Quick Easy Installation

Solatube Daylighting Systems take just a couple of hours to install.  Attic obstructions aren't a problem either.  Our angle adapters and extension tubing make it easy to skirt around rafters and joists for quick, easy installation.


Summer means longer days, more sun, and warmer temperatures. If heat isn’t vented from your attic properly, it builds up and causes problems in your home:

  • Living spaces become hot and uncomfortable
  • Air conditioning units work harder to keep rooms cool
  • Utility costs rise due to increased energy demand
  • Roof structures and materials deteriorate

A Solar Star Attic Fan solves these problems by removing excess heat from your home, giving you a more comfortable interior and lower energy bills.

Reduce Energy Use

We all love free stuff.  With an energy-efficient Solatube Daylighting System you can light your home for free during the day using no-cost sunlight.  That means you can spend less on electricity and more on you.

Solar Star - Solar Attic Fan

As the leader in solar-powered attic ventilation systems, Solar Star offers technologically advanced and eco-friendly solutions that deliver comfort and peace of mind. By harnessing the power of the sun, Solar Star Attic Fans cost nothing to operate and are virtually maintenance-free. They also require no electrical wiring, making them easy to install and maintain. Since Solar Star Attic Fans prevent heat and moisture from reaching critical levels, your attic stays cool and dry. As a result, you get greater comfort, lower utility bills and prolonged roof life.

Protect your home

Heat and moisture are your enemies when it comes to your home. But just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean they aren’t there... hiding in your attic and causing damage. Solar Star Attic Fans neutralize moisture and drive out heat, keeping your home cool in summer and protecting it from harm during the winter.

Leakproof Design

Solatube flashings are ingenious in their design.  Engineered to work with all roof types - including shingle, slate, cedar shake, and metal; they are seamless.  Their one piece construction eliminates the possibility of leaks.  Plus, their circular design allows rain and debris to bypass the rooftop dome, making them virtually maintenance-free.


With winter comes ice, snow, and cold temperatures. When coupled with excess humidity from showers, humidifiers, and dishwashers, it can lead to:

  • Leaks and structural decay triggered by ice buildup on your roof
  • Damage to insulation and framing materials produced by moisture accumulation
  • Weakening of internal structures caused by mold and fungus growth

A Solar Star Attic Fan prevents these issues by equalizing interior and exterior temperatures, safeguarding your home from the worst of winter.
