LG Art Cool Gallery Mini split A/C
Ductless mini-split heating & air conditioning units are an efficient and effective way to get heating and cooling in a space that may have limited accessibility for traditional heating and cooling options. New innovations from LG have made the wall mounted unit required for the system more stylish and able to blend with any decor.
Designed to look like a photo frame this streamlined unit can be customized with personal photos or artwork. The vents are located on the sides of the unit and deliver remotely controlled hot or cool air on demand. This award winning design takes one of the few negatives about the ductless mini split system out of the equation by replacing the clunky rectangular wall unit with this lower profile photo frame design.
Switchable LCD Smart Glass
New innovations in glass technology allow for glass to go from clear to opaque at the flick of a switch. A layer of electrically charged LCD film is laminated between pieces of glass and allows for a clear view in “on mode” and for privacy when turned off. The product has been used largely in the commercial sector to create instant privacy in offices, conference rooms and hotels and is now popping up all over the residential building & remodeling industry.
Some companies that offer this technology also have it available in film form that can be retro-fitted and applied to existing glass almost anywhere. Smart Glass can also be used as a projection surface and can have touch-screen film added as well, making the possibilities almost endless.

Velux Solar Powered Skylight
The new Solar powered skylight by Velux was one of many products we had the pleasure of learning about at our latest visit to the JLC Live industry trade show. Skylights have the ability to bring light into a space that may not allow for a window.
In the case of this bathroom from our Lincoln Master Suite Renovation, the client did not want a window in the shower for privacy concerns but desired natural light in their updated master bath. The need for ventilation in the bathroom was also a factor and made the velux solar powered skylight the logical choice.
The skylight caught our attention… and here’s why:
- Remote controlled solar powered skylight requires no wiring, which makes for easy and cost effective installation.
- The included touch screen remote is intuitive and convenient eliminating the need for long cranks or devices to open or close the unit.
- The solar panel will work on cloudy days and with indirect light. It does not have to be exposed to direct sunlight to function.
- With the integrated rain sensor the solar powered skylight will close automatically in case of inclement weather.
- 10 year “No leak” warranty
- 30% Tax Credit available for product & installation
- Another 30% tax credit available with the purchase of the integral solar blinds available for the skylight in a variety of colors.
