    Creative Technologies Help Reuse Water

    Posted 7/14/2015 by Astrid Mohn

    As I’m sitting at my desk, staring outside at what seems like endless sheets of rain pouring from heaven, it is difficult to imagine that there is a serious drought going on in many parts of our country. And the widespread drought is reaching epic proportions resulting in research and products that offer pretty drastic solutions. In fact, many of us struggle with the image of transforming wastewater into potable (read drinkable) water, yet this is a very real (and constructive) solution to the drought problems.

    Dreaming of Treehouses with Uponor Radiant Heating

    Posted 6/26/2015 by Astrid Mohn

    As a manufacturer of PEX tubing, you will often find Uponor reps and employees talk about the comfort of radiant-heated floors. You don’t have to look further than the Uponor website for information about its benefits, value and effectiveness. In fact, your eyes may glaze over as we wax about all its wonderful attributes (it’s quiet, it’s hypoallergenic, it’s cost effective, it’s energy efficient) ….. yes, we can go on and on, but I digress.

    I came upon an article the other day outlining the five biggest architectural and building trends for 2015. The basic premise of the article is that we want our homes to be a refuge from the outside world; and we achieve this by creating indoor and outdoor living spaces that encourage and provide this escape.

    Uponor Radiant Floor Heating Systems for Architects

    Posted 2/5/2015 by Astrid Mohn

    Growing up in Norway in the 70s, almost every home included one or two rooms with radiant heat. It wasn’t seen as luxurious or upscale; it was simply a commonplace feature. Homes built in the 70s mostly included radiant heated floors in bathrooms and laundry rooms, but today, when I visit Norway, I’ve noticed that it’s fairly common for newer homes to have radiant heat throughout an entire home.

    5 Tips to Avoid Frozen Pipes in Your Building

    Posted 1/16/2015 by Astrid Mohn

    Posted 1/9/2015 by Astrid Mohn

    After decades of living in the frozen tundra, I take pride in knowing the precautions needed to survive the harsh winter climate. Obviously, to those of us who’ve braved the north, a home’s water pipes must be properly insulated in unheated areas and they need some extra TLC to survive the extended freeze. “Duh,” you might say.
