I know ground temperatures for my site but not the C- or F-factors. How can I enter the temperatures (1 per month) into OS?

Thanks, Dan

I believe that, as in this question, your best bet is to write an EnergyPlus measure to input the Site:GroundTemperature:BuildingSurface object.

Please check my answer here. I have set only a single input variable that will set the temperature for the entire year. Monthly variation has not been provided for, but the code is flexible and can be extended.

Awesome, how can I access your measure and add it to my workflow?

Check out the video here. In the coding section, you may use the code that I have linked previously.
