When you think about your “dream home”; what comes to mind? For most people, it is a safe, clean, personalised space where you will be able to raise your family and create memories for years to come. A place that you feel happy to come home to, where you enjoy spending the weekends and that fills you with joy – Marie Kondo-style!

Something that largely contributes to this, although often overlooked, is the access to natural daylight. Artificial light is often glaring which not only can hurt your eyes, but living in an environment filled with non-glare natural light tend to make us less depressed, more social, less anxious, have a better appetite and even sleep better! 

Not to mention the fact that artificial light creates shadow pattering which can confuse the eyes and lead to falls, so by reducing this you naturally enhance the safety of your loved ones which is a priority in any home. 

All these factors add up to a much healthier and happier life, so one could say that quality light and a quality life seem to go hand in hand.

Additionally, having more natural light also reduces electricity costs – which obviously is a positive in any household! 


How will Solatube make a difference in your home?

Quite simply, Solatubes bring the goodness of outside in, transforming dull, dark & gloomy areas into beautiful spaces filled with pure, clean, healthy daylight - the ultimate mood booster all year round. 

It does this by using the best natural daylighting technology worldwide. It all starts on your roof with a patented dome made up of multiple prisms and an innovative in-dome reflector that provides consistent daylighting throughout the day - redirecting low-angle sunlight for maximum light capture (perfect for south facing rooms) whilst rejecting the harsh midday sun.

As that light is captured, it is beamed down into the world’s most reflective tube, cooling the light at the same time. Specially designed lenses then evenly disperse sunlight throughout your chosen room, creating a beautiful, glare-free, naturally lit space.

No UVA or UVB rays can get through either, protecting your furniture and furnishings such as carpet, drapes, clothes and photos – not to mention yourself! And since no heat can come through the tube, this makes Solatube perfect for summer, where it reduces cooling loads on air conditioning units and helps them work more efficiently.

Solatube’s nationwide certified installation consultants will provide a free consultation and quoting service at a time that’s convenient to you to discuss all the different ways a tubular daylighting system can make a real difference in your life.  

A 10-year warranty is provided upon installation – giving you peace of mind that Solatube’s daylighting experts are exactly that.
