Change voids into windows & Add night-time protection to voids

Postby fbougiatioti » Thu Apr 11, 2019 3:00 pm

Hello,
I am simulating a historic building with no glazing (so all openings were created as voids), but I would like to do 2 things, which I cannot manage to do:
1_Change voids into windows (just to compare): Is there a way to do this, or do I have to delete them and add windows instead of voids?
2_Apply night-time insulation to the voids: I have done all the steps that are described > apply window shading with a night-time, air-temperature control, but the model does not seem to react (ach remain identical to the model without night-time protection). Is it because I have voids instead of windoww, ie. the option is not activated unless I have openings?
Thank you in advance!
