Hello everyone,I'm a new in e+ journey,My question is why I have heating loads and cooling loads("Zone Ideal Loads Zone Total Cooling Rate" and "Zone Ideal Loads Zone Total Cooling Rate" both have the value larger than 0) at the same time and at the same room?In my understanding is that the value of higher one would substract the lower one then output it in correspondent column and the other one should be zero, Is there someting wrong with my inputs or else?

Set the output variables to report at the "detailed" frequency so that you see each timestep separately. Then there should not be any timesteps with both heating and cooling.
