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!!!!

A very very pleasant experience. That pretty much sums it up. We also have a business and pride ourselves in our professional approach, follow up, installations and service afterwards. We found that Solar Midwest has the same business ethics. The installer we had was very personable, skilled in his installation and very professional. We actually asked for his return on a second installation for us. The company has a great product, staff and attitude. Thanks for Brightening up our Day.

Excellent company, excellent product! We had a 10” Solatube installed a few months ago and love it. We had it installed in the mud room between the kitchen and garage. It is so nice not to have to turn on the light as we pass through. The staff (from sales staff to installers were professional and customer focused at all times). I highly recommend them and their product.

This company is the best! I had solar tubes put in twice, once about ~1 yr go and once recently. They make it so easy! Answered questions, provided options. The installers are polite, show up when scheduled, KNOWLEDGEABLE, quick and clean up after themselves. In less than 2 hrs you have an amazing product! It's like the lights are turned on. I am so happy with them. The one thing I regret? That I didn't do it YEARS ago. PS, I never write reviews and rarely use exclamation points. This company deserves every one of them...they are that good.

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.

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!

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.

I still am in awe of the difference these solar tubes make in my home; they add so much light, it's wonderful. The gentleman who was here to install them was very efficient. He explained to me everything he would be doing. He also cleaned as he worked, so there was no dust or residue after he was complete. I highly recommend these for any home.

First off, we love the additional light and solar night light feature that SolaTube has provided us. However, the dealer and service personnel were more stringent than we expected. We had wiring that was not up to code, so they told us we would need to hire an electrician (they don't have anyone) in order for them to install the optional bathroom vent fan, even though the installer said he could do it, but is not allowed to by Solar Midwest. We opted out of that so we could get the full benefit of the SolaTube now and deal with the vent fan on our own. Disappointing they could not get the job done as completey as we wanted.

We love so much our solar light in "dark" entry ...that now we are installing it in bathroom/the one with the fan ! Great product, fast and very efficient work by technician so far! Recommended!

Solar Midwest installed two solatubes for us 12-years ago. They are fabulous! They bring in so much light into our great room. I recently had Solar Midwest back to install another solatube in the kitchen. They provided great guidance regarding placement. The install was quick and clean. Each person I worked with from estimating, scheduling to installation was professional, friendly, helpful, and hard working.
