As architects design more open floor plans, traditional forced air systems are becoming obsolete. The Ahhm radiant heating and cooling system is comprised of aluminum panels with channels integrated into a series of panels placed in the ceiling joist bays.
The Ahhm Radiant system uses radiant panels to simultaneously transfer heat energy from panels to other room surfaces and masses – and to absorb excess heat energy from those very same sources. In both cases, the fluid (a mixture of water and glycol) flowing into the panels comes from the same energy source. In the most diffused cases, this source is a collection of heat pumps that can rapidly shift between heating and cooling modes. The amount of panels needed for each room is determined by reviewing cooling and heating loads to ensure that our system can provide a constant temperature year round. Dehumidification is provided during cooling to mitigate condensation concerns.
Gone are the days of noisy forced air systems delivering air filled with dust and other contaminants throughout the home.
