This professional guide is packed with tools that make the work of HVAC designers, engineers and technicians go more smoothly and easily. The Radiant Heating and Cooling Handbook features all the information you need to create efficient systems for residential, commercial and industrial applications.
Radiant systems are gaining popularity, because of their efficiency and comfort. Radiant heating in particular has grown rapidly. However, heating is only half of the comfort equation. Many designers find themselves including central air conditioners and duct systems to provide space cooling. This book describes hybrid systems that include both radiant heating and convective cooling. However, radiant cooling is also possible, and this book shows you how.
Radiant Heating and Cooling Handbook features:
* Everything you need to size, design and position radiant heating and cooling equipment.
* Models for coupling radiant and forced air heating and cooling for the ultimate in comfort and energy savings.
* All the examples and sample calculations you need to solve real-world heating and cooling problems in buildings, contracting and engineering.
* Essential information relating heating and cooling theory to the principles of thermal comfort.
* Equations, strategies and analyses to help you set parameters from sizing and cost to human comfort.
This complete source of hands-on radiant heating and cooling system design covers hydronic panels, electric panels, control systems as well as heating and cooling theory as it relates to radiant heat transfer.
