Radiant buildings used 32% less energy than the EIA 2012 Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS) average. In a school or university setting, energy savings of this magnitude could mean more funds may be shifted to programming.
You don't need to sacrifice comfort to be energy efficient! A New Buildings Institute survey of 1,645 building occupants found, “In a space using a radiant system, a person has a 66% chance of having an equal or higher temperature satisfaction than in an all-air conditioned building.”
Quiet is often a commodity in an education building. Radiant systems operate silently, so there will be one less noise variables in the classrooms and study halls.
