Heating our education
There are currently over 100 million students in Europe and as they spend around 70% of their time indoors an optimal indoor environment is crucial. Heating educational facilities can be a challenge as many of them take advantage of the natural light by installing large window sections. With glazing, however, comes a set of challenges. During the summer the windows act as a magnifier for sunrays and the room temperature quickly rockets to skyhigh degrees. The opposite problem occurs during the winter, when windows allow for chilling cold draughts. When heating educational facilities, adaptability in the heat source is the key, and that is best achieved with a radiator with low water content.
The optimal temperature for learning
As it turns out, there is an optimal temperature for learning. A test carried out by Fraunhofer IBP (2015) shows that the classroom temperature has a significant effect on students’ test scores and that both over- and under temperatures result in a lower test score. That’s why educational heating isn’t just regular heating.
Adaptable, economic and green heating with low water content
Radiators with a large surface and low water content are regulated very quickly and thus have a minimum of accumulated heat. A fast adaptation to external influences means a lower level of energy consumption and lower CO₂ levels, which essentially benefit the environment and keep heating costs down. By using radiators instead of underfloor heating and other heavy heat sources, you avoid over-temperatures, achieve optimal and instant climate adaptation, and have less heat loss at the correct temperature.
