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!!!!

I've been wanting one of these for a long time. I would see them at the Minnesota State Fair and wanted one installed. Finally had it done this year and my wife and I love it. We had it installed in our upstairs bathroom which has no window. Now we have light around the clock. Our daughter in law came over and she kept going in there to turn off the light which wasn't even on! LOL! The first few days was cloudy and the night light batteries were not charging. With Sun we've been receiving and the days getting longer the night light has been lasting until morning! Great product and great addition to our home.

Great product to get light on the main level in my older story and a half house. Install took less than 2 hours and the installer was very professional and knowledgeable as was the salesperson. I did notice the tube material appeared somewhat flimsy which shouldn't be a big deal since it's in an area rarely if ever accessed.

We had 2 of the SolaTubes installed in our kitchen, each with the solar nightlight and one with the exhaust fan. We no longer have to turn on a light when we go into the kitchen. In fact, we keep checking to make sure that we haven’t left the light on.

The installer was on time and very professional. He took the time to explain the best positioning for the tubes. He worked quickly and was very neat and tidy. The tubes work exactly as advertised. Much cheaper and convenient than skylights.

We are very satisfied we our solar tube love having the light in our kitchen, everybody was very helpful. Thank you for a great job!

Solar Midwest installed a solartube in our hallway. They were so easy to work with from the first meeting to the last. Professional and competent. Love what it has done for our home.

I recently had a SOLATUBE put in my bathroom and absolutely love it. The installer was professional and did an excellent job even cleaning up after himself. In an earlier review I mentioned that my batteries in the nightlight had worn out after only a month but I had forgotten that the batteries were charged during the day by the sun --- and we've had no sun for the past few days. 😐 So my bad! Anyhow, love my SOLATUBE and am thinking of another one for my kitchen.

Greatest idea ever. Not real happy with the install, kind of took the easy way out and now it will cost me more money to have a vent reinstalled, but I love the solatube

Wonderful addition to our windowless bathroom! Took no time at all and no leaks. we are still trying to turn off lights when none are on. Installer Tom was courteous too.

I live in a townhouse and this is the best investment I've made to it! Solar Midwest was great to work with. The installer had everything he needed to complete the installation in less than two hours.
