Air-sealing a Solatube on new construction
I am planning a house, with cathedral ceilings, and my client needs some daylight from the east. The only way to get it is with a skylight, on the east slope of a cathedral ceiling (or a dormer, but let’s not go there).
We are planning a “pretty good” house with an air barrier at the ceiling (drywall or MemBrain). It seems like a solatube (or competitor) would be better than a full skylight. But I cannot figure out how to run the air seal (and no response from solatube . . . 0.
Does anyone have experience with tying a solatube into a ceiling air barrier?
