The air distribution is about 50 to 60 percent less, and is for ventilation and moisture 31 32 RADIANT COOLING removal. The ceiling panels are available in standard ceiling tile patterns or other finishes. Benefits of radiant cooling systems are: 1. A draft-free environment is achieved. Drafts are a main source of complaints from occupants. 2. A lower noise level is achieved. Reduced airflow reduces duct- and equipment-generated noise. 3. The system does not take up any floor space, but rather gives back floor space in the building because of reduced airshafts and smaller mechanical rooms.

Human thermal comfort is a function of six variables3: ᭿ The air temperature in the environment ᭿ The air velocity in the environment ᭿ The mean radiant temperature 2 Peterson, Andrew.
