Let’s assume that, given the floor plan of your home, it would be possible to install a window in the hallway. Traditional skylights are an option but an unequivocally expensive one, as they require significant structural changes and remodeling work. An option that works for virtually any hallway is the Solatube Daylighting System. The brighter alternative to traditional skylights, the Solatube system operates in a cleverly effective way. After capturing sunlight on the roof, the Solatube device channels it down through the home in a tube made of highly reflective material that delivers 99.7% of the sun’s visible light. Best of all, tubular daylighting devices from Solatube International, Inc., install with minimal hassle. No changes need to be made to the framing, and no ceiling or wall repairs are necessary indoors. A conventional skylight usually takes days to install; Solatube takes only a couple of hours.
