This video, created by Science & Engineering in the Lives of Students (SELS), provides a brief overview of radiation, focusing specifically on its implications on housing development and applications. Radiant energy is experienced as both heat and light, so learning more about how radiative transfer can effect home building and architecture can both influence design and help consumers save money on bills. For example, the color and angle of roofs, solar panels, windows design are all important factors in keeping a home comfortable. Also the advantages of new radiative heat systems including energy conservation and efficiency are discussed.
