The main goal of this Project was to characterize the behavior of radiant heating and cooling systems in order to provide information for designers that would reduce both the cost and the perceived risk associated with radiant systems. The aim is to improve energy and comfort performance by encouraging the appropriate adoption of radiant systems in both new construction and retrofit of commercial buildings in California.

A secondary goal was to assess the benefits of integrated control of HVAC, active facades and daylight harvesting.
