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!!!!

They were very helpful in making the decision about which options to use. The Solatube installation went well. We love how much natural light the Solatube provides in our bathroom which does not have any other windows. We have not used the ventilation yet as we are still in the process of finishing the remodeling of the bathroom.

We love our solar tubes! Can't believe how much more light we have in our house. Wanted to turn off the lights in the bathroom and hallway the first few days but remembered the lights weren't on.

We had a 15 yo installation that was having condensing problems in the winter and we called to see what to do. The technology and parts were different now and we elected to replace our old installation. The dome, tube and lens/diffuser were all replaced in less than an hour. They used the same flashing and so didn't have to disrupt the roof at all. Everyone was pleasant and very competent. Solar Midwest is the only SolaTube dealer/installer in the Twin Cities area.

I love all 4 of my Solatubes! This last one was a replacement for my very first Solatube, over 20 years old. This newest Solatube emits such wonderful natural light, not artificial at all. Installation went very smoothly and the Tech was very professional, courteous and did a better job of cleaning up than I would have done!!

Wow! If you think it's cool when it's cloudy (still so much light) wait until the sun comes out! Since having our Solatube installed last week it's been cloudy outside until yesterday afternoon when the sun came out and.. well you just have to see it for yourself. The kitchen has been my favorite (love to cook) and least favorite room in our house for the simple fact that it was always so dark due to heavy tree cover in our backyard. Thankfully my husband knows this little fact about me so he ordered and had one installed as a surprise for my birthday. Now the kitchen is without a doubt my favorite room in the house. We're already deciding where our next Solatube is going to go. Get the one with a night light, it's awesome!
