Essential Info

For about the cost of a nice light fixture, bring the soft light of the sun into virtually any space in your home. Installed on any roof surface in under two hours, you will quickly realize the cost benefits of a tubular skylight over incandescent and even traditional skylights. In addition to the free daytime operating cost, Natural Light tubular skylights do not contribute to heat loss or gain, unlike standard framed-in skylights.

How the Tubular Skylight Works:
  1. Sunlight Enters the Dome - The low-profile, durable acrylic, impact resistant dome captures sunlight on your roof, from sunup to sundown. The flashing housing ensures that the unit is weather-tight and leakproof.
  2. Sunlight is Reflected Through Light Pipe - Sunlight captured by the dome bounces through a patented 98% reflective, mirror-like tube. The light pipe reflects sunlight into your home, even in early morning or late afternoon.
  3. Ceiling Fixture Softly Diffuses Sunlight into Your Home - The slightly arced prismatic surface of the light fixture evenly disperses sunlight into your home - no hot spots. Harmful UV rays are filtered out and fading on clothing, furniture and carpets is eliminated.

Natural Light Tubular Skylights can be installed in about 2 hours or less. Installation requires no painting, no wiring or structural changes. If you are a handy do-it-yourself homeowner, you can easily do the job! Installation requires basic DIY skills including using a reciprocating saw to cut a hole in your roof and a drywall saw to cut a hole in your ceiling. Natural Light Tubular Skylights were designed to be air-tight and leak proof. The most crucial part of the installation is attaching and sealing the flashing on the roof to ensure a weather-tight seal.

  • More Info

    Tubular Skylights Emit More Light
    Tubular skylights emit more light than traditional skylights. Tubular skylights operate by bouncing captured sunlight through a highly reflective, mirror-like light pipe. Traditional skylights do not reflect or bounce the incoming sunlight and are inefficient when the sun's angle is low. Natural Light uses one of the best performing light pipes in the industry. Tests show that our light pipes capture sunlight, even when the sun's angle is low.

    Tubular Skylights Diffuse Incoming Light - No Hot Spots
    Tubular skylights scatter 100% of the natural light spectrum through the use of a diffuser, thereby eliminating the spot light effect common with a traditional skylight system. The "hot spot" light of traditional skylights is extremely harsh and very unpleasant unlike the light from a Natural Light Tubular Skylight that is soft and evenly dispersed.

    Tubular Skylight Eliminate Harmful UV Rays
    99% of harmful UV rays are absorbed by both the specially designed dome and by the light pipe of tubular skylights, thereby eliminating the bleaching effect on rugs and furniture. Most traditional skylights do not block out these harmful UV rays.

    JOHN -- austin, TX   2/24/2011
    This skylight is great. The living room that it was installed in was always so dark - not anymore. It looks sort of like a light fixture on the ceiling - but no energy cost! I took my time installing it - around 6 hours. I could have done it quicker, but I like to do things perfectly, not to mention this was my first time. The skylight seems to be very well designed, and the dome is thicker than I thought it would be. I was concerned that it might not hold up to the hail storms that we get here in Central Texas - but it seems to be very strong. Smarthome's price was excellent, with almost free shipping to boot. Shipping was fast, and customer service was very helpful with some questions that I had before ordering. I'll be doing business with Smarthome again.
