I have a model wherein I have two separate heating coils (electrical resistance and supplemental heating). However, existing meters and variables only seem to give me total Energy transfer. How can I get the Energy Transfer for each heating coil separately?

Add an Output:Variable for each coil:

Output:Variable,
  Example Coil Name 1, !- Key Value
  Heating Coil Heating Rate, !- Variable Name
  Timestep;                  !- Reporting Frequency

Output:Variable,
  Example Coil Name 2, !- Key Value
  Heating Coil Heating Rate, !- Variable Name
  Timestep;                  !- Reporting Frequency

Or use the variable name 'Heating Coil Heating Energy' instead. Valid reporting frequencies are 'Detailed', 'Timestep', 'Hourly', 'Monthly', 'Annual', or 'RunPeriod'.
