Emerging Technologies: Radiant Ceiling Cooling
This is the 15th article covering one of several energy-saving technologies evaluated in a recent U.S. Department of Energy report. Buildings with radiant ceiling cooling systems, also known as “chilled beam” systems, incorporate pipes in the ceilings through which chilled water flows. The pipes lie close to the ceiling surfaces or in panels, and they cool the room via natural convection and radiation heat transfer.
