About - Comparative Performance of Radiant vs Fan Coil Cooling Systems (Sproul Hall)
This project evaluates the occupant comfort and energy use of radiant cooling and heating systems over convention fan coils in Sproul Hall at UC Davis. Monitored equipment data from eight rooms (half with radiant and half with fan coils) and surveys from occupants were collected and analyzed. The radiant system was found to provide a comparable level of comfort to the fan coils. Further work includes collection of humidity and equipment power draw data in order to provide better insight into energy uses of the each system.
