Solatube Daylighting Systems for Your Home

The Smart Alternative to Traditional Skylights

Solatube Daylighting Systems have changed the way people think about residential daylighting by offering a simple, smart alternative to traditional skylights. Only Solatube Daylighting Systems use innovative breakthrough technology to bring natural light into virtually any room in only two hours. Our Brighten Up® Series has transformed millions of homes – without the cost, leaks and hassle associated with traditional skylights.

Are all daylighting systems created equal?

The adage that you only get what you pay for has never been truer than with tubular daylighting systems. It is very easy in today's hectic, fast-paced world, to select the first product that grabs your attention in a 'big box' store or that has the lowest price tag - particularly if it looks like it can save you the money.

Comparing Apples to Plums
It is important to understand that all "tubular skylights" are NOT the same. If you purchase a tubular daylighting system solely because of a low price, you could find that the product you are about to install will deliver only a small fraction of the light that a Solatube® Daylighting System delivers.

While "flexible" systems may be cheaper to buy, you could find out too late that the poor results of that cheaper tubular daylighting system (in areas such as light output and light quality) significantly outweigh the small monetary savings.
