Greetings everyone,

I am relatively new to this list, and have been using eQUEST for only about
a year. I am modeling a 3-story office building with water-loop heat pumps,
but information from the building owner, architect, and engineer are very


The WSHPs are single-zone (as far as I know) and there are tons of them. In
eQUEST, do I have to create a separate zone for each one? If I make larger
zones (eg. grouping together perimeter offices), it creates heat pumps that
are too large. Is there any way to simplify the zoning and retain the proper
heat pump size and number?
