What exactly is a sun tunnel?
This type of skylight differs from a more traditional skylight in both its look and functionality. A sun tunnel is designed as a cylinder-shaped tunnel that stretches from the outside of your roof to the top of your ceiling. Daylight is captured in the highly reflection tunnel and transmitted as diffused light in your space.
What should I pick, sun tunnel or a traditional skylight?
We do love options! What's important is that both a VELUX Sun Tunnel and a VELUX Skylight provide your home with bright, natural light. But there are differences. A traditional skylight is great if you're wanting a window to the outside world, as its clear glass pane opens to sky views. Sun tunnels are a great option if you're looking to bring in natural light to smaller areas that may have limited ceiling space.
Can I change the look of my sun tunnel?
Yes, we offer decorative diffusers to change the look and type of light diffusion for your sun tunnel. Check them out here!
My hallway gets really dark at night and during cloudy days, can my sun tunnel help fix that?
Yes! Pair your VELUX Sun Tunnel with the VELUX Solar Night Light (coming soon) to give your space a soft, diffused glow when natural light isn't available.
