Best way to insulate solar tube skylights?
We are remodeling an old DARK house with limited opportunity to add windows.
Plan was for 2 solar tubes in bathroom. Owners were so happy with additional light
we are adding more. What is best way to insulate tubes. The bottom 14" will be in the new cellulose attic insulation, but 2'-4' will be exposed above insulation.
Fiberglass batts and duct tape would work but be tough to do neatly with no gaps.
