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.

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
