Questions & Answers


Can they be installed on a vaulted ceiling?

Asked by Sandi February 20, 2021

VELUX rigid sun tunnel can be installed in a vaulted ceiling, but it would be best if there was a crawl space present. For short distances between roofline and interior ceiling, consider the flexible tubing models for an easier install.

Is this style available in 14"?

Asked by Stacy June 17, 2020

There is a similar product with low profile flashing that can be found via this link: https://www.homedepot.com/p/306352335 and it is eligible for a 26% Federal Tax Credit too.

I live in a hurricaine pron area. Which is more secure the low profile or regular top.

Asked by Lannie August 21, 2019

For hurricane prone areas, you can choose either design. You may want to check your local building code to see if the impact rated dome is required. The acrylic dome version will have 0000 at the end of the model number and the impact (polycarbonate) dome series will have 1000. Example TSR 010 1000 will be the impact rated sun tunnel.

Asked by Gary August 17, 2019

Hi Gary. If your sun tunnel has a white trim ring around the diffuser lens, you can use part # ZTK 010B which is essentially a blackout shade for a sun tunnel. You can special order this item from Home Depot and it should be approximately $31.00. If your sun tunnel has a clear edge extended from the diffuser, this system will not work. You are welcome to contact VELUX directly for the details.

Can this be installed on a flat roof?

Asked by Richards August 13, 2019

This model is meant for a sloped roof application only. You can choose the TCR 014 model and it will work on a flat roof application. Here is a link to that item: https://www.homedepot.com/p/205614065 This style will only come in a 14 inch diameter.

Do roofing companies install these?

Asked by Marilyn January 24, 2019

Idon't know hwat roofing companies do. I do home remodeling and repairs and I have installed several of these.


Asked by DRAGONLADY January 7, 2019

The only insect problem I've had is they get inside the tube (somehow) and fall onto the lens when they die. You have to unscrew the trim ring and carefully remove the 10" glass lens to remove them. This remove/replace is a bother, especially if you have more than one.

I have a metal roof. Can I install this unit?

Asked by Steve November 25, 2018

Yes. If the ribs are at least 12” apart to accommodate flashing

Asked by Fireconscious November 16, 2018

The agency that evaluates roof materials for "high fire hazard zone" construction will have the final say. I've installed two and don't recall any mention of fire limits in their extensive safety warnings. You might also ask the Velux people. The flashing and mounting ring are sheet steel. The lens is hard plastic, and there is a hard rubber gasket between the lens assembly and the tube ring (photo). The tubes are aluminum.

I specified a solar tube style skylight to be added to my main bathroom which has no natural light (no window) and was always dark until a light was turned on. This 10" Velux is amazingly bright on sunny days and does well on overcast days. This photo is from an overcast day and still lights the room. It also does not collect moisture when showering but I do have an exhaust fan with light but the mirror will fog even with the fan on.

Rechargeable batteries not Impressive
We had two rigid Velux sun tunnels installed in February. The interior work took a couple more months and the batteries were installed in one sun tunnel in May and the second sun tunnel in late October. The sun tunnels provided great light during the evening but the batteries in both sun tunnels failed by mid November. Very unsatisfied with this. The ceiling is 14’ high and having to change out with new batteries so soon is not what we expected.

14 tunnels in! And a question...
Ok, I have gone sun tunnel crazy! Have an unusually large single floor house and have put in 14 sun tunnels with 6 or 7 to go. Am in love with the light! One thing is driving me crazy...it is extremely difficult to get the clear ceiling covers off before install, then back n after install. I see that there a seal and it seems to make the covers impossible to get on. Any tips or tricks? I'm killing my grip and am on high ladders for some (not great footing). When unboxing I've figured out that I need to break the seal all around by gently pulling cover away from ring before trying to remove. Any tips to help would be appreciated...have so many to get up and on. Once this is done I'll be good to go and an extremely happy customer!

Sun Tunnel Skylight are Great
We had Three 10 inch VELUX Sun Tunnel Skylight installed on Monday 10/19/20, one in the kitchen, two in the living room. They have truly added light to the rooms which was a great improvement for the area.

Nice product, poor packaging
Ordered two of these unitsa couple months ago, have been sitting in the garage waiting for the weather to improve before cutting into the roof. Just recently opened the boxes only to find that both had been damaged in transit to Home Depot. The boxes are both intact, however, the lenses are not secured in the box. One has a scratched up roof lense from slapping around in the box against the flashing (wrapped in thin plastic bag, no padding), the other made a large dent in the two foot tube section and may not be usable. The product itself seems like a nice unit, but someone really dropped the ball in packaging.

I can see the light
I was in the dark until I had two sun tunnels installed last week.

Love the light
My hallway is like a cave, buried in the center of the house. My friend has a similar floor plan but has two solar tubes they are so effective I constantly was trying to turn off the lights when I exited the hall. Now I have the same experience but have learned not to try to turn off the lights when exiting. Now after 12 years of having a cave I have bright light in it. Also got the solar powered LED night light feature. Previously when having company had to suggest the leave lights on so they could see at night, now the hall looks like moon light. Very pleased.

Happy to have more natural light.
We had three sun tunnels installed by a five star installer. Cost of the project was just shy of $5000. Wish I would have investigated a bit more before proceeding. The trim rings allow you to see the four mounting screws. Called customer service and they said someting about white tape to cover the screws. The highest unit is about 15 feet in the air and has about 9 dead bugs in it. Thought these would have been sealed better. I have not removed them yet because now I need to buy a 12 foot step ladder to service this unit. We had a electric light install in another and it is a florescent buld with an odd base connector. The contractor removed an existing can light and tossed the fixture into the attic while using it as a junction box. Not sure I would call that upto code or expected of a five star installer. The trim rings are also difficult to remove as there is not much to grip onto to rotate the ring off.

Wonderful Passive Light Source
TSR 10” Sun Tunnel installed 2 years ago. Amazing. Always think lights switch left on. BUT time to get dead bugs out. Got Trim Ring off. No clue of how to get diffuser removed. Ideas?

Add the Solar night lite.
Lots of light. Have one in my hallway and one in my dining room, where I have limited light. Also added the solar night which adds another dimension.
