What Is a Tubular Skylight?

Mar 12, 2020

Tubular SkylightA tubular skylight brings natural light into an interior room of a home. Without exterior walls that have windows to flood it with sunlight, an interior room relies on artificial lighting to keep it illuminated. Tubular skylights are composed of a dome, a tube, and a diffuser. The dome is used to capture the sun’s rays. This light is transferred down through the tube and into the diffuser, which disperses the natural light into the room. Tubular skylights don’t need a direct line of sight to deliver light—they can be configured to deliver daylight to wherever it is needed in a home. The obvious benefit of tubular skylights is being able to enjoy natural light in any room in your home. Additionally, tubular skylights can help you save on energy costs since you won’t have to rely on traditional lighting sources as often as you once did.
