Shedding Light on Sun Tunnel

By / Roofing Extras / Comments Off on Shedding Light on Sun Tunnel

No matter how many lamps, lights or candles you add to a room, there’s simply no substitution for natural lighting. That’s why P.I. Roofing has recently added a very exciting new product to our arsenal- VELUX Sun Tunnel skylights! These tubular skylights are more than just your average window though. Take a look at our three favorite affects they will make on your home and everyday life.

Aesthetic Appeal

If you’re anything like us, this is most likely the first skylight benefit that came to your mind. And that’s justified — Sun Tunnel makes your home look stunning which is a “plus” to you as the current homeowner, but also a “plus” when you decide to put your home on the market. Like any architectural improvements, the addition of a Sun Tunnel will raise the value of your home.

Energy Costs

Thanks to the natural light produced by Sun Tunnel, your light switch will get to take a well-deserved break. In fact, reports show that Sun Tunnel can lower your electricity usage by as much as 10%.


Bacteria, mildew and mold like to grow in damp environments, and unfortunately, your household restroom fits that bill. These organisms in your home are often the cause of chronic respiratory problems and infections. With Sun Tunnel, sunlight can penetrate these otherwise dimly-lit areas, disinfecting them and stunting the growth of potential diseases.

The health benefits don’t stop there. In the same way sunlight fights bacterial diseases, it fights those same diseases in your body. With the production of additional Vitamin D, your body will be stronger to fight illnesses, your mood will be raised, and stress and blood pressure will be lowered.
