This month, I'd like to talk about how you can tackle a relatively easy do-it-yourself project to let more passive-solar natural light into your home's darkest spots and save on some of your energy bills. Who wouldn't love that!

Add More Natural Light to Your Home

Are you a homeowner with a dark area in your home that can benefit from natural light? An easy-to-install Sun Tunnel Skylight could be the answer for bringing light into a hallway, laundry room, closet, or a bathroom -- places where conventional skylights are not an option.

For a handy do-it-yourselfer, the Sun Tunnel Skylight is an ideal project which can be completed in 2 to 3 hours. But for those who are a little wary of undertaking a DIY project, a reasonably priced professional installation can be arranged. Either way, some of the darkest areas in a home can become filled with passive, natural light while increasing energy efficiency.

VELUX Sun Tunnel Skylights bring passive, white natural light into a home compared to conventional incandescent bulbs that can create an unnatural yellow glow. Natural sunlight uses the entire spectrum that enables a room to become vibrant and alive in the colours that you intend. Seeing true colors can be helpful in a simple chore such as folding laundry to a more complex task of painting or redecorating a room.

Here's the scoop on these ingenious skylights:

  • Featuring an industry-first adjustable pitch adapter, light is captured efficiently through a clear, weatherproof dome on the roof.
  • The light travels into your home through highly reflective tubing, ending at a diffuser which has a paint-able matte finish.
  • Depending on your installation needs between the roof and ceiling, a choice of highly reflective rigid tubing is available for straight runs or flexible tubing to easily bypass any attic obstructions.
  • Sun Tunnel Skylights are available in a variety of models in 10”, 14” and 21” diameters to fit different truss spaces and lighting needs.
