How Bright is a Solar Tubular Skylight?

It’s hard to explain how much light a solar tubular skylight produces. Obviously, the amount of light is variable with the amount of sunlight available. The best way to describe it is in pictures. Pictured below is a closed garage with a single solar tubular skylight. The amount of light in the garage is unbelievable!

Solar tubular skylights have lots of applications in residential and commercial settings. The Fafco Solar office and warehouse uses solar tubular skylights exclusively throughout the day. Homeowners can have solar tubular skylights installed in just about any room to brighten a space during the day. Lights come in varying sizes to accommodate different lighting needs, and can be outfitted with dimmers (dampers), nighttime lighting kits, and exhaust fans.
