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.

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.

Thanks,

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!!!!

Sincerely,

Marcia H.

The communication was clear and timely, and the pros who did the installation arrived on time and did great work. My roof is not very steep (what the installer termed a "dance floor"), so he had to work in very tight quarters in the attic, but he did it with no complaints. The previously dark mid-section of my great room is now bright even on a cloudy day, and my dark bathroom is bathed in light so I can put a live plant in there now! When you can't punch a hole in a wall to add a window to brighten a dark area, solar tubes are a great solution, and Solar Midwest does stellar (pun sort of intended) work.

I'm not getting enough light in the kitchen. It seems that the Tube should have been larger to cover the kitchen space.

I live in a townhome where the lighting is not good in living room and kitchen. My associations had pre-approved Solatubes for install. The transformation to my upstairs was WOW! Even on a cloudy day, the light shines in and they have a solar panel that provide a soft light in the evening. Why did I wait ? Tom was the technician. He showed me the options and explained the process thoroughly. He installed 2 Solatubes (1 with light add on) in about 3 hours. When job was completed he explained how to remove the cover to change light bulb in the future. He cleaned up so well I couldn't tell I had holes drilled in my ceiling ! I would highly recommend Solar Midwest. This is all that they do so you can depend on the job being done right.

We have several Solatubes and everyone we have dealt with at Solar Midwest has been helpful and professional in the work they do. They have always explained what they are going to do at an installation and once finished, have reviewed each step in the process again to make sure we have all the information we need.

Wow! This place is great! Those solatubes are awesome as far as how much natural light comes in the room. I was there kind of late in the afternoon and I had to ask if there were light bulbs in there because they brought in so much natural light. And they answered no. It was all natural. I highly recommend this company. The staff are amazing to work with as well. They have a large enough team that seams to work really well together and that speaks to me.

I love my Solar tubes. I love them so much I have 5 of them. They provide natural daylight into my small non-end unit town home where more windows are not an option. Solar Midwest is extremely easy to work with and have provided excellent, prompt, professional services and when I decide to get my 6th Solar tube I will contact them again.
