Sun Tunnels: Good For You!

Kathleen Finn

Sun tunnels and skylights do wonders for your home environment. That’s a given. Opening up dark nooks and exposing otherwise ignored spaces is good design. Yet, did you know that suntunnels and skylights are also good for your health? For us northern latitude dwellers, light is in short supply at this time of year and for the remainder of winter -- and that shortage of sunlight can wreak havoc with your brain chemistry. Too little light throws your biological clock out of order, which reduces levels of serotonin (a mood-regulating brain chemical) and melatonin (a sleep and mood-regulating hormone). This can lead to depression, fatigue and lethargy -- and too much time in front of Netflix.

So, give your brain a break and let in some light. It will do you good! You will reap benefits even on overcast days, since the brain responds to natural light, not just bright sunshine (although that’s a bonus!)

Call us for a consultation on how to best incorporate some ‘sky’ into your home.

What Is a Sun Tunnel?

Kathleen Finn

A sun tunnel is a member of the skylight family but is not quite a window. A tubular skylight, goes where skylights cannot - where the distance between the roof and ceiling is too small or too great for a rigid tunnel. This flexible tunnel can wend its way through oddly configured or awkward spaces to bring light into hallways, closets, laundry rooms and entryways. Affix a light fixture to the bottom of the sun tunnel and you have a free source of lighting.

Seattle Skylights Gets a New Look

Kathleen Finn

Seattle Skylights, a division of Metropolitan Roofing, now has a snazzy new look. Watch for our vans and trucks buzzing around your neighborhood. We incorporated skylights into our business several years ago as it made sense to combine a beautiful and useful architectural embellishment in our portfolio of roofing services.

Transform your kitchen, bedroom, or bathroom with a skylight or bring light to forgotten corners of your house - hallways, bonus rooms, laundry rooms and closets with sun tunnels. Take a look at our Houzz account for ideas on how to let in the light.

Contact us, and we will come by and provide a free estimate for your skylight project.
