The Missing Link to Net Zero


Each piece of IQ Radiant Glass® is a Thermal Comfort Zone


Radiant Heating Glass provides thermal comfort on demand and to where it is needed.


CURRENT CONVENTIONAL HEATING PRACTICE

At best we heat every cubic foot of a room to provide thermal comfort to the few individuals in the room. In many instances we do that whether the room is occupied or not. Many buildings are occupied for eight hours, five days a week and yet the heat goes on.


For example, let's take an average US single home of 1500 SQ FT. The home has 8 FT ceilings, thus the volume of the house is aprox, 12,000 cubic feet:

  • The average human being has a mass of about 3.5 cubic feet.

  • The average household has 2.5 occupants

  • We heat 12000 cubic feet to provide thermal comfort to 6 cubic feet of human beings, a ratio of 2000 to 1

We can clearly improve on that. Current technologies are available.


HOW DO WE INCREASE EFFICIENCY AND REDUCE CARBON OUTPUT?

  • On site or off site non fossil fuel electricity source

  • Eliminate or substantially reduce conventional heating systems

  • A conventional system could be used to maintain a reduced ambient temperature with radiant heating glass providing the individual zones with the thermal comfort

  • Incorporate IQ Radiant Heating Glass as either part or all of the external fenestration

  • We have add on solutions to retain legacy single pane windows - in many older school buildings, especially on the upper floors, the windows are opened for ventilation and relief from stifling heat regardless of the season

  • Interior applications such as glass partition walls, glass radiators or heated mirrors can also be used to complete a system upgrade

  • Artificial Intelligence or Smart Home Systems can control the comfort zones on demand

  • Heating glass upgrades require minor changes to existing buildings with little disruption, minimum to no demolition

  • Most applications are add-ons and as the glass is clear there is no need to redo the decor or repair and paint areas disrupted by demolition

  • There is no down time for educational, institutional or most commercial operations

  • Institutional, educational, and commercial applications are particularly well suited for the comfort zone strategy

THE BENEFITS OF IQ RADIANT GLASS INCLUDE:

  • Superb thermal comfort at lower ambient temperatures

  • Significant energy savings

  • No moving parts so little to no maintenance costs

  • Elimination of indoor condensation, molds, mites and dust

  • No odors

  • Health benefits for those suffering from asthma or arthritis

  • Silent operation
