Adiabatic boundaries on simulation of a middle-floor apartment

Hello!

I'm currently attempting to simulate the behaviour of a middle-floor apartment as a follow-up to previous simulations of an isolated house with the same house plan. Everything remained the same as in the house file, with the only change being that ceiling, floor, west and east exterior walls were set to adiabatic, assuming the temperatures of the adjacent apartments would be similar. North and south exterior walls remained the same and were the only walls with windows.

For the apartment, the indoor temperature reaches around 65ºC at the exact same time it would reach 49ºC on the house, and I'm sometimes getting differences of about 22ºC between the two.

This is obviously incorrect but I don't know how I could simulate an appartment other than implementing the changes I already have. Is there a way to more reliably mimic a real-life situation?

Thanks!
