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.

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!!!!

Installation of a solar tube in my condo . It gives a lot of light in the dark corners of my kitchen. It saves turning on the lights which were needed in the past. I am very pleased with the product and the very clean job install. I will recommend this company

I ordered two solar tubes to be installed. Installer Tom Sterns was friendly and professional and most of all totally efficient. He informed me what he needed to do and how for each step of the installation. He used a tarp to cover all nearby areas and cleaned everything up before he left. I had two wonderful solar tubes and absolutely no mess when he left. I would definitely recommend them and installer Tom Sterns. I have had no problems with my solar tubes since they were installed.

We had Solar tube light installed in our house and the service was great. We love the lights and are so glad we bought them. We especially like the one in the bathroom with the attached exhaust fan. We needed both in our 1979 era house!

We had 2 solar tubes installed; one in the laundry room & one for the basement stairwell. Chris did a great job, was knowledgeable, efficient, & cleaned up everything before he left. We love the outcome!! We have recommended Solar Midwest to several of our friends!!

We had three Solatubes installed. Eric Johnson, the technician, arrived on time and immediately started working. I appreciated that he was careful about the mess and did a thorough job cleaning up, afterwards. The whole process from getting the estimate to post-installation warranty information was easy and straight forward. We love the addition light the tubes provide and wonder why we didn't do this sooner. :-)

I had a solar tube (skylight) installed, and man, oh man. Best decision ever. Our space was so dark that we would trip. We got the night light add-on and worth it. Highly recommend to get it if you have a dark space. The installer was also super nice and explained everything, with no surprises.

We were lucky enough to work with one of their senior installers Tom. And our sales person was Rob who was also great. Our whole experience was amazing. We had a leak in our ceiling after they were installed and Tom came back out the same day we called. We found out the leak wasn't from the installation at all and Tom took the time to explain his theory and everything he did to make sure our roof was sealed up. Above and beyond and we have peace of mind now and couldn't be happier. Buy from them you won't regret it!

There are very few certified installers. I am overall pleased with the work. Gavin came initially to estimate the work and later came back w/ a couple of helpers..And there were a couple of rain dates and delays so it took 3 -4 different days.. He was very tidy put plastic up and cleaned up afterwards.. it was a hard job as I had an addition with trusses for him to squeeze into up in the roof.. The window (apprx 6ftx24" wall opening) did provide some extra light but in hindsight I would've done 2 smaller more narrow windows between trusses) as I could use more light. And they would've been more evenly spaced in the room. I opted for the 1 slightly wider window because I wanted a vented window with solar shade. That is pretty nice to have option to close and 2 smaller windows did not but I've only closed it like 3-4 times in the hot afternoon sun. And I got the hand crank type which is cumbersome to use, having to hold your arms over your head to open and it's hard to tell if properly fully closed tight so I've only opened it twice.. Lastly, the unfortunate thing (reason for only 4 Stars)⭐is the finish work. I understand I have to paint my ceiling, but I didn't like the trim wood on the ceiling look. Prefer a more flush look and clean corners, like walls have.. Hard to see in the pics.. Also the trim wood wasn't painted very well, there are sanding marks and the worker (Gavin's helper) left smudges and finger prints on the ceiling near the trim.. Hey never did final inspection and I paid in full. He spoke to me about fixing it but I chose not to but he never did see his partners work.. Overall, Gavin work was great! Communication great until the end..

We live the solar tubes that we had installed! They take a dark inside room and brighten it up like there is a window in the room.
