It'll fit the roof pitch but you'll have to buy an extension tube that will withstand the pressure of the soil, especially when wet. I absolutely love the 2 that I put in my kitchen. It's like daylight in there.

Can I buy just the part that fits on the ceiling inside the house?

Three to four feet is plenty to flood the area with light.

will this work on a metal roof?

Yes but you'll need a good quality rubberized or silicone sealer underneath the mounting plate before you screw it down to the roof with rubber washer screws.

We live in a manufactured home, will this work?

Asked by Ron October 8, 2019

Answers

This will work in any environment as long as your rafters/trusses are at least 16 inches apart because the tube has to fit between them.

Is the light diffuser ring that goes on the inside of the ceiling 16 1/2” in diameter and is it available to purchase?

Asked by RHT August 19, 2019
1
Answer

Our 14 inch model sun tunnel diffuser lenses are approximately 14 inches in diameter. If you are speaking of the white trim ring that fits on the interior of our previous generation sun tunnels, that item is approximately 16 1/2 inches. The part number is #30331114 and will be a special order item for your local Home Depot Millworks associate. Please check with them for pricing and lead times.

What is the difference between this one, and the 14 inch impact dome sun tunnel?

Asked by MShell2 July 18, 2019
1
Answer

The Sun Tunnel kit itself is the same, the only difference is the dome itself. The TMF 014 0000 has an acrylic dome and the TMF 014 1000 has a polycarbonate dome. The polycarbonate dome is usually required in coastal areas and recommended in hail prone regions.

Answer

Hi Byrdman. You will be able to use the 14 inch flexible or rigid tubing sun tunnel model in this area. As you noticed in our instructions, the rough opening has 14 1/2 inch width in that oval style cut. That will give you the clearance you need for a proper installation. If you have additional questions about this installation, please be sure to contact VELUX directly.

Can you install more than 1 interior room with a Y using the same roof dome?

I'm sure it would be possible but I don't know if they even make a Y for these units.

Fantastic
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.

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.
by Horatiotdh
Ugly and cheap looking
Be aware this is a PLASTIC light that looks like a cheap, cheap fluorescent light. The light is cold and harsh - like a dystopian science lab. It has a blue hue and removes every hint of warmth from the room. It is NOTHING like natural sunlight from a skylight. It is so hideous that I’m sick to my stomach. I simply cannot keep this horrible thing in my house.

Response from VELUXCustomerServiceTeamSep 2, 2020
We are sorry to hear that you are unhappy with your VELUX Sun Tunnel. Sun Tunnels with the rigid tubing were shipped with a blue protective film not long ago. We recommend that you or your installer check inside the tunnel to be sure that the protective film is removed. If this has been removed, consider adding the Neutral Light diffuser to give the reflected light a more natural light appearance.

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

Let there be light and there was!
My house was so dark in the living area and due to the pitch of my roof, I wasn't able to have skylights. Sun Tunnels were the only option if I wanted more light. They are awesome! My friend even turned back the other day to remind me to turn out the lights then realized I didn't have any lights on. It was the Sun Tunnel.

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?
by Bill
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.
by Schmoo
Love the light, hate the bugs.
Had mine professionally installed by a contractor last year as part of a remodel. Put it in the utility room with no natural light. What a difference! Love how much light it lets in even after sundown. Unfortunately, within a couple of months there were a least a couple dozen dead, squarish bugs about 1/2" long in it. The contractor came back and cleaned them out and checked the installation and said everything was tight. But the bugs just keep accumulating. When I try to twist the trim ring to take it off to clean them out, it won't budge. Afraid I will break it. This sucks because I love the light but the bugs look terrible and are unavoidable when you look at it. So again, based on the performance, this tube is great. But the bugs really bring down the satisfaction. Not being able to easily clean it just compounds the issue.

Response from Customer ServiceJan 31, 2019
Having bugs on the diffuser lens can be disconcerting. These little bugs can get through the tiniest of openings to get towards the light. Please ensure that all screw heads, holes or tubing seams are covered with aluminum tape to prevent other insects from getting into the tubing. Please email us @ vcustomer.service@velux.com for instructions on how to remove the trim ring and diffuser to clean that area of that debris.
