Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Geometry questions

I would do neither -- the ceiling height is not used in most EnergyPlus calculations, and  you can let EnergyPlus calculate it (use autocalculate as the field value). 

Similarly for zone volume, let it autocalculate and only enter it if you find that the calculation is not accurate due to your different ceiling heights.

(both values are shown in the .eio file -- described in the Output Details document).

I got few questions, Most of them about geometry.

1. I made a model of a zone but this model got two celling height.
In the Zone section in E+ I need to enter the celling height of the zone. which one do I use? The lower the higher one or average?

Lets say that the celling is 2.7m if I stand in the house.
2. In E+, Do I put it like that or do I add the hieght of the floor and celling?

3. How do I take count of that in the second floor?
