Solatube - Not sure I'm happy
It's been a while since there was a thread on this product. We had a 14" installed yesterday. I'm not real happy right now. We live in the deep south, so it gets pretty sunny here.
It was installed on a cathedral ceiling, which may be part of the problem. It has a lot of sharp blue light with much glare. There is a softening lens in the kit, but the installer told me it doesn't help much.
I actually had a headache sitting in the room yesterday! He had talked us out of getting the dimmer. I think we'll have to get one anyway.
He also told me their warming and softening lens "gives too much of a red color". So, my question is - has anyone tried using the gel sheets cut to size that they use for spotlights? If so, what color?
I'm very disappointed that they cannot provide a filter/lens that gives something other than a blue or red light!
