Heat transfer fundamentals: radiant versus convection heat

 

Processing your request, Please wait....

A kilowatt of radiant cooling and a kilowatt of convection heat do not have the same heat transfer properties.

Whilst both take a kilowatt of energy to produce, their heat transfer properties are markedly different, implying dramatic differences in the amount of heat capacity you need to install and the length of time you need to run them. So as far as heating your home, office or workspace goes, there is a considerable energy difference at stake.

In a Comfort Heating situation, Conduction (physical transfer of heat from source to target by direct contact) is not an option, so whilst it is the most efficient method of the three (presuming a suitable medium to conduct of course), we’re left with Convection or radiant cooling.
