Customizable electrical heating solutions can provide main or supplemental heat for many — if not most — indoor and outdoor spaces. Marley Engineered Products, a national provider of reliable comfort heating and ventilation solutions, now offers a continuing education unit (CEU) focused on the capabilities and configuration options of many electrical heating devices and how they can be customized to suit every unique architectural or engineering demand.
The new CEU, titled “Discrete Heat When and Where Needed,” identifies how such solutions can be customized to harmonize with every architectural context while addressing the full range of health, safety, comfort and energy efficiency issues contemporary designers face.
“Many HVAC systems are designed to suit the main users of a space, but there are instances in mixed-use situations where all users are not adequately served,” said Jim Herring, product expert, field application specialist for Marley Engineered Products. “In these instances, adding custom-designed electrical heat sources achieves the desired result without visually impacting the building’s original design.”
This CEU program covers the benefits of supplemental heat and how it improves the efficiency and cost effectiveness of heating systems, available heating options and types, considerations for designers when specifying heating solutions and installation location, and approaches for customizing heating solutions for aesthetics.
“Because of the wide range of options available for heating device types, styles, sizes and finishes, designers have the luxury of choosing from a seemingly infinite range of solutions to address the inadequacies of supplemental heat sources discretely and efficiently,” Herring added.
Upon completing the CEU course, participants will be able to establish the correct balance between cost, aesthetics, performance and efficiency when designing an electrical heating solution plan. Through a series of case studies illustrating design visions and challenges presented by clients seeking high levels of discrete comfort to complement their uniquely complex projects, attendees will gain a better understanding of the categories of electrical heating systems that solve each problem.
The “Discrete Heat When and Where Needed” CEU is registered with The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Continuing Education Systems and several other industry associations. All participants will have their credits reported to AIA and the Registered Continuing Education Program (RCEP).
