Hello,

I'm working with Energy plus right now to simulate some cases, but I have trouble interpreting the window's inner surface temperature output. In one of my cases, I use inner shades. The construction associated with the window contains the glazing but not the shades. The construction associated to the control contain the glazing and the shade. It seems to work fine.
My problem is that I'm unsure about what is the output of Output:Variable,*,Surface Inside Face Temperature,Hourly;. When it comes to the window, does it report the temperature of the inner glazing, or the temperature of the inner shade?
If it's the inner glazing temperature, how can I get the shades temperature? By using the complex fenestration system?

Thanks!
