Ventilation Add-On Kit Columbus, Ohio

Ventilation Add-On Kit

Solatube Daylighting Systems can easily transform a dark, interior bathroom or laundry room into a bright and beautiful space. But what about the issue of trapped humidity caused by steamy showers or a constantly running washer and dryer? Solatube can handle that too. The Ventilation Add-On Kit combines daylighting and ventilation into one attractive fixture, leaving your rooms humidity-free and your ceiling looking orderly and uncluttered.

  • 160 DS / DSe
  • 290 DS / DSe

This add-on easily attaches to the inside of the system’s tubing to deliver lighting for nighttime use. It also prevents unnecessary clutter on your ceiling because it uses the same space as a Solatube Daylighting System.

Universal Light Add-On Kit

This kit works with LED, compact fluorescent, or incandescent bulbs. The 160 DS kit holds one medium base light bulb up to 100-watt equivalent. The 290 DS kit holds two medium base bulbs.

Daylight Dimmer

Bright sunlight flooding your home is great…unless you want to take an afternoon nap or use your entertainment center in the middle of the day. Never fear. The optional Daylight Dimmer solves this issue. Using a patented butterfly baffle and a convenient wall-mounted switch (sold separately), the Daylight Dimmer lets you adjust room light levels simply and easily.

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

“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.”

J.M.

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

“I had a Solatube System installed with a solar powered LED night light and I would highly recommend Todd and the Solatube. What was once a dark kitchen is so much brighter now. I never have to turn my lights on during the day at all. Several of my neighbors and daughter and son in law had one installed after seeing how well mine brightened up my condo. Todd was very professional and explained everything through the installation.”

Carolyn V., Heath, OH

“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!”

Kent G.
“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 thrilled with my new Solatube Daylighting System. I had flawless, courteous, fast installation. My only regret is I waited so long to order these.”
