Radiant-heating CPD

HCP has developed a RIBA-accredited CPD seminar on water-based radiant-heating solutions. It covers the benefits of specifying radiant heat and also looks at the standards relating to radiant heating, including their contribution towards BREEAM and LEED compliance.

Radiant-heating systems offer quicker warm-up times and smaller plant demand as the water content of a system is only about 15% that of a traditional radiator system. Further energy efficiencies can be achieved with room zoning.

Installing heating in the ceiling can increase net usable floor area by up to 10%.
