Radiana is a heating and cooling system which creates the perfect environment through intelligent climate control. It sets the right temperature whilst managing humidity levels and improves air quality, providing a comfortable, healthy environment to live, work or play in.
Radiana is a modular plasterboard ceiling panel which conditions a building’s environment using radiation in a way that is in harmony with nature. This innovative system allows you to cool or heat without draughts, noise or the dehumidifying effect of traditional air conditioning.
How does Radiana work?
Radiant cooling cools a ceiling by passing cold water through the pipes which absorb the heat radiated from the rest of the room. Heat will all ways travel to colder areas and areas that are ‘colder’ will always attract heat rays to them. The hot ‘rays’ travel from the radiant heat element until they reach a surface, such as a wall, floor or piece of furniture.
There are no hot or cold spots in an environment heated or cooled from the ceiling because radiation expands equally in all directions. This is recognised by certification by the International WELL Building Institute. The Well v2 standard only gives credits to radiant cooling, such as Radiana.
The system uses water as the basis of transferring heat and as water is much more efficient than air at carrying temperature (typically 50% more).
Radiant heating and cooling can increase well-being, provide energy saving and also reduce your carbon footprint.
How is Radiana Installed?
Radiana is installed above the ceiling, so it’s entirely hidden. This heating and cooling solution is ideal for style-conscious homes and offices.
Radiana With An Air Source Heat Pump
Radiana works with a heat pump in the same way it would with underfloor heating, instead, the pipes are in the ceiling.
Matched with a heat pump, radiana can lead to an energy saving of between 17 – 42 %, providing lower costs, lower CO2 emissions (by the same amount: between 17 and 42%) and reduced contribution to the heat island effect. As water can carry 3500 more times the energy than air.
Radiana at your fingertips
Controlling your Radiana system is simple. From the Radiana app on your smartphone you can set your perfect environment from wherever you are.
Why choose a Radiana system over traditional Underfloor Heating?
Compared to underfloor heating, Radiana is more efficient and gives a more even heat throughout the rooms and unlike underfloor heating, Radiana offer both heating and cooling that is invisible and silent.
