VELUX SUN TUNNEL skylight

VELUX, the world leader in skylights and roof windows, introduces its latest daylighting breakthrough. Utilizing the same proven design of the standard VELUX SUN TUNNEL skylight, we improved the energy efficiency to meet even the strictest of energy requirements.

The VELUX SUN TUNNEL skylight SE series provides consumers not only a 30% federal tax credit, but also the peace of mind that comes with using a VELUX product.

Energy performance standards were rewritten with the introduction of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Responding to this challenge, VELUX has developed a Super Energy Efficient SUN TUNNEL product to meet the energy codes of .30/.30 U-factor/SHGC.

What is the green paint color on the walls?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The difference in this bathroom between no TDD, with electric lights from sconces turned on, and a TDD, electric lights turned off, is eye opening. And the more you keep your lights off, the more you save in electric costs.
Our before photos were even darker than this TDD company's promotional photo. In the bathroom a need for privacy makes no windows almost a benefit, but in other rooms a lack of windows gives a feeling of being shut in, even when the TDDs bring bright and sufficient light.

sola tube difference! Had 3 Solatubes, dealer installed, about 10 years ago, in windowless guest bathroom, laundry room, and kitchen. Never a single leak problem. During the full moon time, every month, it's like daylight, all night long. Another option is the combo light/solatube. A bit more expensive, but saves not needing a seperate light fixture in a small room. NOTE : Solatubes are more for ranch-style homes with attic access. The longer the tube, the more expensive the install. Location of shade-type trees has an impact on Solatube placement.

Solatube International, which manufactures TDDs, also says that the tubes are time and cost efficient: A professional can install one in two hours, and they cost less than installing new windows or traditional skylights. Payback varies, but for an average cost of $500,

Install Tubular Daylighting Devices (TDDs) or Skylights The very first thing we did was have tubular daylighting devices installed. These are sort of like mini skylights. To quote Lindsey M. Roberts from her ideabook specifically on the subject, TDDs "are reflective cylinders or pipes installed between the roof and ceiling, with a clear plastic dome. The bottoms of the tubes are diffused or glazed to prevent glaring beams of light and to ensure a soft glow." We had three installed: one in the living room, another in the kitchen and a third in our entry. They worked beautifully, and to say the difference was like night and day for those rooms isn't just a figure of speech. We used Solatubes and were very pleased with the quality and performance.
