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.

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!!!!

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!

I had several SolaTubes installed recently. They make a world of difference in the rooms they're in...especially in the bathroom that doesn't have a window and an entryway that seemed a bit dark. Both areas are very bright now. I'm very glad I made the decision to do this. I had the square lights installed and set them on a 45 degree angle to the wall. They look very nice. One thing I had an issue with was the batteries in the night lights in two of the tubes. I bought Amazo...n rechargeables that hold more charge and the installer was kind enough to come and install them for me. That was above and beyond! Now they all stay lit all night, even if the day has been cloudy. I will most likely have a couple more installed next year - and I'll be sure to have the stronger batteries on hand. See more

While living in Tucson, AZ, I had three of these installed in my home and loved them. Now living in MNn. Recently had one installed in my townhouse., which lights up a dark stairwell. It has a night light that is helpful in finding the light switch for the upper hallway at night. When I can afford it, will have another one installed in the main bathroom which has no window.

Have 2 in our current home - really lit up our master bath, and our dark back hallway.. LOVE them!!! Just had one put in our new place- it's great- and the night light feature is like having your own private full moon!! Awesome!!!

Solar Midwest installed two solatubes for us 12-years ago. They are fabulous! They bring in so much light into our great room. I recently had Solar Midwest back to install another solatube in the kitchen. They provided great guidance regarding placement. The install was quick and clean. Each person I worked with from estimating, scheduling to installation was professional, friendly, helpful, and hard working.

I’ve been wanting a Solatube for quite some time. We finally set up an appointment at the home show. I knew I would like it....I didn’t know how much I would LOVE it!!! We are in an interior townhome and don’t have many windows. The daylight we get now is fantastic! It’s so bright, you want to check that you haven’t left a light on! We also have the nightlight in ours which is a wonderful addition! They were awesome to work with and it only took the installer about a hour. We are thrilled!

Over the years we have had 4 solar tubes installed. It is a very economical way to update and bring natural light into dark spaces. Jason was just out today to do an install, did a great job, and was gone with out a trace. You could not do better than using Solar Midwest.

I love this solar light. Brightens my kitchen and provides a nightlight too. I actually want another one.
