kaelakeys - Thanks for your question. VELUX offers a lighting kit, so your SUN TUNNEL skylights can also function as a light at night. Follow this link to see a cut-away photo of the light kit installed in a SUN TUNNEL skylight. The light kit can be installed in a flexible or rigid tunnel.

Does the Velux Sun Tunnel increase the temperature in the room where it is instelled? - I have been told by a builder that the sun tunnels increase the temperature in the room where they are installed. We are on the coast of South Carolina and our temperatures can be quite oppressive.

edgecomb - Thanks for your question. All VELUX SUN TUNNEL skylight products are ENERGY STAR® qualified in all 50 states, which means that they meet strict energy efficiency standards set by the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ENERGY STAR® fenestration products must have their U-factor and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient tested and certified by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) in order to qualify.

You may view the SUN TUNNEL skylight testing data here (on the last page of the document):
http://dd1.domwebx.com/inet/techdocs.nsf/A21+Tech+Docs/297AADF69A7C22EE852576D200642424/$FILE/Tested%20Performance%20with%20Shades%20111512.pdf?openelement

The important number to look at is the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC), which measures how much heat from the sun is blocked by the window glazing and is represented as a number between 0 and 1. Our SUN TUNNEL skylights have low SHGC as represented on the testing data sheet linked above. You should have no problem using SUN TUNNEL skylights in South Carolina. In fact, they are very popular in another very hot state, Florida. Our polycarbonate domes offer the most energy efficiency of our SUN TUNNEL skylight models.

Here’s another good resource for understanding energy ratings in windows, doors and skylights: http://www.nfrc.org/windowratings/Energy-ratings.html

We appreciate your question and hope this information helps you make your decision.

Does SkylightsForLess offer flashing to accommodate installation on a ribbed metal roof?
And, can one of your Suntunnels be made to work in a room that has a corrugated metal ceiling? Thank you.

If you watch this video you can see how to install a Sun Tunnel in Metal Roofing. There is no VELUX flashing kit for a metal roof, but with some patient Carpentry, the install can be done!

Bond Girl, we have installed Sun Tunnels in a sloped ceiling in a bathroom before. It can certainly be done. Sometimes access above that space can be challenging but they can also be installed from the room and roof only. This is exactly the type of application Sun Tunnels are a great solution for.

My contractor just installed two Velux Sun tunnels. I'm not particularly fond of the light as it look like a bright fluorescent light shining in my hall when the sun is out; definitely too bright. On a cloudy day, it still looks like a florescent light just slightly diffused. What kind of filters are available and where can I purchase them. I just called Velux and they couldn't help me.

Velux Sun Tunnel Skylight - I am looking for a way to get more natural light in my house. I love to have the sun shine in my house, but my house is not angled correctly to maximize the sunlight. Would the Velux Sun Tunnel Skylight help with this problem? Also, where would I look to find these and have them installed? Thanks for your help.

Houzz recently featured a story on skylights that did not promote tubular skylights. I was shocked how far off they missed the mark by not showing the latest trends in daylighting. The deep chase "square chimneys" of traditional box skylights suck up the heated air in the winter and bring in heat in the summer. Not so with tube skylights; they are heat neutral (no heat gain - no heat loss). My fav spot for my Solatube "tubular" skylight is in my windowless bathroom. Turn on the sun and turn off the electric light during the day....so sustainable:)

Solarise Tube Skylights
@Madeline Reynolds
Solatube does have a higher color rendering index than flex tubing. But solatube has a fluorescent look to it. Alanods Miro silver has no color shift giving your room true to life color and its not a polymeric film so no worries about delamination.

In this close-up of a Velux Sun Tunnel, you can see the clear plastic dome on top of the reflective cylinder that is installed between the roof and the ceiling.
Buckminster Green LLC added this to Want Gorgeous Interior Colors? Look to the Light
Light from a skylight can be harsh, creating a spotlight effect and bringing as much heat into the house as light. Skylights also often require structural alterations to roof framing, and structural changes are never cheap. Instead of a skylight, consider a tubular daylighting device, shown here in cross section. Like Kalwall panels, the device fills a room with diffuse natural light. Though a 5,000- to 6,000-Kelvin bulb will supposedly reproduce natural light, there's nothing like the real thing. Even though the new bulbs out there use a lot less power than those Edison bulbs, there's no beating free light.More:How to Match Color in Photos to Real LifeGet Your Light Right for a Healthy House

Light tunnels or solar tubes are an alternative to skylights. They take up less room and are small enough to include in a walk-in pantry, closet or hallway.Read more about solar tubes

Tubular daylighting devices (TDD) also reduce the number of fixtures you need in a room, thereby saving you electricity and money. 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, you could see economic benefits in a few years, Eco-Structure magazine reports.

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. — Lindsey M. Roberts
