Designing Overhead Radiant Cooling and Heating Systems

  • Johnson Barrow Inc 2024 21st Avenue South Seattle United States (map)

April’s JBU event will be focused on the application of chilled beam and radiant CHW cooling and HW heating solutions and system types.  The session should be of interest to Consulting Engineers and Design Build Contractors designing these type of systems, and also to Mechanical Contractors installing them, and End Users who will live with the finished system. 

The session will focus on the following areas:

  • Why a radiant or chilled beam solution?

  • Decoupling and new code requirements

  • Capacity, layout, and space considerations

  • Humidity control in radiant and chilled beam buildings

  • Design strategies and ideas, recovering waste heat, high temp chillers, employing free cooling

  • Passive vs Active systems

  • Architectural and acoustical considerations

  • OSA delivery and the challenges to overcome

  • Heating with chilled beams

  • Cost considerations between the systems

  • Making your design cost effective!!!

  • Lessons learned - field coordination

  • Questions & Open Discussion

 We will have some sample chilled beam, radiant panel, and radiant sail units on display and PDH certificates will be available for PEs who need them.

This session will be co-led by Matt Pemberton, Regional Manager of Dadanco and Mike O’Rourke, National Sales Manager of Barcol Air.
