Add More Light To Your Home Today!
There are several advantages to installing a tubular skylight versus a traditional skylight in your home or office. No matter how big your room, we have different sizes to fit your needs. Contact us today if you have any additional questions and/or concerns.
GoGreen Daylight Systems skylights can be installed virtually on any roof type and slope. Our residential models are available with either a flat roof or a pitched roof flashing. The unique slope of the pitched roof flashing allows for easy installation on all roof pitches without the need for angle adapters in most cases. Our models accommodate all roofing material including composite shingles, wood shakes, tile and clay tiles. For some tile roof installations, a flashing skirt or turret extension may be needed.
GoGreen Daylight Systems tubular skylights are perfect for any dark room in your home including the garage. We also have a full line of commercial units available for office buildings and warehouse applications.
The light pipe of GoGreen Daylight Systems skylights has super-reflective, mirror-like surface that has a reflectivity rate of 98%. Our models reflect light even when the sun’s angle is low in the early morning or late afternoon. Our tubular skylights output the equivalent of 300 – 1,450 watts of of incandescent light depending on the model size:
- 10″ tubular skylight = up to 150 sq. ft. (equivalent of up to 300 watts)
- 13″ tubular skylight = up to 300 sq. ft. (equivalent of up to 500 watts)
- 18″ tubular skylight = up to 500 sq. ft. (equivalent of up to 1,000)
- 21″ tubular skylight = up to 700 sq. ft. (equivalent of up to 1,450)
Yes, all available light will be collected and reflected by your tubular skylight.
Each GoGreen Daylight Systems Skylight kit comes with everything you need to install a 4 foot long installation including:
- High impact Acrylic Dome
- Pitched or Flat Roof Flashing (curb mount for commercial units)
- 4 Feet of Light Pipe

GoGreen Daylight Systems recommends short straight runs to get the maximum light output. But if straight runs are not possible, angle adapters (elbows) are available in 12″ sections. Below is the maximum length of light pipe recommended for each model:
- 10″ model = 18 feet of light pipe
- 13″ model = 20 feet of light pipe
- 18″ model = 20 feet of light pipe
- 21″ model = 20 feet of light pipe
GoGreen Daylight Systems tubular skylights require no maintenance! Once properly installed, the unit is sealed from weather, dust, moisture and bugs.
The rugged construction of GoGreen Daylight Systems tubular Skylights can withstand the harshest weather conditions including hurricanes and tornadoes. Only the dome and flashing are exposed on your roof. The dome is made of thick, heavy-duty acrylic that can withstand the impact of flying debris and the flashing is manufactured using commercial pure grade seamless aluminum and will not leak. Our units have been tested and approved by the Hurricane Testing Laboratory, Florida Building Code approved and ICC-ES listed.
All our tubular skylight models have the industry leading 25 year product warranty. To qualify for all warranty benefits, please register your product.
GoGreen Daylight Systems provides a Statement of Certification for the homeowner to download, complete and keep with their tax records. The Statement does not need to be filled with your tax forms, but income tax regulations require taxpayers to have appropriate documentation. To claim a residential tax credits, download IRS form 5695 and instruction sheet. On the 1040 Form, the residential tax credit is claimed on line 52. GoGreen Daylight Systems recommends consulting a tax professional if considering filing for a tax credit.
GoGreen offers a dimmer kit for the 10″and 13″ residential models and for the 21″ commercial model. The dimmer is perfect for any room that may need to be darkened during the day including bedrooms, media and conference rooms. The dimmer is easily installed inside the light pipe and is operated using a remote control.
Yes, GoGreen Daylight Systems has designed an exhaust vent system available for the 10″ model. It is perfect for bathrooms and laundry rooms. The vent kit has a stylish streamlined light fixture with a hidden intake.
Yes, GoGreen Daylight Systems has developed a light kit that is installed directly into the lower section of the light pipe and wiring to a wall switch. The light kit is available in 2 styles: single bulb (60 watts) and dual bulb (120 watts).
GoGreen Daylight Systems tubular skylights are manufactured using the only the highest quality components under the strictest control standards. The dome is made of high impact, thick acrylic, with an aluminum stress collar to prevent leaking. Our flashings are constructed of commercial pure grade 1100 series seamless aluminum. Our Miro-Silver® light pipe is one of the best performing in the industry with a 98% reflectivity rate. The decorative trim ring is powder-coated white seamless aluminum. The diffuser is made of durable acrylic with a slight arc to diffuse light evenly in the room.
Yes, GoGreen Daylight Systems tubular skylights are so energy efficient that our residential models are ENERGY STAR® qualified in all 50 states. Additionally, our residential models may qualify for local tax credits. The U-Factor (or heat transfer) of our units is extremely low at 0.26. The Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (how well a product blocks heat caused by sunlight) is also very minimal at 0.23. As an added benefit, GoGreen Daylight Systems tubular skylights also block out harmful UV rays that can fade clothing, furniture and carpeting.
Sunlight is captured through a dome on the roof and redirected through reflective tubing downward through a prismatic lens on the ceiling – thus brightening any dark living space.
Our Tubular Skylight manufacturer is Natural Light Energy Systems in Peoria, Arizona.
We offer a Limited Lifetime No-leak guarantee (void after reroofs) and a Lifetime Lifetime product warranty. Limited means only that the warranties do not transfer to new Homeowners. We can transfer the warranty as long as we get the new homeowner’s name and contact information.
Our Natural Light Solar Tubes are the brightest and longest lasting in the market. In contrast to other brands, we don’t use plastic lined Tubes that lose half of their brightness in 5 years. We also don’t use polycarbonate domes that yellow in 5 years or plastic ceiling brackets that weaken over time. We use real Silver tubes, High Impact domes that withstands golf balls and hail, and aluminum ceiling brackets that never break. We also offer a Lifetime No-leak guarantee. Most of our competitors only offer a 3 or 5 year leak warranty.
We offer 4 Tube diameter sizes: 10 inch round, 13 inch round, 18 inch round and 21 inch round (for commercial properties only).
We provide 6 feet of tubing as part of your installation cost (three 24 inch sections). Most roofs only need 6 feet of tubing from the ceiling lens to the top of the flashing on the roof. If additional tubing is required to complete the installation, additional 2 foot sections can be purchased at an additional charge. Our installer can inform you how much tubing you will need at the installation.
- The 10 inch Tubular Skylight covers an area of 10×10 Sq. Ft.
- The 13 inch Tubular Skylight covers an area of 15×15 Sq. Ft.
- The 18 inch Tubular Skylight covers an area of 20×20 Sq. Ft. (recommended for ceilings 15 to 20 feet high).
- The 21 inch Tubular Skylight covers an area of 25×25 Sq. Ft. (Only recommended for Commercial applications with ceilings 20 feet or higher and truss/joist spans greater than 24 inches.
No the tubes are not sealed 100 percent since all skylights have to “breathe”. This allows the skylight to weep out any condensate that occurs with temperature differentials during the colder winter months when the home is warm inside. This being so, all Tubular skylights / Solar Tubes / Sun Tunnels will accumulate small amounts of dust on the inside of the ceiling lens through the years. It is recommended to remove and clean the ceiling lens every ten years.
No. The Dome is shaped by design to be self-cleaning. With a smooth finish, dust will not excessively accumulate on the dome to block sunlight.
No. The roof dome must be lifted above the tiles and shingles and domes shaped that it might capture sunlight and redirect it into the tube. Our Natural Light roof domes are elevated about approximately 14 inches above the roof line with a smooth domed finish to prevent dust accumulation. In addition, our roof flashings that hold the roof-dome have an attractive bronze flashing to blend in with any roof tile or shingle color.
Tubular Skylights / Sun Tunnels / Solar Tubes were invented to prevent the problems associated with Traditional Skylights. It is well known that Traditional Skylights almost always leak and allow excessive heat into homes. With clear glass skylights, there is also the concern of the suns UV rays bleaching countertops, cabinets, furniture and flooring. Another concern is that any company who installs Traditional Skylights only offer a 3 year leak warranty on their installation. By contrast, Tubular Skylights don’t have ANY of these concerns. Tubular skylight flashings allow water to flush water away from the flashing quickly to prevent any damning and potential leaking. This design and our professional installation methods allows our company to offer you a Lifetime No-leak Guarantee on your Tubular Skylight installation. In addition, Tubular skylights block 99 percent of UV rays – thus preventing the bleaching of countertops, cabinets, furniture and flooring. Not only that, but our Tubular Skylights produce virtually no heat!
In the event that we are unable to install a Tubular Skylight due to obstructions in the attic, we offer a Daylighting alternative called Redilights. A Redilight is a round LED Light fixture connected by a wire to a small Solar Panel on the roof. The light will only work if the sun is on the Solar Panel. When the sun is covered by clouds the light will dim. When the sun goes down, the light goes off. Since we always carry Redilights on our van, we are able to offer this solution at any installation.
We offer two lens types (Prismatic or Frost white) in two styles (Domed and flat). The prismatic domed shaped lens is by far our most popular since it brings the most light into a home. The Frost white lens provides a calm light that is toned down. The Frost white lens is recommended for those with eye sensitivities or cornea problems. The domed shaped lens provides more light as it pushes more light peripherally. This is recommended for ceilings under 12 feet. The flat lens is recommended for vaulted or cathedral ceilings to maintain aesthetics. Our installer can install either lens type our customers prefer at the installation. There is no change in price for either lens type.
Most of our customers love the light that comes from our Solar Tubes. There are a few people who are so used to living in a dark home that the light may seem initially brighter than they expect. Our manufacturer recommends allowing yourself to adjust to the light for at least one week after installation. If you feel that the light is too bright for your preference, we can add white softening filters to calm the light at the installation at no additional charge. Please ask the installer which lens type you prefer and any filters desired at the installation. We do charge $50 as a trip fee to the installer for return trips to tone down light from our Tubular Skylights. We strive to do our best to make you happy with your Tubular Skylight at the installation.
We do not offer Traditional Skylights for new installations. We do however, offer traditional skylights for replacements of damaged or leaking skylights. Please see the answer to the above question, “Why should I go with a Tubular Skylight instead of a traditional skylight?”
We offer glass and acrylic skylight options. Glass is over 20 degrees cooler than Acrylic and is offered at a slightly higher price than Acrylic Skylights. Acrylic Skylights however, block more of the sun’s harmful UV rays. UV rays coming through a clear glass skylight can bleach countertops, cabinets, furniture and flooring over the years and are definitely not recommended near expensive artwork or antiques. Tubular Skylights (aka Solar Tubes, Sun Tunnels and Sun Tubes) are the best daylighting option when light is desired near expensive artwork, antiques, and furniture.
We offer a 10 year warranty against leaks and manufacturer defects and workmanship. Since we do not replace or repair Curbs or roofing, our warranty does not cover these kinds of leaks. If your curbing or roof is damaged near your existing skylight, our installer will make you aware of the damage and recommend proper repairs. If the damage in your skylight curb or roof is minor, our installer can provide a quote for the repairs and complete the work as we perform the replacement. You are also free to hire a roofer of your choice to perform the repairs.
No. The labor and materials involved in a skylight conversion are very costly and time consuming (typically about $1200 in addition to the cost of the Solar Tube).
A Solar Attic fan works by drawing fresh air into the attic from your existing passive vents (Gables, Ridge vents, Eave Vents, O’hagin Vents) and expelling the built-up heat during the hot Summer months – thus extending the life of your roof and reducing the load on your AC System.
Our Solar Attic Fan manufacturer is Natural Light Energy Systems in Peoria, Arizona.
GoGreen Daylight Systems offers a Limited Lifetime Warranty on the entire fan and a Limited Lifetime No-leak guarantee (void after reroofs). Limited only means that the warranty doesn’t transfer to new home owners. We can transfer the warranty as long as we get the new homeowner’s name and contact information.
We offer the 32 Watt and 48 Watt Solar Attic Fans in both roof mounted and gable mounted options (Price is the same for Gable or roof-mounted options).
The recommended Wattage is based on the square footage of your home. A 32 Watt Solar Attic fan can fully vent an attic of a home with up to 2200 sq. ft. (up to 1560 cfms). A 48 Watt Fan can fully vent an attic of a home with up to 2,825 sq. ft. (up to 1881 cfms). For attics of homes with up to 3500 sq. ft., we recommend two 32 Watt attic fans. For attics of homes with up to 4000 sq. ft., we recommend two 48 Watt attic fans. For homes with more than 4000 sq. ft., three 48 Watt attic fans are recommended.
Our Attic fans can remove up to 25 degrees of built-up heat – thus taking a big load off of your AC system. Since attic temperatures can reach up to 170 degrees during the hot summer months in Arizona (which can shorten the life span of your roof), attic fans are the best option for helping cool off your home. It’s also important to ensure that your home’s attic insulation is adequate. Building code recommends at least R-38 blown insulation. This R Value can be exceeded for added benefit but studies show that values above R-50 provides no added insulation benefits.
Our Natural Light Solar Attic Fans are the most durable in the Market. Sporting the latest Solar Cell technology, commercial grade aluminum components, 5 blade fan, pest screen, and rust-resistant powder-coating housing, no other brand compares. With a professional installation, a lifetime No-Leak Guarantee, and lifetime warranty, Gogreen Daylight Systems is a sure bet for the best installation of the best Solar Attic fan.
No. The Attic and Garage Fans are completely Solar and runs completely on the energy from the sun.
No. The Attic fan removes the sun’s radiant heat from the attic during the day, and since the sun’s heat dissipates outward after sunset, there is no need for the fan to run continually (which shortens the Fan motor’s lifespan). In addition, our roof-mounted Attic Fan flashings are designed to offer passive venting of residual heat in the attic after sunset.
Yes. Our Thermostats are connected directly to the fan and are self-automated to turn the fan on when attic temperatures reach 80 degrees and shut off at 70 degrees. Thermostats are not recommended for Attic fans on Homes in colder climates where ice damning occurs. In colder climates, our Solar Attic fans prevent ice damning and the associated water damage that results. Thermostats are recommended in dry climates like Phoenix, Arizona where snowfall does not occur. Since moisture is minimal during the Winter, the Attic fan does not need to run. During Arizona winters the Thermostat will prevent the fan from running during which will ultimately extend the life of the Attic fan.
Your home’s roof vents provide passive venting which offers little to no benefit during the hot summer days when the sun’s radiant heat is pushing more and more heat into your attic by the minute. A motorized fan will provide the pressure needed to drive out excess heat during the day. Passive vents are helpful after the sun sets when the built-up heat is now able to flow outward through the vents without the addition of more heat from the sun into the attic. In addition, our Attic fans also serve as an additional passive vent after the sun sets.
Natural Light Solar Attic fans can be installed on almost any roof type – commercial or residential. For tile roofs, a tile skirt will be required.
Solar Garage Fans consist of a 48 Watt solar attic fan with a vent kit attached to the ceiling of the garage. This vent kit dedicates the solar attic fan completely to the garage (it will ventilate the garage only, not the attic). The Garage fan works just like the attic fan in that it draws in fresh air from the outside through existing vents. Although many garages don’t have existing vents, we can install them for an additional charge. If your home has a gas water heater, you will most likely have two 16”x9” vents in one of your garage walls (one high and one low). This will be sufficient to provide venting for the Garage fan.
We can install either two 12”x6” vents in the garage door or one 14×14 inch vent in the wall. Either option contains a pest screen to keep the critters out. The vents we provide are also paintable.
Temperatures in a garage in Arizona can exceed up to 150 degrees during the hot summer months. Our Garage fans can remove up to 25 degrees of built-up heat.
Yes. Since a garage fan is not needed in the Arizona winters, a thermostat is recommended to extend the life of the garage fan.
A Redilight is a round LED Light fixture connected by a wire to a small Solar Panel on the roof. The light will only work if the sun is on the Solar Panel. When the sun is covered by clouds the light will dim. When the sun goes down, the light goes off. Since we always carry Redilights on our van, we are able to offer this solution at any installation. For more information, please visit Redilightusa.com.
Although there is an option available to connect the Redilights to the electrical panel as a back-up power source when the sun goes down, it is not available at this time. We are not sure when this option will be available.
8 inch round (12 Watts) and 13 inch round (24 Watts). These are offered with either of two Solar Panels One panel is 24 Watts and the other is 48 Watts. They are sold as a kit which includes one of these Solar panels and a number of lights with the wattage totaling the Wattage of the Solar Panel used. For example, since one 8 inch Redilight requires 12 Watts of electricity, one 24 Watt Solar Panel can accommodate two 8 inch Redilights. A 48 Watt Solar Panel will accommodate four 8 inch Redilights. One 13 inch Redilight requires 24 Watts of electricity. So one 24 Watt solar panel will accommodate only one 13 inch Redilight. A 48 Watt solar panel will accommodate two 13 inch Redilights.
Our Redilights are equivalent in light output to a Tubular Skylight. So an 8 inch Redilight is comparable to a 10 inch Tubular Skylight and is best for bathrooms, hallways, closets and small laundry rooms (Any room up to 10×10 sq. ft.) A 13 inch Redilight is equivalent in light output to a 13 inch Tubular Skylight and is recommended for kitchens, dining rooms, family rooms, large walk-in closets, large master bathrooms, and large laundry rooms (Any room up to 15×15 sq. ft.).
Redilights come with a 7 Year limited warranty on Redilight Skyfixtures (solar LED Light fittings). Warranty applies to Drivers, accessories, Remote Control handset, and Solar Panels. The warranty period starts from the date of the purchase of the Product. Redilight USA warrants that each product will be free from defects in material and workmanship. Your installation by Gogreen Daylight Systems LLC is warrantied against leaks for a limited lifetime (void after reroofs). Limited means that warranties do not transfer to new homeowners unless we get their name and contact information.
Redilight installation is noninvasive. The Solar Panel is attached to the roof with just a few screws which are easily sealable. In addition, there is one small hole drilled for the wire to pass through. This will be located under a roof tile or shingle and is then sealed.
Redilight Skyfixtures offer over 50,000 hours of light usage.
Redilight LEDS have a color rendering index of 82 out of 100. Any Color Rendering Index (CRI) number above 80 is considered good.
“The assignment was challenging, as we were about to have solar panels installed over much of the roof, limiting the available areas for the exterior apertures of the 3 solar tubes, which had long runs to the peak of the roof and required extensions to reach both ends. Careful planning was required before the solar…
“Josh and his staff did a great job installing 6 tubular skylights in our house, as well as 2 exhaust fans in our garage and attic. They were on time, neat / clean and very friendly.”
“Of all the projects in our remodeling projects this was the best. Josh installed our sixth solar tube and it was the easiest installment of all.”
