This means that radiant cooling systems may impact zone cooling loads in several ways: (1) heat is removed from the zone through an additional heat transfer pathway (radiant heat transfer) compared to air systems, which rely on convective heat transfer only; (2) by cooling the inside surface temperatures of non-active exterior building walls, higher heat gain through the building envelope may result; and (3) radiant heat exchange with non-active surfaces also reduces heat accumulation in building mass, thereby affecting peak cooling loads.
