[EnergyPlus_Support] Re: LowTemperatureRadiant.. Zone energy/rate output missing?

It's an old message, but I noticed the same results. I think that the variable that one has to consider in order to see the heat that is provided by heated floors is "Hydronic Low Temp Radiant Heating Rate".
I guess that "Zone/Sys Sensible Heating Rate" regards heat that is transmitted directly from the HVAC system to zone air, while a heated floor transmits heat from the HVAC system to a floor/slab. 
For a zone that is equipped with a fan coil (no mechanical ventilation, no other HVAC system), I have the opposite problem: "Zone/Sys Sensible Heating Rate" > 0 (throughout the day and it isn't negligible) although there is no water flow through the fan coil.
Could it be a problem of my model? I have warnings regarding the convergence of the HVAC system.

I've modelled the HVAC system only for one of this apartment to check if it works good. The HVAC system is simple, 3 zone with radiant floor modelled as "LowTemperatureRadiant:VariableFlow", 2 with wall radiators modelled as "Baseboard:RadiantConvective:Water". Source is a typical condensed boiler.

But when I open output's file (with resultviewer) zones with radiant floor have "Zone/Sys Sensible Heating Energy" and "Zone/Sys Sensible Heating Rate" equal to 0.. Instead values for radiators are >0. Why this happen? How can I evaluate energy consumption of zone with radiant floor?
