Radiant HVAC and It’s Power Demand Advantage vs Alternative Systems
Thermal storage and “smart” floors further enhance the business case of greener strategies by smoothing day and night time peaks and valleys in power demand.
When opting for radiant comfort, it’s important to consider that water has 3,500 times the energy transport capacity of air. The bar chart demonstrates how the total power consumption for both radiant wet and radiant air cooling is remarkably similar. By comparison, first cost analysis and the carbon footprint for radiant air conditioning is significantly less.
