Using prototype building models in other locations

Hi everyone. I am planning to use the residential prototype building model listed here for some simulations in New York. But based on the description "... which is then simulated across 16 climate locations for each edition of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC), the idf for climate zone 4A seems to be developed for Baltimore only.

My question is can I use this 4A prototype to simulate residential buildings in other locations in the same climate zone? Or it has to be Baltimore?

Thank you.

Yes. You can use the prototype building models in other locations by using the different locations.
