Radiant Heating/Cooling System


[edit]
Description Radiant heating and cooling systems use convection and radiation to control temperature between the system and its environment.
Advantages
  • low energy consumption
  • Excellent in hot and dry climates
  • Efficient lifecycle costs
Disadvantages
  • Complex system when integrating zone control
  • Cooling most important in humid climates which are unsuitable
  • Heating most important in extremely cold climates which are unsuitable
Characteristic features
Application barriers
  • Environmental factors such as cold or humidity cause various performance problems
