Heating System Simulation – Part 4 of 4

COMPARISON OF ALTERNATIVES: RADIATORS VS UNDERFLOOR HEATING Once the phenomenology of the radiators was analyzed, the possibility of finding better alternatives was raised. The following graph shows the different temperature curves from floor to ceiling in a house depending on the heating system that is used. From these curves, it is deduced that apparently radiant...
