Is the 'AirLoop Component Load Summary' indicating the Block Load or Peak Load in EnergyPlus report?

The attached image suggests the 'AirLoop Component Load Summary' is indicating the Peak Load data. But when the zone level loads (fenestration solar, people, lights, etc.) are summed up, the difference suggests it might be the block load that is being indicated in the EnergyPlus report. Is this the case or is there any other section of the report which indicates the block loads of the air systems? Thank you in advance for your help.image description

@MagicAxe could you try to attach your image again? It doesn't look like it worked the first time.

The Zone Component Loads Summary is computed at times for the individual zones while the Airloop Component Loads Summary is computed at the time that the peak occurs for the airloop across all zones that are served by that airloop. In that way, the report is similar to a block load is calculated. Please take a look at the documentation for the report.
