An integrated radiant cooling system is a radiant system that is embedded into the structure of the building, rather than installed post-construction. Integrated radiant systems are called thermo-active building systems (TABS), as they activate and use the thermal mass of the building structure to heat or cool the space.

Hopefully, you are already aware of the benefits radiant systems offer compared to conventional HVAC systems. These range from higher profitability, to improved energy efficiency, through to superior indoor environmental quality (IEQ).

Whether you are retrofitting or designing a new commercial building, the best way to achieve optimal thermal comfort is to install radiant systems to manage the sensible energy load.

Designing and constructing an industrial building (from factories, to gas stations, to call centres) is complex process. In modern energy and fashion conscious society, the design and installation of a radiant systems has become a vital aspect of this process.

Designing and constructing a great commercial building is always a challenge and some may think installing a floor cooling system just adds to the complexity.

Most people are familiar with radiant cooling / heating systems. In fact, in some parts of the world they are such a common fixture of everyday life that people seldom even notice how essential they are to comfort. However, despite this, the myth that radiant cooling systems cannot be used in hot, humid climates persists.

In a previous blog, I covered the differences between low and high mass radiant systems. In short, there are four major differences; energy retention, the speed of response, the materials used, and the physical construction. In this blog, I will cover what these differences mean for the building project, and what the merits and challenges of each system are. Hopefully, this will help you decide which radiant system, high or low mass, you should use for your next project.

There are a lot of ways to install a radiant system. However, radiant systems can be broadly split into low mass radiant systems and high mass radiant systems. The difference between these is important because it can significantly affect the best design for your next project.

In previous blogs, I have spoken about the advantages that a dedicated outdoor air system (DOAS) combined with radiant cooling/heating system has over conventional systems. One of the key advantages I repeatedly highlight is the ability of a “DOAS + Radiant” system to decouple the handling of sensible and latent energy loads.
