Example text

High radiation intensity on the head of occupants can lead to discomfort depending on duration of occupancy. Most manufacturers give guidance on spacing and mounting height. 13 [9] gives comfort guidance for radiant heat. It is also necessary to avoid mounting close to external walls as the radiant heat transfer will increase the wall heat loss by raising the internal surface temperature of the wall or window. Areas of high air in®ltration such as those close to external doors are not effectively dealt with by radiant heat and require local warm air heaters.

These pressure differences may be positive or negative, but any pressure difference causes air ¯ow through the building. Heat is required to raise the temperature of the in®ltrating outside air to room temperature. Ventilation air heat load Outside air has to be introduced into the building to provide oxygen for occupants, and to dilute, disperse and remove contaminants and odours. This air may be introduced naturally by opening windows or mechanically by fans; either way it needs to be considered separately from in®ltration and requires heating to room temperature.

3 Warm air heaters Warm air heating units for large rooms have to a large extent taken over from centralized steam and water systems with multiple terminals, largely because of their lower initial cost, 40 reduced design time, fast response and simplicity. The main drawback with warm air heating compared with radiant heating in high rooms is the higher temperature gradient and heat loss. 4 Air distribution With warm air heating it is very important to select the air outlets correctly taking into account supply air temperature, throw, height above ¯oor level and sound power.
