Hydronics technology is increasingly incorporating more radiant cooling into commercial building designs as engineers seek ways to improve energy efficiency and occupant thermal comfort, and lower installation costs.

This sponsored webinar will focus on:

  • Why Radiant Cooling? A review of market conditions that are driving the increase in radiant cooling specifications including LEED benefits, sustainability benefits, and energy efficiency benefits.
  • Radiant Cooling Fundamentals: A review of the basic concepts of how to design, install, and control a radiant cooling system.
  • Complete Climate Control: Integrating radiant cooling into radiant heating designs and lowering installation and construction costs.
  • The Main Challenges - Addressing the key obstacles faced when working with a radiant cooling system.
  • Piping & Controls Best Practices – Review best practices for piping and controlling radiant cooling flow distribution.
  • Integrated Design: How a radiant cooling system is integrated with other building systems such as structural and mechanical systems.
  • Numerous case study examples highlighting installed systems and design approaches.
