The operation of the ceiling
The ‘engine’ of the PareauLux climate ceiling system consists of elements of finely meshed expanded metal on which copper pipe grinders are soldered. In these so-called climate elements, cold or hot water is supplied, depending on whether there is a need for cooling or heating in the room. The heat exchange takes place on the basis of a combination of radiation and convection, which is experienced as very pleasant. This in contrast to so-called all-air or convective systems, such as fan convectors or split units, where energy transfer takes place exclusively by means of air. In climate ceilings, the air supply is determined on the basis of the need for fresh air and not the required cooling capacity. The air circulation in the room is therefore lower than with convective systems and the risk of draft is minimal. The temperature is adjustable per room or control area.
