[Equest-users] Properly modeling PTAC and Baseboard system

Hi everyone,

I have a (hopefully simple) question on how to model a senior living center HVAC system.  Central natural gas boiler provide heating which is delivered through baseboards and cooling is provided by through-wall AC units (one per each apartment).

I've modeled the system as Cooling: DX coils; Heating: None; System Type: PTAC (no heating).  I'm currently in the DD Wizard so on Wizard Screen 6 I've selected Baseboard source as Hot Water Loop.

I'm hoping that someone can confirm this is the correct way to model this system.

Thanks very much.
