OpenStudio: Ideal Air Loads were turned on for a thermal zone that has no HVAC system, what does this mean? I found that overall cooling and fan electricity consumption decreased.

Ideal Air Loads will report the total district heating and cooling load that building experiences. It's not an actual HVAC system, so it won't have any fan electricity. Please refer to the input/output reference for more information.

The ideal loads are reported as "district" loads if I recall correctly.

district heating also includes water heating?
