Hello! I helped create the Measure. It should work, if you can edit the .idf before simulating. Can you do that? If so, change your ZoneInfiltration:DesignFlowRate object so that the schedule associated with the "infiltratation off" correlations is set to "always on". Then, set the schedule of the "infiltration on" correlations to be "always off". Make sense?

I believe you can do as Lisa suggested from within OS as well via Spaces -> Properties -> Airflow -> Space Infiltration Design Flow Rates and setting the Schedule of each OS:SpaceInfiltration:DesignFlowRate object accordingly.
