Learning Objectives

1. Discuss the history of the cast-iron radiator and its contribution to buildings for over a century.

2. Explain the types of heat transfer and how the radiator warms a room more effectively while reducing energy consumption.

3. Describe the radiator restoration process including the steps to electrification. Explain how the electric radiator supports today’s multi-zone management.

4. Understand the radiator’s contribution to green building as the ultimate re-use example. Explain the product’s closed-loop life-cycle, reduced embodied carbon, and lower energy consumption.

Good training, was very informative. I did not realize radiators were so efficient and that they could be converted to electric powered that is very interesting! The refurbishment process was also very cool and oddly satisfying to see.

Madison

Was good.

Daniel

As someone who sees a lot of radiators, I really enjoyed this presentation.

Elizabeth

It was very interesting.

Claudia

Interesting information.

Niklas

Excellent program, I was not aware of the flexibility of cast iron radiators and how efficient they are.

Ricardo

I enjoyed the seminar. Before hearing about radiator restoration, I did not know the operation was available so thanks. I am assuming your rating system is 5 for best. If not please change my rating to best.

I grew up with radiators and found them to be excellent at heating rooms as opposed to the baseboard heating in many homes in the late 20th century.

20 years ago, I gathered old radiators and had them sand blasted and repainted. We didn't have them cleaned inside as your video suggested, but they seemed ok. We put 11 of them of various sizes in an addition to our house, tying them in to the existing hot water boiler for the old (1903) part of the house; the boiler was relatively new and had been sized to accommodate an addition using cast iron radiators. Since then, we have had a heat pump installed for whole house use. However, we use it only in the summer for cooling, much preferring the even comforting heat of the old radiators.

Today’s Radiator: Historic Integrity Paired With Optimal Heating Performance

FREE

For architects, purposeful materials selection is a priority in any design. For restorations and renovations, product selection means more. Designers who re-use the building’s existing materials not only preserve historic beauty but also reduce the embodied carbon of the building. On a rare occasion, a re-used product can deliver even more. This course features that one product – the cast-iron radiator. Of course, we’ll discuss the history and beauty of the radiator. Most importantly, we’ll talk about how a century-old product can deliver a modern, energy-efficient heating system with less environmental impact than other options.

Credits: 1 AIA HSW + 1 GBCI (USGBC/CAGBC) + 1 AIBD Primary + 1 Sustainable Design + 1 AIBC Core LU + 1 AAA Structured LU + 1 OAA, OAQ, SAA, MAA, AAPEI, NWTAA

Length: 1 hour
