Benefits of Sun Tunnels
Sun tunnels come with numerous benefits, which is exactly the reason many property owners consider getting one or a few for their home. These many benefits include:
Installation of Sun Tunnels
When building a brand new home, you may ask your contractor to incorporate sun tunnels to the house design. However, when you already have an existing home, it is highly recommended you get a licensed expert contractor to install sun tunnels for you. Go ahead and DIY many of the other improvements you want to have in your home, but among those that you shouldn’t handle on your own is sun tunnel installation.
Installing sun tunnels involves placing holes into your roof. Without proper knowledge and application, your existing roof can be badly damaged, and having a new one installed will of course cost a lot of money. Furthermore, professional installation is important to ensure that the sun tunnels are placed correctly so that no water or air can enter your home through its edges. If this happens, larger damage awaits in your home.
There are numerous sun tunnel designs you can choose from. If you have a harder to reach location such as a room right below the attic, a customized sun tunnel with flexible and rigid tubings is necessary so that the sun would reach that room. When done by a professional, even curves and bends won’t stop the sun from reaching the end of the tunnel.
