Happy February, Northlanders! Looking for a cure for cabin fever? We have a great solution: come join us at the 2019 Energy Design Conference & Expo next week, February 26th and 27th, at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center (DECC). The Expo is free and open to the public. We will be exhibiting again this year and are looking forward to connecting with you to discuss the latest in energy-efficient building materials and technologies, renewable energy, best practices, and responsible design.

HVAC from Viessman, Jaga and Zehnder
Viessmann’s sleek, compact boiler design delivers efficient heating to your interior space. Designed with corrosion-resistent alloys, Viessmann condensing boilers are top performers in the market today.
Jaga Radiation presents new concepts in hydronic heating and cooling systems compound the efficiency of condensing boilers and low-temperature heating. Jaga offers traditional low-volume hydronic heating units, as well as models that both heat and cool.
Jaga Radiation in-floor sleek design
Zehnder heat recovery ventilation provides a constant supply of fresh air into indoor spaces. Fresh air is fed into the system via an external wall vent. The system recovers up to 90% of the energy of the exhaust air to warm the incoming fresh air, saving on heating costs. The air distribution system then channels the optimally tempered fresh air to individual rooms as needed. The air volume can be adjusted individually for each room.
Building fabrics and tapes from Siga
SIGA is a family-owned Swiss company that produces rainproof and diffusion-open breathable membranes suitable for creating a permanently wind-tight building envelope. In high-performance building applications, SIGA products can be used for between- and above-rafter insulation and for rear-ventilated (rainscreen) facades.

Wood finishes from Cutek and Rubio Monocoat
CUTEK Extreme wood finish is a synthetic oil-based exterior wood protection system. It penetrates deeply into the wood where it works to control moisture from within. Developed in Australia, Cutek oils do not peel off or crack, and impart exceptional dimensional stability to the wood.
Developed in Belgium, Rubio Monocoat Oil is a next-generation interior finish that colors and protects your wood in one single layer. With no VOCs, Rubio Monocoat is afe and durable enough for any wood finishing need, from children’s furniture to wooden flooring.
Lighting from Novaflex and Soraa
Novaflex offers energy-efficient LED ribbon/tape light in output ranges for every application. Professional-grade lighting ensures proper execution of design intentions. Additionally, Novaflex also offers architectural-grade LED neon in multiple outputs and color options.
