Heating and cooling needs

Postby Dac2 » Fri Dec 14, 2018 2:23 am

How can I have heating and cooling needs of a building? To be clear is not zone heating or zone cooling because they consider the energy delivered by the sistem. I want to have just the needs.

The heating and cooling needs are only determined if there is an HVAC system present on the model ( for free running buildings it is normally added Cooling and Heating with COP of 1 or use District Heating/Cooling).

The Heating and Cooling loads will be reported on the System loads graph.
