Embedded Tube Radiant Systems to Maximize LEED Points
GBCI Approved | 1 CE Hour | 0090006344
As more and more jurisdictions and building owners are requiring higher levels of LEED certification for their projects, design teams are looking beyond traditional HVAC solutions to provide the energy efficiency needed to maximize LEED points while maintaining occupant comfort and safety. In-slab radiant heating systems have enjoyed popularity both here in the United States and abroad for years. Now, with the availability of improved control systems and better understanding within the design and construction community, the same concept can be applied to radiant cooling as an energy-efficient and cost-effective solution. This program will cover the following topics:
- Radiant Cooling Heat Transfer Fundamentals
- Radiant Cooling Performance/Capacity
- Typical Construction Methods
- Case Studies
Attendees will gain an understanding of how in-slab radiant cooling systems can be used as part of an energy-efficient design solution to maximize Energy and Atmosphere credits for LEED certification, and see examples of how this has been accomplished on projects both here in the United States and abroad.
