Skylights vs. Sun Tunnels: What’s the Difference?

Before deciding between a sun tunnel or skylight, you should understand the differences between the two. A skylight is a window that mounts directly on the roof to bring in natural light and ventilation to areas that need it. It may be deck-mounted or curb-mounted, and can also be vented to release hot air and humidity from kitchens and bathrooms.

A sun tunnel is a tubular skylight which extends from the roof through the ceiling to deliver natural daylight into any area of the home. It can be used in dark areas that normally cannot utilize standard windows or skylights, such as closets, hallways and bathrooms. The sun tunnel is an economical approach to bringing the benefits of natural light to the darkest room.
