Brownstone Solar Tube

We just installed a solar tube for a client in a Brooklyn brownstone. Brownstones tend to be dark. So we are big fans of solar tubes. As a solar tube installer there is nothing more satisfying than installing one in a Brooklyn brownstone. The results are so drastic.

We passed this particular solar tube through the floor above and to the roof so it was about 12 feet long.

The pictures below show the tube with an overcast day but the light coming through was blazing. You save so much on electricity. And the light is much nicer since it is sunlight.

Very cool.

    No this wasn’t solatube. It was cheaper but works just as well. Can’t remember right now the name.

    Hi Gennaro,

    This looks great! Is this a Solatube Daylighting System? We had three installed in our old office and they were amazing…we rarely had to turn on electric lights and the color rendition is definitely more attractive.

    Good luck with all of your green projects in Brooklyn.
