About Green Home Ohio

Green Home Ohio is owned and operated by Todd Tamburino in Columbus, Ohio.  A West Point graduate and 9-year Army veteran, Todd had the good fortune to see the world – South Korea, Germany, France, Belgium, Austria, Italy, and many Eastern European countries, to name just a few.  Throughout his career he was stationed at Fort Hood, Texas; Fort Polk, Louisiana; Fort Knox, Kentucky; and trained with the US Marines for a year in Quantico, Virginia.

From Humble Beginnings

After the Army, Todd and his wife, Jenn (a former Army nurse), moved to Phoenix, Arizona, where they gained an appreciation for the benefits of natural daylight.  When they moved to Columbus in 2003, it was only a matter of time before daylighting would become an integral part of their lives.

Todd installed his first Solatube Daylighting Systems in his own home in 2006 to brighten his home office and the garage.  Working long hours from home under the Solatube system, Todd recognized how beneficial natural daylight was and how effective the Solatube Daylighting System was at delivering it from sunup to sundown.  The natural daylight helped increase his comfort all year long while reducing the need for electric lights.

Bringing Daylighting to Columbus

So in 2010, after several years of personal experience with the Solatube Daylighting System, Todd and his wife’s family founded Capital City Daylighting.  As the Premier Solatube Dealer for Columbus and Central Ohio, their goal was to brighten the lives of fellow Ohioans while making homes more comfortable and enjoyable.  Capital City Daylighting and Solatube were an instant hit as many people were craving daylight in their homes and lives.

The Indow interior thermal and acoustic window inserts were added to their product offerings in 2013 to help Ohioans increase the energy efficiency of their windows and homes without the high cost of replacement windows.  As with the Solatube products, Todd and family discovered that people in central Ohio were very receptive to Indow for their homes.

In 2015, Todd took over and restructured the company as Green Home Ohio.  This change enhanced operations and also allowed for more energy efficient products to be offered to Ohioans in the future.

Green Home Ohio staff is trained and certified by the manufacturers, and all work is guaranteed and fully insured.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY

“Todd installed 4 solar tubes in my daughter’s Condo. He was very professional and personable. He completed the whole job in 1 day. The results are fantastic. It is no longer dark in the entryway or bathrooms. He also talked us into a solar attic fan along with all the tax breaks.”

Carl D

“Todd was extremely professional and knowledgeable. The install went very smoothly and efficiently. They did a great job!”

Nicholson Builders

“Today they installed a solar attic fan. They arrived within 5 minutes of the proposed start time. They again explained the installation work and showed me the fan to be installed. Great care was taken to ensure no damage to the gutters or roof. The installation was completed quickly. The final invoice was explained and we were told we would receive paperwork in February to use with our tax return to receive the proper tax credit. If the product works as well as the installation process we will be happy with this product well into the future!”

“Very good product, good vibes from personnel, and good fast service.”

Eydie, Columbus Ohio

“Todd Tamburino of Green Home Ohio installed a Solatube in my kitchen today, and the increased brightness is just amazing. I am looking forward to not having to turn on lights during most of the day to work, read, etc in that area of my home. The added advantage, of course, will be cost savings for power and the assurance that we are using natural light as an energy source. Todd was very prompt for our appointment and carefully cleaned up the area where he had worked.”

We do appreciate all you’ve done. Our new (very old) house is much warmer.

Mike, Grove City, OH

“I am delighted with the solar tube. It brightens up my otherwise dark kitchen and saves using energy to keep lights on even in the daytime. Todd was very prompt, left my home clean, and followed up the next day to check on my satisfaction.”

Joan M., Dublin, OH

“The New Albany-Plain Township Historical Society had Indows installed in our Ealy House built in 1860. This house is our museum and has no storm windows and we wanted to keep it historic. The Indows are great, when you look across the room you don’t see them. They have cut down on the traffic noise. Mr. Tamburino built custom frames for our basement windows and they look great.”

David Cline - President of NAPT Historical Society

“We are so happy to have chosen Green Home Ohio to install four Solatubes in our home. Mr Tamburino communicated clearly and provided recommendations without any sales pressure. He is honest and trustworthy, did not cut corners, and treated us and our home with the utmost respect. We are thrilled with the results and would not hesitate to use this company again with any future projects!”

“It was a great experience from start to finish.  Todd obviously knows the Solatube product inside and out and can provide technology comparisons to Solatube competitors (which I verified as accurate based on my prior research). Showed up when promised and got right to work.  Took him exactly 3 hours to complete as he had estimated. My first experience with Green Home, but I will certainly look them up again, as we are considering solar-powered attic fans in the future.”
Columbus Ohio Customer

“It went very well. Todd got here on time, introduced himself and told me exactly what he was going to do and how long it would take. After he finished, he stated that everything went well. He than told me about a situation in the attic that could be a problem for me in the future when I needed a new roof. I would highly recommend Green Home Ohio to anyone needing their service!”

“I am very happy with my Indow [panels]. The only negative is the up front price (but it’s still way less than replacing the windows). We have already turned our thermostat down 2 degrees, and I don’t feel air coming in from my windows. I am very happy.”

Tina S., Galloway, OH

We love our INDOW window storm windows! Todd is super to work with. In fact we had saved his name and number for 2 years before we were ready to use him because we were so impressed meeting him at a home show. Indow is a quality product that was perfect for our situation. The windows have improved our heating immensely and also a plus, its really quiet. Highly recommend them!
