Most homes in Chicago and in other cities in the US with cold temperatures are designed with radiant heating systems as they are widely considered a necessity. However, some residential and commercial spaces do not come with such heating systems. New York Engineers is here to design your radiant heat system.
New York Engineers is a team of highly skilled architects and home system designers who are dedicated to providing functional and sustainable systems for both residential and commercial buildings. We offer services within the city of Chicago and outside, and throughout the course of the years, we have gathered a wide client base. Having been around in the industry for years, we are considered an expert in the field of mechanical, electrical and plumbing, which is why our clients have put their full trust in us and in every project that we deliver.
NY Engineers understands how MEP systems are important in residential and commercial areas. That’s why we design systems with precision, speed, and accountability in mind. We cover different areas of MEP, so whether it’s a radiant heat system, boiler, chiller, air economizer, steam radiator, emergency generator, chilled beam, or any other systems MEP related, we can deliver a functional, sustainable, and cost-effective system design that is always up to the mark.
NYE Radiant Heating System Design
Radiant heating is a system that helps heat indoor and outdoor spaces. It is a technology that uses radiant energy to transfer radiant heat from a heat source to a particular object. It is the replacement for the conventional convection heating systems.
With NYE, we can extend our experience in BIM modeling whatever industry you are in. We help clients from various industries including the commercial, hospitality, retail, residential, government, and industrial sector with their radiant heat design needs. We are experts in using 2D and 3D software tools like Revit and AutoCad. With our expertise, you can better predict the costs of the project, promote team collaboration, access information easily, make changes instantly, and allocate resources in the most efficient way.
We produce accurate and detailed MEP models with annotations and isometric views. We send clients comprehensive analysis and reports to refine your design process further. We help you ensure that your radiant heating system project is delivered on time and on budget plus all the safety measures considered. We also approach our projects with utmost confidentiality. We guarantee reliability and quality assurance to help you enjoy quick turnaround time with little to no errors. Our final deliverables are always bound to meet clients’ expectations.
Different Types of Radiant Heating Systems
There are three main types of a radiant heating system, and each type offers its own heating features. Choosing which one to use may seem like a taxing job, but it simply depends on your needs, preferences, and budget. Nevertheless, regardless of the type of radiant heating system you choose, NY Engineers can always craft the right design for you.
Here are the three types of radiant heating systems we can cover:
- Electric Radiant Heating System
This type of radiant heating system, as its name suggests, mainly uses electricity. It consists of heat-producing electric coils. These coils are made of metal and have high resistance to electricity. They radiate heat when there is electricity. They heat the wall, ceiling or floor, depending on where you install them. We can help you bring that system to life with the right MEP tools to design the model.
- Hydronic Radiant Heating System
This system makes use of heated water to warm up an area. It comprises boiler pumps that heat the water using pipes. Just like the electric radiant system, this system can also be installed underneath the wall, ceiling, or floor. Moreover, this type of radiant heating system is cheaper than its electric counterpart because you get to choose from a wide range of fuels such as oil, gas, propane, wood, electricity, or solar power.
- Air Radiant Heating System
An air radiant heating system carries heated air for heat transfer. Although it is not the most efficient among the three, as air has very little capacity to carry as well as retain heat, it can still heat an area.
If you don’t have much experience with radiant heating and you find it hard to choose one among the three radiant heating systems, you can turn to NYE and you can get expert advice as to which system to choose. We can also survey your area and give honest recommendations that can truly add value to your project.
