Playing it Cool with Radiant

Radiant heating is a widely recognized technology, one that’s respected for delivering superior comfort and energy-efficient operation. But what about the ability for radiant cooling solutions? Take good notes! Guest speaker Max Rohr, REHAU Marketing and Academy Manager, will explain the physics of absorbing heat energy through a network of pipes and discuss application considerations for an energy efficient system design for radiant cooling.

You’ll learn:

→ Is comfort a number on a thermostat? Do designers have more or less more control options?
→ Why are hybrid radiant/forced-air systems the best way to handle sensible and latent loads?
→ Condensation?! No sweat. How do you avoid condensation in a radiant cooling system?
→ What is the most humid U.S. city with a radiant cooling project?
→ What inputs does your control system need to operate a radiant cooling system?
→ What are the most common installation types for radiant cooling projects?

Max Rohr is a graduate of the University of Utah. He currently serves as REHAU Academy Manager (Leesburg, Va.). Max is a self-described hydronics and thermostat nerd. He has worked in the hydronics and solar industries for 20 years (or however many years Hot Rod is willing to admit to the Division of Child Labor) in the installation, sales and manufacturing sectors.
