“We are honored to be associated with CBE,” said Mark Parent, Director of Product Management. “There is a lack of industry knowledge when it comes to radiant heating and cooling. Our hope is to help educate the industry on newer and more efficient technologies when designing commercial integrated hydronics systems.”
CBE’s recently received grant will be funding work related to radiant slab cooling, researching how to optimize radiant systems for maximum energy efficiency and comfort. This research will provide performance data to develop design and control guidelines. Viega and CBE are also collaborating to provide training sessions to leverage these research results to create innovative product advancements and design guidelines. Sessions are planned for May and November on both coasts, be on the lookout for further information soon.
