Conservation Technologies' background is in building construction, the performance of buildings, and energy issues in general. When builders moved toward more air-tight and better insulated building construction techniques, we were there for the various side effects of that transition.
Tighter construction, as well as the use of new materials with properties different than those traditionally used, led the industry into a stream of problems. Elevated interior relative humidity levels, inconsistent energy performance, indoor air quality problems, backdrafting combustion equipment and bulk water intrusion are all examples of issues that have kept the building performance industry on its toes over the last few decades. Conservation Technologies' is researching the growing evidence of rapidly approaching energy supply problems. We are trying to move the building performance industry in a direction that focuses on energy issues in addition to problems in buildings.
Conservation Technologies sells energy efficient building supplies, Venmar heat recovery ventilation systems, and solar electric and hot water systems. We also consult in building design and performance. We work with various utilities on the design and delivery of energy efficiency and conservation programs. Conservation Technologies has a comprehensive support team that includes sales, installation and technical support professionals. We serve a growing area in the upper Midwest from our Duluth office.
