Hello every one, I am trying to add underfloor electric heater with Phase change materials to transfer the heat from underfloor to the zone. I added PCM material property in slab but I am confused about the Electric heater data.

can anyone guide me to add Electric radiant floor heater, which property is to heat the PCM material and the PCM material can release the heat and the people feels the heat at zone.

Can you just use the electric baseboard heater and set the thermostat setting to the PCM melting point? You can place both in the raised floor space and then set your flooring material?

At under floor, electric heating mesh is placed. which is connected to the thermostat only to operate. so, I have question that how can I add this to energy-plus.
