Radiant Central Heating & Cooling

Like the warmth from the sun, hydronic solutions use radiation and convection to spread warmth evenly throughout your entire home without hot and cold drafts or circulating dust. Radiant energy heating and cooling has many benefits, and it’s the underlying reason why Waterware has developed expertise in this area with three technologies available for commercial and residential applications.

What is Radiant Energy?

Radiant energy is the energy of electromagnetic waves. These waves can travel through space and are made up of tiny particles called photons – think of them as little packets of energy. Nature always tries to find a balance, where things that are warm become cold, and things that are cold become warm. These principals are used in radiant energy systems to heat or cool a space, creating perfect comfort.

The way in which this happens is by radiant exchange using radiant energy. It’s the warmth you feel from the sun or camp fire, and the cold you feel from standing on the ski field or in the cool store. By manipulating the surface temperature of items in your house we can heat or cool as required by letting radiant energy perform its magic.

Why Choose a Radiant Energy Solution?

Waterware provides 3 radiant energy solution; Active Ceiling, Underfloor and Radiators These systems all provide a uniformity of temperature, are silent, healthy, and represent a low running cost option for home or commercial heating and cooling solutions. With no air blowers there is no air movement, and no recirculation or collection of dust particles resulting in cleaner air.

All systems can be efficiently managed through a centralised controller that caters to zoning requirements. This allows you to minimise any wasted heat. Flexibility is also provided where either electric, gas, or diesel boilers – which support the radiant energy systems – can be installed depending on the available services in your area.
