Chapter 6

Heat Distribution Systems in Buildings

Abstract

This chapter presents the heat distribution systems in buildings, including hot-water radiators, radiant panels (floor, wall, ceiling, and floor-ceiling) and room air heaters. First objective of this study is the analysis of the energy savings in central heating systems with reduced supply temperature, for different types of radiators taking into account the thermal insulation of the distribution pipes and the performance investigation of different types of low-temperature heating system with different methods. Additionally, a mathematical model for numerical modeling of the thermal emission at radiant floors is developed and experimentally validated, and a comparative analysis of the energy, ...
