The reasons to invest in tubular skylights are obvious, especially for homeowners. These lights have been proven to provide sunlight and vitamin D, a valuable resource for children. Increased sunlight has been linked to improved test scores for children of all ages.
Not only will skylights bring natural light inside, they will help you save on electric bills for the long term. Homeowners often experience saving between 15-40% off energy bills. Skylights also provide UV protection against fading clothes, furniture and rugs.
How Much Do Tubular Skylights Cost?
On average, tubular skylights will cost $450+ in the U.S. in 2021. Vented skylights, meanwhile, will cost upwards of $750, according to Thumbtack.
Tubular skylights are typically 10 to 14-inch diameter tubes that are installed directly into a roof. Then, the lights are covered with glass or even plexiglass which lets natural light into your home. These skylights have the exact same illuminating effect of a few 100-watt light bulbs. They are capable of lighting a 200-square-foot room.
To soften any glare, these tubes will have a diffuser in one end. However, because you’ll have a tube stuck in your roof, there will not be a view provided, unlike fixed or vented skylights. Fixed skylights vary widely in price, costing anywhere from $150-$1,000. A fixed double-domed skylight starts at $450+.

Here are just a few of the benefits associated with installing tubular skylights:
- Save money on electricity.
- Natural source of daylight without any added heat or glare.

- Won’t fade furniture or clothing.

- Leak and damage proof design.

- Preferred upgrade for realtors – will add to your home’s value.
Skylight Life Expectancy
On average, skylights will last anywhere from 8-15 years, according to Plasteco. Depending on overall quality of the skylight and installation, the lifespan can either decrease or increase.
Here are two of the best ways to maximize the life expectancy of your skylights:
Perform Maintenance When Necessary
A tubular skylight will require some maintenance needs throughout its life. While it is not necessary to clean the light daily or even weekly, it’s important to watch out for any signs of damage over the years. Maintenance will generally involve cleaning the light on both sides. Perform tasks to avoid any potential cracks or leaks from the skylight, as well. In most cases, it is the lack of maintenance upkeep that ends up shortening a skylight’s lifespan. Call the professionals for any maintenance needs!
Position The Skylight Properly
A skylight should ideally produce/allow a sufficient amount of sunlight through the transparent panes. Placing the skylight in the best spot possible in your home will enhance interior illumination and improve the aesthetics of the area, of course. When installing the skylight, put it in a spot to maximize the light reception. If you wish for the highest light intensity possible, then position the light to the south. A north-facing position will offer more of a softer light in the home.
