[Equest-users] Gas INFRA-RED Radiant

Hi Arash,

There are a couple right answers.  Here's an approach I've used:

*         System type UHT

*         Zero out fan energy (0.00 kW/CFM), if there are no space circulation fans tied to your IR heater operation

*         eQuest doesn't simulate the skin-heating comfort effects of radiant heat.  If you run into unmet heating hours, you can justifiably lower associated thermotat setpoints to account for this.

*         DOE2 help files advise adjusting your HIR to 1.05 if products of combustion are not being vented out of the space (industrial applications).

Hi all,

First of all sorry about the previous message.

I have a storage using gas infra-red radiant heaters. Is there accurate way to model this.
Thank you in advance for your help.
