How to Calculate Your m²/ft²?

How to Calculate Your m²/ft²?

It’s actually very easy to calculate how many square meters or foot an area is, whether it is a simple rectangle or more complex shape. When dealing with a simple rectangle, just multiply the length by the width for your total square meterage or footage. If you’re dealing with a more complex shape, treat each area as a rectangle and perform the same calculation. Then combine the square meterage or footage of each area for to get the total area.

Common Questions

What is a Sun Tunnel?

Sun tunnels are a fantastic way to introduce natural daylight into your home. Unlike a typical roof window, sun tunnels can be installed in virtually any room of the home. This includes bathrooms, stairwells, corridors and more.

Sun tunnels have three key components in most cases. These include the top glazing and frame, flexible or rigid tubing, and bottom light diffuser. When combined these parts guide daylight into your home and diffuse it to create a comfortable living space.

How Much Does It Cost to Install a Sun Tunnel?

Sun tunnels are typically more cost-effective than typical roof windows. However, before you buy a tunnel for your home you must consider the overall installation cost.

The sun tunnel itself can range between £300 and £1,000. This is dependent upon the brand, diameter and tubing length. The cost of installation can also vary, but it is always recommended that you employ a qualified tradesperson. The cost of installation can therefore be between £300 - £900.

You can therefore expect the cost of installing a sun tunnel to be between £600 and £1,900. This is again dependent on the exact sun tunnel you select and tradesperson you use.  

Do You Need Planning Permission for a Sun Tunnel?

You do not typically require planning permission to fit a sun tunnel in the UK. This is, however, dependent upon the building regulations in your region.

You should always do your own due diligence before buying or installing a sun tunnel. This is as properties in conservation areas or of historical significance may be governed by different laws.

Do Sun Tunnels Leak?

In the past, skylights were known to be plagued with leaks, causing annoying drips or even structural damage due to water ingress. Modern sun tunnels however are designed to be far more robust against the elements. If installed correctly, your sun tube should provide you with excellent natural lighting, added energy efficiency and no trouble with leaks.
