Solatube 290 DS Daylighting System

What Will YOUR Reaction Be?

Solatube 290 DS Daylighting System

Just wanted to let you know that even on the coldest of day how much I enjoy the solatube that was installed in my kitchen.  It is so bright and sunny that it makes me forget for a few minutes just how freezing cold it is.  It is by far the best investment that I have ever made!

I have already recommended your company to friends that have seen both of our solar tubes. They are the greatest invention for dark spaces and the installation was wonderful. The installer does a really great job.

Our whole experience was perfect! We love our Solatube. It's made all the difference in the world in our kitchen. Even after three months we marvel at the amount of light. We recommend your company all the time.

Solar Star RM1200 Attic Fan

I was going to buy an air conditioner. I am so happy I didn't waste my money.  My house is about 10 degrees cooler and it has cleared up my moisture problem in the winter time. The best part about my solar-powered attic fan is that it runs by the sun, so I pay no money to keep my house cool. Finally, they came out and were professional and did quality work.


Dorthy M.

Solar Star RM 1600 Attic Fan

I just want to tell you how very pleased I am with my new solar attic fan. It does seem unbelievable, but I have been sleeping so much better since it was installed. I have had a sleeping problem for quite some time and I cannot tell you how thrilled and surprised I am about the extra sleep I am getting.

My neighbor and I would go to each other's house and hers was always much cooler than mine. We have identical houses and could not understand why the difference in temperature. When she had her Solatube installed the day that I had my solar attic fan installed we found out the answer. The installer informed her that she already had an attic fan from Solar Midwest, Inc.

So I just want to thank you so much for the extra benefit that I am getting from the new attic fan.

Thank you so very much!!!!

This is the 2nd time we have used Solar Midwest in the last four years. They do a great job and we join all the others on this site in recommending them.

I still am in awe of the difference these solar tubes make in my home; they add so much light, it's wonderful. The gentleman who was here to install them was very efficient. He explained to me everything he would be doing. He also cleaned as he worked, so there was no dust or residue after he was complete. I highly recommend these for any home.

First off, we love the additional light and solar night light feature that SolaTube has provided us. However, the dealer and service personnel were more stringent than we expected. We had wiring that was not up to code, so they told us we would need to hire an electrician (they don't have anyone) in order for them to install the optional bathroom vent fan, even though the installer said he could do it, but is not allowed to by Solar Midwest. We opted out of that so we could get the full benefit of the SolaTube now and deal with the vent fan on our own. Disappointing they could not get the job done as completey as we wanted.

I can't say enough about both the solar tube installation and the product itself. I purchased the night light and fan kit for a small bathroom at the top of a dark stairs. It has changed the whole atmosphere of the space, night or day, and it is lovely and quiet. Love it!!!!

The installation was done when promised, done quickly and I have no problems at all.

We just had Solar Midwest install our 4th Solatube during a major kitchen remodel. We have done business with Solar Midwest for 20 years. They have a superior product, and maintain a very professional, knowledgeable, and skilled staff! As they told us years ago, already having a great product, their success depends on an installation of high integrity - additional light as promised and an installation that doesn’t leak. After 20 years of hail storms, heavy rain, snow, and ice, AND enjoying the additional natural light in our home, we highly recommend Solar Midwest, and their Solatube product!

I had a dark entryway that I wanted to lighten up with a solar tube. I reached out to Solar Midwest and they promptly responded, provided the information I needed and scheduled an installer to come out promptly. The installer was very knowledgeable and made sure to inform me of all the details before he started the install (location, how much light I will get in the winter vs. summer to to the pitch in our roof, etc). Solar tubes are great and I would highly recommend this company.

The sales group and installer did a very good job. I am however waiting to see if the "night light" (the rechargeable solar powered) works as there hasn't been a whole lot of sun to consistently recharge the unit.

I received info by mail ...I think...that there would be a savings at MN Fair time. So when I went to the fair I went to the improvement bldg and got the info and signed up for a home visit. I knew what I wanted to have I stalled so that all worked out well!

The job of installing 2 solar tube lights was done very fast and in a professional manner. Tom who did the installation did an excellent job. He kept us advised of what he was doing all the time. Cleaned up after the job and made sure everything was to our satisfaction. Would recommend Solar Midwest Inc. to anyone looking to have solar tubes installed. Tony
