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.

Literally, a day brightener! Installer was professional, courteous, and completed the work within the estimated time. I used to leave my "over the sink" light on in my kitchen 24/7, now it's off all day! I live in an interior townhome unit and with the two solatubes installed, the middle of my home feels bright and cheery. The solar nightlights are perfect, adding just enough glow to make my way to the kitchen after dark.

Midwest gave me an estimate and we set up a date for the installation. The young man who came to install, Cole, was punctual, pleasant, and competent. He covered the entire area below the work space causing less of a mess and cleaned up the mess (most of it) before leaving. He showed me several options for the "window" part of the tube itself and gave information on each one. He did not advise the most expensive options and when I chose the least expensive one agreed with the choice. It was a very pleasant experience and I love the solar tube! I'd recommend Solar Tube to anyone.

My install was scheduled on a day that ended up being rainy. The installers showed up on time nonetheless, and explained that they would complete the inside work but would have to reschedule the exterior for a later date. This was totally understandable. They completed the inside to the extent possible and left. Within a few hours I got a call back as the sun was out and weather was cooperating. Within a short time they were back on the job and completed the work. This ended up being a long day for them as they had another customer after me. I really appreciated the effort made to complete the job and I am thoroughly pleased with the results. I find myself reaching for the light switch when leaving the room only to remember the lights aren't on! This has really brightened my kitchen and bathroom. The solar charged nightlights are also a great bonus.

Installation man was very helpful with placement of (2) 10" Sola Tubes in the living room. They were brighter than we had expected but we soon got used to the brighter look of our room. The whole job took only about 3 hours and there was very little clean-up due to the use of drop clothes over rugs and furniture .
