Use of radiation to generate heat such as with baseboard heating where the circulating hot water is radiated through conduction by thin metal fins at the bottom of the wall. The room is warmed by air circulating around the heating unit using convention.
A heating system where heat is supplied (radiated) into a room by means of heated surfaces, such as electric resistance elements, hot water (hydronic) radiators, etc.
steel pipes embedded in concrete floor slab through which hot water flows
heating a building by radiation from panels containing hot water or electrical heaters
The process in which heat leaves the surface of one object and travels to the surface of another. This takes place in the form of electromagnetic waves.
Radiant heating produces a flame you can see, with the heat projected like rays from the sun. The heat raises the temperature of any surfaces it touches and is therefore good for providing quick heat in a large room. The overall room air temperature rises as objects in the room are heated.
A system using heating elements in the floors, ceilings, or walls to radiate heat into the room.
the method of heating the walls, floors or ceilings in order to transfer heat to the occupants of a room.
A method of heating, usually consisting of coils or pipes placed in the floor, wall, or ceiling.. Back to the Top
A method of heating, usually consisting of a forced hot water system with pipes placed in the floor, wall, or ceiling; also refers to electrically heated panels
is a method of heating, which usually consists of a forced hot water system with pipes placed in the floor, wall, or ceiling.
A method of heating rooms which consists of coils of electrically-heated wires or heated water pipes, embedded in the floor, wall or ceiling of a room.
A heating system in which only the heat radiated from panels is effective in providing the heating requirements.
A heating system in which warm or hot surfaces are used to radiate heat into the space to be conditioned.
A method of heating, usually consisting of a forced hot water system with pipes placed in the floor, wall, or ceiling; or with electrically heating panels.
A form of home heating delivered by electric-resistance elements--either wall registers or cables or foils beneath the flooring or above the ceiling--or via hot water circulated through in-the-floor tubing or room radiators.
Radiant heating is a heating system which heats a building through radiant heat, rather than other conventional methods including convection heating. The technology has existed since the Roman use of Hypocaust heating. The heat energy is emitted from a warm element (floor, wall, overhead panel) and warms people and other objects in rooms rather than directly heating the air.
