When you install solar tubes, you are granted natural light like that of skylights, but with less frustration and cost. If you have thought about increasing the amount of daylight to say, a dark hallway or kitchen, solar tubing is a great option. Solar tubes offer an abundance of indirect, warm light, and at just a small percentage of the costs of getting a traditional skylight installed.
How Much Do Tubular Skylights Cost?
Tubular skylights cost anywhere between $500 – $1,000 on average when they are installed professionally, while a traditional skylight averages around $2,000 or more. If you are confident and are not afraid of roof work, you might be able to install tubular skylights by yourself with a kit for around $200 – $400. Tubular skylights don’t need more drywall to be installed, unlike a skylight. You also don’t have to modify framing or paint. *These are general estimates, not an actual quote.

How Much Light Do Solar Tubes Produce?
The smallest option available is a 10-inch solar tube, which gives off the equivalent of 3 100-watt bulbs, or enough for a 150 to 200 sq. ft. room. A 14-inch solar tube can increases the brightness of a room up to 300 sq. ft.
Where Can Solar Tubes Be Installed in A Home?
You can install solar tubes in many locations, some typical areas people like constant indirect light include:
• Laundry Rooms
• Walk-in Closets
Just about the only place, you don’t want to place a light tube is directly above a screen, such as a TV or a computer, as this can create irritating glare.
Are Solar Tubes Right For Your House?
Solar tubes can also help you lower your electric bill. Also, due to installation not needing alternations to a frame, there are a lot less limitations when it comes to locating a solar tube for your needs. Examine your attic space to make sure there is enough room to run a light tube and should be straight. If something is in the way, such as tubing, this can be avoided and/or moved. Installing solar tubes are really simple when done with vaulted ceilings, as only about a foot of tubing will be needed. Read the pros and cons of solar tubes to decide if they are right for you.
