Using Radiant Heating for Large, Open Commercial Spaces

Monday, November 7th, 2022
space-heater

The term radiant heating tends to mean something different in the commercial and industrial sector than it does in the residential. When you hear residential HVAC technicians talk about adding radiant heating to a house, they’re usually referring to heating using a boiler, a.k.a. hydronic heating. In hydronic heating, a boiler heats up water and sends it to terminal points such as radiators and baseboard heaters to raise their temperature, which then sends waves of heat into rooms. Other types of radiant heating in homes include electrical elements in the floor or walls that heat up building material and radiate heat indoors.

These methods are used in commercial buildings, but when technicians talk about using a radiant heating system for a commercial or industrial space, they usually mean radiant tube heating. The heat from these is still radiant, i.e. it doesn’t heat the air but instead sends infrared waves to heat the people and objects within that space. However, radiant heaters work much differently than hydronic systems, and they have a special use: they’re excellent at heating large, open spaces such as warehouses or spaces that are often exposed to the outside cold.

Watch Out for These Troubles From Refrigerant Leaks in Your HVAC Equipment

Monday, November 8th, 2021

commercial-HVAC-unit-refrigerant-rechargeAlthough people connect the word “refrigerant” to devices that produce cooling, such as air conditioners and refrigeration equipment, refrigerant is often an essential part of the heating and cooling systems for commercial spaces. The standard rooftop units that most facilities use for climate control use refrigerant to both move into and out of the space. Under normal circumstances, refrigerant-based equipment will use the same charge of refrigerant through its service life—refrigerant circulates in a closed loop and does not dissipate through the heat exchange process.

Refrigerant can escape through leaks, however, and this is a common problem commercial facilities encounter, particularly with aging equipment. Corrosion will start to affect the copper refrigerant lines and allow the chemical blend to escape through even the smallest holes. Leaking refrigerant can lead to serious problems for your facility—some of which you may not anticipate.
