Members of Canada’s Plumbing and HVAC Associations and Institutes are behind a nationwide initiative funded by a collective of blue chip manufacturers with support of CIPH/CHC for the sole purpose of educating consumers and the construction industry on the natural benefits of conditioning people and spaces with radiant based HVAC systems.
The campaign’s tag line of “Beautiful Heat” is to establish the beautiful comfort achieved by a building mass warmed using tepid fluid running through embedded pipes in interior surfaces in lieu of using hot air to condition people and spaces. Radiant is an ancient and historically preferred method where heat loss from the body is suppressed by warmed surfaces allowing the occupants to retain their own body heat rather than sacrificing it to otherwise colder floors, walls and ceilings.
You see people don’t feel the heat loss from the building they feel the heat loss from their skin…“suppress loss of heat from your skin and you improve your comfort” – it’s just that easy and simple.
For consumers, the Beautiful Heat website is easy to navigate wonderfully illustrated and provides sufficient details without over burdening you with technical, sales and marketing information frequently found on more “retail sites”.
If you are renovating, remediating, restoring or building new – this is a must visit site where you’ll be able to find a qualified service provider near your location.
There is a no cost opportunity for professionals who wish to join the network of skilled service providers, and for those who wish to develop skills in this arena there is a number of educational programs available. The process is painless and puts you in a fraternity of those who understand the relationship between buildings, energy and thermal comfort and the beautiful heat benefits enjoyed by the occupants.
I’ve joined and so should you.
