atria zone type

Postby marveh594 » Mon Jul 06, 2015 3:32 pm

Hi i have a central atria in mu building with cover glass roof.It is with no occupance however room windows can open to the atria for air exchange. questions:

1) what is the zone type i have to select? ( semi exterioe unconditioned or plenum?)

2) If i select either of the above it means no heating and cooling would be in the atria. however i would like to have natural cooling via opening the atria top glazed roof when needed. would it take into consideration the natural ventilation is roof glass opens?

Thank you so much for your help (even answering question 1 would help)
