sun tubes
Has anyone out there installed sun tubes ? we live in a bungalow and would like to install two, one in our hall and one in the passage that runs through the middle of the house. From reading what it says on various websites it sounds as though they can be installed without too much difficulty but I would like to know from someone with first hand experience how difficult it actually was and also whether or not they are as effective as the brochures claim.

Any advice appreciated

I installed a 14" suntube in an upstairs bedroom
Lots of light & not that difficult to install (for me)

They provided exponentially more light into the customers homes than I coiuld have ever possibly imagined and were very easy to install, both on the roof and the attachment to the interior ceiling.

This helps me decide what to do with the hole from moving the furnace......
The new hallway could use some added, free lighting!

easier to do on new construction, but reno installs are easy enough, too.
very effective for supplying some natural light.
