I am quiet new, using EnergyPlus. I have been looking to EnergyPlus inputs and I am not sure how to create an underground heating system, made of several layers. The specific heating element I would like to model is foil heaters (total power rating 725W). The ground in made out of : - floor - gypsum board - foil heaters - floor

Can anyone help me on this ? I would be very thankful! Regards

I think you mean underfloor heater (i.e., heated floor or radiant floor) rather than underground heater. Yes?
