How long do you think modern radiant cooling technology has been around? Five years? Ten?
Although radiant cooling is relatively new to the United States, it has been popular throughout Europe for quite some time!
Recognized as the “father of modern radiant cooling,” Italian scientist and inventor Roberto Messana first began experimenting with radiant floor cooling in 1991. He then created the first gypsum radiant ceiling panel in 1998. It wasn’t until 2011 that we brought radiant cooling technology to the United States!
In his latest book, “Radiant Architecture,” which is the result of over thirty years of research and experiments, Roberto Messana established the scientific basis for the relationship between the physiology of the human body and its energy processes with the constructed environment to achieve thermal comfort. Having built thousands of systems, Messana has gained unique expertise in radiant cooling and heating technology.
Although radiant cooling may not be the norm in the United States, it has proven itself as an efficient and reliable way to regulate the climate of an indoor environment over the last twenty years!
We are proud to be pioneers in the development of radiant cooling technology, and we can’t wait to watch as radiant cooling grows in popularity in the United States. Feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have about radiant cooling and heating technology!
