I'm modeling a building and i need to calculate the energy request for heating and cooling. I've set the output "Zone predicted sensible load to setpoint heat transfer rate" [W] with hourly timestep and then i'm calculating the total energy request [kWh]. As result, the energy request is very low both for heating and cooling, surely understimated. Does anyone have feedback about this problem?

In order to know the NET htg/clg energy consumption I always used the Ideal Load Air System and then asked for its output (see the RDD fiel after a first run). I will try with this and than investigate differencies, if present
