• Residential Pricing

No two houses are identical. Yours is uniquely yours. Its attic height, roof pitch and roof material all have a bearing on the components needed to build and install your daylighting and attic ventilation systems. Our modular products are designed to be custom fit for your particular needs. That's also why we don't have a standard pricing menu.

Here's the good news! Our Solatube 160 ISn and 290 ISn Daylighting Systems with Solar Electric NightLight qualify for a 30% federal tax credit. That means it's more affordable than ever to bring the beauty of natural sunlight into your home. This valuable tax credit applies to Solar Star Attic Fans as well.

To give you a ballpark figure of what you might expect to pay, check out these examples of common system configurations using national pricing averages. Your local dealer can provide product and installation pricing for your home.
