How does a climate ceiling work?

A climate ceiling is a so-called delivery system with which a room can be cooled and / or heated.

The basis is an architectural (metal) ceiling that is equipped with water-bearing climate elements. In these so-called radiation panels, cold or hot water is fed according to whether there is a need for cooling or heating in the room. The energy exchange takes place mainly on the basis of radiation, which is experienced as very pleasant. This is in contrast to so-called all-air or convective systems, such as for example fan coil units or split units, where the energy transfer takes place by means of air.

With climate ceilings, the air supply is determined based on the need for fresh air and not on the required cooling capacity. The air circulation in the room is therefore lower than with convective systems and the chance of drafts is minimal. The temperature is adjustable per room or control area. Depending on the set and measured temperature, a motor-operated valve is controlled that controls the water supply to the climate ceiling. The amount of water over the ceiling determines the capacity that the climate ceiling provides and thus the temperature in the room.
