False ceiling: plenum or layer of air in construction? (in EnergyPlus)

I want to simulate a room with false ceiling in EnergyPlus. Could you please let me know which of the following methods is correct and why?

1- To define a multilayered construction for ceiling including a layer of air equivalent to the height of the false ceiling 2- To define a plenum zone above the room (the room height reduced).

Thanks
