Skylights have come a long way in the last decades. A traditional skylight is basically a window in the roof. Unfortunately they have limitations; they require structural reframing and can only be placed where there is no attic or crawl space between the roof and the ceiling. They are vulnerable to leaks and are difficult to clean if they become dirty… and they do! There is another way to get natural light into those dark places in your home without any of these disadvantages: the solar tube!
The finest solar tubes, also known as tubular skylights on the market are made by Solatube and The Solar Guys is the premier authorized dealer for Solatube in the central Florida area. Solatube offers products that are simply the best from the roof mounting which has been shown to hold up better and not cause long term roof damage (unlike some other brands) to a fine selection of options so you can have a solar tube that fits your need exactly!
Tubular skylights, work by capturing sunlight on the roof and reflecting it down a tube into a fixture in the ceiling. The inside fixture can be flush with the ceiling, or you can select one of the stylish options that look more like traditional light fixtures. Additional accessories include a ventilation kit, and a daylight dimmer to soften of shut out the light completely.
There are a couple options to allow the skylights to continue to serve as a light source after sunset. The first is a light add-on kit which uses a regular florescent bulb which can be switched on at night. The second option is the Solatube Smart LED System featuring SunSense Technology to keep the room evenly lit as daylight fades and into the night. It monitors the daylight levels of light and activates the LED system as needed. This system can be further improved upon by adding the Occupancy Sensor which only triggers the LED lights when someone is in the room. No more paying for electricity to light up empty rooms! LED lights are one of the most efficient and long lasting lights available today.
