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.


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 appreciated the excellent customer service we recently received from West Roberts and Jason who is one of their installers. West was timely in his responsiveness and thorough in explaining the process and benefits of the product. His sincerity in answering difficult questions was much appreciated. We trusted his experience and expertise. When Jason arrived to install the solartube we anticipated wanting, Jason gave us excellent information on unique variables to our situation along with pros and cons. He could have proceeded with the installation but chose to pause and give us a reality check on how working with the valley in the roofline, the location of the trusses in the attic and space we most wanted to impact may or may not meet our expectations. In the end, we chose not to have a Solatube installed because of limitations of our roofline. However, we were impressed with the service received and offered to share our experience in hopes that it will help others have confidence in this company's knowledge and customer service.

Just had my third solatube installed. Love them. When friends stop by, they think I have a light on. Great service and installation as well.

Installers arrived ahead of schedule, were very competent and efficient. Assessed the area we wished to install a Solatube, recommended the size and type, and were in and out within a few hours. We are VERY happy with the finished product and wish we would have installed the Solatube when we moved in three years ago. It makes such a difference having natural light flowing into our kitchen!

We are extremely happy with our choice in using Solar Midwest to install our four solar tubes. Our salesman West Roberts and installer Tom Sterns were great to work with. All of it was error free! We highly recommend this company for this awesome product.

Solar Midwest was excellent to deal with. We now have 3 solar tubes in our townhouse (laundry, den and master bath). They make a world of difference in the light in the room. Having daylight, even on a cloudy day, truly brightens up the living space. We just love it. Solar Midwest was also a dream to work with. We visited the showroom and could compare the different sizes and filters to pick the one right for our spaces. We scheduled our appointment, they showed up on time, did the install faster than I expected and were VERY neat. I expected to have a lot of insulation and drywall dust, but they left nothing! I would highly recommend Solar Midwest.

They are pros that know what they are doing. The first solar tube for the living room 6 years ago turned out great. And the two smaller ones (installed 1 month ago) for the dining room and the kitchen turned out great also. Top notch technicians that know what they are doing.

Attended their annual open house and got a phenomenal deal on Solatubes. I'm a repeat buyer and would only use their products for bringing in daylight. Excellent products and awesome people who are friendly and very professional. They do the job right!

This is the 2nd time we have used Solar Midwest in the last four years. They do a great job and we join all the others on this site in recommending them.

I can't say enough about both the solar tube installation and the product itself. I purchased the night light and fan kit for a small bathroom at the top of a dark stairs. It has changed the whole atmosphere of the space, night or day, and it is lovely and quiet. Love it!!!!
