Basics & Theory

HPAC Magazine: Cooling With Radiant
HPAC Magazine says cooling with radiant offers many of the same benefits as radiant heating; cooling systems that are comfortable, efficient and quiet.

HPAC Magazine: Evaporative & Radiative Fluid Cooling
HPAC magazine says there will come a time when we won't use compressors for the cooling of people and buildings, as evaporative/radiative fluid cooling is quite capable of doing this.

Plumbing & HVAC: Residential Hydronic Cooling
Plumbing & HVAC says in most hydronic residential cooling systems today, cooling, like heating, is done through hydronic air handlers or fan coils. That may take the form of a central air handler for the entire home or individual air handlers for each room. There are high-wall units that go near the ceiling or console units that go below the window.
