I find that the ideal air load result is very low, about 70w/m2 or less. How do you deal with this problem? anyone can help?

How can I find the total heat load? someone said ventilation load isn't taken into account when running the ideal air load, I tried "design specification outdoor air", "space infiltration air flow rate" and "zone ventilation air flow rate", but cannot add the ventilation load.

Report the results using:

  TabAndHTML;              !- Column Separator

  AllSummary;              !- Report 1 Name

These are the inputs specific to outdoor air for the ZoneHVAC:IdealLoadsAirSystem. Enter the design specification outdoor air object name here and choose a name for the outdoor air node. You will also need to specify this node as an outdoor air node.

  YourDesignSpecName,         !- Design Specification Outdoor Air Object Name
  Outside Air Inlet Node 1,   !- Outdoor Air Inlet Node Name
  ,                           !- Demand Controlled Ventilation Type
  ,                           !- Outdoor Air Economizer Type

  Outside Air Inlet Node 1;   !- Name
