I have setting an energy model with Open Studio. I have not consider HVAC system, so I have only ideal air load. I would like to know electric consumption for heating and cooling.

after the simulation, within "results summary" label, there are some table about energy consumption for lighting and equipment but nothing for heating and cooling. Why? How do I set the ideal HVAC

Ideal air loads doesn't know what fuel you are going to use for heating and cooling. For consumption look at district heating and cooling tables at the bottom of the results.

hi, thanks for the answer I have seen the tables. I have energy consumption in district cooling, but nothing in district heating.

Which settings do I have to check ? Where do I have to set the fuel ? Can I change the units?

Ideal loads does not have a selection for fuel type; it always uses district heating/cooling. If there is no heating consumption, then the first place to check is the thermostat heating setpoint schedule.
