Radiant heating combats escaping warm air (video)
Radiant heating provides an effective, lower cost alternative to traditional heating solutions by heating surfaces and allowing settings on a standard heating systems to be lowered. As a result, the building consumes less energy and reduces expenses by as much as 35 percent over conventional methods.
Radiant heating enables a building to maintain its warmth in situations when the opening of facility doors are constantly opened, otherwise allowing warm, conditioned air to escape.
The application is used in a number of commercial settings. Among them:
- Airplane hangars
- Fire stations
- Retails stores
