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!

5 star all the way ! Extremely happy with the product, installation, and especially with the customer service!

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.

Teri I.

Great product, affordable, great service. What's not to like? Already recommended to several people.

Erik S.

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!!!!

We had an old solar tube replaced. The employees that came were very professional and friendly. They cleaned up thoroughly once the job was completed.

Solar Midwest did an excellent job from proposal to completion. The installer(Eric) consulted with me on the types of Solar tube options and educated me on why a the domed version would perform better than the flush mount I was originally planning on. After installation, Eric again consulted with me on the interior options showing how the light was affected by different lens and filters options. This personal care made the choices easy. Thank you!

Solar Midwest installed a Solatube in our home to brighten up our hallway area. It is perfect, and the night light installed inside of it works great also. We visited the showroom first and were met by friendly and knowledgeable sales staff, and it was easy to see the different versions of tubes and lenses available to us. The installation went very well, with great care taken cutting into our ceiling and cleaning up after. I recommend this product to anyone needing some additional natural light in your home.

A solid outfit. Good customer service, products, and very fair to deal with.

I recently had Solar Midwest put in two solartubes in my home. The company had a booth at the State Fair and luckily I found them because I really wanted these! Within three weeks of setting up an appointment at the Fair, I had someone over going through the cost and extras that were unique to the solartubes being put into both my kitchen and bathroom. They were put in the same day and it took only a few hours. I absolutely love them! They were really affordable and I never have to turn on the lights in either of those rooms. I have a constant nightlight on. Definitely a great decision, and soon after I had them installed, my mom had one put in her dark hallway. Thank you guys so much! Will definitely be referring everyone to Solar Midwest!!!

Fantastic! On time. Great attention to detail, including very careful regarding interior house.

We had 3 solar tubes placed in our dark twin home. Kitchen, Bath and Den. The TV was in the den so installer recommended we use a dimmer rather than a solar night light so we could watch TV more comfortably. He also mentioned we had to keep away from ceiling fans or we would get the flutter from the fan. I really appreciated his helpfulness, and the installation was very professional and clean.

Kaycen, our technician, is the main reason we went with this company! If I could give him 10 stars, I would. He came out for our consultation and made sure we could put the 2 Solatubes in where we wanted to, then he came back to install them. He was super friendly, professional, quick and thorough. He knew exactly what he was doing, and explained things to us, including answering the 500 questions we were asking him. We are so happy with our Solatubes and even happier that we chose Solar Midwest to install them. Their customer service is A+ plus they came in under their estimate. Don’t hesitate to use them- you’ll be glad you did.
