Worried about Santa getting into your home this year? He is.

TO: Homeowners
FROM: Santa Claus
RE: "Santa-Tubes"

As you know, chimneys are what I normally use to deliver gifts, but the chimney situation is getting complicated. With all this spare-the-air business, I'm keeping it simple and skipping them entirely. Why not spare this old guy the trouble and install some Solatubes?

I know most of you are a bit strapped for cash and trust me, we realized things would be tight when we had to cut back on Talking Dolly* production. But tubular daylighting is the fastest and lowest-cost improvement you can make on your home. (They take less time to install than hanging up twinkle lights!) With the heater running nonstop and electric lights staying on extra hours all day, wouldn't it be nice to get a break on your electric bill? Solatubes brighten your dark home in the winter without using any electricity. (And the daylight brightens your bad mood after ugly weather, tacky gifts, and a growing gut).

My job is made easier by people with Solatubes. Not only do I stay clean and free of nasty burns, but those larger ones are easier to squeeze through. When I can save time on enter/exit shenanigans, I have time to leave more gifts, making everyone happy! Ho ho ho!

If you want lots of 'green' gifts from my green bag of goodies, install some Solatubes. I'd do it for you, but those Certified Installers are faster than the blink of an eye and guarantee a leak proof installation (plus they're a whole lot cleaner than reindeer).

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a bright light.

*P.S. I hear that, unlike Toyland, Naturalight has a surplus of Daylight Dollies. But you didn't hear that from me.

Spruce up Your Home for the Holidays

Go green this holiday season with Solatube's Factory Authorized Green Tag Sales Event. Whether you're looking to deck your own halls this winter or give an eco-friendly gift, Solatube Daylighting Systems are the holiday lights that keep on shining all year round.

Are You Dreaming of a Bright Christmas?
When you call or click here between December 1-15 to schedule your installation, you'll save $50 on each Solatube installed between now and December 20. Pocketing some green is almost as good as giving green!

Solatube Owners Get More Presents from Santa
With about a 2-hour installation per tube, the installer will be cleaned up and out the door before you even finish stringing your Christmas lights. With such a hassle-free home improvement that saves electricity throughout the festivities, why wait until after the holidays? Besides, St. Nick can deliver more presents when he has both a chimney and a Solatube to work with.

Usher in the Season of Light with the Harvest Fair

This weekend, October 3 & 4, the Sonoma County Harvest Fair is coming to the fairgrounds. Look for our indoor booth in the Grace Pavilion to see Solatubes in action. For directions and a schedule of events, click here. As the days get shorter and the sun disappears, your home can still be brighter with natural daylight.

Glow in the Light of the Season
By installing Solatubes now, you won't have to rush to finish home improvements before family comes for the holidays. Imagine how your skin will glow when they greet you and comment on your good health. And how delicious the hearty meal will look under full spectrum sunlight. The family photo might turn out better this year since the colors will look balanced and natural, and it will make you smile when it's no longer framed in a shadowy corner. Even if the day is dark outside, your home will be illuminated with the cheer of natural light and the warmth of loved ones.

Give to Others by Gifting Yourself
With Solatube, you won't have to turn electric lights on during the day anymore, so when it comes time to gift-shop, your pocketbook will have a joyful new jangle. You'll be happier, not just because of the savings, but also because daylight makes you feel better. The wonderful thing about Solatube is that it's designed to bring in the light when you need it most--Not just when the sun's high and strong in the summer, but when it's low in the winter sky, too. Learn how the dome makes this possible by clicking here.

There's no need to live in the dark for yet another winter. If you still have questions, check out the Free Information Package and soon you'll know that Solatube is the bright decision.

Subway's Eco-Store Includes Solatubes

Subway has built an "Eco-Store" in an attempt to save energy and help the environment. Lighting played a huge role in the design & construction so in addition to motion-censor lighting in the bathroom and compact fluorescent light bulbs, they utilized Solatubes to daylight the interior. Watch for glimpses of Solatubes being installed throughout this 5-minute video and specifically check out the featured commentary starting at 3:29.

Solatube Adds 148 to Olympic "Metal" Count

Watch Solatubes perform at their best in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. There were 148 Solatube 750 Daylighting Systems* included in the design of the Beijing Science & Technology University Gymnasium. With energy efficiency being a design goal for this building, daylighting was a priority over artificial lighting. The facility holds the taekwondo & judo competitions, as well as the Paralympics wheelchair rugby & wheelchair basketball competitions. Watch for glimpses of Solatubes, the tubular daylighting device that takes the gold!

To find out more about the design challenges and vision, read the Solatube case study.

*The 750DS will be available in the United States later this year.

Make Your Hot Attic More Bearable*

The Solar Star Attic Fan is whisper-quiet and works from sunup to sundown, cooling your attic before a mechanical fan would even turn on.

Your attic is probably over 100 degrees in the summer. With a Solar Star, heat that has no way to escape can be released, lowering the temperature in your attic by an average of 20 degrees. Compared to a mechanical fan that costs money to run, the Solar Star pays for itself after a few summer months.

One common concern is whether the Solar Star sucks heat out of homes in the winter. Actually, in the winter, your attic is as cold as the outside air and without ventilation, moisture from rain or snow builds up. The Solar Star works to remove this harmful moisture that could eventually rot the framework of your roof. Think of your attic as a blanket for your home: It keeps you warm better if it's dry than if it's wet!

One Solar Star can take as little as 30 minutes to install so what are you waiting for? This is your chance to be cooler.

*Polar bear not included.

Light Up Mom's Life for Mother's Day!

May is the month of mothers, so why not thank yours by showing her the light? Every mother has dark areas in her home that could stand to be brightened up. Provide her with the solution--Solatube. You could give her a Solatube outright, or give a gift certificate of any value to be used towards a Solatube product.

Maybe your mother's not living in the dark but her home could use some cooling off. The Solar Star attic fan uses free power from the sun to silently pull the hot air and moisture out of Mom's attic.

To sweeten the special, when the installation has been completed, Mom will receive a gift certificate for a pound of See's Candy. (Maybe that's all she was expecting in the first place!)

This special isn't limited to mothers--if a friend or family member has a birthday coming up, Solatubes make great birthday presents, too... or just get one for yourself.

This special is good through May 30--it's the month to brighten up!

In an age where we are all watching the costs of energy rise, here is a simple, easy, and once installed, FREE quality solution to reduce cooling costs in the summer and heating costs in the winter...and it is whisper quiet!

Did You Know...

Human beings fare much better under natural sunlight than artificial light...the pineal gland (located where some refer to the "third eye") is positively stimulated by natural light, promoting health and a greater sense of well being. Solatubes are a fantastic product to install at this time of year in any home, business, and/or school to offset the "winter blahs." Call us for a free phone estimate at 707-575-7707 and let us brighten your day! http://www.naturalight.org/
