Tubular Skylights for Home and Commercial Installation
Tubular skylights are the latest way to save energy costs, bring light to otherwise dark spaces, and beautify your home or business using the clean rays of the Florida sun. Also known as solar tubes or light tubes, tubular skylights capture sunlight from your roof and direct it through a reflective tube which leads to the ceiling of your interior space where it is diffused throughout the room.
Wayne’s Solar has chosen to carry and install the Natural Light Energy Systems brand of solar tube after great success and customer satisfaction with Natural Light solar attic fans. Natural Light provides a 25 year warranty and its solar light tubes can be installed easily with little or no modification to the structure. Energy star rated tubular skylights come in the following sizes for residential use:
10-inch tubular skylight illuminates 150 square feet – perfect for closets, hallways, laundry rooms, or second bathrooms and equal to 300 watts of electricity.
13-inch tubular skylight provides illumination for up to 300 square feet – ideal for kitchens, bedrooms, or master bathrooms and equal to 500 watts of electricity.
18-inch tubular skylights illuminates up to 500 square feet – designated for commercial use as well and good for any space built at 24-inch on center construction and equal to 1000 watts of electricity.
Additional commercial applications for tubular skylights are 21 inches in size and illuminate up to 700 square feet of space with the equivalency of 1,450 watts of electricity.
Businesses who want to put this remarkable energy saving product to work for them can choose the warehouse model or the drop ceiling version which easily fits into any standard drop ceiling system.
The utilization of solar light tubes, “daylighting” a room, can lower your energy bill by reducing your dependency on electricity as well as lowering the amount of heat that is generated by traditional light sources.
Considering that as much as 40 percent of your utility bill may be the result of artificial lighting, the smart choice is yet again the solar choice.
