Green Building Lecture Series- Thursday, April 4 - Beating the Summer heat with Radiant Cooling

Did you know that 43 percent of all electricity consumed in Phoenix metro area homes is used for air conditioning? Learn about radiant heat and efficient ways to remove that heat while improving summer comfort and saving energy dollars. Hear about houses that never use conventional air-conditioning while staying comfortably cool in mid-summer.

Radiant cooling systems have been widely used in Europe for some time and they are starting to become more popular in North America, especially in the hot and dry climates of the southwest. Radiant cooling offers many of the same benefits as radiant heating: comfortable, efficient and quiet.


Southern Arizona builder Michael Ginsburg will provide an overview of radiant cooling systems and their advantages. Hear how hydronic radiant cooling in the S.E.E.D. Home™ (Super Energy Efficient Design) provides exceptional cooling and comfort in hot/dry climates earning an award from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Research Council based on two years of monitoring and testing.
