Radiant Heating and Cooling

Radiant heating and radiant cooling systems are different from typical HVAC systems because they heat or cool surfaces rather than air.  The warm or cool surfaces then radiate heat to occupants.  Radiant systems can save energy while also providing better comfort, depending on the building and the climate.

Reducing Heat Loss & Air Resistance In HVAC Systems

Reducing lesses in an HVAC system’s air distribution system can help provide energy efficiency gains. The efficiency of any given air path is generally measured by its resistance to air flow. This is its static pressure loss or "head loss". Heat losses are also important to avoid.

Active HVAC Systems

Mechanical Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems help keep building occupants comfortable when passive design strategies aren’t enough. To design efficiently, don’t oversize the system, choose efficient components, and optimize the whole system.
