2016-06-21 19:59:13 -0600 asked a question How not to autosize baseboard heater ?

Hello, I am trying to model a baseboard heater (object HVACTemplate:Zone:BaseBoardHeat), with a specific heating capacity (field "Baseboard Heating Capacity" filled with 1000 Watts). I don't want to size the baseboard. But when I run E+, I have the following error : * Severe * For autosizing of ZoneHVAC:Baseboard:RadiantConvective:Water HUT 1 BASEBOARD HEAT, a zone sizing run must be done. I don't want to run a zone sizing either. Can you help me on this ? Thank you! Paul

I am trying to model an oil heater, meaning a simple radiator such as the ZoneHVAC:Baseboard:RadiantConvective:Water, but with oil instead of hot water inside the radiator. Is it possible ? Thank you ! (forgive my English if there are mistakes)

I am quiet new, using EnergyPlus. I have been looking to EnergyPlus inputs and I am not sure how to create an underground heating system, made of several layers. The specific heating element I would like to model is foil heaters (total power rating 725W). The ground in made out of : - floor - gypsum board - foil heaters - floor

Can anyone help me on this ? I would be very thankful! Regards
