[Bldg-sim] Baseboard heaters in VAV system

I've got a building that cools with shutoff VAV boxes and heats with
perimeter hydronic baseboard heaters.
When I'm setting up my system, do I specify hot water baseboard heaters
and leave the Zone Heat Source set to "Not Installed", or do I specify a
hot water loop for the Zone Heat Source, and eQuest knows to apply this
to the baseboard heaters and NOT the shutoff VAV boxes?
I currently have the Zone Heat Source as "Not Installed", but it appears
from my SS-R reports that there are hundreds of hours of underheating,
so something is not working correctly.  I've had my hot water loop set
to snap, demand, and scheduled, so I think the loop is running
Thanks in advance!
