcoming atmosphere?

Check out the transformation of this kitchen. Just two tubular skylights not only brightened up the space but made the kitchen feel larger while highlighting its different features.

2. Bathroom:

Bring the spa experience into your own home by adding a Solatube to your bathroom. Natural light creates a relaxing ambiance, making your morning routine feel like a luxurious retreat. Say goodbye to dimly lit bathrooms and hello to a brighter, more refreshing space. Solatube tubular skylights also allow you to enjoy the sunshine without sacrificing your privacy.

A windowless bathroom doesn’t only lack natural light, but it restricts airflow—leaving the space feeling hot and stuffy. This, plus the added moisture from the shower, can lead to a buildup of harmful substances like mold. To save you and your home from possible issues down the road, the Solatube Ventilation Add-On Kit combines daylighting and ventilation into one attractive fixture, leaving your rooms humidity-free and your ceiling looking orderly and uncluttered.

3. Hallway:

Dark hallways can make your home feel closed off and unwelcoming. Brighten up your hallway with a Solatube tubular skylight and instantly make your home feel more spacious and inviting. Natural light flowing through your hallway creates a seamless transition between rooms, making your home feel more connected. Plus, Solatubes are designed to fit seamlessly into any space, so you can add one to even the narrowest of hallways.

4. Garage:

Transform your garage from a dark, dreary space into a functional workshop or hobby area with the addition of a Solatube tubular skylight. Natural light makes seeing and working on projects easier, improving productivity and enhancing safety. Plus, with their energy-efficient design, you can enjoy a well-lit garage without worrying about the Arizona heat streaming in.

5. Entryway:

Make a grand entrance with a Solatube tubular skylight in your entryway. Natural light streaming in creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere, making guests feel right at home from the moment they walk through the door.

 

Installing a Solatube Tubular Skylight

Whether your home is small or large, installing a Solatube tubular skylight requires minimal work and no structural modifications. Here’s how:

  1. A circular hole is cut into the roof to accommodate the tubular skylight.
  2. A Solatube flashing is placed around the roof opening, tailored to your specific roof type to ensure a leak-proof system.
  3. The reflective tubing, which serves as the ductwork for sunlight, is assembled from the roof to the interior ceiling. Its innovative design helps bypass any plumbing, electrical wiring or other attic obstructions.
  4. A diffuser or decorative fixture on the ceiling is installed to disperse natural light into the room evenly.
