Practical Analysis of a New Type Radiant Heating Technology in a Large Space Building
MetadataShow full item record
Recently, building energy consumption and total social energy consumption has increased rapidly and non-renewable energy is becoming exhausted. How can we use energy efficiently to respond to rapid increases in building construction, especially in the fields of heating in large space and building energy conservation? In an attempt to conserve energy and reduce energy loss, it has become necessary to seek effective means of reducing heat loss in energy consumption. The development of improved means of heat transfer, especially using radiant heating, is thus a very important aspect of energy conservation in buildings. Infrared radiant heating is a new kind of large space heating method. Based on a real heating system design, the initial investment, performance and energy conservation in radiant heating are analyzed. The building's thermal load was calculated by means of new methods and the results are compared with traditional calculation methods. The performance of radiant heating in a large space was simulated and the characteristics are introduced in this paper. The fundamental theory of radiant heating, and the advantages of performance and practical arrangement are introduced in the paper.
