Today’s Radiator: Historic Integrity Paired With Optimal Heating Performance

AIA registered course ID:


GBCI registered course:



1 CE hour

Purposeful materials selection is a priority in any design. For restorations and renovations, product selection means more. Professionals who re-use the building’s existing materials not only preserve historic beauty but also reduce the embodied carbon of the building. On a rare occasion, a re-used product can deliver even more.

This course features that one product – the cast-iron radiator. Of course, we’ll discuss the history and beauty of the radiator. Most importantly, we’ll talk about how a century-old product can deliver a modern, energy-efficient heating system with less environmental impact than other options.

  1. Discuss the history of the cast-iron radiator and its contribution to buildings for over a century.
  2. Explain the types of heat transfer and how the radiator warms a room more effectively while reducing energy consumption.
  3. Describe the radiator restoration process including the steps to electrification. Explain how the electric radiator supports today’s multi-zone management.
  4. Understand the radiator’s contribution to green building as the ultimate re-use example. Explain the product’s closed-loop life-cycle, reduced embodied carbon, and lower energy consumption. 
  5. Describe a case study and third-party analysis of the energy and cost savings after restoration and electrification of a church’s historic radiators.
