Hello Wafik.

One question you might ask is why you have 476 spaces in EQUEST?

Normally, a space is needed only if that zone has a unique load, usage, external exposure or HVAC system. Otherwise, it is more common to use a simplified zoning. For example, 5 zones are normally used for a rectangular building of more than 50 ft in depth. At most, for a multistory building, three floors can be used, one for the top floor, one for the middle floors, and one for the ground floor.

Hence, you might consider reducing the number of zones before proceeding.

good day every body,

instead of going one by one then doing the same for the thermal zones!
