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.

Nobody wants to pay more than they should. That is why it is important to keep up to date with what things should be costing you.

This blog is here to help you find out if your HVAC system is costing you too much – because it probably is.

Problems with your HVAC system can manifest in a range of ways, all of which are worthy of concern. Whether the problems are financial or comfort related, they need to be dealt with.

Fortunately, comprehensive research has shown that a DOAS combined with radiant cooling can help resolve your HVAC issues.

Change is not always easy. When it comes to HVAC systems, this sentiment certainly holds true. Conventional variable air volume (VAV) systems have been used for a very long time, which gives them the ‘tried and tested’ value.

There is a lot to consider when it comes to building design. Because of globalisation and fast paced technological advancement, building design is not just about being good, it is about being competitive and contemporary.
