Sun Tubes

Sun Tubes
Spend $300 now and SAVE $45 each year... ROI = 15%

Highlights

Bring light into rooms that do not have windows or skylight access. The interior of the 'tube' magnifies the light so that the fixture in the ceiling looks like there is actually a bulb inside. Guests often look for a light switch to turn it off when they leave a bathroom, closet, or laundry area.

The ROI Calculation is based on 14" diameter. Flexible or rigid tubing allows the unit to go around virtually any attic obstructions unlike other lighting systems, which saves you money.

  3. If you reach the $1,500 cap in 2009, you are not eligible for additional tax credits in 2010.

Choose Sun Tubes that meet these criteria to get the Tax Credit; and check products carefully, because in many cases an ENERGY STAR certification does not necessarily meet the tax credit requirements below:
• They must have a U-factor and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) less than or equal to 0.30. You can find the U-factor and SHGC on the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) label.
• Only some Energ...
