Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] about building's thermal loads
Thermal loads are not meaningful unless the inside space temperature is
maintained at the desired level. The only way to do this is to use Purchased
Air (as explained in the previous response) which will report the sensible
heating and/or cooling load required to maintain the specified temperature(s).
I presume that you are trying to understand the effects of various envelope
design changes? If you wish to let the space temperature float, then perhaps
you should use average, maximum, and minimum zone temperatures as a measure of
envelope performance. For such a study, you must also consider the free
cooling that ventilation air can provide by including INFILTRATION or
VENTILATION or the results may lead to conclusions such as more insulation is a
