What Are Solar Tubes or Tubular Skylights?
Tubular skylights and solar tubes are the exact same thing; natural daylight tubular systems that allow any dark room to be transformed into a bright vivid area. How Does A Solar Tube Work? The sunlight is captured by the dome on your roof, and then travels through a reflective solar tube. It bounces around several times through a pipe which captures sunlight even when the sun is in a low position. They also filter out harmful UV rays from the Sun. What happens if the sun is low or it is cloudy outside? We use the highest quality solar cells that produce electricity with diffused light that is typical on overcast days. Your tubular system will still work even when the sun is at its lowest or the days are extra cloudy. did you know you can lower your electric bill by installing solar tubes.

How Do Solar Tubes Work?
Solar tubes work by allowing the sun’s natural light into your home or building through a tube that gets installed on your roof.
The tube is usually 10-14 inches in diameter and acts like a mirror that channels the sun light along the entire length of the tube while keeping the light’s intensity.
The top of the solar tube (on top of the roof) is capped off by a weather proof clear plastic globe that allows sunlight in, but keeps the wind, rain, heat and cold out.
The bottom of the solar tube (on the ceiling of the room) has a light diffuser installed on it to capture the intensified light from the tube and spread it throughout the room in a dramatic way.
Installing solar tubes are a great way to light up your home with natural light and save money at the same time.

Tubular Skylight Reviews | Solar Tube Reviews
I had an old large odd-sized skylight that needed to be replaced, and decided to contact Insulite Skylights because I knew they are who all local roofers and contractors go to for their skylights. I’m so glad I did– an appointment to measure was set up in no time, and they were able to turn around the fabrication and installation of the skylight in about a week. They were on time and dependable, and even went the extra mile during installation to remedy unexpected problems without extra charge (including explaining everything to me). Gabe and Eric were super knowledgeable, pleasant, and professional. I won’t hesitate to call on them again or recommend them to others.
They REALLY know what they are doing and they made some KILLER RECOMMENDATIONS to us which we’ve been extremely happy about. We trust them. Highly recommended. We’ve purchased 4 skylights from them. 100% happy.
I highly recommend!!! I can’t say enough about how the Elite solar tube lights have changed the feel of my home, it’s no longer a dark cave and has a new welcoming feel with the lights.
