[EnergyPlus_Support] Heating load

Thank you your answer.
I check results of heating load which you presented in your message.
But the load is not similar yet.
Please tell me more knowledges.
and usally, how calculates heating load in Energy Plus ?
Heat balence or another mothod ?

Have a nice day..

UAdeltaT only applies for steady-state heat transfer. Run with a 
DESIGNDAY with constant temperature (Daily Temperature Range = 0), 
solar (Sky Clearness=0), and no internal gains. You should be able 
to match the UAdeltaT calculation. Be sure to use the interior and 
exterior convection coefficients reported in the output.
