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
Health benefits for those suffering from asthma or arthritis
