Radiant heating is an energy-efficient heating technology that, unlike traditional forced-air systems that heat the air, employs warm radiant surfaces like ceilings or floors to deliver infrared heat directly to objects and people within a space. Radiant heating creates a comfortable, even distribution of warmth, without the need for visible and noisy equipment.
Condensation forms on cold surfaces when the air surrounding the surface is humid and the surface temperature drops below the dew point temperature of the air. mSense room comfort sensors continuously monitor the dew point in each room and Messana Controls ensure that the radiant ceiling or floor surface temperature never falls below the dew point to avoid condensation.
Radiant cooling is an energy-efficient cooling technology that, unlike traditional forced-air systems that cool the air, employs chilled radiant surfaces like ceilings or floors to directly absorb the heat radiated by objects and people within a space. Radiant cooling creates a comfortable, even distribution of coolness, without the need for visible and noisy equipment.
A radiant ceiling is a type of heating and cooling hydronic terminal that uses the large unobstructed surface area of the ceiling to transfer thermal energy to or from the objects in a room through thermal radiation. Radiant ceilings can be used as a standalone terminal or in conjunction with other heating and cooling systems to provide an energy-efficient and effective indoor climate solution.
